         It is a thin layer of mucus membrane which closes to the vagina a little inside of the vaginal orifice. Often it is in the form of crescent and there is a hole at its center through which menstrual excretion comes out every month. Sometimes there are many small holes in it then it is called fenestrated hymen. Sometimes, there is no hole in it then this condition is called imperforate hymen. The menstrual excretion does not excrete outside and it keeps on gathering in the vagina and because of this reason the vagina gets bulged. In this case, a hole is made in it by surgery. Generally, hymen gets burst when a girl makes sexual relation on the very first time but it can be burst because of many physical activities or by using tampon.
