The hymen is a thin strip of vaginal mucosa (membrane) that runs through the vaginal canal’s bottom section. This membrane has reached its breaking point. During menstruation, the membrane does not cover the upper section of the vagina, enabling blood to flow freely. The hymen will break while participating in strenuous activities such as gymnastics, horseback riding, or cycling. The hymen can also be broken by tampons or a violent fall. Hymenoplasty surgery, also known as hymen repair, involves pulling the hymen ring and surrounding tissues closer together in a delicate and cautious operation.
