Thank you for posting a query.

It is really strange. I can understand your concern.

My advise is to go to another doctor for examination and opinion about persistence of hymen even after one year of regular intercourse.

It may occur in some rare conditions with very thick and abnormal hymen. If that is the case, then it has to be operated before child birth or caesarian section will be must for delivery.

But, it is impractical to comment on this here. Because, you really need a clinical examination. So, consult with another gynecologist for clinical examination using speculum.

Hope this information suffices. Let me know, if you have any more question.

Hi, my boyfriend and I had unprotected sex but he didn t ejaculate inside me. Also, he penetrated but not so deep so my hymen didn t break. I was scared and we stopped. But after some research, I found out that there are possibilities of getting pregnant without breaking the hymen. As a precaution, I took Nordette as an ECP, as there s none sold here in the Philippines. I took my first 4 pills on June 1, 2:30PM, 29hrs after the deed, and took my second dose of 4 pills on June 2, 2:30AM. It s been 4 days since the last intake and I have only experienced slight nausea for a short period of time after the 2nd dose. There is still no withdrawal bleeding and I m afraid that the pill isn t working on me. I also have an irregular period and I ve been delayed for almost 3 months before the said intercourse. How will I now that Nordette is working? What will I next do if I don t bleed within the next week? Thanks!

I got married last year. My wife & I are having sex regularly. During a recent gynac visit the Doctor said that still the hymen is intact in her. I need to enter more deep & break it as soon as possible. Is that right? But all these days we had enjoyed our sexual act (both of us). I have good erection all times. Is is really required to break it?

Dear Doctor, I would sincerley like to know what it is I'am currently experiencing. I had gotten close with my boyfriend recently and he inserted his penis into my vagina and made slow movements. He did not fully penetrate, however i noticed blood on the sheet. We did not do anything thereafter as I was suprised. I have read about the Hymen and its location and want to find out if there is a possiblilty I may have broken my hymen with such slow movement to the vagina I'am really concerned. If it means I have does that mean I will never bleed again during intercourse as I hope to.i have irregular periods.while going for treatement whether doctors can find out the hymen broken.?
