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.
