I have this fleshy oval thing thats blocking my viginal hole and i dont know what it is.
I dont know if it is an imperforate hymen because i thought hymens were a thin layer of
skin but mine is really thick. I've thought about going to the doctors and seeing what it
acually is but I dont want to go to the doctors if it isnt that serious. PLEASE HELP!!!!

Hello Anonymous,

Thank you for reaching out to us for help. You must be evaluated by a physician to determine if this thick tissue is normal or not.

The hymen is a thin perforated membrane that partially closes the opening of the vagina.

An imperforate hymen is a thin membrane that completely covers the opening to the vagina. Menstrual blood cannot flow out of the vagina. This usually causes the blood to back up into the vagina which often develops into an abdominal mass and abdominal and/or back pain. Some teens may also have pain with bowel movements and difficulty passing urine.

A microperforate hymen is a thin membrane that almost completely covers the opening to a young women’s vagina. Menstrual blood is usually able to flow out of the vagina but the opening is very small. A teen with a microperforate hymen usually will not be able to insert a tampon into her vagina and may not realize that she has a very tiny opening.

A septate hymen is when the thin hymenal membrane has a band of extra tissue in the middle that causes two small vaginal openings instead of one. Teens with a septate hymen may have trouble getting a tampon in or trouble getting a tampon out.

I hope this helps, but you really need to see a doctor.
