There are only really 2 types of hymen, perforate (open) and imperforate (closed). The perforate hymen can come in different types of opening (slit, septum or microperoforate). Which means that they are partially open. If you are seeing your periods, then it is perforate. Once you have intercourse, most hymens will tear to become normal.

Hymen


This is a piece of membranous tissue inside the vaginal opening. It comes in different shapes and sizes, the most common are annular, fimbriated, lunate, and septate. . Bleeding may occur with any disruption of the hymen regardless of its shape and this may occur with trauma, tampon use, sex or foreign bodies inserted into the vagina. Fimbriated means the edge is serpentine.

I believe the lump you are referring to is simply a remnant of the hymen which can form the hymenial ring.

For labial/vertical hymen type which its opening extends from 12 o'clock to 6 o'clock, from where does it rupture when it's broken?and does it bleed?

Answered by:
Dr. Jeff M. Livingston
Obstetrics and Gynecology

The hymen


The Hymen is a circular ring near the opening of the vagina. Contrary to popular cultural mythology most hymenal rings are open just fine the first time someone has intercourse. It stretches and tears at various spots that are likely unrecognizable to the untrained eye. Overthinking the appearance of the Hymenal ring is likely to be unproductive.
