Could Virginal Introitus on a pelvic exam in my medical records mean I have an imperforate hymen? It does not say vaginal introitus, but virginal?
No. "Virginal introitus" doesn't have much meaning. It does not mean "imperforate hymen". The reason "virginal introitus" doesn't have much meaning is because a doctor usually cannot tell by looking, whether or not a woman has technically had sexual intercourse (a penis has entered the outermost space of her vaginal area).
I need help with my pelvic exam report. What is having a Virginal Introitus (It's Not vaginal introitus) mean on a pelvic exam? Is my hymen intact?
Description. The vaginal orifice is an introitus that leads to the vaginal canal. Virginal simply refers to the fact that the Doctor dictating the report (whom did your pelvic exam) is under the impression that you are a Virgin. You cannot infer that your hymen is intact purely from this description. Hope this helps. Read more...
