Welcome to ehealthforum,
Hymen is a membrane that surrounds or partially covers the external vaginal opening, and forms part of the vulva, or external genitalia, and is similar in structure to the vagina. It can be thick or thin and has opening through which menstrual blood comes out. To confirm if hymen is intact or broken, visit your doctor/gynecologist.
Take care.
