Q. 2

During rape on a virgin, rupture of hymen occurs at the following degree:

 A

4

 B

6

 C

11

 D

12

Ans. A

Explanation:

Tearing of hymen in a virgin during rape usually occurs posteriorly at the sides, in the 4 or 8 O’clock position, or in the middle line of the hymen.
More than two tears are unusual.
Tears usually occur in the posterior midline of the hymen because the hymen lies suspended across a potential space, whereas anteriorly the periurethral tissues buttress the hymen.

 A

4 – 8 O’clock

Hymen

  • The hymen is a thin, firm fold of mucous membrane present at the vaginal orifice. It usually has one opening, which hardly admits the tip of the little finger in a virgin.
  • The hymen is like a tightly stretched membrane. The usual shape is annular or semilunar, that is, crescentic with the broader part lying posteriorly.
  • It may be imperforate, leaving no opening; cribriform having a number of small openings or separate having two openings.
  • Hymen usually ruptures at the time of first sexual intercourse and usually ruptures posterolaterally (4 or 8 O’ clock or 5 or 7 O’ clock position) or posteriorly (6 O’clock position).

Q. 6

Most common hymen rupture in a virgin is ‑

 A Anterior

 B

Anterolateral

 C

Posterolateral

 D

Posterior

Ans. C

Explanation:

Ans. is ‘c’ i.e., Posterolateral

Hymen rupture:

  • Congenital : anterior
  • Due to intercourse or foreign body: posterolateral ( 4/8 or 5/7 0′ clock) > posterior (6 0′ clock).
  • In virgin rupture (tears) of hymen due to sudden stretching occurs in the posterior half of membrane usually at the sides (i.e. posterolaterally) at 4 or 8’O clock or 5 or 7’O clock position, or in the midline of the hymen (6’O clock position).
  • With first intercourse tears usually occur in posterior midline because the hymen lies suspended across a potential space here, whereas anteriorly periurethral tissues buttress the hymen.
  • More than 2 tears are unusual, Semilunar hymen often ruptures on both sides. Annular hymen which nearly closes up the vaginal orifice may suffer several hymenal lacerations that indicate first sexual intercourse.
  • One deep ‘V-shaped cleft/tear at 6′ 0clock or several clefts usually in posterior half hymen membrane indicate the passage of any object through hyme orifice which is larger it’s original opening.’
  • In prepubertal children, the posterior tear may involve fourchette producing a deep U shaped defect. Fourchette is torn, fossa navicularis disappear and posterior commissure may be ruptured. The latter injury usually does not occur in consenting sexual intercourse unless there are many disproportions between the male and female parts.
