Hymen

The hymen is a flimsy bit of mucosal tissue that encompasses or somewhat covers the outer vaginal opening. It shapes some portion of the vulva, or outside genitalia, and is comparable in structure to the vagina. During adolescence, estrogen makes the hymen change in appearance and become versatile.

A thin membrane that surrounds the opening to the vagina. Hymens can come in different shapes. The most common hymen in young women is shaped like a half moon. This shape allows menstrual blood to flow out of the vagina.
