How does a doctor know that my daughter has imperforate hymen?

An imperforate hymen can be diagnosed in infancy, childhood or puberty. Sometimes, the hymen doesn't cause a problem until a girl's teenage years when she has her first period. During an examination, your daughter's gynecologist can confirm that there is no opening to her hymen.
