Abstract 

Microperforate hymen is a congenital obstructive vaginal membrane with a tiny opening. It is usually detected long before menarche because of recurring vulvovaginitis and urinary tract infection. We report a case of microperforate hymen in a 27-year-old women presenting oligomenorrhea, in whom the location of the tiny opening on the hymenal membrane was detected by withdrawal bleeding without anesthesia, and definitively diagnosed preoperatively by using hysterofiberscopy.

Key words Microperforate hymen Hysterofiberoscopy Withdrawal bleeding
