 Imperforate hymen is a rare vaginal anomaly in which a layer of epithelialized connective tissue that forms the hymen has no opening and completely obstructs the vaginal introitus. Hydrocolpos and hydrometrocolpos can occur secondary to this condition.
Normal uterus (womb) is a pear-shaped organ, tucked away in your pelvis. A  uterus is about 7.5cm long, 5cm wide and 2.5cm deep. Inside, it is hollow with thick muscular walls. The lower part of the uterus dips down into the vagina and is called the cervix.Common anomalies are Uterus didelphys,Unicornuate uterus,Bicornuate uterus,Septate uterus and Arcuate uterus.
