Background: The virginity is a matter of concern in many eastern countries, especially Muslim societies. In some cultures, integrity of hymen before marriage causes deprivation of social rights for the females; even in some cases an honor killing is plausible.

Materials and methods: In this descriptive cross-sectional study, total records of all virgin patients who underwent hysteroscopy for medical reasons in Hazrat Rasool Hospital between 2004 and 2014 were studied. Data were analyzed by SPSS version 19 using descriptive scales and simple proportion and ratios.

Results: 400 women with AUB (abnormal uterine bleeding) were referred to Hazrat Rasool Hospital for the diagnosis and treatment. 12 cases (3%) were virgin and 388 (97%) were non-virgins. In 12 Virgin patients admitted for hysteroscopy, 3 (25%) hymenal damage were reported, and in 9 virgin patients hymen remained intact postoperatively.

Conclusion: Regarding the high prevalence of congenital and acquired uterine diseases and successful treatment of these problems by hysteroscopy, it seems prudential to focus on more comprehensive teaching programs in the gynecologic endoscopic field. This will help better and earlier diagnosis and treatment of virgin patients, due to seeking earlier medical care.
