The most common formation of the hymen is crescentic or crescent-shaped, although several other formations are possible.
After a woman gives birth she may be left with remnants of the hymen called carunculae myrtiformes or the hymen may be completely absent. In societies which value chastity, the greatest significance of the hymen is a traditional belief that an intact hymen indicates a state of intact virginity.
