What does it mean ‘prudent virgin’?
The answer is here:
Most abnormal discharges are caused by STIs
Most ulcers and lesions are caused by STIs
Sexually Transmitted Disease Prevention
according to mainstream science of medical epidemiology.
A prudent virgin is not suspected of being infected with Sexually Transmitted Infections. This has been known for centuries to the medical profession, our patients, and their direct sexual contacts or careres.

To the Editor:—What is the incidence of bartholinitis in virgins, or is it always a result of sexual contamination?
Answer.—Bartholinitis nearly always occurs in women who have had sexual intercourse. It is rare to observe this condition in a virgin but it is conceivable that it may occur in young girls afflicted with gonorrheal vulvovaginitis. The duct of Bartholin's gland is about 0.5 mm. in diameter and any irritation, such as a gonorrheal infection, diphtheritic involvement or other condition which produces a vaginitis and vulvitis, might bring about an agglutination of the walls of the duct, thereby preventing the escape of the gland contents. If the infection is virulent, an abscess will result.
Bartholin cysts and abscesses may occur in the absence of a gonorrheal infection. Cysts particularly may result if scar tissue from childbirth injuries should obstruct the duct of the gland.
The paired Bartholin's glands (also called Bartholin glands or greater vestibular glands) are located just about below and to the left and right of the opening of the vagina and by a 1-cm-long ducts they secrete one or two drops of fluid (mucus) to slightly moisten the vestibulum of the vagina when a female is sexually aroused.
Any contact of the vestibulum of the vagina with a vector of an infection (penis, tongue, finger, toy, genital secretion, saliva, feaces) or rubbing the inner part of the vulva instead of the clitoris solely, can end in painful unilateral or less commonly bilateral lumps of bartholinitis in its acute, chronic and complicated form (Bartholin's cyst, abscess).
Bartholin's glands were first described in 1667 by the Danish anatomist Caspar Bartholin the Younger. His grandfather, Caspar Bartholin the Elder described the hymen as ‘virginity flower’ (in Latin ‘flos virginitatis) in 1632 .
