Introduction: Despite the undeniable value of "virginity", misconceptions and value system changes related to virginity has become a serious threat to the sexual health of communities in recent decades.
 Object: This study is aimed to investigate the conception virginity and its role in reproductive health promotion.
Methods: This review was done through information related to 1980 to 2015 getting from SID, Ovid Science Direct, Pub Med, Pro Quest, Iran Medex, Google, Scirus, Cochrane library, MD Consult, EBSCO, Scholar , UNFPA and WHO .
Findings: Despite Sexual abstinence approaches in recent decades which is a valuable step towards controlling the negative consequences of increasing premarital sex misconceptions such as the worth of female virginity worth versus the shame of male’s, the idea of keeping virginity despite oral and anal sex and wedding night bleeding as a sign of virginity and accepting of intact hymen as the only indicator of virginity face these approaches with failure. Besides by conflicts such as gender inequality and violence against women are threatened for reproductive health.
Conclusion:  Although in recent decades sexual abstinence approaches have become an opportunity to promote virginity and control of sexual transmitted diseases and teen pregnancy, misconceptions associated with virginity are serious threats to sexual abstinence. Therefore, the use of cultural, social and religious potentials of different societies to cope with the misconceptions and teaching of objective facts associated with virginity and hymen seems necessary to promote sexual abstinence.
