Hymen is a thin membrane-like tissue which covers the opening of the vagina. This membrane is tightly stretched. It has a small opening to allow for menstrual fluids to come out. When it ruptures, tiny fibrous remnants are left attached to the walls of the vagina. An intact hymen was earlier and, in many cultures still considered as a symbol of woman’s virginity.
For the sake of traditional beliefs and values, it is important for some women that at the first sexual intercourse after marriage the hymen bleeds. But the hymen is a so thin a tissue that may be torn in many non-sexual ways too. The hymen may tear when participating in active sports such as gymnastics, horseback riding, or cycling.
The use of tampons or an intense fall can also break the hymen. Hymenoplasty Surgery or Hymen Repair is a very delicate and meticulous procedure that places the hymen ring and tissues close to each other.
Who is it for?
Hymen Repair is not a suitable option for women who had a vaginal delivery. Preferably, women should also never have been pregnant.
What is Hymenoplasty?
The remnants of hymen are identified, and under general anaesthetic, and are repaired. If enough remnants are not available, small flaps of vaginal lining are used to reconstruct the hymen. This procedure is called hymenoplasty. Hymenoplasty Surgery is one of the most complex and meticulous cosmetic surgeries performed today.
It requires extensive experience, precision, and accuracy to create the optimal results. Once it is fully healed, the opening becomes small and repeat sexual intercourse will re-rupture the hymen and bleed.
