Hymenoplasty

Hymenoplasty is a complete reconstruction of the hymen to remove any damages or signs of trauma. 

 

What is a hymen?

The hymen is a thin membrane which covers the opening of the vagina. 

 

How does the hymen break?

The hyphen is usually broken or torn during sexual intercourse. It can also be torn by the insertion of a tampons or sex toy.

 

How long will hymenoplasty last?
If nothing is inserted inside the vagina then it will last indefinitely. 

 

Do you always bleed after the hymen is broken?

Not every woman will bleed after the hymen is torn. That’s why bleeding after intercourse is not an indication of virginity. 

 

How long is the procedure?

The hymenoplasty is a relatively short procedure which will take about an hour in the office. It is a painless procedure done in our office under local anesthesia. 

 

How long does a hymenoplasty take to heal?

The recovery time is 6 to 8 weeks.
