Hymenoplasty surgery is a procedure that restores the hymen. The hymen is the membrane that partially covers the vagina. Although an intact hymen is thought in many cultures to be a sign of virginity, it can be torn due to many other factors besides having sex.

During a hymenoplasty, we restore the hymenal ring by taking a thin layer of tissue from the vaginal wall and placing it in the location of the torn hymen. It is a surgical procedure performed under either local anesthesia with sedation or general anesthesia.

The hymen can tear for multiple reasons, not just penetrative sex. Common causes of a torn hymen include:

  • Exercise

  • Riding a bike or a horse

  • Tampon insertion

If you have given birth, you will not be a candidate for hymenoplasty.

A hymenoplasty can repair a torn hymen for women who want to restore it due to cultural, religious, or psychological reasons. It will tighten the vaginal opening and cause bleeding upon penetration. If your religion requires virginity before marriage and this is tested through an intact hymen, a hymenoplasty will help.

Hymenoplastya recovery typically takes around 6 to 8 weeks. We’ll give you prescription medication to help with any pain or discomfort, and we’ll also give you detailed post-operative instructions to follow in order to ensure the smoothest possible recovery.

During your recovery, you should refrain from strenuous exercise and any vaginal penetration, including sex and tampon insertion.
