About Hymenoplasty

Hymenoplasty or hymen reconstruction is the surgical procedure of restorating the hymen, a thin, pinkish colored membrane which partially covers the vaginal entrance. Hymen is is a part of the vulva and is located approximately half an inch inside the vagina. The function of the hymen is exactly unknown. But, the hymen is considered to act as a barrier which prevents the external sources of infection from entering the vagina until puberty. The hymen generally ruptures during the first sexual intercourse. However, the hymen can also get torn at any age due to strenuous activities like bicycling, horseback riding and gymnastics. Using tampons can also, sometimes, break the hymen. Some females are even born without an intact hymen

Treatment

Diagnosis

The gynecologist physically examines the patient to make sure she is fit for the surgery.

Surgery

Hymenoplasty is a clinic-based procedure performed under general or local anesthesia, as recommended by the gynecologist. The doctor will then make a transverse incision in the vestibular mucosa posterior to the vaginal wall. The surgery is performed by uniting the remaining torn tags of the hymen. The broken tags of the hymen are joined with self-dissolvable sutures, which dissolve in 15-21 days. After the operation, patients are advised to always keep the area clean and apply the ointment regularly.

The female has to maintain proper hygiene and wear loose-fitting clothes after the surgery. Avoid using irritants or scented sprays or washes around the vaginal area.

In Our Doctor's Word

Dr. Amrita Singh

MBBS

15 Years Experience

"An unbroken hymen is still a measure of virginity in India. While it has no medical basis, a lot of women opt for dubious medicines and blood capsules because of the family pressure. But these are highly unsafe. Who knows what is inside them? They can severely disturb your Ph balance and cause dryness and itching. Also, these are false promises. A hymen can never be repaired without a surgery. At times, these capsules don't even break and cause severe infections. So if you must, hymenoplasty is your safest choice. The procedure is quick, safe and medically verified and chances of complications- extremely rare."

The hymen is an elastic membrane, and at times, it may just stretch and not break in the first intercourse. In others, it may break after some time, while in yet others- not break at all. However, what it can promise is- 100% guarantee of its complete construction and a tight flap life effect on intercourse- which is precisely what you or your partner might be looking for.

However, we encourage you to discuss your needs, and expectations thoroughly. This would help you make a better and informed decision.

  • Discuss your current health and medications: We suggest you thoroughly discuss your health, current medications and supplements (if any) with your doctor. You might be required to stop taking some medications before the procedure, else they risk interfering with the healing.
  • Keep a track: Keep a detailed track of your period cycle and go prepared on your last 3-4 menstrual dates and days of periods. This would help you plan the right time for the treatment. The best time to plan hymenoplasty is 2 days after your last period cycle.

What are the risks of hymenoplasty procedure?

When performed under safe medical conditions and by trained gynecologists, hymenoplasty is a typically safe and minimum risk surgery. However, as with any surgery, hymenoplasty too comes with a few risks of complications. These include-

  • Prolonged bleeding
  • Pelvic/ vaginal infection
  • Anaesthetic complications
  • Overcorrection

Please note that these complications are extremely rare and commonly treatable with minimally invasive surgery.

What are the different types of hymen?

Hymens come in a variety of shapes and sizes. There is no such thing as a one-size-fits-all hymen. There are five different types of hymen, according to medical classification:

  • Normal – Commonly hymens have a crescent-shaped entrance
  • Cribriform hymen – Hymen with numerous small apertures for menstrual blood to flow through.
  • Imperforate hymen – Hymen with no opening.
  • Micro perforated hymen – Hymen with a tiny aperture
  • Septate hymens have a thin tissue band running through the middle.

Can virginity pills or hymen repair kits give a virginity effect?

No. In fact, you must refrain from such over-the-counter products as they may do more harm than good. Vagina, as you know, is a very delicate and sensitive organ. Inserting anything while the ingredients are not researched, may disturb its Ph balance and cause dryness. This would then risk tear or rupture during intercourse and itchiness and bacterial infection afterward.

If you seek a reconstructed hymen, hymen repair is the best, most common, and medically verified method. It is:

  • Less than the 30-minute procedure
  • Has no major risks/ complications
  • Is undetectable after 1-2 months.

What kind of aftercare is required following a hymenoplasty procedure?

After your procedure, your doctor may recommend a few hours of monitoring. If there are no issues, you will be discharged within 2-3 hours and you will be able to return to work within 2-4 days.

Some post-care tips that may help you are:

  • As you clean your vaginal area, do not wipe. Only gently pat dry.
  • Keep the area clean and free of moisture.
  • If you experience any itching or swelling as you heal, we suggest you use warm compresses and ice packs to relieve the discomfort.
  • Avoid head shower or extended baths for atleast 2–3 days after.
  • You must not have sex for at least 8 weeks after the procedure.
  • As you bleed/ menstruate, use only soft sanitary pads. Do not use tampons/ anything penetrative in nature.
  • Do not eat anything too spicy. It could trigger irritation and inflammation in your gastrointestinal pipe.
  • Drink a lot of water. Keep yourself hydrated. It would help you heal.
  • Eat meals with high fiber content. It will help make your bowel movements easier.
