Hymenoplasty is the surgical reconstruction of the hymen. The hymen is the thin mucous membrane inside the female’s vagina, which acts as a barrier and prevents any foreign particles or infection from entering the female’s vagina until her puberty. Almost all females are born with a hymen. But some females can be born without an intact hymen. There is no significant risk or harm in case of the absence of the hymen.
The hymen breaks or tears at the time of the female’s first sexual intercourse. She may bleed a little due to the breaking of this tender muscle. The hymen can also break or tear due to vigorous physical activities or workouts like gymnastics, horse-riding, swimming, etc. The hymen may also break in accidental cases, where the female may need immediate medical assistance or surgery. With hymenoplasty surgery, a woman can get a hymen that looks and functions like that of a virgin.

The gynecologist physically examines the patient to make sure she is fit for the 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
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 hymenoplasty surgery is performed under anesthesia which means the female would be sedated and she won’t feel any pain during the surgery. There might be a little discomforting sensation after the anesthesia wears off. The doctors are likely to prescribe medications and painkillers for that.
No, the reconstructed hymen that you will get from hymenoplasty surgery will remain intact only till you have any sexual intercourse. Once you indulge in sexual intercourse, the reconstructed hymen will be torn just like it happens under normal consequences.
If you’re curious to see if you have a hymen or not or what does your hymen looks like, you can check yourself at home with a hand mirror and a flashlight. The hymen may be visible if you part the labia on your vulva and look inside the vaginal passage. The hymen would look like a thin pinkish disc located at the opening of the vagina.
The purpose of hymenoplasty is to reconstruct or repair a torn hymen to make it look like an intact hymen.
Virginity is nothing but a social concept usually understood as the breaking of the hymen. If you want to reconstruct a broken hymen, you can undergo a hymenoplasty procedure. It is an effective and clinically proven way to stitch together all the loosened ends of the broken hymen and reconstruct it as it was before
Revirginisation is usually understood as the artificial reconstruction of hymen. And unfortunately, no home remedies, fruits, or herbs can regrow the hymen without surgery. The only effective and clinically proven method to reconstruct a hymen is- hymenoplasty.
Virginity capsules (also known as blood capsules) are penetrative capsules sold with artificial colour. They are usually sold as a way to fake hymen tear and bleeding after sexual intercourse. And no, they are not effective. In fact, they are heavily unpopular for disturbing the natural Ph balance of the vaginal area and cause incessant vaginal itching, dryness, foul smell, and bacterial infections.
The only clinically verified way to rebuild a hymen is hymenoplasty.
Yes. Hymenoplasty is legal in India. If you are thinking of a hymen repair surgery, and are looking for a confidential procedure, we suggest you call us directly and our experts will guide you through the entire process.
Hymenoplasty (also commonly known as revirginization surgery) can be performed at both- gyne clinics and hospitals.
Both gynecologists and plastic surgeons can perform a hymenoplasty. However, a gynecologist with core experience in cosmetic-gynecology or obstetrics-gynecology is the most ideal choice.
The certifications of a hymenoplasty surgeon must include one/ more of the following qualifications:
The sooner, the better! Hymenoplasty takes around 1- 1.5 months to heal completely and prepare for penetration. Therefore, it is a good decision to get it done at least 2 months before your planned event. However, since hymen does not automatically break unless penetrated through a vaginal activity or undergoing strenuous physical exercises, getting it done early would free you of stress and unwanted anxiety.
Typically, a hymenoplasty surgery should not take more than 30 minutes to complete.
No. Hymenoplasty is typically performed on an outpatient basis. That is, you can leave the same day after a little rest. Hospital stay is not mandatory.
No, nobody can promise you definite bleeding through your reconstructed hymen on your first night. 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.
No. Hymenoplasty is a surgery focused only on the reconstruction of the hymen. If you feel you have a loosened vagina, we suggest you go for laser vaginal tightening. It is a safe and painless procedure that can be completed in 2-3 sessions (depending on your laxity). It is completely scarless and takes only 10-15 minutes per session.
No, hymen repair surgery is performed on the external vaginal area while all the reproductive organs like the uterus, ovaries and fallopian tubes lie much above it, after the cervix. Since no reproductive organ/ tissue is disturbed through the hymen repair process, it has no negative or positive side effect on a woman’s fertility.
Hymenoplasty as a process can be very critical and personal in nature. It generally triggers a lot of discomfort and anxiety. We understand. This is why Pristyn Care ensures a hundred percent privacy and confidentiality throughout the process and after.
Hymenoplasty is a minimally invasive surgery and many women resume work the very next day. However, medically, it is common for women to experience vaginal discharge, spotting, and a little discomfort in the first 24-48 hours. This is why, if possible, we suggest you take a little break and rest for at least a day or two.
Complete recovery after hymenoplasty takes around 5-6 weeks. Therefore, doctors suggest you wait until 1.5-2 months before your first sexual intercourse after hymenoplasty.
No, medically or otherwise, there is no possible way to distinguish between a natural or surgically recreated hymen. Therefore, it is impossible for your partner to know the same unless informed so.
Yes, a repeated hymenoplasty is both possible and safe. However multiple repetitions of hymenoplasty (more than twice) are not recommended under medical sciences as it could result in various infections and gynecological complications.
In the Indian social structure, virginity is deeply interlinked with the purity and honor of a woman. Indian society’s obsession with virginity is not something new. No matter to what extent we raise our voices for women’s empowerment, having sex before marriage is still considered unacceptable.
When it comes to marriage, virginity is a desired factor. In case a woman loses her virginity to another man than her husband, the emotional, physical, and psychological consequences that follow, are often very ugly. Having sex with any man before marriage is strongly labeled as immoral in our culture. Which is the main reason why women in India, even those who come from elite family backgrounds resort to surgical repair of her hymen to present herself as a virgin.
Most women lose their virginity due to unfortunate incidences of sexual assault. These women look forward to repairing their torn hymen not just to make a new beginning but also to bury the traumatic past of her life. Hymenoplasty has been a boon for so many women for their own personal reasons.

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:
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.
