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

What-Dr. Amrita Singh-Say-About-Hymenoplasty-Treatment

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."

What are some reasons women prefer hymenoplasty?

Hymenoplasty or hymen repair surgery is a cosmetic surgical procedure to repair a torn hymen. The reasons for getting a hymenoplasty done could vary from emotional, physical to psychological. Here are some of the common reasons why women get hymenoplasty done.

Bury her past – Many teenagers indulge in sexual activities out of curiosity and peer pressure. Most teenage relationships do not materialize as the individuals grow up and they feel regretful of indulging in sexual intimacies in the past. To bury the evidence of the past, most women resort to revirginization as a new beginning in life.

Psychological comfort – Many women, unfortunately, lose their virginity due to sexual assaults which leave behind a traumatic psychological impact in their minds. They often feel being robbed of the virginal gist which they preserve to experience with their partners. Getting a hymen repair not only offers them the restoration of what they have lost but also marks a way of psychological comfort and healing.

Cultural and social beliefs – In India, sex is taboo, and there’s no denying that. Women who lose virginity to any men other than their husbands are most often considered impure and a disgrace to the family. An intact hymen is an important aspect of marriage in Indian society. Hence, many women turn up to gynecologists to get a repaired hymen so that they can provide what is considered as ‘proof of purity’ to their husbands.

A gift – Many women consider their virginity as an intimate wedding gift for their partners. Many sexually active women come to gynecology experts because they wish to gift a virginal experience to their partner on the wedding night. Here is where hymenoplasty comes to the rescue.

Get the most advanced Hymenoplasty in Mumbai at Pristyn Care

The hymen is a ring-shaped membrane in the vagina which is often considered to be a mark of virginity and purity. However, this is not entirely logical. The hymen is a physical element, whereas virginity is a state of a person who has never indulged in sexual intercourse. Virginity is more of a social concept. So, associating a woman’s dignity and honor with virginity is illogical.

Apart from sexual intercourse, the hymen can rupture due to a variety of reasons like strenuous exercise, yoga stretching, horse riding, gymnastics, etc. It is also possible that the hymen may just stretch and not rupture even during sexual penetration. In such cases, bleeding does not occur and conservative people can start raising questions and doubts. It is emotionally very difficult and stressful for any woman to entertain such doubts. Therefore, in order to avoid these questions, some women prefer to undergo hymen reconstruction through hymenoplasty.

Women in Mumbai who want to restore their virginity can now contact Pristyn Care and consult with our experienced gynecologists. Pristyn Care promises complete privacy and assures that the information regarding the patient, surgery and other details will remain confidential. At our clinics and hospitals in Mumbai, our gynecologists will not only provide you with surgical treatment but also provide compassionate care throughout your treatment journey.

  • Carry age-proof: As an eligibility criteria, you are required to be at least 18+ years of age before undergoing hymenoplasty. This is why we suggest you carry your age proof along.
  • Know your rights: You do not need approval from your partner/ parent in case of hymenoplasty or any cosmetic surgeries. Your own written consent is enough. (Provided, you are above 18 years of age. )

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.
