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

The patient will have to consult the gynecologist once before the surgery. The gynecologist needs to physically examine the patient to ensure she is fit to undergo the surgery.
The surgery is performed under local or general anesthesia, as per the choice of patients. The female is then settled in the lithotomy position for the surgery. The surgery is performed by firstly joining the torn remnants of the hymen. The doctor will then make a transverse incision in the vestibular mucosa, posterior to the vaginal wall. The broken tags of hymen are united using self-dissolvable sutures. The sutures generally take 15-21 days to dissolve completely. After the surgery, the patient is advised to keep her intimate areas clean and apply the ointment prescribed by the gynecologist regularly. The patient should make sure to maintain proper hygiene, wear loose fitting clothes and avoid using irritants or scented sprays or washes around the vaginal area after the surgery.
In Our Doctor's Word
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."

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.

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.
Typically, a hymenoplasty surgery should not take more than 30 minutes to complete.
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, 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.
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.

Choose the right doctor: While hymenoplasty can be done by both- gynecologists and plastic surgeons, an OB-GYN with experience in cosmetic gyne surgeries is the safest choice. 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.
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.

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.
