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.

The doctors at Pristyn Care are highly dedicated and experienced to provide the best treatment and assistance to all the patients. The procedure of hymenoplasty aims at restoring the elasticity of the hymen and lasts for about 40-minutes.

Treatment

Diagnosis

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.

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

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."

Frequently Asked Questions

Does the patient need bed rest after the surgery?

Bed rest is not required after the surgery. Although, the gynecologist recommends the patients to avoid exertion around the vagina. The stitches dissolve in about 21-24 days. The patient should avoid any extra strain around the vaginal area or the inner thighs, until the stitches completely heal and dissolve. The doctors at Pristyn Care provide a special set of instructions to follow post the surgery.

How to become a virgin again?

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

How can I become a virgin again at home?

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.

What are virginity capsules? Are they effective?

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.

Is hymenoplasty legal in India?

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.

Is revirginization surgery performed in the clinic or hospital?

Hymenoplasty (also commonly known as revirginization surgery) can be performed at both- gyne clinics and hospitals.

Which doctor performs hymenoplasty- a gynecologist or a plastic surgeon?

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.

What are the qualifications of a hymenoplasty doctor?

The certifications of a hymenoplasty surgeon must include one/ more of the following qualifications:

  • MBBS
  • DGO
  • DNB/MS- General Surgery
  • MS-Gynecology
  • MS- Obstetrics
  • MS-Plastic Surgery
  • Masters Course in Cosmetic Gynecology (MCCG)
  • Diploma course in Cosmetic Gynecology (DCCG)
  • Fellowship in Cosmetic Gynecology (FCG)
I am getting married after eight months. What is the best time to get the hymenoplasty?

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.

How long does a hymenoplasty surgery take?

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

Is a hospital stay mandatory after hymenoplasty?

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.

Will hymen repair surgery make me bleed on my first night?

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.

Does hymenoplasty also make the vagina tighter?

No. Hymenoplasty is a surgery focussed 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.

Can hymen repair surgery affect future pregnancy?

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.

How confidential is hymenoplasty surgery in thiruvananthapuram?

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.

When can I resume work after hymenoplasty?

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.

How long will I have to wait before sexual intercourse after hymenoplasty?

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.

Will my partner know if I have had a 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.

I had a hymenoplasty before. Is it safe to get the surgery again?

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.

How to prepare for hymenoplasty?

  • 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.

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.

  • Ask for a friend/ or your primary health care provider’s referral.
  • Look for your doctor’s specific qualifications, accreditations, and specialized experience in hymenoplasty surgery.
  • Read through the net and different patient reviews thoroughly. You could also confirm through third-party sites.
