    What Is a Hymen?

    The hymen is a tissue found in the vagina which covers the vaginal opening. Its formation begins when the female baby is in the womb, generally when the carrier is in the fourth month of her pregnancy. A hymen may tear or break apart. But the damage caused might not be permane* There are certain ways to treat the damage.


    What is Hymenoplasty?

    Simply explained, Hymenoplasty (also known as Hymenorrhaphy, hymen repair, hymen rejuvenation, hymen restoration, revirginization, etc), is the cosmetic repair, restoration, or construction of a woman’s hymen. Restoration of the hymen is also referred to as revirginization.
    Hymen is a thin layer of tissue that partially encloses the vaginal opening. Until puberty hymen acts as barrier to vagina against infections.

    Who Needs Hymenoplasty?

    Since hymen repair has no medical benefit, it is not required for anyone. However, various societal norms dictate that women should be virgin (that is, their hymen should remain intact) till marriage and that an intact hymen and bleeding during first intercourse is proof that a woman is virgin and never had any premarital intercourse with anyone.
    However scientific studies show that for most women the hymen gets ruptured during their teenage years due to reasons other than sexual intercourse.
    Considering the above, Hymenoplasty is recommended for:
    • Women who are under severe stress to prove their chastity after marriage.
    • Women for whom religious and societal norms dictate that they have an unruptured hymen till marriage.
    • Women who have suffered sape or sexual abuse, and want to have their hymen restored for psychological healing
    • Women who, while beginning a new sexual relationship, may want to please their partner through revirginization


    Various procedures of hymenoplasty

    Depending upon the requirement and the condition of the hymen, there are several options for hymenoplasty:

    1. Basic techniques: The local anesthesiologist administers general anesthesia to numb the hymen before the surgery. It is an outpatient surgery and takes around 30 – 40 minutes.
    2. Hymen reconstruction: This surgical procedure includes the reconstruction of the hymen with the help of tissues removed from the lip of the vagina. After this procedure, you must abstain from sex for a minimum of three months.
    3. All plant technique: This surgical procedure includes the insertion of a biomaterial into the vagina. This biomaterial is a tear-through material acting as the hymen. This surgery is performed when it is not possible to stitch the hymen back together.

    Timing of Hymenoplasty

    Since Hymen repair surgery is done solely for the purpose of appearing like a virgin (including bleeding during first Intercourse) on the wedding night, the timing of the surgery is very important and is decided based on the day of marriage or when the future planned coitus is supposed to take place. For patients who need the hymen to be intact on visual inspection, the surgery should be performed 3 months before the day of coitus. For patients who only want bleeding and visual inspection is not necessary, the surgery can be done as late as 3 weeks from the day of intercourse.
