Thank you for your question.  Bleeding may occur after the surgery, but there is no guarantee that bleeding will occur after the first sexual encounter.   I would recommend a consultation with an experienced cosmetic genital surgeon.  Best of luck.

Some spotting is expected

Hi Katty,

Just wanted to clarify if you mean bleeding right after surgery or bleeding after you had sex?
There is to be bleeding for both. Your will have some spotting after the surgery while it is in the healing process and will have bleeding after you have intercourse, when the hymen breaks.

Hope this has helped

Bleeding With Intercourse After Hymenoplasty

Many women do bleed with their initial sexual encounter after hymenoplasty, although it cannot be guaranteed. If it is mandatory that you experience vaginal bleeding on your wedding night, it is best to have a back up plan such as a vaginal capsule (many options are available online). Hymenoplasty surgery is safe if you choose a board cerified, well experienced specialist. Cheers!

Bleeding after hymenoplasty

Bleeding usually occurs after hymenoplasty, but it cannot be guaranteed. Some women have more blood vessels in the hymen than others. Those with very few blood vessels in the area might not bleed after intercourse.
