Bleeding after hymenoplasty

You will not "break" a properly performed hymenoplasty with a bowel movement. However, during surgery some blood becomes "trapped" in the upper vagina and can "whoosh out" with a B.M.  I see no reason for you to go through the potential trauma of an exam by your surgeon at this time, but visit him or her 3-4 weeks after your procedure to see if all is intact. In the meantime, be very limited in your activities, as recommended by your surgeon.

You can't break your hymenoplasty with a bowel movement

Doesn't happen. Bleeding after this procedure is usually the release of trapped blood that accumulated in the vagina during or after surgery.
