Can any doctor detect hymenoplasty surgery? I had hymenoplasty year ago. Can a doctor detect this?

Doctor Answers 2


it really depends on your individual anatomy and what technique was used. Generally speaking - it can be detected or suspected on exam. Hope this helps

Can a Gyn tell if I've had a hymenoplasty??

Depends entirely on what procedure was done. Some hymenoplasty procedures bury the incision line within the vagina and are difficult to see, while others create false anatomy specifically designed to tear & produce bleeding, and these can be detected by a savvy gynecologist
