As many as 30 % of women with an intact #hymen will not #bleed with their first intercourse. This, of course, can create great trauma in many #cultures that insist that a virgin should bleed on her first intimacy with her new husband. Such is also influential with social value in determining a woman’s chasteness and the paternity of her children.
However, it is always possible for a hymen to be torn through a variety of physical activities including horseback riding, dancing, athletics, bicycle riding, gymnastics or while inserting a tampon.
Hymen restoration surgery is intended to repair or reconstruct a woman’s hymen to restore her to her “virginal” anatomy. This simple surgical #procedure has also been termed Virginity Surgery, Restore Virginity Surgery, Virginity Repair, and Hymen repair surgery.
The actual surgery is fairly simple and involves freshening the mucosal edges then sewing the tissues together, usually in two layers while reducing the size of the hymen opening to about 1.0-2.0 cm in diameter. Dissolving sutures are used and the procedure can be done with local #anesthesia in an office surgery room. Oral sedation can be given if the patient desires. If my patient is very anxious then we can discuss using intravenous sedation or even a general #anesthetic.
It is imperative to find a surgeon who is #board certified for your #hymenoplasty and greatly experienced in this procedure.
