How do I get my virginity back?
The hymen is the membrane that is broken during first sexual activity and is the biological finding for "loss of virginity." Other things can break the hymen too such as tampons at times or internal masturbation with sex toys etc... A surgery can repair a broken hymen. This is not a difficult procedure. But you may also want a vaginoplasty/perineoplasty - an operation to tighten the vagina. A repaired hymen will not tighten your vagina.
Hymenoplasty, reconstruction of the hymen, is an outpatient surgical procedure. Your total time at our surgical center will be 6o to 90 minutes depending on the anesthesia type. You have a choice of anesthesia from local infiltration, IV sedation with local infiltration, to general anesthesia. The procedure will take less than 20 minutes. You can return home in 24 hours. This procedure will accomplish your goals and result in bleeding when your relationship is consummated. I recommend a consultation in order to receive detailed information as well as a personalized quote.

Thank you for your question. I assume that what you are asking is how do you regain a hymen similar to a virgin. A hymenoplasty can be performed for women who wish to reconstruct the hymen. Some common reasons for the surgery are so that they can bleed on their wedding night and so that their new partner is not aware of their loss of virginity. This procedure is an outpatient procedure. I would recommend a consultation with an experienced cosmetic genital surgeon. Best of luck.
