Hymenoplasty Stitches

Thank you for your question.  Hymenoplasty is typically performed with dissolvable stitches which will come out over time.  I would recommend contacting your surgeon with any concerns so that you can be evaluated.   Best of luck.

If the stitches you spat out came out of your vagina and nowhere else you have no issues

Hymenoplasty is performed with dissolving sutures. As they dissolve the remnants will fall out. That's what they're supposed to do. Not a problem.
