Hymen Reconstruction Q&A

What is hymen reconstruction?

Hymen reconstruction, or hymenoplasty, is a surgical treatment to repair a torn hymen. The hymen is a membrane that partially closes the vaginal opening.

In certain religions and cultures, a hymen that’s still intact traditionally indicates virginity. For these reasons, women may want to restore their hymen through a reconstruction procedure.

Hymenoplasty may also be an option for women who suffer an injury that causes the hymen to break before their first sexual experience. The reconstruction surgery may be an ideal way to repair the injury and maintain their virginal status.

What causes the hymen to break?

A ruptured hymen can result in a full opening or several tears in the vaginal opening. You can rupture your hymen through intercourse, strenuous exercise, horseback riding, or by inserting tampons.

What is the goal of hymen reconstruction surgery?

The goal of hymenoplasty is to restore the membrane and partially close the vaginal opening. It’s necessary for a small opening to remain that permits urination and the release of blood during menstruation.

For many women undergoing hymenoplasty, the ultimate goal is to restore the hymen to that of a virgin.

Does hymenoplasty carry any risks?

While hymen reconstruction is a safe and effective procedure, like with any surgery, you have an increased risk for infection and bleeding.

Other risks include side effects like:

  • Vaginal swelling
  • Abnormal vaginal discharge
  • Pain or numbness in the vagina

Dr. Jain may prescribe antibiotics or pain relievers following surgery to keep you comfortable and prevent infections.

What are the benefits of hymen reconstruction?

Dr. Jain may recommend hymen reconstruction surgery if you’re in good overall health and have realistic expectations about the surgical results.

If you have a hymen injury or need to satisfy certain requirements within your religion or culture, Dr. Jain can determine if hymen reconstruction surgery is right for you.
