Hymen is the membrane, which encloses the vaginal area. It is actually outside. It is a part of the vulva, or the external genital organs. It is in the exterior area, slightly blocking the entrance to the vagina. It is a thin set of tissues just around the opening.
The goal of this surgery is the reconstruction of the hymen.
Hymen could be broken after:
• extreme exercise
• accident of falling down
• sports injury
• Physically just after the first intercourse
Hymenoplasty can be performed under local anesthesia or spinal/general anaesthesia. It takes around 15-45 minutes. Once healed, the act of sexual intercourse can result in bleeding when the hymen is torn or stretched.
Sexual activity could restart in 3 weeks after the surgery.
Hymenoplasty can be done for more than one time and at any time and age.
