Hymenoplasty involves surgical repair of the hymen by suturing together the torn ends. The hymen is a thick layer of tissue which covers the opening to the vaginal passage. The hymen may tear due to tampon insertion, sexual intercourse or vigorous exercise. 40- 50 percent of the women may have a defect by birth or early childhood. In spite of this, the hymen is taken to be a token of virginity in many cultures and can become an issue at the time of marriage. Hymenoplasty is a relatively safe procedure. Administration of general anesthesia during the procedure makes it painless and relatively comfortable. The hymen has a secondary layer that can be stitched to cover the broken skin. A new hymen may also be created from the lip of your vagina. In some cases, where there is not enough remaining tissue, it is possible to create a membrane from an artificial gelatin like substance. But this may not be long lasting. The procedure takes between about ½ hour and 1 ½ hours. The patient is usually discharged within 24 hours.Post-operative care is very important after the surgery. The patient must maintain cleanliness and watch out for signs of infection or abnormal bleeding. Sexual intercourse should be avoided for 6-8 weeks.
