When a girl or a woman’s hymen has been interrupted, there is slight bleeding because the membrane that covers the hymen has been broken. As you may or may not be aware, a woman’s hymen has been the focus of many cultural myths and traditions. Hymen surgery, or hymenoplasty, can be performed for various reasons, like repairing a damaged hymen or removing extra tissue that blocks the vaginal opening.
Hymen damage can result from an injury where a sharp object was thrust into the vaginal cavity, an accident, a sports injury, a birth defect, or a forceful sexual act. Hymenoplasty is a cosmetic surgical procedure that can repair a stretched hymen problem. To answer the question as to whether or not a hymenoplasty procedure is “worth” it, it’s important to ask a girl or a woman her reasons for considering the procedure, as well as take some other factors into consideration.
The basic principle of a hymenoplasty procedure is to restore the hymen using specialized techniques. Yes, a woman can have sexual intercourse later on and yes, she will again go through tearing after a successful hymenoplasty. Some women experience a partial covering of the vaginal opening or the hymen is deformed in some way.
The hymen does not tear or break unless there is a great force exhibited against it. Other than an injury or an accident, the thin membrane is only stretched due to certain activities like thrusting tampons against the membrane, intercourse, or long-distance walking. Other women would like to have hymenoplasty performed to simply tighten their genitalia area. It all depends on the unique situation.
For whatever reason a woman seeks out hymen surgery, the procedure is generally considered to be safe. We will first have a consultation to discuss the options and the surgical procedure. From there, we can help you determine if this procedure is right for you. Using that information, you can measure for yourself whether or not hymenoplasty will be worth considering and undergoing.
