Suitable candidates for hymen repair

At the Wellness Kliniek, we guide our patients who request a reconstruction, with a focus on guaranteeing their right to autonomy and respect for non-western cultures.

It must be clear what the condition of virginity means for the individual, her partner, her family, and his family. It is important to take into account the principle of equality of both sexes and to prevent physical and psychological damage. On an individual level, information can be provided about the hymen.

An operation to reconstruct the hymen is only performed if after counseling it appears that there is no other solution.

Hymen repair procedure

The hymen is a thin layer of tissue that encloses the vaginal area. The hymen can easily break in many situations outside of intercourse, including vigorous activities such as horseback riding or gymnastics, the insertion of tampons, or even during regular pap smears. Many women may not even be aware that their hymen has torn, as there may be little to no blood loss and no pain.

Hymen repair surgery, also known as hymenoplasty, is a simple procedure that will repair a torn hymen or build a hymen that is not present. It is important to understand that the surgery will not restore virginity, but it will allow for women to tear and bleed the first time they engage in intercourse after surgery.

What to expect?

The sutures will dissolve and come out on their own, this will take up to 6 weeks. You should refrain from any vaginal insertion until the wedding night, including tampons. This will allow the incisions to heal completely and prevent the new hymen from breaking. You should also avoid heavy lifting and any strenuous activities as this may negatively affect your healing. 

You should be able to return to work the day after undergoing hymen repair. You should be able to resume a light exercise routine one week after surgery. Avoid heavy lifting or a strenuous exercise routine for 4-6 weeks.
