Hymen Surgery

The hymen is a structure that is formed at the entrance to the vagina and is not necessarily present in every woman before her first sexual encounter with penetration. To say, not all patients are born witha hymen, but the majority are.There exists a multitud of types of hymen described in scientific literature.

In some cultures, the presence of the whole hymen in the first sexual encounter, after getting married, has a very important and momentous value. Also, for these patients, the intimacy, the discretion is fundamental and hugely important to take into account on their first visit.

But, as said, not all women have the presence of a natural hymen and not all women reach married life as virgins. Therefore, there are many women, who because of their culture or whatever personal reason they have, they ask us to reconstruct this, so as to arrive at their matrimony as a virgin.

The surgery for a hymen reconstruction consists in using the remains of the hymen to reconstruct a new one, so that the final result is a complete hymen with a narrower entrance to the vagina. This way, on the day that the matrimony is consumated, it can produce pain, or bleeding when the hymen breaks, during penetration.
