Hymenoplasty Surgery in Mumbai

The hymen is located 2-3 centimeters from the vulvar entrance and is a type of mucosal fold with different shapes. Hymenoplasty or Hymen Repair or Hymenorrhaphy is a surgical procedure performed in many females to restore or reconstruct the ruptured hymen, a thin membrane that encloses the vaginal orifice and is sometimes linked to loss of virginity in women.

What causes hymen rupture?

Hymen has elastic properties but some women may have a non-elastic hymen that can easily be torn apart. Usually, the hymen is pulled apart because of:

  • First time during sexual intercourse
  • Strenuous activities like cycling, horse riding, and gymnastics
  • Falls or trauma to the vaginal area
  • Insertion of tampons
  • Medical examinations can lead to its breakage.
