Female virginity is directly related to the unbroken hymen and is valued for religious, social, cultural and even economic reasons.
Although almost every person knows that apart from intercourse there can be so many reasons like strenuous physical activity, tampon use, horse riding or bike riding etc. for torn hymen but still Indian society does not accept these facts. Some marriages are even annulled if the hymen is torn.Hymen repair, Hymen Reconstruction, Hymen Surgery, Hymenoplasty or Revirgination is a solution for all these worries. It refers to the cosmetic surgery that restores female hymen. It is safe and fairly simple procedure that is opted by many women to restore the shape of their hymen.
The procedure involves realigning and restoration of tissue of hymen so that it appears and feels like an unbroken hymen. It can be done in following ways:
- A flap of vaginal lining along with its blood supply is used to create new hymen. This procedure forms the new hymen.
- In case of sexual assault, the hymen tear can be sutured to facilitate healing and reconstruction of hymen.
