90% of the females looking for hymenoplasty are not able to take action due to confusion and fears.

Despite entering the 21st century, many women are still fighting for human rights. While the regressive society leaves no stone unturned to judge a woman on various factors like the presence of an intact hymen to testify the chastity of a woman, the evolution of medical science has enabled women to fix their torn hymen with utmost precision. However, there are prevailing incorrect perceptions that confuse the women to live their life freely.

Do not let your broken hymen jeopardize your future with hymenoplasty surgery. Reclaim your virginity with revirgination surgery while ensuring the confidentiality of the procedure.

Hymen repair surgery

Hymenoplasty or hymen repair surgery has helped several women achieve an intact hymen that had broken earlier due to several reasons. Recently this procedure has become popular among married women who want to surprise their husbands by reclaiming intact hymen. 

Hymenoplasty has also helped several women heal psychologically after a sexual assault. While this procedure has become popular among women there are several myths associated with it.

Let us bust the common myth associated with hymenoplasty,

myths and facts about hymenoplasty

Myth 1: Hymenoplasty ensures virginity.


Hymenoplasty helps you achieve an intact hymen which can give your partner a virgin partner experience. However, hymenoplasty is not a free pass to virginity. Hymen can get torn due to several factors even for girls who never had a sexual encounter. 

Before undergoing hymenoplasty girls must understand that having an intact hymen does not guarantee virginity. Virgin women are the ones who have never experienced penetrative sexual activity irrespective of their hymen. 

The hymen is a skinny mucosal tissue piece that partly surrounds the outer opening of the vagina. Commonly, it is believed that a woman can restore her virginity by repairing the torn hymen, especially among women belonging to conservative societies.

But before connecting virginity with an intact hymen, you must know that several girls have had no hymen since birth despite being a virgin. 

Therefore you must never associate an intact hymen with virginity.

Myth 2: Hymenoplasty costs a lot.


Unlike popular conception, hymenoplasty surgery is affordable and it hardly takes a few days to resume your regular life after the procedure. However, you must choose a doctor who is experienced and has successfully performed this procedure before undergoing revirgination surgery. 

Generally, the procedure cost around 600-1000 USD in India.

Myth 3: Most people believe that hymenoplasty surgery is painful and associated with threats.


The hymenoplasty procedure is not painful, unlike popular belief. Before the procedure, your doctor will administer anesthesia to ensure that you do not feel any discomfort during the procedure.

Also if you are not comfortable getting administered anesthesia you can opt for hymen repair by laser, which is painless. 

The procedure is a safe procedure with minimal risk of developing any side effects.

Myth 4: Hymenoplasty may affect vaginal function during the menstrual cycle as hymen covers the entire vagina. 


Generally, people do have this misunderstanding. But, the hymen doesn’t cover the whole vagina. It is instead a thin tissue that surrounds but doesn’t completely cover the vagina. It is common sense that if something covers the vagina, then the menstrual blood would never come out of it.

Myth 5: Hymenoplasty leads to an untimely menstrual cycle.  


There is no relation between Hymenoplasty surgery and the menstrual cycle. Hymenoplasty is done at a very surface level, where even the entire vagina is not associated. Discontinuation of the menstrual cycle depends on various other aspects, which hardly have anything to do with a hymen or even vagina.

Myth 6: Post hymenoplasty, your sensation reduces


Any kind of human sensation is related to the nervous system. It is not just about sex-related organs. A person won’t experience sensation in any part of the body if the nervous system doesn’t function.

Hence, Hymenoplasty has nothing to do with sexual sensations. Moreover, with 20-30 percent of cases of Hymenoplasty being done every year, such claims can be proved untrue absolutely.

Myth 7: The hymen may not protect the vagina like before post Hymenoplasty. 


People should not have this misconception at all. In fact, there is no proof of the theory that hymen is responsible for protecting the vagina. It used to be believed that the hymen adds a security layer to the vagina, which has been falsified. Some also claim that hymen protect the vagina from bacterial attacks without substantial evidence behind it.

There is no proof of the hymen’s role. In short, there is no relation between hymen and vaginal protection, and hence there is no connection between Hymenoplasty and vaginal safety.

Myth 8: You can’t insert a tampon or masturbate once you do Hymenoplasty.


Hymenoplasty is simply like bringing back your original hymen. If you were masturbating before Hymenoplasty, you could do the same after that as well. Hence, such claims are false claims.

Yes, one should not masturbate during recovery periods. Moreover, a person should also not insert anything or any tampons, specifically during the recovery periods. But, it is untrue that these things can’t be practiced entirely.  

Myth 9: A Gynaecologist can know about virginity even after Hymenoplasty.


No matter how experienced the gynecologist is, no one on this earth can tell about virginity by merely taking a look at the hymen.

No Gynaecologist can do so. If it would have been true, then what about those women who have no hymen at all? Else, a doctor could have told simply by looking at it?

Myth 10: Hymenoplasty may make you more prone to urinal infections.


This is not true. Urination and hymen have no relation. Urinal infection holds various reasons, but there is no link between hymen and the disorders. Hymenoplasty is safe and involves no side-effect at all.

Yes, one may suffer from urinal infection post hymenoplasty, but certainly, it has nothing to do with the operation. Rather than making mere speculations, it would be a good idea to consult with physicians for better treatment.   

Myth 11: It takes extremely long to recover post-Hymenoplasty.


These kinds of claims are merely misconceptions. It takes some time for recovery post-surgery; there is nothing new about it. The same is the case with Hymenoplasty as well. The stitches get dissolved within 15-20 days post-surgery.

High-end sutures are used in modern times that are entirely dissolvable. However, complete hymen repair surgery recovery time or getting back to the absolute original state requires 3-4 weeks maximum.

Myth 12: Hymenoplasty may restrict someone to wear tight clothes; specifically jeans:


This is also basically a myth. Instead, it can be claimed as moreover a misconception. It takes around three to four weeks for recovery after Hymenoplasty is done.

One should refrain from wearing any kind of tight wearable during this period. Any lower body operation can lead to a similar state. Hence, it is wrong to relate something with Hymenoplasty.   


Now that your doubts about hymenoplasty have been cleared you can confidently undergo this procedure without any doubts. 

But before undergoing hymenoplasty you must ensure that the doctor you have chosen is well experienced to perform the procedure with dexterity.
