ABOUT HYMEN RECONSTRUCTION
The hymen is a thick membranous layer of tissue that encircles the vaginal orifice from the urethral orifice backward and allows the escape of menstrual blood.
While some hymens are so elastic that they do not tear even during intercourse, for most women the hymen is usually torn at 5, 6, or 7 o’clock during first intercourse or after tampon insertion. Natural deficiencies may be present at 3 or 9 o’clock in 40-50% of women.
Even so, in many cultures, the hymen is considered a token of virginity and for cultural and religious reasons can be an important factor in a new marriage.
Now that hymen repair is available and relatively safe, many women and families are opting for this solution.
