The hymen is a membrane that covers part of the opening of the vagina (but does not cover the vagina completely). Many scientists believe the hymen has no anatomical function, and is simply a remnant from the development of the foetus into a girl in the womb.

The hymen can be easily broken in early youth through sporting activities or tampon use, and on the first experience of intercourse. The breaking of the hymen is a sensitive issue in some cultures, and the belief of virginal status prior to marriage through the possession of an intact hymen is still widespread in many parts of the world.

A hymenoplasty is a procedure to repair the hymen if it has broken or torn.

If you are considering having a hymenoplasty, in the first instance you will attend a consultation with one of our Consultant Gynaecologists. Upon examination, if you are considered to be a suitable candidate for this procedure, we will be able to offer you an appointment within a maximum of 2 weeks.

Many women are embarrassed to raise these issues with a medical professional – however, our team at Oakdin are completely professional, discreet, caring and understanding.

If you’d like to discuss hymenoplasty, please contact us.
