Hymenoplasty (Virginity Creation)
|Hymenoplasty (Virginity Creation)
A hymen can be broken or torn at different times during a woman’s life, whether caused by tampon insertion, exercise, or sexual intercourse. Minor bleeding is commonly associated with the breaking of the hymen. A hymenoplasty is a surgical procedure that restores the hymen, a membrane that partially covers the opening of the vagina. A hymenoplasty procedure is typically done for religious or cultural purposes as an intact hymen is considered a sign of virginity for some.
