The hymen, or vaginal hymen, is a membrane which is anatomically positioned close to the entry point of the vagina. Girls or young women who have not yet begun their sexual activity have an intact hymen, in most of the cases. However, there are situations which may lead to an accidental hymen breaking, during intense physical activities such as exercise, sports, riding a bicycle, etc. A hymen may also break as a result of a severe fall, an injury or even as a result of masturbation.
Furthermore, in certain cultures or religions, it is expected from a young woman to have her hymen intact, for cultural or religious tradition reasons, and as a result of an accident the broken hymen may cause severe inconvenience to her.
Hymenoplasty procedure is a minor procedure aims to restore the hymenal tissue and bring it intact. The most successful technique is the combined Laser resection and double folded technique. This procedure will restore the hymen for long term and keep it as it is untouched and unbroken as long as no sexual intercourse or any kind of penetration occurred. It is a safe procedure only between the hands of an experience surgeon with knowledge of the anatomy and how to use the cutting-edge technologies.
