Hymenoplasty is a relatively safe procedure that tends to carry few risks and side effects. However any operation carries a small risk of infection and prolonged bleeding, as well as those associated with anaesthetic.
Any complication from the hymen repair surgery itself is very rare. Occasionally there is a resulting problem of hymen tightness or hymen over-correction. This is where the opening becomes narrowed, meaning that the next act of intercourse will be difficult. However this rarely causes problems in the long-term
The hymen is a thick membranous layer of tissue which encircles the inside of the vaginal entrance and allows the escape of menstrual blood. While some hymens are so elastic that they do not tear even during intercourse, we know that for most women the hymen is usually torn at the lower part during first intercourse, after tampon insertion, or through some exercises.Go to Treatment
