Hymen Planting

Hymen Planting

The hymen provides a healthy protection of the vagina. Thanks to this structure, the development of the vagina is better. It is known that women had an intense decision-making process before Hymenoplasty, which emerged as a result of an intense psychological pressure such as hymen examination and virginity in the society. One of the details to be considered in this process is that the operation should be performed in specialist health centers in completely safe hands. Of course, women have the right to have the last word on their own bodies. However, it is of great importance that this operation is performed by hygienic and experts who will not threaten the health.

What is the Structure of the Hymen?

The hymen is known as Hymen in the medical language. Hymen is generally located at the entrance of the vagina, 1-1.5 cm behind the vagina. Although this structure has been described as the honor of women since primitive societies, it actually ensures that women have a healthy vagina. The structure of hymen tissue differs from woman to woman. Although this tissue is usually a mucosal structure, it is a hole in the middle. Through this hole, menstrual bleeding is thrown out. The structure of the hole can also vary according to the type of hymen.

Hymen types are named as follows:

  • Annular Hymen
  • Imperfone Hymen
  • Septal Hymen
  • Kribriform Hymen
  • Xentric Hymen


It is observed that the hymen, which is flexible as the hymen is divided into different types, does not rupture or bleed due to the hymen not getting enough pressure during intercourse in some women. These types of hymen are usually damaged during birth, and in some women, the hymen can easily be torn during childhood or adolescence.


How is Hymen Planting (Hymenoplasty) Performed?

Hymen Planting operations can be operated in two ways, permanent and temporary. Temporary sutures are surgical procedures performed before the specified date of intercourse. The tissue taken from the back of the vagina with the flap method is added to the anterior part by bringing the opposite parts of the previously torn membrane together. It is sewn with the thread that matches the skin color, since this thread melts in the body, there is no need to remove the stitches after the operation.

Permanent hymen repair with an unknown relationship date is more commonly preferred. In this operation, a new membrane is made from the vaginal tissue of the woman. With this operation, expected bleeding occurs even in sexual intercourse after years.

Postoperative complications are very rare. Only a slight pain and burning is felt. It is enough to have bed rest, to use the medicines deemed appropriate by the doctor and to go to the control one week later. The person can then return to her normal life. Even if the intervention is performed under general anesthesia, the patient does not need to lie down for a long time. Permanent planting is not recommended for women who do not have a definite rest for a week after the operation. And then a normal marital life can be maintained.

Even women who have given birth can choose this operation. The operation performed can only be understood as a result of a specialist's examination. Since the subject is private, it will remain between the patient and the doctor. The operation is incomprehensible before and during intercourse, and it is not possible to feel it with a finger. The membrane becomes old intact. The expected bleeding will occur in the first intercourse.

Hymen repair operations are not only done for virginity. This membrane can be repaired after some operations performed under the obligation to access the upper genital organs.

What Should Be Done Before Hymen Planting (Hymenoplasty)?

During the Hymen Planting operation, first of all, there should be no vaginal discharge. If it does, opening may occur in the operated tissue due to infection. If there is an infectious discharge, the infection should be treated using antibiotic drugs before the operation. Hymen repair should be done right after your menstrual bleeding or until 7 days before your period. Menstruation immediately after the operation may cause the wound to open. Before the surgery, you should stop washing this area with soap, shower gel or genital cleanser and you should not use a pad daily. Problems such as allergies and dermatitis in the mucosa should not delay the healing of the wound.

What Should Be Considered After Hymen Planting?

Shower should not be taken especially for a week after the hymen planting procedure. In addition, care should be taken not to be constipated for the first seven days after surgery, and medications should be used regularly. Dressing should be done twice a day, in the morning and evening, as directed by the doctor. After the hymen surgery, one month should not be cycling or jogging. Sports such as pilates and yoga can be started 1 month after surgery.
