The hymen may in some special cases be high-edged, hard and thick (“rigid hymen”). In this way, harsh hymen can prevent sexual intercourse or create pain during intercourse. In all these cases, the hymen can be removed by a simple operation that takes 10-15 minutes. Thus, the relationship can be realized much more easily.
The surgical removal of the hymen is known in the medical literature as the "hymenectomy (operation"). Among our people, this procedure is referred to by definitions such as the removal of virginity surgically, the operation of virginity by surgery, and the removal of the maiden by surgery.
The point that should not be forgotten here is that in the presence of vaginismus problem, 90% of which is due to psychological causes, the removal of the hymen alone will harm the patient more than snow. Hymen should only be removed if it is a barrier to intercourse in patients with vaginismus.
In vaginismus patients, if there is no structural (anatomical) problem, surgical procedure is not recommended and psychological approaches suitable for the patient should be preferred.
How is Himectomy performed?
Hymenectomy surgery is generally performed with local anesthesia, that is, after the operation of the surgical site with injections. It is a fairly painless procedure.
If there is a special request such as not feeling anything from our patient in our clinic, it can also be performed under general anesthesia.
The operation usually takes about 10-15 minutes.
When can the person return to work after the operation?
There is no harm in getting the person back to work one day after the operation. There is no post-operative restriction.
How many days after the maiden is removed, the first sexual experience can take place?
The first sexual intercourse can take place 20-25 days after surgery. Since the special stitches used are of the self-melting type, they do not need to be removed after surgery.
Is there a risk of hymen removal operation?
This operation has no risk when performed by an experienced gynecologist surgeon. It is natural to have mild bleeding and mild tingling pain after surgery. In this case, simple pain medications can be relaxing.
Who are eligible for hymen removal?
In clinics, the hymen is cut and removed in cases where sexual intercourse cannot occur as a result of the hymen being thicker, harder or with higher edges than normal.
The reason for some women who demand this type of operation is the difference in their perception of the first sexual experience. By thinking that it will affect their later sexual lives, individuals can have their hymen operated in an operation to avoid bad memories involving bloody and painful troubles.
Again, not finding the first sexual relationship too hygienic is the reason for the operation.
Also, since giving a man a maiden in our country also means “to submit to the pressures related to ownership” that will come from him in the future, it is preferable to get it done by an operation on his own. (Feminist perspective)
