Hymen reconstruction procedure recreates a hymen-like structure and results in mild bleeding upon intercourse. Using a surgical technique, the torn edges of the hymen are put back together. After this type of hymen surgery and without complication, subsequent intercourse will typically tear the membrane causing pain and bleeding.The hymenoplasty is usually a 30-45 minute procedure. The doctor uses dissolvable stitches to reconnect the skin membrane that once partially covered the opening to the vagina. After surgery you will have bruising, swelling, and minor discomfort in the groin area. Swelling and bruising will be most noticeable after the first day and will slowly subside after that over a period of 2 to 3 weeks. You should avoid sexual intercourse for 4-6 weeks to avoid injuring your healing wounds.
