Hymenoplasty Or Female Re-Virginization
HYMENOPLASTY OR FEMALE RE-VIRGINIZATION
The hymen is the mucous membrane that partially closes the entrance to the vagina, named after the god of marriage in classical Greek mythology, Hymenaios. . Embryologically, it is a membranous remnant at the junction of sino-vaginal bulb and mullerian ducts.it is a vestigial structure,but may have some role in protecting female infants from pelvic infections.It serves no known biological function in adults, and its rupture is of no medical consequence thus its repair has no direct medical benefit.
The hymen is a relatively bloodless membrane and it is unlikely to bleed significantly even if it is torn. Hymen may be torn during sexual intercourse, vigorous physical exercises such as cycling, use of tampons or a gynecological examination. Contrary some studies have noted intact hymen even in women who stated to have sexual intercourse.
Inspite of hymen being a medically irrelevant structure female seek hymenal repair or commonly called hymenoplasty because intact hymen is falsly held as a sign of virginity. Even though bleeding may be due to traumatic penentration causing vaginal mucosa tear Blood stained bed-sheets are expected on nuptial nights. they are vividly portrayed in popular cinema to represent bleeding from ruptured hymen on defloration. Unfortunately, in some cultures, the status has become emblematic of family honor and worth and the Koran states that a bride has to be a virgin, and according to the custom a woman found on her wedding night not to be virgin will be punished accordingly. These expectation has harmful repercussion on the woman which ranges from shame to honor killing thus young women sometimes go to great lengths to get their hymen repaired.
