What is the remedy for 'imperforate hymen'?

What is the remedy for 'imperforate hymen'?

Genuine surgery: A pediatric surgeon should be well versed in the procedure. A general gynecologist also should have the appropriate skill set to solve this problem. It is in general a simple problem to solve. Be sure to find someone you feel comfortable with and that answers all of your questions. All that is required is to open the hymen by simple incisions and pain control.

Second time sex (no hymen), hurts when bf thrusts deep. He can only fit a bit inside. Does this go away by itself or do I need treatment?

Second time sex (no hymen), hurts when bf thrusts deep. He can only fit a bit inside. Does this go away by itself or do I need treatment?

Time Is On Your Side: Just be patient, take your time, go slowly, maybe with some extra lube, and your body will adjust. Your "bf" will also have to be gentle, sensitive and patient. And before you know it, boffo!! head bangin' the headboard (if that's what you like...)---The tissue down there is pretty soft and pliable so just give it some time and gentle nudging.....

My husband suffering from ED having treatment but penis goes only 2inches in vagina and hymen not broken need help want to get pregnant?

My husband suffering from ED having treatment but penis goes only 2inches in vagina and hymen not broken need help want to get pregnant?

Need more info: Two things need to be addressed. One, he should talk to a urologist concerning different treatments for ED. Secondly tou should consult with your OB. GYN to make sure your hymen is really still intact or that the hymen may be too "thick" for your husband to penetrate and he needs a firmer erection to "break through".

What are the types of hymen?

What are the types of hymen?

See Below: There are only really 2 types of hymen, perforate (open) and imperforate (closed). The perforate hymen can come in different types of opening (slit, septum or microperoforate). Which means that they are partially open. If you are seeing your periods, then it is perforate. Once you have intercourse, most hymens will tear to become normal.

Where exactly is hymen located?

Where exactly is hymen located?

Vagina: It is a membrane in the vaginal opening that all girls are born with. It was used as a check that women were virgins on their wedding night but that is flawed logic as the hymen can be broken innocently before marriage by certain positions or activities like bicycling. You can read the basics on the internet. Wikipedia (not usually a trusted source) has a decent introduction and diagram.

Does the tearing of a hymen hurt?

Does the tearing of a hymen hurt?

Minimally: Many young women worry about pain from tearing a hymen. Surprisingly, many women don't even notice any discomfort when using a tampon or having sexual intercourse for the first time. Additionally, you may have broken your hymen without realizing it through tampon use or vigorous activity (bike, horse riding, gymnastics, etc). If you have concerns or are worried, discuss this with your doctor.

How to know if my hymen is broken?

How to know if my hymen is broken?

Use a compact mirror: And gently use your fingers. It must be at least partially broken because at your stated age of 43 years you must have had multiple menses and the blood has been coming out between the lips of the vagina. Ergo, the hymen cannot be completely intact! QED [From the Latin: Thus it is demonstrated.]

Why?: The hymen is a fibro-membranous structure at the entrqnce of the vagina. As such it cannot be strengthened. Why do you ask such an odd question? Do you have concerns about preserving the "badge of virginity? ".
