In brief: Why was it done
Female circumcision is female genital mutilation and consists of amputation of the clitoris and labia minora plus frequently closing off most of vagina to prevent penetration.
Banned in all civilised countries. Do you mean hymenotomy or hymenectomy performed for a rigid or thickened hymen?. If so, you can have sex as soon as there as all pain &rtenderness has disappeared.
