A hymenotomy is a minor medical procedure available at Kingsbridge Private Hospital Belfast. It involves the surgical removal or opening of the hymen.

It is often performed on patients with imperforate hymens or septate hymens, or other situations where the hymen is unusually thick or rigid.

In the case of female patients who have a hymen without any opening, an opening may be created in order to allow menstruation.

If the opening is extremely small or the band(s) of a septate hymen limit access to the vaginal opening, hymenotomy surgery can help to allow for comfortable sexual and relieve pain or discomfort that occurs when inserting/removing tampons.
