A Hymenectomy is a minor medical procedure involving the surgical removal or opening of the hymen. It is done to treat imperforate hymen or other situations where the hymen is unusually thick or rigid in order to allow normal menstruation or sexual intercourse.
A Hymenectomy (sometimes referred to as Hymenectomy) is a surgical procedure where an opening is created in the hymen. It is often used when a person has a hymen that is abnormally thick, septate, or otherwise obstructing the flow of menstruation (imperforate hymen).
When the hymen only has a small opening (a microperforate hymen), the surgery can be used to alleviate pain and discomfort.
