Teenaged girls may not be aware of hymen tear since there is no pain, no or little blood loss. Generally the hymen tears into two or more parts and most of the times the tearing is accompanied by slender bleeding that stops spontaneously.

Afterwards the torn regions in upper layer of hymen tissue will be removed. This is done, so that tissues grow back and then they are stitched together.

Then as usual the patient can perform her routine activities and there won’t be any scar. The surgery adopts dissolvable sutures for optimal results.
