Hymenoplasty, also known as hymenorrhaphy is the restoration or construction of a women’s hymen.

Sometimes, a torn hymen does not equate to loss of virginity but depending on its rigidity, could be caused by daily activities such as strenuous athletics, horseback, or bicycle riding. Sometimes, placing a tampon may also rapture it.

Hence, restoring the hymen could be due to a wide range of reasons.
