Can virginity be restored?

Even in a Catholic-centric and conservative country like the Philippines, women are more confident in taking action when it comes to their sex life. And while some still choose to wait until they’re married before having sex, it seems a growing number of Filipinas now belong to the “sexually active” group. For some, it also seems that virginity has become overrated given the growing number of Filipinas marrying at a late age.

However, what if through science, it is now possible for a woman to reclaim her virginity?

A website called offers women a way of becoming a “virgin” again: vaginal surgery, which forms the core of re-virgination. “Forget Botox, liposuction or breast enlargement. The newest trend in plastic surgery for US women is vaginal reconstruction, including hymenoplasty, which offers patients new virginity,” reads the site. defines hymenoplasty as a surgical procedure designed to repair and reconstruct the hymen. Bleeding occurs when the hymen tears after penetration when having sex for the first time. This type of surgery pulls the tissue back together to restore a “virgin-like” quality. Hymenoplasty generally takes one to two hours to perform, with patients able to return to work the next day.

In the country, the Belo Medical Clinic offers a similar procedure. Perineorraphy is a surgical procedure to tighten and repair the vagina. It is a safe, out-patient procedure that allows tightening of a relaxed vaginal outlet resulting from previous childbirth as well as repairing vaginal muscles for better muscle control. This treatment prevents occurrence of chronic and recurrent urinary tract and vaginal infections.
