Treatments for Imperforate Hymen in Children

Imperforate hymen treatment at Boston Children's Hospital

The Center for Congenital Anomalies of the Reproductive Tract offers the minor surgical procedure needed to remove the extra tissue covering your daughter's hymen.

  • An imperforate hymen can be surgically removed in infancy.
  • If discovered later in life, the imperforate hymen can be removed at the time of diagnosis. The procedure removes the excess tissue and places sutures to avoid scarring and reblockage of the area.
