You can go home the same day as a hymenectomy, and recovery takes a few days to a few weeks. You may have some discomfort when the anesthesia wears off. You also may have light bleeding from the surgical area.

Your healthcare provider will give you instructions about how to take care of yourself after a hymenectomy. They may include limiting certain activities, such as:

  • Bathing.
  • Exercising.
  • Having sex.
  • Using tampons.
