Hymen breaks only during intercourse

Does one's hymen break only during intercourse? Also, I've heard that there is some treatment/surgery to restore virginity? Please tell me more.

It is a myth that the hymen ruptures only during intercourse. Having said that, let me also say that a broken hymen doesn't necessarily indicate that you have lost your virginity. Apart from the first intercourse, the hymen can also get ruptured due to strenuous physical activity, swimming, falling down or tampon usage.

Once virginity is lost, you cannot restore it. However, the surgical technique of hymenoplasty can restore the physical hymen. It is performed by a cosmetic surgeon or gynaecologist, requires local anaesthesia and lasts 45-60 minutes. The patient can resume normal activities the same day.

Remember that the original hymen cannot be repaired or regenerated. The new hymen is a mucosa fold, which merely mimics the original. This surgery can even be done on women who have borne children. A side effect can be excessive bleeding.
