Im having surgery the 10th..I asked my doc to stitch me up down in the vagina..

When I asked my doc to stich me up like I was a virgin again he acted surprized..i thought it was standard. He said to remind him before surgery. I said well I had four 9 pound boys I think it needs some tightening... But he acted like it was "special" request. Has any one else asked or got this? Love, nervous em

It may be the "like I was a virgin again" part he was surprised at. Are you wanting everything tightened up or are you wanting a hymen repair? He may have just been unsure about what you were asking for...

(((emazinggrace))) why are you having the hysterectomy? The reason I ask is, for those of us who have had a TVH for prolapse and required A&P (anterior and posterior) repairs for a cystocele and rectocele, there is some tightening that happens as a result of the A&P repairs. Other than that, it is definitely not "standard" and I doubt insurance would pay for it unless there is a medical reason why there needs to be a procedure done to tighten the vagina.

Good luck with your surgery!

Re: Im having surgery the 10th..I asked my doc to stitch me up down in the vagina..

Dear Em,
I think the person who mentioned hymen repair meant that "virgins" have a thin layer of skin known as the hymen at the vaginal opening and that is why some women bleed the first time they have sex. Most women don't even have an intact hymen by the time they have sexual intercourse from all kinds of reasons like sports, tampons ect, all can rip it. They cannot replace the hymen regardless.
I understand what you mean though. If your doctor puts down that he needs to do A&P (anterior/posterior) repair than I am sure insurance would cover it, otherwise it would be considered an elective procedure. There are a lot of plastic surgeon's who now do vaginal rejuvenation.......I also had complications from Novasure so I feel your pain... I am having a rectocele repair which is done through the vagina and some women do complain of painful sex afterwards. I pray that doesn't happen to me. Make sure he doesn't make you too tight...LOL
Best Wishes
