I have recently discovered that I have a septate hymen.. When I use tampons the piece of skin/tissue stops it from coming out and I must move it to the side in order to take out the tampon, it can sometimes be quite painful, I usually don't have problems putting them in.. I know it's nothing to be embarrassed about but I won't tell my mother and I don't want to go to a doctor.. Is there any way I can break it myself? I don't want to have to get a surgery (considering I won't even tell my mam or go to a doctor). I would really appreciate some help on how to break it myself.
If you were my patient, I would tell you to come and see me! Doctors (and mothers for that matter) are not bad people! If I were going to advise you without seeing you however, I would advise you to please NOT try any cutting or breaking. If a patient wants to have a septum removed, we generally do that in the OR under anesthesia. Sometimes there can be significant bleeding and a suture is necessary. If my patient wanted to try to remove a septum without surgery or intercourse, I would suggest vaginal dilators.
