Re: Septate Hymen
Hello, I also had trouble with this when I was young, like you say the tampon would go in ok, but would get a loop of skin caught around the end when trying to remove it. I remember it was quite uncomfortable and I would have to push the skin off of the end of the tampon to get it out! This was about 20-25 years ago for me and I never did anything about it as the internet was not up and running at that time and I was too embarrassed to speak to my mum, ( I have since found out that my twin sister was having the same problem). I think mine sorted itself out when I lost my virginity, but after having my first child I was aware of a little piece of skin protruding from my vagina. I spoke to my doctor about this and then had a small op to have it removed.
The surgery was fine, I certinally would NOT recommend you cut it yourself! Go and see your doctor, don't be embarrassed about it, remember they see this kind of thing all the time. I wish I had got mine sorted earlier, I know it can be scary, but you will be glad you did it, even if you just discuss your symptoms and possible options with a professional.
