Well unless you want to get your hymen redone, I don't see why there would be a need to remove it. It breaks for many reasons, and after that you don't really notice it's there...

If I may ask, why do you want it removed?

Aside from being able to have sex without it hurting, I'm so sick of the tampon getting stuck personally. Pads are a mess. I've tried to stretch it out but it's too thick. I even read on another forum of a girl who just cut it herself! Which seems dangerous, but on this one people talked about just going to the gyno and getting it cut there. I don't have insurance so I would love to know the cost.

I would recommend just going to your Gyno and talking to her about and the issues you're having. If she can cut it, I doubt you'd have to pay for it or go through surgery for it. I'm not 100% percent sure though since mine isn't isn't septate, but I would definitely talk to your Gyno next time you go in.

I recently had my septate hymen removed under general anesthetic. I felt itchy due to the stitches but it is relatively painless. I found it a little hard to sit down due to the discomfort. I could describe the feeling as if you have inserted a tampon incorrectly. It was a day procedure... only took approx 30mins. Unfortunately I did not have private health insurance, so I ended up paying $2,500. Hope that helps.

Hey I had a septate hymen but got it removed yesterday.
So let me see.

First I had to go to the doctors before I could see a gynecologist. That cost $20.

Next was the consultation with my gynecologist, this cost us $150 but because we have medicare we got $68 back.

Then the actual surgery came out as approximately $250, but because we have private health cover we didn't have to pay a thing.

So for me, the total was $102. If you don't have medicare or any health cover, you're looking at about $420.

septate hymen
Sometimes they must break with sex or other activity. I am 22, and I am going to have mine removed because my husband and I have been unable to break it after 5 months of TERRIBLE pain. So breaking it through sexual activity is not always the greatest option for this. I know because we also broke my "normal" hymen.
