Welcome to ehealthforum.
The rupture of hymen due to D&C can be repaired. Hymen can also get ruptured in a girl due to vigorous and strenuous physical activity. So rupture of hymen on nuptial night is no longer considered as proof of virginity. Vagina shape is different in different women, so do not worry about altered vaginal shape and size. The rupture of hymen cannot be made out unless a person is well adept with it. Only professionals like gynecologist can examine and tell if it is ruptured.
If you are still worried about it, then all you need is to visit a gynecologist for examination to see for the extent of the rupture and discuss about getting hymenoplasty or hymen repair done to restore the virgin status. It will not have any stitches that can be seen. Visit these links to know more about them: tml tml
Take care.
