You should visit your doctor about have the surgery as i can't find any information about how much it would cost.....your doctor will tell you if you need surgery or if it will break on it's own..(with sexual intercourse) Jenny

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.
