I'm not a virgin, but my hymen doesn't seem to have been "broken" or completely torn. It's getting pretty uncomfortable to have sex now, because of my hymen still being intact. I'm not extremely comfortable going to a gynecologist, but I really do think that this needs to be fixed rather soon. I have a septate hymen, and I was wondering if there are any ways to break it without having sex.

Hi there, thank you for posting your question. My area of expertise is in human sexual dysfunction. I hope I can be of some small help to you.

A septate hymen needs to be dealt with by a doctor. This is no big deal and can be sorted with just local anaesthesia in a matter of minutes. It is an "office proceedure".

Dr Andrew Rynne.
