The UMC Utrecht is going to offer a suppository that creates the impression that the woman is bleeding in much the same way as occurs when her hymen is broken, the hospital announced on Wednesday.

AMSTERDAM – Muslim women wishing to "restore their virginity" may soon have an alternative to reconstructive surgery of the hymen. The UMC Utrecht is going to offer a suppository that creates the impression that the woman is bleeding in much the same way as occurs when her hymen is broken, the hospital announced on Wednesday. The suppository causes "a red, mucus-like discharge" about 30 minutes after insertion.

The UMC receives about 20 requests a year for hymen reconstructions from women of Turkish and Moroccan background. About half of the requests are granted, says gynaecologist Van Seumeren.

Van Seumeren stresses during consultations with these women that most women bleed very little if at all during their first experience with penetration.

"About 60 percent of girls bleed during the first time they have sex because the hymen is torn, but the amount of blood varies greatly. 40 percent of women show no signs of bleeding during their first time."
