Women get ‘virginity fix’ NHS operations in Muslim-driven trend

Women are being given controversial ‘virginity repair’ operations on the NHS, it emerged last night.

The headline is slightly misleading. “Muslim-driven trend” implies a trend started by Muslims and adopted by others. But this is a Muslim trend, period. According to Dr. Magdy Hend, a gynaecologist now in Britain who started hymen reconstruction more than 18 years ago in the Middle East, the clients “might be British of ethnic background, they might be immigrants, or some people come from abroad, Asia, Middle East, the Gulf, and they don’t want to have it done back home.” He says that demand is increasing, particularly from UK residents.

In most cases the procedure involves the construction of an artificial membrane, sometimes including a capsule of an artificial blood-like substance. The operation “is intended to be performed within a few days before an intended marriage,” says the Mail.

Talk about a quick technical fix.
