Do It YourselfIf you do not feel ready to confront your family, and feel that all the counselling in the world will not help your situation, then you should read this section. Have you read the section Why - not? If you still feel it is important for you to bleed, you need to know that there are alternatives to surgery.
- Talk to your doctor about getting a prescription for the pill. If you are on the pill, you can plan your period to coincide with your wedding night.
- When the occasion arises, tell your family, that many women do not bleed at first intercourse. This is how God made woman and God is infallible.
- If negative remarks are made about your honour, you can ask your family to contact their doctor or another medical professional. The doctor will confirm, that failure to bleed does not mean, that the girl is not a virgin.
Some women use other methods like placing chicken liver in their vagina. This can lead to infection and should be strongly discouraged. Always speak to your doctor if you are considering other options.
Have you heard of other methods, or have you conjured up blood on your own wedding night? Drop us a line. You will of course remain anonymous, and you will be helping other women who are experiencing these intense pressures.
