Patient :I am 18 with a septate hymen. I refuse to wear tampons and I have never had sex. One day I would like to do both. I do not want to tell my parents. I have never been to the OBGYN. If I were to go get it surgically removed, but I am under my parents' health insurance, would they find out? What age will I have to be off their insurance? Could I get the procedure done at my college without them knowing?
