I have a very thick septate hymen, and it is

Patient

Q: I have a very thick septate hymen, and it is increasingly becoming a problem. No amount of stretching it etc is working, and sexual intercourse with my boyfriend is non existent. I gave up on tampons because inserting/removing them was proving too painful. Can I have it cut on the NHS? If not, how much will it cost me privately? It is making my life a misery.
