Vaginal atresia can be congenital or acquired. The tissue is virgin in primary vaginal atresia or agenesis, so various methods have been used with successful outcomes. On the other hand, one can expect a lot of fibrosed tissue in secondary atresia. There is no elaborate literature on secondary vaginal atresia. There is also no standard treatment for both the types of vaginal atresia. The use of amnion graft and surgicel in vaginoplasty for secondary atresia is one of our experiences with best results. We report a case of a 22-year-old primipara who presented with dyspareunia and cyclical lower abdominal pain for the past 4 months. She had a history of traumatic vaginal delivery 3 months prior to presentation. On examination, she was diagnosed with secondary vaginal atresia. We managed her by vaginoplasty with amnion grafting and surgicel, followed by regular dilatation with soft vaginal mould for the next 6 weeks. Our patient is doing well with normal coital function on follow-up.
