It’s obvious some women feel uncomfortable with their bodies after giving birth due loose v*gina as they feel childbirth and pregnancy play huge roles in adjusting their bodies down there.
According to Punch, experts say being loose down below is not the result of too much s*x, as there are several causes, including menopause and ageing.
As for childbirth, an obstetrics/gynaecologist, Dr. Hilda Hutcherson, assures that in most cases, childbirth will not ruin vaginas.
She says, “It’s true that the pelvic-floor muscles may be taxed during a vaginal delivery, which means the opening may feel looser and sex can feel different for some women for a few months, but the vagina is an amazing, elastic organ that can stretch enough to bring a 10-pound baby safely into the world and then snap back to its normal size.”
So, guys, take it easy. It’s your child she has had, right?
Now, if, truly, a woman needs to be a little tighter down below for whatever reasons, here’s what sexologists suggest…
• Vaginoplasty surgery. This is a surgical procedure during which the surgeon will use dissolvable stitches to join together the stretched muscle at the back of the vagina, effectively shortening it. The surgeon will then remove any excess vaginal lining and tighten the surrounding soft tissues. Laser may be used by some surgeons to carry out this procedure. The surgery takes no more than 1-2 hours but the recovery duration is at least four to six weeks. Following vaginoplasty, women can expect to have a tighter and smaller vagina, allowing more friction and contraction strength during sexual intercourse.
Caution: Vaginal surgery can result in complications, such as loss of sensation, nerve damage, scarring and infection.
• Pelvic floor exercises. You can feel your pelvic floor muscles if you try to stop the flow of urine when you go to the toilet. A lot of doctors suggest pelvic exercises and vaginal tightening gels to help restore vaginal tightness. To strengthen your pelvic floor muscles, sit comfortably and squeeze the muscles 10-15 times in a row. Avoid holding your breath, or tightening your stomach, buttock, or thigh, muscles, at the same time. These exercises are natural and quite effective. Caution: You need to do it every day and results take time!
• Vaginal tightening gels. Vaginal rejuvenation gels are natural treatments produced from pure herbal remedies meant for tightening your vagina. Such creams, gels and sprays are made with all natural ingredients. The gel improves lubrication and renews the vaginal tissues in the vaginal lining, resulting in firming and tightening of the vagina. Most women can feel the tightening sensation within minutes after the first application.
