Vaginal Tightening

A loose vagina is a common concern amongst women, especially after regular sex, childbirth, or with increasing age. It is very common as the vaginas are elastic and are meant to stretch.

Causes behind loose Vagina

Throughout life, various factors can cause a loose vagina. The causes behind loose vagina may include-

Age

With increasing age, muscles and tendons in the pelvic area become weak and can result in a loosened vagina. This can also lead to the patient experiencing urine leakage, pain in the pelvic area, and pain while having sex.

Childbirth

Whenever a woman gets pregnant, the body is forced to push itself off limits to accommodate the new growing child and during childbirth, the muscles around the vaginal canal expand to make space for the baby. This often results in the weakening of the walls of the woman and leads to a loosening vagina.

Other factors

Other factors that can lead to a loosening vagina include multiple childbirths, traumatic injury, health conditions, and even menopause which are responsible for weak the muscles and resulting in loosen vagina.

Vaginal rejuvenation

Surgical Vaginal rejuvenation

Surgical vaginal rejuvenation involves anesthesia or sedation for the procedure to be carried out. The treatment procedures covered under surgical vaginal rejuvenation may involve-

Labiaplasty- in this procedure, the labia or the lips of the vagina are reshaped.

Vaginoplasty- this treatment procedure is beneficial after childbirth for tightening and repairing the vaginal canal.

Clitoral hood reduction- in this procedure, all the extra tissues covering the clitoral are removed.

Monsplasty- all the extra fat tissues are removed from the public bone area with this treatment.

Vulvoplasty- the vaginal area is reshaped to correct the loosened vagina and is achieved with this procedure.

Perineoplasty- with this treatment procedure, the space between the vagina and anus is strengthened, which is known as the perineum.

Non-surgical Vaginal rejuvenation

Non- surgical Vaginal rejuvenation treatment procedures are non-invasive with a short recovery time. They are beneficial in tightening and toning the vaginal area without the need for needles or surgery. It includes heating the top layer of the vaginal tissue which leads the underlying tissue to create extra collagen and new, firmer tissue.

Non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation treatment includes-

  • CO2 Laser treatment- In the CO2 laser treatment, the laser heats the upper layer of the vaginal tissue causing the lower layers of the tissues to produce collagen. This makes the skin firmer and tighter.
  • RF (Radio frequency) treatment- In the RF (Radio frequency) treatment, radiofrequency is used just like the waves used in the microwave but to a lesser extent. The RF waves heat the vaginal tissue which encourages blood flow and leads to collagen production.

Both the non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation treatment procedures are outpatient procedures and in very rare cases, local anesthesia is used and the patient can resume all normal activities on the same day without the requirement of any recovery time.

How to tighten your vagina?

Pelvic exercises can prove to be very beneficial to strengthen your pelvic floor muscles. These muscles can be part of a person’s core and help support your bladder, uterus, small intestine, and rectum. Whenever the pelvic muscles weaken or the vagina becomes loose then, the person might

  • Accidently leak urine
  • Feel the constant urge to pee
  • Experience pain in your pelvic area
  • Experience pain during sex

The pelvic floor muscle exercise can be beneficial for a person’s urinary inconsistency. Consult a doctor for a proper examination and treatment plan according to the thorough examination.

Exercises for vaginal tightening

Some exercises beneficial for strengthening the pelvic floor exercises include-

Kegel exercises- First, figure out your pelvic muscles so that you can focus on them while exercising. This exercise helps to slowly strengthen your pelvic area by strengthening pelvic muscles which help to manage the urine urgency.

Pelvic tilt exercises- pelvic tilt exercises help strengthen the pelvic muscles.

Vaginal cones- the pelvic floor muscles get strengthened by vaginal cones. The vaginal cone is a weighted, tampon-sized object that is placed in the vagina and is put on hold. It may be helpful with urine inconsistency after childbirth.

Neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES)- NMES can help strengthen your vaginal muscles by sending an electrical current through the pelvic floor using a probe. The electrical stimulation can cause the pelvic floor muscles to contract and relax.

Naturally present loose vagina is a myth. Age and childbirth can stretch your muscles and lead to a loosened vagina and it won’t be permanent. Some exercises and vaginal tightening treatment are required, which can help with all the symptoms and vaginal tightening.
