Childbirth has a profound effect on the body. It also affects many aspects of your life. After childbirth, the vagina may feel loose, which can lead to embarrassing symptoms and loss of body or sexual confidence.
Vaginal Tightening Surgery
Vaginal tightening can help restore the integrity of the vagina after childbirth. Here’s what you need to know about getting the tone and form back that you had before your pregnancy and restore its full function.

Why Does My Vagina Need Tightening?

The rings of muscle in the vagina stretch during childbirth, allowing the baby to pass through the birth canal. This increases the diameter of the vagina to beyond its pre-childbirth state and reduces its muscle tone.

For some women, this can lead to lack of sensation during sex for both partners. You may also experience incontinence, finding that you pass urine when coughing, sneezing, or exercising.

Natural Techniques For Vaginal Tightening

You can take steps to tighten your vaginal wall after childbirth. Regular pelvic floor exercises, known as Kegels, can be helpful. You can practice this by squeezing together your muscles as if trying to stop the flow of urine.

Repeating this motion 10 times at least three times a day will tighten your vagina and reduce symptoms. However, for this technique to have maximum impact you need to continue the exercises on a daily basis over an extended period of time.

Is Vaginal Tightening Surgery For Me?

You are a good candidate for vaginal tightening surgery if Kegel exercises haven’t restored your muscle tone to your pre-pregnancy state and you’re confident that your childbearing days are over.

If you would like to make a permanent change and feel that your life is negatively affected by the way your vagina feels and functions, then you could consider vaginal tightening surgery (vaginoplasty).

During the procedure, the muscles along the length of the vagina are shortened and any excess skin removed. This improves tone to the muscle wall and reduces the diameter of the vagina, resulting in increased sensation and control.

Life After Vaginal Tightening Surgery

The procedure requires an overnight stay, but recovery is quick and the effects are long lasting. Your vagina will feel firmer, with no stress incontinence. You’ll feel more friction during sex, providing a more pleasurable experience for both you and your partner.

While having a baby is a life changing experience, it doesn’t have to change your body forever. If you find that you’re no longer enjoying sex, or feel embarrassed by the condition of your vagina, surgery can be an effective permanent solution to restore your control and self-esteem.
