Have you been fighting a silent battle of embarrassment and low self-esteem because of loose vagina muscles? Are you worried that a loose vagina is affecting your sexual intimacy? If you are looking for a solution, you can opt to tighten the vagina. However, talking to an expert beforehand will help.

When contemplating vagina tightening, ensure to ask the following questions to your OB/GYN.

1. What is a Loose Vagina?

Your gynaecologist understands the female anatomy. Therefore, they will advise you on vagina laxity and what it is if you are unsure. If you have further questions before the diagnosis, this is the time to ask them, too, to give you insights into what you may have.

2. How does Vaginal Looseness Occur?

This is a common question that women will ask when they are not sure of the symptoms that they are experiencing. Usually, a loose vagina may be a result of several things, including:

· Traumatic injuries.

· Certain health conditions.

· Aging and menopause: As individuals continue to age, their muscles grow weaker and loose. This happens to the vaginal muscles, too, due to decreased estrogen levels, especially as one enters the perimenopausal stage.

· Natural childbirth: The vagina has to stretch for it to accommodate a baby being pushed out during delivery. Even though it may contract afterward, it might never get back to what it was before, which could result in looseness.

Again, the expert that you see could advise about this too.

3. What are the Causes of Vaginal Looseness?

In addition to the above causes, the following ones may also apply:

· The genetically determined physical structure of the woman.

· Aging tendons and muscles that create weak pelvic floor muscles.

· Reduced estrogen levels as a result of health issues.

4. What are the Symptoms of a Loose Vagina?

Different individuals may report varying symptoms of vaginal laxity. The most common symptoms include:

· Vaginal dryness.

· Vaginal itching and odour.

· Pain or discomfort during intercourse.

· Urinary incontinence.

· A burning sensation during urination.

5. Must I have Surgery?

The answer to this question is no. An expert physician should advise you on safe, comfortable ways of dealing with vaginal looseness. Some of the suggestions may include:

· Traditional Kegel exercises or using a Kegel device.

· Non-surgical vagina tightening using Kegel exercisers.

· Burning excess body fats.

· Avoiding strenuous activities or labour.

· Eating high-fiber foods to boost prevention against constipation.
