If you are a woman who has had several children or in some cases even one child, then you are well aware of what may happen to your vagina. Normally, after childbirth a woman’s vagina loosens and sometimes it can difficult to tighten the vagina again. Childbirth is not the only reason a vagina may loosen. Some other reasons may be weight gain or loss, from having too much sex or simply just from aging. Many women are often embarrassed about this and will shy away from sex with their partners because they feel too “loose” or feel that they cannot satisfy their partner. Luckily there are several methods women can try to tighten the vagina after childbirth.
The first method is by far the easiest and it is also free of charge. Many female doctors have ranted and raved about how great Kegels can be for your vagina and how simple they are to do. Kegel exercises not only strengthen the vagina’s vital muscles but Kegel’s also make the muscles more elastic which can result in more pleasurable intercourse. In order to do Kegels correctly you will need to practice squeezing your lower muscles for about 4-5 seconds at a time. You then release and repeat. Kegels should be done sitting up straight or while you are on the toilet. If you do these exercises 5-10 times a day, 10 times per session you will see results in approximately 8-10 weeks.
Another vagina tightening method that has recently gained popularity are vaginal cones. Vaginal cones are very light in weight and resemble the shape of a tampon. You also insert the cones in the vagina the same way you would insert a tampon. They should be inserted 2 times a day for 15 minutes each time. Vaginal codes are affordable and can be bought from your local pharmacy.
If you are willing to pay a bit extra you could also consider getting Electrical stimulation. Electrical stimulation involves a probe which is then inserted within the vagina. The probe stimulates the pelvic floor muscles with an electric current and assists by helping the muscles contract and relax. You will need to get Electrical stimulation about once every 4 days for 20 minutes per session in order to see results.
Another method is to purchase vaginal tightening creams called “virgin creams”. Virgin creams are also sold in pharmacies and can range between 20-60 dollars per tube or bottle. Virgin creams are completely natural and 100% safe. They contain all herbal ingredients which stimulates the vaginal muscles, abdomen and uterine. There are no side effects and the virgin cream must be applied to the vagina 2 times a day for 5 days. If you do not see results after the initial 5 days are over then you can continue to use the cream once per day until you are satisfied.
Having a looser vagina after childbirth is nothing to be ashamed or embarrassed about. Almost all women experience this and there are ways to help the issue. You can follow one of the methods mentioned above or even speak to your health care practitioner about other methods he or she can suggest.
