What causes: loose vagina?
It’s not much of a mystery what causes a loose vagina (i.e., vaginal laxity). The main reasons a vaginal can feel less tight or loose is from vaginal childbirth, and from the pelvic floor and vaginal muscles weakening with the onset of perimenopause and menopause.
Females are often concerned about having a loose vagina after giving birth. This is completely understandable, as childbirth has a dramatic effect on a woman’s health and physicality (postnatal conditions: hair loss, incontinence, stretch marks…). The more vaginal births a woman has, the more risk there is to the tone and strength of the pelvic floor muscles deteriorating — vaginal laxity can become a concern after having a baby.
Post-childbirth, the best way to help snap that vag back into shape is through pelvic floor muscle stimulation, and the most effective and fast way to do that is by having non-surgical Emsella loose vagina treatment sessions.
Menopause and ageing are often associated with vaginal laxity. As females age, the vagina can become looser, as the pelvic floor muscles and the vaginal walls become weaker due to a decrease in the hormone oestrogen. This essential hormone plays a big role in vaginal fitness, bladder control, and urethra health; oestrogen helps keep the muscles around the vagina and other pelvic organs strong and flexible — less oestrogen causes the pelvic floor muscles to weaken. One of the unfortunate side effects of reduced oestrogen may well be feeling like the vagina is less tight and less flexible.
The good news is that vaginal laxity can be treated — there are exercises, muscle toning treatment, and behavioural therapy to try out that will help to strengthen the pelvic floor muscles and get back to normal.
