Vaginal Tone After Childbirth:

Due to childbirth, your vagina may lose its tone and strength. This is because the muscles along the vaginal canal expand to make room for the baby. This results in the development of several issues like urinary incontinence, vaginal dryness, sagging skin and others.

Vaginal tightening can help reduce incontinence and the number of infections from things like bacterial vaginosis. Treatments for vaginal tightening may also make your sex life better. By strengthening your pelvic floor and incorporating additional treatments into your regime can help limit vaginal atrophy – where the vaginal walls become dry and irritated – improve lubrication and increase sexual pleasure.

Postpartum Vaginal Tightening:

If you have just given birth and want your vagina to regain its original tightness, then you can do any of the following:

–        Exercise:

Certain exercises can help strengthen your pelvic muscles. They can assist you to make the vagina tight again.

–        Yoga:

Including yoga in your daily routine can help restore the tightness of your vaginal muscles. It can also help reduce urinary incontinence and increase sexual pleasure.

You must use postures that target the pelvic area, such as the pelvic thrust.

–        Diet:

–        Improving your diet with a focus on muscle-building food like fish can tighten your vaginas. Fruits high in oestrogens, like apples and berries, can also help tone the pelvic floor.

–        Surgical Methods:

Surgical methods can greatly help in postpartum vaginal tightening. One such method is vaginoplasty.

Vaginoplasty: In vaginoplasty, a portion of tissue from within the vagina is surgically removed, and the incisions are then stitched together to tighten the vaginal canal.

This procedure constricts and repairs the vaginal canal thus regaining its sexual functions.

–        Non-Surgical Methods:

Non-surgical methods can also tighten vaginas after childbirth. Below are the two most popular non-surgical methods for toning the pelvic area:

CO2 Laser: The laser heats the top tissue layers which causes the lower tissue layers to produce more collagen as a result. The skin then tightens and firms up with this CO2 laser treatment.

Radio frequency: The tissue is heated by concentrated frequency waves, causing the vaginal skin to tighten effectively. The electromagnetic waves used to heat the vaginal tissues. This Causes Blood To flow into the tissues thereby increasing collagen formation.

Medical Treatment for Vaginal Tightening:

If you want to regain the tightness of your vagina you should consult a gynaecologist. They will give you a proper exercise and diet regime for you to follow. These steps will help you naturally improve your vaginal tightness.

However, if you want medical treatments for your vagina your doctor will advise you to take either a surgical or non-surgical procedure.
