What Does Vaginal Looseness Mean?

Vagina Goes Loose, Pleasure You Lose
The inside of a woman's vagina - muscles and tissues

 The pelvic floor consists of a group of muscles, the pubococcygeous or PC for short, that support a lot of organs (the urethra, bladder, bowel and vagina in women). We must not confuse it with the vaginal muscle, which is responsible for clenching and relaxing the vaginal walls. The vaginal muscle, like any other muscle in your body, can become impaired in time. Try to picture it like an accordion, when there is no need to make room for guests (you got it, I mean sexual intercourse) or it doesn’t have to see someone to the door (birth giving), the accordion is closed. The vaginal tissues are tightly folded and loosen up only when they have to. Sometimes, though, unwanted flabbiness may occur, along with the annoying aftermath. But what may bring about a loose pussy? How would that affect your life? Is it an untreatable condition? What can you do to prevent, stall or reverse this situation?

 Let’s take one question at a time.

 Vaginal looseness may be a result of several causes. The first one is childbirth. As the baby grows inside the woman’s uterus the vaginal wall expands. After delivery, the vagina should return to its prior shape within approximately six months. When you give labor at an older age, your vaginal elasticity might take longer to gain back. In cases of episiotomy, though, (a surgical procedure when the vaginal wall has to be torn to assist in childbirth, it is practiced when the baby gets stuck and delivery is impossible) the vagina might not recover fully. 



 Another, and definitely inevitable, factor of vaginal looseness is aging. As you grow older your body starts to lose its tone, your skin becomes saggy and your muscles start to lose their tautness. The same happens to your vaginal muscle. Some medical conditions that are accompanied by hormonal imbalance, obesity, heavy weight lifting, stress urinary incontinence, urethra injuries or pelvic surgery are also common reasons for permanent looseness of the vagina.



Vaginal looseness may cause negative feelings to the woman
A flabby vagina comes with several side effects. The vaginal muscle is manufactured to loosen up to assist in childbirth and sexual intercourse. This means that when you’re aroused enough and waiting for a love stick to get inside you, the vaginal walls open up to make more room for your partner’s hornycorn. Now, imagine an already saggy vagina to get turned on. Sex becomes unsatisfying and pleasure hard to reach. The same goes for your partner. A flabby vagina doesn’t provide you with the resistance and friction you both need to feel pleased and finally reach climax. To put is in short, when a puss goes loose, then pleasure goes puff!


 Another, and definitely more embarrassing, disadvantage of vaginal looseness is urinary incontinence. Not all types of incontinence are related to vaginal looseness. Basically, it’s urinary stress incontinence that occurs when there is poor pelvic floor control, therefore urine leakage is unavoidable. When the PC muscles are unable to control the passage of urine, activities that increase intra-abdominal pressure (like coughing, sneezing, or bearing down) lead to urine leakage.



 It's not the end of the world, though. There are different methods to treat a vagina that starts losing its tone. The main idea is to try and strengthen your PC muscle, the one in charge of supporting your vagina along with other important organs down there. Kegels, kegel weights, Ben Wa balls, vaginal cones, yoni eggs, electrical stimulation, tightening gels, herbs and supplements offer you a great variety of solutions to choose from. Kegels are exercises performed by tensing and loosening your PC muscles for a certain amount of seconds each time. Kegel weights, Ben Wa balls, vaginal cones and yoni eggs work as supplementary equipment to make kegels more efficient. Electrical stimulation is a procedure performed at a urologist’s office. During each session electrical current is applied to your vagina in order to clench and loosen your muscles, providing a workout similar to kegels but without you putting any effort to it. Tightening gels are applied inside your vagina and are promised to work like most firming creams. Whereas, herbs and supplements are taken by mouth and promise to provide your body with the nutrients it needs to get the job done from the inside. In another article we are going to discuss each solution more thoroughly and get a closer look at their pros and cons.


 How To Tell If Your Vagina Went Loose

 There are some simple tests you can do to determine whether your vagina started to lose its tone or not. First, ask yourself those questions:

· Do you experience any urine leakage?

· Do you feel an unexpected urge to pee and right after you dispose of a large amount of urine?

· Does your vagina not close back when you’re not aroused?

· Do you need to insert bigger objects to your vagina to get you turned on?

· Do you find it more difficult to reach climax?

· Is it more difficult to please your partner through penetrative sex?


 If you answered yes to any of the above, then do the following:

· Try to put 3 of your fingers into your vagina at the same time. If you feel little or no resistance, it could be a sign of looseness.

· Try to grip your index with your vagina. If that troubles you, it could also be a sign of looseness.


 Myths Busted!

 "Too much sex can make me loose"

 The vaginal muscles have great elasticity. They are designed to double their width during intercourse and labor. When the woman is aroused, the vaginal walls start to expand and the cervix pulls up in order to welcome the penis in the vagina. Right after sex, when the woman is no longer stimulated, the vagina tightens returning to its prior state. It is a myth that having sex too often can damage your elasticity. Aging and hormonal imbalance are the ones responsible for losing your muscle tone.



 "Childbirth will loosen my vagina"

 As we’ve said before, the vagina is made of greatly elastic tissues. During pregnancy it stretches enough to provide the baby with space to grow. In labor, the vagina opens up to help the baby get out, but within 6 months after giving birth it should return to its former size. The truth is that your elasticity will start to wear off as you grow older, so multiple childbirths combined with aging can cause looseness.


 All in all

 Intercourse and childbirth temporarily stretch the vagina, but it recovers soon after (well, in case of giving birth 6 months later) and they are not something to worry about. Permanent looseness comes as a consequence of aging, menopause and hormonal imbalance, obesity and surgery or injuries in the pelvic area. In each case, there are several recommended treatments, but progress and effectiveness depends on the woman’s special traits and needs, because every body is unique and not all treatments apply to all of us. 


 Treatments

 Vaginal looseness can become a pain in the ass (well, technically very close to it). There are a few measures you can take to fight it. The first thing you should do is consult your doctor to help you determine whether you suffer from vaginal looseness or it’s just in your head. Next, together you will decide which treatment is the best for you. Below you can check on the treatments available.


 Kegel exercises:

 They are the easiest and most inexpensive solution. Kegels are easily performed anywhere, anytime even when you‘re doing other activities like cooking, shopping or working. They work by tensing and releasing your pelvic floor muscles for 5-10’’, repeating 3 sets of 10 reps 3 times a day. For more information on kegels click here.

 Yoga and pilates: 

 These forms of exercise target your core strength. By building a strong and steady core your body can hold your pelvic floor muscles tighter. This means better control of your vagina, bladder and bowel.




Silicone kegel balls
 Vaginal weights, Ben Wa balls: 
 Incorporating vaginal weights, kegel weights and ben wa balls to your kegel exercising program, you can boost the effectiveness of the exercise (read how). Kegels alone offer a great workout for your PC muscles, but adding resistance will make you put more effort to the exercise, therefore gaining more strength and better control over them.

 Pelvic-toning devices: 

 The pelvic toner (AKA Kegel exerciser, pelvic floor exerciser, pelvic floor toner, pelvic floor muscle toner, pelvic floor stimulator or pelvic device,) is a medical or pseudo-medical device for assisting in PC muscle toning. It is inserted to the vagina and you must clench it using your PC muscles, it works with the same mechanism you use in kegels.


 Pelvic floor physiotherapy:

 Applied by trained physiotherapists, the sessions are personal, based on the patients specific needs. The physiotherapist applies manual techniques and organizes a personal exercise program. You may get lifestyle program changes as well. Biofeedback and electrical muscle stimulation may also be used.


 Tightening gels: 

 They are products used topically and work like most firming creams. They help regain your lost elasticity and offer the lubrication you need (especially for older women who experience vaginal dryness)

 Vaginoplasty: 

 It is reconstructive surgery. The plastic surgeon rearranges the vagina to help it go back to its prior shape and size.

 Vaginal rejuvenation: 
 This is non-reconstructive surgery. The doctor removes external tissues and tightens the supportive structures of the vulvovaginal complex. There are potential risks in this case though, such as low clitoral and genital sensation. Keep in mind that complications, such as scarring, infection and tissue adhesions may occur as well.

 Healthy diet - Supplements: 

 A balanced diet provides your body with all the nutrients it needs for your muscles’ proper growth and repair. There are specific supplements on the market that claim to help.

 Electrical muscle stimulation: 

 It is a procedure where a probe is inserted to the vagina and then electrical currency is applied. The currency trains the perineal muscles pain-free and effortlessly. 


biofeedback device, the probe is inserted to the vagina and the wearer contracts their pelvic floor muscles around it
Biofeedback: 

A biofeedback session is about placing an electrode into the vagina, pretty much like in electrical muscle stimulation. The vaginal probe is connected to a visual system which allows the user to see the contraction. There are also devices with sound signals and others that combine both visual and sound systems. The user is informed whether they’re doing the muscle contraction right or not by the color of the light or the intensity of the sound. The biofeedback's major benefit is that it helps the user correct the contraction while doing their exercises. It also lets them increase the effort and duration of the exercise gradually.

 If you suspect you might be experiencing vaginal looseness, it's advisable that you consult your doctor before turning to any of the above treatments. Better safe than sorry applies here as well. My article is just a demonstration of the solutions available, I am not a doctor and I would never give you advice that would put your health at risk. Thanks for reading!
