Vaginal tightening treatment

Women are shy and fear to talk about the vagina. But your vagina is also a part of your body like your lips, ears, nose or leg. We fear being judged while speaking about this sensitive area. Women of this era are aware of sexual education but unaware of care needed for sexual organs and muscles surrounding it.

Everyone is mindful of aging and perceive it differently. Yet this care gets limited to the external appearance of facial skin. Aging is not happening only in the face and neck, it also happens in the intimate areas. There’s nothing wrong in having a narrow or wide vagina. But when it leads to other issues, vaginal tightening is an available choice. It is also a practical option for the modern woman, who is always busy and faces lifestyle changes. If that’s you, lets see how to care your vagina as you would care your hair or skin.

WHAT IS VAGINAL TIGHTENING?

 After menopause, or childbirth, or due to age; when the vagina loses the muscle tone it becomes wide. Vaginal tightening can help to prevent the discomfort as well as health conditions related to it. Most women find issues with it as the lubrication and elasticity lowers with age. But when it comes to issues like sexual dysfunction, vaginal atrophy, vaginal laxity, painful intercourse and stress incontinence, it can deteriorate the quality of life.

WHAT ARE THE ISSUES RELATED TO A LOOSE VAGINA?

Age and childbirth can cause the vaginal walls to become looser. On the other hand women who never gave birth can also experience the issue as hormone changes as you age.

Loss in muscle mass is common as you age, thus leading to weak muscles.

As you age, the levels of oestrogen in your body decrease. Because of less oestrogen, the tissues in your vulva become thin, pale, and less plump.

With lower oestrogen levels in your body, recurrent infection and urinary incontinence can become more frequent. This is because the tissues around the urethra also get thinner along with the tissue around the vulva, which makes you more prone to urinary tract infections(UTIs).

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?

Vaginal tightening not only tightens but also delivers many benefits for women to maintain a good quality and stress free life.
