Vaginal Tightening

 

Why is it an issue?

Vaginal Tightening

 

What is the pelvic floor?

 

The vagina itself is a muscular passage capable of great elasticity. It normally is less than an inch wide, but can dilate enough to accommodate a baby’s head during childbirth, and then return to its previous proportions. The muscles surrounding the vagina which help maintain this tone are the Levator Ani, made up of the pubococcygeus, puborectalis and the ileococcygeus, and the pelvic fascia, together forming the muscular partition known as the pelvic diaphragm or pelvic floor, through which the vagina passes.

What do the the pelvic floor muscles do?

 

  • The pelvic muscles prevent uncontrol leakage of urine by contracting when coughing, sneezing or straining.
  • The pelvic floor muscles support the organs of the abdomen while standing.
  • The pelvic floor muscles protect the pelvic organs from external damage.
  • The pelvic muscles keep the pelvic organs in their place.
  • The pelvic floor muscles help when urinating, having gases and bowel movements.
  • The pelvic muscles have a role while having sex.

 

Like for any other muscle, they need to be fit and properly toned to fulfill their functions.

 

Causes of a weak pelvic floor

 

  • Under use. Like for any other muscle the pelvic muscles need to be trained to work properly. Regular exercising of these muslces needs to be done all thoughtout life.
  • Pregnancy and giving birth.
  • Ageing decreases muscle tone.
  • Long term straining when being constipated, chronic cough or obesity.

 

Consequences of a weak pelvic floor

 

Weak plevic floor muscles may cause or worsen some conditions like:

 

  • Stress incontinence.
  • Urge incontinence.
  • Mixed urinary incontinence.
  • Fecal incontinence.
  • Pelvic organ prolapse.
  • A loss of vaginal sensivity.

 

These physical issues take a huge toll on women. Not only does socializing become a problem, having to stay in close vicinity of a bathroom at all times, but constant 'dribbling' of urine cause have a massive psychological impact. In addition there are issues with maintaining proper hygiene, increased chances of developing urinary tract infections, and giving off an offensive smell because of the urine. Another one of the biggest problems women with loose vaginas face is that not only does it make intercourse less pleasurable for them, but also for their partners. This reduces their quality of life together, often causing dissatisfaction and emotional discord between couples. Even culturally speaking, urban myths doom a woman with a loose vagina to be rumored promiscuous - but there is a simple solution - vaginal tightening. A loose vagina is not an insurmountable problem.

 

The role of vaginal tightening

 

Vaginal tightening techniques have been around for ages. Increased awareness and self empowerment among women has lead to more women learning how to tighten their vaginas properly, whether it is clenching exercises like Kegels, or using specialized equipment like vaginal cones and ben-wa balls. These also help in vaginal tightening by strengthening the pelvic floor muscles, which helps women to 'clench' better, and passively improves vaginal muscle tone as well. With time, not only can the 'grip' be gotten back, but urinary incontinence due to loose muscles can be cured, and more intense orgasms achieved. It's a completely resolvable matter- a loose vagina does not have to mean the end of the world, the end of your social life, or the end of your relationship.

 

Vaginal tightening treatments

 

As with any other muscles, the vaginal walls and in fact the entire pelvic floor needs to retain strength and tone what can be done in a number of different ways.

 

Vaginal tightening surgery

 

Vaginal tightening surgery, also known as Vaginoplasty rejuvenates a woman's vagina, tightening muscles and repairing soft tissues. Full recovery from a vaginal tightening surgery takes up to 6-8 weeks and you will have to stay away from strenuous activity and sports throughout the healing process. Prices generally start at $5,000 dollars and the vaginal tightening procedure has lots of possible side effects such as pain, discomfort, bleeding and swelling.

 

Vaginal tightening exercises - Kegels

 

Kegel exercises to get a tighter vagina are now being performed daily by thousands of women worldwide. Kegels require squeezing the pelvic muscles, lifting them inwards and upwards. Even tough there are many benefits of doing Kegel exercises and they are a proven to be an excellent method for regaining tone, vaginal tightness and strength, most of the time they are not performed the right way putting undue pressure on the abdomen and inadvertently work larger muscle groups such as the buttocks and stomach.

 

Vaginal tightening products

 

They are many vaginal tightening products made with 100% all natural herbal medicinal plants that have very strong astringent properlies as well as properties that will help keep a healthy vaginal balance. They come in such forms as creams, gels, pills, tablets, capsules, sticks, wands, oils, soaps, washes and contain at least one of the following herbal extracts that have been used for centuries in Asia; Manjakani (Quercus infectoria), Alum (Argilla Vitriolutum), the Woodfordia floribunda (Woodfordia fruticosa) and Kacip Fatimah (Labisia pumila).

Biofeedback for Vaginal tightening

 

Biofeedback for vaginal tightening requires to insert a sensor, also known as an electrode or vaginal probe into the vagina. The vaginal probe, connected to a visual and/or sound system, lets you see and/or hear the contraction while execising your pelvic floor muscles. Based the feedback given by the device, through the colour of the light and/or the intensity of the sound, you will know whether the muscular contraction is done properly or not.

 

The biofeedback allows you to correct the contraction while doing the exercises on your own, as well as allowing you to gradually increase the effort and duration. The biofeedback will help you get more and more confident knowing that you are correctly contracting your pelvic floor muscles and properly carrying out your exercices.

 

Pelvic floor stimulators for Vaginal tightening

 

Pelvic floor electrical stimulation is a very effective technique that uses low frequency electrical currents, transmitted by a small electronic probe inserted into the vagina to stimulate your pelvic floor muscles deep down, inducing contractions of the pelvic floor muscles and consequently tightening your vagina.

 

Repeated pelvic floor electrical stimulation will tighten your pelvic muscles and restore pelvic health and bladder control while increasing the blood flow, reducing infection risks and allowing for a healthy cell renewal.

 

Biofeedback and pelvic floor stimulator devices are an amazing alternative to manual exercises and a quick, safe and easy alternative to surgery. These pelvic floor toners will help you regain vaginal tightness without putting the body under undue stress and strain.

 

Even though manual pelvic floor exercises can be performed effectively for vaginal tightening, studies have shown that over 50% of women do not perform pelvic floor muscle contractions the right way and that manual pelvic floor exercises target only up to 40% of the pelvic floor muscles whereas using an electronic pelvic floor toner targets up to 90% of the muscles of the pelvic floor.
