Healthy sexuality contributes to overall quality of
life. Even though admittedly not all sex involves a
vagina, for women and their partners the tightness of
the vagina plays a significant role. Before childbirth
the vagina is rarely ever too wide. The problem usually
occurs after vaginal childbirth, where the couple
experiences less friction.
A wider vagina after childbirth used to be a hidden
secret, however in this day and age it is becoming more
of a problem. Instead of having years of frustrating
sex, it may be better to have a consultation about
tightness, achieving the right fit,
increases sexual pleasure and
satisfaction. It also enhances body
confidence and feeling sexy
Non-surgical ways to achieve improvement are pelvic
muscle training. Even if your vagina were tight, being
able to contract the muscles at will increases the level
of pleasure. Exercising the pelvic muscles can be done
in the comfort of your home with devices like the
Intone® or Apex® or in the clinic with even more
advanced biofeedback training. Nice side effect is that
it will also improve urine and stool control and a lot
of people use the devices for that indication.
Few women have a very wide vagina before pregnancy
and vaginal childbirth, but it can definitely be a
curse. I have met women who are convinced their partners
left them because there was no sexual satisfaction since
their vagina was too wide. Now this may or may not be
the case and there is probably more to the story,
however a tighter vagina can contribute to a healthier
Even though some men, including some of my colleagues
are convinced the tighter the better, there is a too
tight. In other words be careful how tight is considered
tight, if you would like to have a partner fit in there.
It is important if you have a very large or on the other
hand quite small partner to make sure that the vagina
will be properly fitted.
Some women like to start all over and have their
vagina feel like new. They like to rid themselves of the
inhibition of a lax vagina and regain body confidence
and feel sexy again. Meeting new sex partners and
enjoying sex has a lot to do with confidence. There is
no need to feel insecure about your vagina, or suffer
for years after it has been stretched by vaginal births.
An outpatient surgical procedure can make the vagina
tighter. This can even be done without removing tissue,
or interfering with the nerve supply. Nerves are
important and sensation should be better, not
Before you think your vagina suddenly has become too
wide, make sure your partner achieves and holds a good
erection. Lack of sensation can also be caused by a lack
of a sustained or good erection. Obviously the treatment
for that is not tightening the vagina. For the latter a
tight vagina may actually be a big hurdle to take.
Is a tighter vagina the answer to happiness? If it
enables you to be more confident, have an improved body
image and achieve a better fit and sexual satisfaction,
it is certainly a step in the right direction.
Be happy about your vagina, improve your
self-confidence and enjoy your sex life.
