Vaginal laxity

What is vaginal laxity?

The sensation of vaginal laxity is manifested by a feeling of relaxation at the opening of the vagina. A feeling of vagina too wide

This is a common problem as about 50% of women are concerned. This problem is very difficult to discuss. It is therefore rarely mentioned.

The sensitivity in the mucous membranes is lower causing a decrease in the pleasure of both partners. intercourse due to excessive stretching that makes friction more difficult to feel. Inability to reach orgasm during intercourse is common.

What is the cause of vaginal laxity?

Laxity can be caused by ageing, childbirth, genetics and lifestyle.

Like the skin, the vaginal tissue is strong and flexible thanks to its constitution of collagen fibres. For women who give birth vaginally, the decrease in tightness and tenderness of this tissue, which is often a real concern due to possible excessive stretching, can damage collagen fibres.

Menopause may also be responsible for this vaginal laxity. Indeed, hormonal changes and more particularly the decline of estrogen transform tissues that lose their elasticity and become less tonic.

What are the treatments to regain vaginal sensations following vaginal laxity?

Perineal re-education helps to tone the muscles around the vagina. It is often recommended after a pregnancy. Ideally, muscular practice should be intensified as you get older. It is the same for the sexual zone. The muscles of the vagina lose power throughout life, which can lead to enlargement.
