If your vagina has become lax to the point that you have issues during intercourse, you may want to consider a vaginal tightening procedure. Once this tightening occurs, you and your partner should experience increased friction and greater sexual pleasure as a result. Through Connecticut vaginal laxity treatments, a qualified doctor could turn back the clock and restore your vagina to its pre-childbirth or younger state.

Causes of Vaginal Laxity

The more children a woman has given birth to vaginally, the more likely her vagina is to become lax. The birth of an especially large baby or a difficult delivery requiring forceps can exacerbate this problem.

However, while childbirth is the most frequent cause of vaginal laxity, it is not the only one. As women age, the loss of estrogen after menopause can wreak havoc on a woman’s body in many ways, including losses to skin firmness and tone. Women who have experienced vaginal trauma are also more vulnerable to vaginal laxity and may benefit from Connecticut vaginal laxity treatments.

Loss of Vaginal Muscle Tone

The loss of vaginal muscle tone due to childbirth or aging can affect women in other ways besides those dealing with intercourse. Some women suffering from vaginal laxity may experience issues with urinary incontinence. Surgical treatment for vaginal laxity can also aid in eradicating this issue.

What Does Vaginal Laxity Treatment Entail?

Vaginal laxity treatments may be performed surgically or non-surgically, depending on the needs and preferences of each patient. Surgical vaginal laxity treatments, such as vaginoplasty, are permanent.

Women who undergo these treatments should plan to take a week off work to recuperate and may have to wait two to three weeks before resuming strenuous exercise. Surgical treatments also require the woman to abstain from vaginal sex until healing is complete, which generally takes about six weeks.

Non-surgical treatments are not permanent and require annual or bi-annual sessions, but little downtime is involved. Some of these procedures can be finished in the span of a lunch break from work. There is also little restriction on sexual activity after these treatments, although for some therapies it is recommended that women wait a day or two before engaging in vaginal intercourse.

Laser or Radiofrequency Therapy

Both of these non-surgical methods work by heating the vaginal tissues, which results in additional collagen formation. The new collagen produced helps tighten the vagina, as well as improve muscle tone. Most women will need two to three sessions spaced two to four weeks apart.

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)

In this non-surgical procedures, a woman’s own blood is used to create PRP, which is then injected into the vaginal tissues. Platelets are full of growth factors and increase collagen production and blood flow once injected. The latter in particular helps boost sexual response.
