Reasons, Symptoms & Diagnosis for Tightening the Vagina


Loose vagina is the stage wherein a woman might experience that the vagina is in an abnormal stage – not feeling tight as before and generally hanging loose.
Some major factors that contribute to a loose vagina are given below:-

Childbirth – This is one of the major reasons that help in loosening the vagina’s laxity. During child delivery, the vagina expands wide open to let the baby out through it, thus stretching beyond normal limits.

Accidental Injury – A traumatic injury is another major cause that loosens the vagina.

Age – This is a factor which comes as a woman ages and approaches the peri-menopausal stage. It is more evident as she finally enters the menopausal stage. The vagina’s estrogen levels start decreasing, thereby making the vaginal tissue drier, thinner, more flexible and less acidic.

Menopause – The body experiences changes that are detrimental to the elasticity of the vagina which loosens it considerably.
