    Loose Vagina (Vaginal Tightening)

    What is a loose vagina?

    A ‘loose vagina’, as the name suggests, is a condition where a woman may feel that her vagina is hanging abnormally loose and no longer feels as tight as before. 

    In certain cases, a vagina might not only lose its laxity but can also hang so loose that it can result in symptoms like loss of sensitivity, small but frequent urinary leakages and decrease in sexual pleasure.

    Formation of Loose Vagina (Vaginal Tightening)

    How does it form?

    A loose vagina can primarily be a result of two factors, which are:

    Age: A vagina might become slightly loose with ageing. As a woman enters the perimenopausal stage, the estrogen levels begin to drop, making the vaginal tissue thinner, drier, less acidic and more flexible. These changes may be more noticeable once a woman reaches the menopause stage. 

    Childbirth: This is one of the primary reasons for a vaginal muscle losing its laxity. During childbirth, the vaginal muscles are stretched to an extent so that the baby can be pushed out. Even though the muscles contract over a period of time, the elasticity of the vagina may not remain the same as before.

    Causes - Loose Vagina (Vaginal Tightening)

    • Ageing
    • Multiple childbirth
    • Traumatic injury
    • Certain health conditions
    • Menopause

    Symptoms - Loose Vagina (Vaginal Tightening)

    • Urinary leakage
    • Sexual discomfort
    • Looseness in the vagina
    • Vaginal itching and odor

    Diagnosis - Loose Vagina (Vaginal Tightening)

    A condition of loose vagina is usually found out by a woman herself. If you are diagnosed with the condition, you may sense a certain looseness in your vagina which is followed by a number of symptoms such as:

    • Loss of sensitivity
    • Decreased sexual pleasure
    • An abnormal sensation of something hanging loose and falling out of place
    • Urinary leakage while coughing, sneezing, while exerting physical pressure
    • Pelvic organ prolapse

    However, you should consider consulting a gynecologist to diagnose your condition with accuracy and get your loosened vagina treated accordingly.

    Self-diagnosis of Loose Vagina

    Severity - Vaginal Tightening

    This is the initial stage, where you may sense that your vagina is getting slightly loose. The vagina starts loosening when there is a drop in the estrogen levels as a woman enters the perimenopausal stage. This can also take place when a woman has gone through her first childbirth.

    Grade 1: Mild to moderate vaginal loosening

    Risks & Complications - Vaginal Tightening

    As with any surgical procedure, there are a number of risks and complications associated with a vaginal tightening surgery. Following are some of the risks and complications that are likely to take place after undergoing a vaginoplasty:

    • Bleeding
    • Infection of the wound and its surrounding areas
    • Scarring
    • Less sensitivity around the vagina on a temporary basis
    • Chronic dryness
    • Temporary numbness in and around the vagina
    • Mild pain and discomfort during sexual intercourse in the initial days following the vaginal tightening surgery

    • Prevention of Loose Vagina


      Prevention of Loose Vagina

      There are no proven ways to prevent a vagina from loosening. Vaginal loosening occurs as a result of unavoidable circumstances such as ageing or childbirth. However, there are a number of self-care measures that can help by not letting the condition proceed into a further stage. Some of them are:

      • Performing Kegel exercises to strengthen the pelvic muscles
      • Eating collagen boosting foods like berries and avocados
      • Maintaining body weight by performing exercises
      • Avoiding strenuous activities
      • Eating high-fiber foods and plenty of fluids to avoid constipation
      • Quit smoking to avoid coughing

      Myths & facts

      Myths and Facts about Loose Vagina

      Myth 1 : Having too much sex can loosen the vagina.

      Fact : No. Sex has no direct relationship with the feeling of ‘vagina looseness’ of a vagina. Just as a vagina stretches during a sexual intercourse, it also snaps back to its original shape after some time.


      Myth 2: Masturbation or the use of sex toys loosens a vagina.

      Fact: Certainly not. Masturbation or use of sex toys do not loosen a vagina.


      Myth 3: Regular use of tampons or menstrual cups loosens a vagina.

      Fact: No. Using tampons or menstrual cups do not necessarily end up in loosening your vagina.


      Myth 4: Avoiding sex can help you regain vaginal tightness.

      Fact: Definitely not. Abstaining from sexual activities does not tone the pelvic floor. Hence, avoiding sex cannot help you in regaining vaginal tightness.

    When to consult a gynecologist for Vaginal Tightening?

    Consult a cosmetic gynaecologist or general gynaecologist is the right approach for treating a condition of loosened vagina. Most women usually approach the doctor when they are experiencing symptoms like decreased sexual pleasure, loss of sensitivity, or looseness in the vagina. In certain cases, a woman may lose control over their urge to urinate due to the condition. Therefore, it is extremely important for a woman to consider seeking medical assistance as not only does this condition alter the appearance of the vagina, but its functions can also be compromised.

    Treatment Options & Cost - Vaginal Tightening

    • Laser/Radiofrequency Vaginal Tightening: This is a non-invasive treatment that uses laser energy or radiofrequency waves to cure vaginal laxity. During this procedure, the gynaecologist inserts a sanitized laser probe inside the vagina. After inserting the probe, the doctor projects laser energy from the probe on the vaginal tissues to stimulate the production of collagen. As a result, the vaginal muscles are tightened. This procedure is carried out in several sessions that take less than even 30 minutes.

    • Creams, gels and pills: There are a number of vaginal tightening creams, gels and pills that solely focus on tightening the vaginal wall. But, these items do not help in relieving the symptoms associated with a loose vagina such as urinary incontinence. Before using any of these, it is highly important for you to get consulted by the doctor. Applying gels or creams can cause infections and allergic reactions and may lead to complications that can be severe.  

    Insurance coverage - Vaginal Tightening

    Since people choose procedures such as vaginal rejuvenation for cosmetic reasons, most of the medical insurance plans in India do not cover its cost. As vaginal rejuvenation procedures are not considered as medical emergencies and are elective in nature, health insurance policies do not provide any coverage for the treatment. However, if you have any queries regarding any finance-related alternatives for the treatment, you can get in touch with us.

    Recovery Rate of Vaginal Tightening Surgery

    Recovery Rate - Vaginal Tightening
