Debunking Myths And Misconceptions About Vaginal Loosening
When it comes to your vagina and vulva, there are a lot of differing opinions about what is normal and what is not. There are many myths surrounding the female anatomy – and it can make taking care of your vaginal health difficult, especially if you don’t know what to believe! One of these myths that keep resurfacing – especially when it comes to women who are pregnant or have recently given birth – is the myth behind a loose vagina and medical procedures such as vaginal loosening. Although they are most certainly not related (and in fact, one of them isn’t really much of a reality at all!), it should be noted that both the condition of having a loose vagina and the procedure called vaginal loosening have a lot of information behind them that should be reviewed before jumping to any conclusions.
Is a “Loose Vagina” a Real Thing?
First off, you may find yourself wondering if the condition of having a loose vagina is actually a real thing or not. Many women have heard horror stories about having vaginal births leading to a loose vagina or having too many sexual partners leading to their vagina becoming “loose.” However, these are both myths – there is no risk of your vagina becoming “loose” if you have multiple sexual partners, and while it is true that the muscles can stretch a lot during childbirth, it will almost always go back to normal after a few weeks.
What is Vaginal Loosening?
Vaginal loosening, which is another name for a procedure that is called Intimate Renewal, is becoming more and more popular for women who are suffering from a condition known as Dyspareunia. This procedure is a wonderful choice for women who have been having difficulties enjoying sex due to pain or discomfort, and it can make a world of difference for those who associate sexual intimacy with negative feelings due to previous pain and discomfort. The procedure is minimally invasive and works to enlarge the vaginal opening to help make sexual intercourse (as well as other activities, such as using tampons) more comfortable. In a sense, it lives up to its nickname, which is vaginal loosening.
Is Vaginal Loosening Popular?
Many women around the globe deal with sexual dissatisfaction, painful sex, or fear of having sex due to pain and discomfort. These women also may find themselves unable to use tampons during their menstrual cycle without pain, as well, and this is due to the muscles in the vagina being too tight. Vaginal loosening is a great choice, and as it is becoming more and more popular due to its high success rate, many women are opting for this procedure.
Is Vaginal Loosening Safe?
Since the vaginal loosening treatment does involve a surgical procedure to help enlarge the vaginal opening, you may be wondering whether or not the procedure is actually safe. Vaginal loosening is a safe and effective procedure that can change the lives of the women who undergo this treatment.
Is Vaginal Loosening Successful?
The Intimate Renewal procedure carries with it a very high success rate – 100%!
Can Vaginal Loosening Make the Vagina “Too Loose?”
One big concern that many women have is that when they undergo a vaginal loosening procedure, it carries with it the potential to make their vagina “too loose,” and that they will run into the problem of not experiencing any sexual satisfaction. This is definitely not the case. Since the vagina is a muscle, it is designed to stretch and then move back into shape. By enlarging the vaginal opening only slightly, it can eliminate painful sex completely.
Is Recovery Long and Painful?
Another concern that many women have is that recovery following a vaginal loosening procedure will be long, drawn out, and painful. However, this isn’t the case, either. Recovery from a vaginal loosening does take some time, yes – but the downtime is actually quite minimal, and many women find that they are able to return to work and daily activities sooner than expected. The pain from the procedure is typically able to be managed by taking over-the-counter medications and using cold packs.
