Does natural remedy tighten vagina?
A woman’s body is naturally designed to undergo several changes with age and repeated trauma. But the vaginal laxity is not openly discussed as sagging skin and it often leads to many misconceptions. If you are unsure how to treat losing vaginal tightness, read on to find out how?
Losing elasticity to your vagina very normal.
And it could be due to many factors such as menopause, repeated trauma, giving birth, being overweight and even regular ageing (pelvic relaxation syndrome).
The laxity is not the only problem with losing vaginal tightness, there are more. Weak pelvic floor muscles can lead to other problems too, namely urinary incontinence, dryness and even pain during sexual intercourse.
But the taboo has made women all around the world to keep this their deepest darkest secret and battle in absolute silence without seeking medical advice. While turning to the internet may seem like a less embarrassing of an option, it sometimes can be misleading and dangerous
There are plenty of health hacks and tips that promise an easy way out for weak vaginal muscle. But which one is real? And which one is not?
Apple cider vinegar
We can agree Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) is suddenly a household magic portion that works for almost anything and everything. From weight loss concoction to pimple free facials to everything there is in between. But is it for real? Or simply an idea over-sold everywhere?
Vaginal douching technique is something that is not unusual. However lately the trend is to soak a tampon into diluted ACV prior to inserting into the vaginal canal and this in turn is promised to tighten the vaginal tract. Well health professionals are against this at all cost as it can be dangerous.
Generally, our vagina is equipped with a natural ‘cleaning’ method where the discharges self-douches every now and then, making additional douching unnecessary. Inserting vinegar into your vagina can alter the pH balance of the area and increase the risk of infection. And all these for no tangible benefits, especially in tightening the vagina.
Online discussions love amending your dietary intake and although there may be some health benefits, it is always very discrete and slow to show dramatic results.
Well taking in yoghurt daily improves probiotics and promotes ‘good’ bacteria in your vaginal canal. This makes the vagina resistant to infections. However, including yoghurt in excessive amount can upset the vaginal pH and cause other problems like overgrowth of vaginal normal flora.
Also, avoid foods high in citric acid (e.g., grapefruit, lemon, and raspberries) which can irritate the pelvic floor and worsen urinary incontinence symptoms.
Foods containing vitamin D (e.g., egg yolks and cheese) can reduce the risk of weakening the pelvic floor muscles.
Caffeinated beverages (e.g., coffee, tea, energy drinks) should be avoided as they can irritate the bladder, and lead to incontinence issues.
Whilst topping up your diet (with estrogen) can help maintain the integrity of the vulval mucosa and help lubricate the tissue, there is no evidence to suggest that the vaginal muscles can be tightened by this alone.
Pelvic floor exercises
No no! This does not mean hitting the gym for hours while your sweat trinkles down your forehead. While sitting, standing, even at work, you can easily perform mild form of pelvic floor exercise known as Kegel exercise.
You simply have to control your pelvic muscle contraction for 5 seconds and then relax for another 5 seconds. This alternating movement can improve your pelvic floor heath.
A course of bladder training – waiting longer between feeling the need to urinate and passing urine – can also help urinary incontinence, combined with pelvic floor exercises.
For some this may be difficult. You may not be able to contract your pelvic floor muscles adequately. Do not worry, there is a solution for you. Electromagnetic stimulation would be ideal as it involves you to simply sit back while the electromagnetic impulses signal the muscles to strengthen.
BTL EMSELLA looks like an ordinary comfortable chair but it is clearly much more. It utilized high frequency electromagnetic stimulation to be focused to your pelvic floor muscles and in turn this makes the muscle stronger and firmer. This session is performed in less than 30 minutes, but the effects go a long way. Besides incontinence, BTL EMSELLA also improves female sexual health, making ‘climax’ a far more possible reality for many out there.
Instead of opting for methods and ways with no proven results, women with loose vaginal muscle may benefit from vaginal rejuvenation therapies.
There are many available technologies out there for vaginal tightening but not all with no downtime. BTL ULTRA FEMME 360 is a world class device that not only delivers results but also with zero recovery period. Using radiofrequency technology, this stimulates collagen growth within the vaginal wall and increases tightness. This relieves symptoms of urinary incontinence and improves sexual fulfilment.
The best of all is that this treatment is completely pain-free and has no dangerous side effects.
A weakened vaginal muscle can put a lot of strain on everyday activities or romantic relationships, speak with a healthcare professional to determine what the right treatment option is for you.
