Vaginal loosening syndrome: what treatment?

What is vaginal loosening? 

Vaginal loosening is characterized by laxity in the tissues at the vaginal entrance associated with a lack of tone that decreases the sensations during sexual intercourse.

The vaginal loosening syndrome is designated by an important alteration in the shape of the vagina, where the muscles of the perineum lose their strength. This leads to an internal and external increase in the vaginal diameter and a thinning of its walls.

As a result, laxity significantly reduces a woman's sexual desire and satisfaction, which affects her marital life and subsequently her self-confidence.

What causes vaginal laxity? 

One of the main causes of laxity is vaginal delivery, which causes the skin to stretch. Thus, laxity leads to a decrease in the hydration of the vaginal mucosa due to the loss of lubrication of the vagina.

Aging and menopause can also cause vaginal loosening as they decrease sensitivity during sexual intercourse.

On the other hand, it should be noted that multiple deliveries and excessive sexual intercourse are the cause of vaginal laxity. The constant rubbing of this sensitive area and the enlargement of the area promote vulvar gaping. 

How can vulvar gaping be treated? 

Fortunately, today there are highly developed methods and techniques to deal with vaginal looseness syndrome and to ensure a complete re-education and tightening of the female reproductive system.

Vaginal rejuvenation

Vaginal rejuvenation is performed by laser. It restores the vaginal mucosa and treats its aging. This treatment stimulates the regeneration of the vaginal tissues through CO2 fractional laser sessions, which leads to a retraction and toning of the vulva. Laser rejuvenation is a quick therapy that does not require incisions and does not cause bleeding.

Quadripolar Radiofrequency

This technique consists of stimulating the natural production of collagen and the renewal of the cells that make up the vaginal tissue. This incentive, combined with the thermal effect caused by the anterior wall of the vagina, solidifies the tissue that connects the vagina with the urinary system. With this technique, the tightening of the vaginal cavity is guaranteed. 

Platelet-rich plasma injection (PRP)

This technique consists of taking blood from the patient's arm and storing the plasma (PRP). The surgeon reinjects the solution into the peri-urethral area and under the clitoris, which helps to improve vaginal health and stimulate the sensation of orgasm.

Perineal Rehabilitation 

Vaginal delivery directly affects the shape and tissues of the vagina and causes relaxation of this tubular organ. Re-education of the perineum is necessary so that the distended vaginal walls regain their tone and their ability to contract. Postpartum women are advised to perform pelvic floor exercises with the help of a physiotherapist.

Surgical vaginoplasty

Vaginoplasty is a surgical procedure, also known as a "vaginal lift" that aims to minimize the diameter of the vagina under the knife and strengthen the perineal muscles. This invasive surgery is recommended in severe cases and gives good results. 

The benefits of vaginal slackening treatment 

Several clinical studies show that treatment of vaginal laxity improves a couple's intimate life, leading to the resumption of sexual pleasure during intercourse. A tightened vaginal canal allows for orgasm as a result of the sensitivity of the vagina during the sexual act.
