At last, your baby is born. After delivery, you will realize that many things have changed, but perhaps one that is shocking is the transformation of your anatomy, but beyond those jeans that tighten you a bit, what happens to your vagina? We tell you how to regain vaginal strength to have orgasms, after having a child.
Tips to have vaginal strength to have orgasms
The vaginal muscles lose elasticity after childbirth and if you do not have the proper care, you will see that with each child, the vaginal distention will be increasing, something that does not depend only on giving birth; sedentary life, age and menopause are other factors that reduce muscle tone, and therefore, the ability to experience orgasms.
The first step is to start Kegel exercises, which can be done without problem a couple of days after delivery. However, the ideal for all women, regardless of their age, whether or not they have had children, whether they have had caesarean sections or have given birth naturally, is to attend a perineal reeducation course.
Perineal reeducation consists of a series of exercises guided by specialists that monitor the recovery of the perineal muscles. Activities include Kegel exercises, electrostimulation, massage therapy, and the use of sex toys such as Chinese balls (you must hold them only with the strength of your vaginal and perineal muscles). These exercises will help you to have vaginal strength to have orgasms.
These types of courses are taught by teams of specialists from various disciplines: gynecologists, physiotherapists or kinesiologists (specialists in rehabilitating muscles through movement), psychologists or psychiatrists, neurologists and sex therapists.
The results of the perineal reeducation courses are evident after several months, depending on your discipline and also the response of your own body. Although, advances in medical science can help us tighten and tone the vaginal canal in a short time.
First, consider that to make the decision to have surgery, it is not enough that one good day your partner simply tells you: “You no longer press the same!”. If so, it is best to thank them for participating and finding a partner with more sexual imagination. Why? Mainly because it is a high risk surgery.

The procedure to recover the lost tightness is called vaginoplasty, lifting or vaginal tightening; It was invented in 1956 by French gynecologist George Burou, who used it to reassign the gender of men who wanted to become women.
In the 1960s, surgery began to be used in cases of vaginitis or congenital malformations, such as vaginal agenesis –the incomplete development of the vagina–, and until the late 1990s it became cosmetic surgery.
Vaginoplasty can be performed with a scalpel or laser, in both cases, the muscles around the vagina are closed, to make the vaginal walls more narrow. Likewise, the sutures in both cases are made with surgical thread and this one falls off once the healing of the wounds is complete, that is, after approximately one month.
The process lasts just two hours, is carried out under general anesthesia, requires only one day of hospitalization and in seven days, the patient is ready to resume her daily activities, as long as they do not involve high physical effort. Full recovery takes four to eight weeks, however, it is recommended to wait up to twelve to resume sexual life.
Like all cosmetic surgery, the price of it depends on the clinic and the country where it is performed, however, in Mexico and the United States the cost is higher than 52 thousand pesos.
Do I operate the no?
Gynecologists from the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologist, strongly criticize this procedure, point out that it is an unnecessary surgery, that its benefits can be obtained with exercises to strengthen the perineal area, in addition to its effect is temporary, since with Over time, the vagina stretches again if the muscles are not exercised.
In medical terms, few gynecologists favor this procedure in women who only want to improve their sexual life, since the risks include, in addition to bleeding and infection: temporary numbness, decreased vaginal sensitivity, and chronic cystitis. It is also important to understand that sexual satisfaction should not focus solely on penetration. This depends more on the brain than on the genitals.
