Women’s sexual health is something that isn’t openly discussed but this is about to change.
After childbirth a women’s sexual function can change. Most women have just accepted this as a fact but it doesn’t need to be the case. Vaginal laxity is an extremely common medical condition caused by ageing, childbirth, genetics and lifestyle. Millions of women suffer silently with vaginal laxity and the resulting loss of sexual sensation and satisfaction.
- Do tampons not feel snug anymore or do they feel like they are falling out?
- Does your vagina feel different during intercourse?
- Have you noticed a decrease in physical sensation during intercourse?
- Is orgasm more difficult to achieve than it used to be?
Vaginal laxity is the number one concern amongst women post birth of children. This is more concerning to them than stretch marks, weight gain or incontinence. Vaginal childbirth overstretches the vaginal opening leading to a feeling of ‘looseness’, diminished sensation during sexual intercourse and a reduction in sexual satisfaction. This in turn often leads to a decrease in self esteem and can also impact on relationships between partners.
Until now there was not a safe nor effective way to treat vaginal laxity.
