After giving birth, do you feel like your sex life is no longer what it was? This is not an uncommon thought. Childbirth can cause several changes to the vagina and could ultimately affect your sexual satisfaction. But, with vaginal rejuvenation, you can regain the look and feel of the vaginal tissues that you once had before giving birth!
Changes to the Vagina After Childbirth
During vaginal labor, the tissues stretch to allow the baby to pass through. The perineum, which is the skin between the vagina and the anus, may tear or be snipped by your doctor (called an episiotomy) to create more room for the baby.
As a result of the labor process, many women find that they have looser and drier vaginal tissues. The vagina may feel wider, which can reduce sensation for both partners during intercourse. Many women also have a weaker pelvic floor after giving birth, which can cause a handful of problems including stress urinary incontinence.
What is Vaginal Rejuvenation?
During vaginal rejuvenation, the tissues are tightened to improve strength and control. This may be done with a minimally invasive surgical procedure for a permanent solution or with nonsurgical methods like THERMIva®, which uses radiofrequency energy to restore the vaginal tissues. In either case, both the look and feel of the vaginal tissues are improved for a major confidence boost.
Vaginal rejuvenation can resolve many vaginal issues after childbirth that can impact your sex life, including:
Lost friction during intercourse
The feeling of a wide, loose vagina
Gas noises coming from the vagina during intercourse
Stress urinary incontinence
Scar tissue in the vaginal opening or perineum
Candidates for Vaginal Rejuvenation
It’s in your best interest to wait until you’re done having kids before undergoing surgical, permanent vaginal rejuvenation as this will ensure that the results of the procedure last for a long time. You can have non-surgical Thermiva rejuvenation between childbirth. We recommend that our patients let at least three to six months pass after giving birth before having vaginal rejuvenation for optimal results.
