Strong, healthy vaginal muscles are essential for women of all ages. Like every other muscle in the body, the vaginal muscles need tone and vitality to stay strong and healthy. And, just like every other muscle in the body, the vaginal muscles lose this tone and vitality if not cared for properly. If left untreated, weakened vaginal muscles make women vulnerable to a range of personal and gynecological problems, including vaginal wall prolapse and loss of sexual satisfaction.
The good news is; strengthening and tightening the muscles in this area can help protect you from these common problems, and it’s never too late to start.
What causes weakening of the vaginal muscles?
There are many factors which can cause changes in your vaginal muscles, but the most common are childbirth and hormonal changes caused by the natural aging process, particularly around the menopause.
Unless you give birth by Caesarean-section, it is likely that your vagina will change size slightly after childbirth. This is caused by a loss of muscle tone in the vaginal wall.
As women approach menopause, the body’s natural levels of the female sex hormone estrogen start to decline. This hormonal change can lead to changes and loss of tone in the vaginal tissue.
How can I maintain strong, healthy vaginal muscles?
Many women practice Kegel exercises to strengthen the pelvic floor area and regain muscle tone in the vaginal wall. While these exercises can be useful for regaining tone and increasing blood flow to this area, they need to be carried out extremely regularly to be effective – Dr. Kegel himself recommended 300 squeezes every day! – and they are of no benefit at all if practiced incorrectly.
Curcuma Comosa – the perfect alternative to Kegel exercises?
