As women age, they often begin to worry about whether they still have a tight vagina. Many things can cause loosening of the muscles in the vaginal walls, including childbirth, chronic constipation, and even repeated heavy lifting. Small tears in the tissue can cause the muscles to slacken over time. Fortunately, there are a few ways to tighten those muscles at home.
One of the best ways to tighten the pelvic muscles is to do Kegel exercises daily. It is helpful to learn the exercise while urinating to get a feel for which muscles to contract. While urinating, a woman can squeeze her muscles tight to stop the stream, hold for several seconds, and then let go. However, doctors recommend that these exercises normally be done on the floor with an empty bladder to avoid a risk of urinary tract infections. Thus, the proper method is to lie down in a comfortable position, squeeze the muscles, and hold for a count of 10. Release slowly and repeat up to ten times. Practice Kegel exercises three times a day for best results.
Another method is to use a tightening gel that promotes the production of natural collagen in the vaginal tissue. This has the effect of smoothing and strengthening loose muscles. Look for products that contain natural ingredients, such as organic herbs and vitamin E. By massaging the gel into the walls of the vagina before having sex, it’s possible to both increase tightness and enhance lubrication.
Positions That Increase The Sensation Of Tightness
If a woman lies with her legs close together during sex, she and her partner will both experience a tighter fit. Some recommended positions include the woman on the bottom with her legs lifted straight up and held together, the spooning position, and the woman on top with her legs together between her partner’s legs. The woman can also make a circle with her thumb and forefinger to provide an extra-tight entryway to her vagina.
All of these methods can help a woman improve her sex life and self-confidence. However, if these approaches don’t produce the desired results, the next step is to consult a doctor.
