Vaginal laxity affects millions of women worldwide. In fact, about 75% of women will struggle with it at some point, and if you’re one of them, it can help to know that you’re not alone. Laxity can affect many areas of life, and one of the most important is your intimate relationships. When laxity makes intercourse uncomfortable, it’s time to consider the vaginal rejuvenation treatment CO2LIFT by Lumisque.
How Does Vaginal Laxity Impact Comfort During Intercourse?
To fully understanding why laxity has the effect it does, it’s important to understand what has happened to your vagina.
The Healthy Vagina
Collagen and Tissues
Our skin, including skin in the vaginal area, gets its elasticity and strength primarily from a substance known as collagen. When there’s plenty of collagen, our skin is firm, tight, and can easily “bounce back” to normal after being stretched.
We have muscles in the vaginal area as well as skin, and these muscles are also very elastic. They’re made to pull and then immediately return to their place, strong and ready to go.
Laxity occurs when collagen stops giving our skin the firm, tight strength it used to have. This can be exacerbated when muscles also lose their tightness and sensitivity. The result is loose skin, muscles that don’t contract as they should, and a loss of natural lubrication and sensitivity.
Interfering With Intercourse
Many things go into making intercourse pleasant, and laxity can affect nearly all of them. Enjoyable intimate moments start with desire, which is driven in part by our libido. Laxity can interfere even at this point, decreasing desire and thus making intercourse more uncomfortable. Since laxity also causes a loss of lubrication, it becomes more difficult to feel aroused. That loss of lubrication also makes things drier, so intercourse itself can feel harsh when it should be amazing, and that affects everyone involved. And when skin and muscles aren’t strong and taut as they should be, it’s harder to feel the sensations that can give you a satisfying orgasm. Loose skin and loose muscles can even cause air to move in and out during intercourse, resulting in expulsion sounds that lower sexual satisfaction for everyone involved.
What Causes Laxity?
The causes of vaginal laxity vary from woman to woman, even if the end result causes the same frustration. The primary contributors to the problem, however, are age and childbirth.
Aging affects the skin everywhere on our bodies. As our bodies produce less collagen, the inner layer of the skin, or dermis, becomes thinner and less firm. This allows the outer layer, or epidermis, to fall and move around in ways it couldn’t when we were younger. Naturally, this change also affects vaginal tissues and can cause the skin there to sag. Another key aging issue is menopause. During this time of life, our production of estrogen drops dramatically, and estrogen is key to the healthy maintenance and repair of vaginal tissues.
Pregnancy and childbirth are amazing times, and they are also hard on our bodies. Whether you’ve had a natural birth or a cesarean section, either process will stretch the tissues of the vagina. Those stretched tissues may not snap back to their original place the way they should. The pelvic muscles are also stretched and can have trouble functioning properly later. Hormones are also a key issue during and after pregnancy. After a first pregnancy, many women, especially if they are in their 20s, have no problem recovering vaginal strength naturally in six months to a year. But with a second birth, this usually stops happening. If you give birth the first time a bit later in life, your skin and muscles may not be able to return to their former strength alone.
The Benefits of Vaginal Rejuvenation
More Satisfying Sex
When your skin and muscles are tight and firm, you’ll find intercourse more enjoyable at every point. Your libido is lifted, you have better sensation and lubrication, and sexual satisfaction is easier for you and your partner.
Better Texture and Lubrication
When you combat dryness, you’ll enjoy a more pleasant texture and greater lubrication at all times. This doesn’t just make for more comfortable intercourse: you’ll also notice greater comfort when exercising, wearing tight clothing, and sitting for extended periods.
Decreased Urinary Issues
Stress urinary incontinence happens when your bladder muscles have trouble doing their job during moments of stress, like a sneeze or cough. This condition can plague women after childbirth or as they age. It happens for all the same reasons as vaginal laxity, and vaginal rejuvenation can help with this, too.
