The vagina is one of the most elastic parts of the body. This means that it can stretch to accommodate things that come in when an examination is done or when having intercourse and come out like the birth of a baby. Because the vagina is elastic, the vagina is able to return to its previous shape.
The vagina may become a little loose due to factors such as age or the birth of a baby, but overall, the muscles in the vagina are able to expand and contract again. Women who have had more than one vaginal birth are more likely to experience vaginal muscle weakness. However, aging can cause your vagina to stretch a to certain extend, regardless of whether you’ve had children.
Changes in vaginal elasticity begin at the age of 40. This is due to the level of the hormone estrogen that begins to be affected when a woman enters the perimenopause stage. Lack of estrogen levels means your vaginal tissue will be thinner, drier, less acidic and less stretchy. These changes may become more pronounced when reaching menopause. Treatments to improve the elasticity of the vagina include pelvic exercises, magnetic chairs, PRP shots and laser treatments.
