Laxity Of Vaginal Muscle

Vaginal laxity is a feeling of vaginal looseness. Vaginal laxity is caused by a steady reduction in estrogen, which causes muscle thinning. Several factors influence vaginal muscle laxity. Physical causes include pregnancy, vaginal childbirth, and menopause, as well as pathological causes, including hormone imbalance, forced menopause, and pelvic surgery. Vaginal laxity has been shown to harm sexual health by lowering self-esteem, libido, and sexual satisfaction. Maintaining laxity can be done with kegel exercises, laser rejuvenation therapy, or vaginoplasty surgery.
