People often talk about the vagina in terms of being “loose” or “stretched-out.” Many experts firmly disagree with this terminology because the vagina as an organ is made to be elastic and be able to stretch far more than one would expect. It is an organ that can stretch to accommodate different-sized external objects (penis or sex toys) or push out a six-pound baby. 

That said, it is important to note that over time, and with age and the inevitable decrease in estrogen levels in charge of the vaginal tissue quality, it might get a bit looser and require some treatments and help to make the vagina tighter. Mahima Spa Bradenton is the right place for these types of interventions, considering their high-quality equipment and experienced team of experts.

Vaginal Tissue ABCs

Woman Talking to Doctor

In order to bust certain myths about vaginal tissue elasticity, here are a few additional explanations about the terms “loose” or “tight” vagina and what that means in reality. 

As mentioned, vaginal tissue is highly elastic, and it can retrieve its primary status regardless of the amount of stretching required for certain processes. However, after some time, with age and childbirth, the tissue does get a bit looser, but it can never permanently stretch. 

People have often used the term “loose vagina” to shame women for changing sexual partners or engaging in many sexual relations. Regardless of how many times you have sex, your vaginal tissue can never stretch so much that it cannot go back to its primary shape. 

When talking about a “tight” vagina or vaginal tightness, it is important to underline that this condition might signal another concern we need to address in our reproductive system. For example, arousal makes the vaginal tissue relax naturally and physically prepares you for sex by lubricating and stretching the vagina. When the muscles remain tight, that either means you are not interested in the sexual encounter or there is an issue that needs your attention. 

When the vaginal muscles are tight, it makes sex very painful and impossible to enjoy and complete. Sometimes doctors consider this to be an obvious sign of a physical disorder called vaginismus, where pain occurs prior to and during sexual intercourse, but also when using a tampon, at the doctor’s office when they are using a speculum, etc. This disorder is treatable, but it needs to be examined and diagnosed by a medical professional first. 


As mentioned previously, two factors influence the elasticity of your vagina: your age and whether or not you had a child. Once again, regardless of how many times you engage in sexual relations, the elasticity of your vaginal tissue will not change. 

Women who give birth more than once might face loose vaginal muscles, but there are many approaches to tightening the vagina, so you do not need to worry about the permanency of your condition. Additionally, age greatly influences the vaginal tissue, so whether you give birth or not, the tissue will stretch lightly as you age. 

When women turn 40, they begin to notice certain changes in vaginal tightness caused by the estrogen level drop before the menopause era. The lack of estrogen can cause your vaginal tissue to be thinner, drier, less flexible, and less acidic. 

How to Tighten Your Vagina?

To make the vagina tighter, and strengthen those muscles, experts have developed different approaches and exercises women can do. The first recommendation would be pelvic floor exercises which are a great approach to strengthening the muscles of this particular area, as well as supporting the bladder, small intestine, uterus, and rectum health. 

Here are some symptoms to signal that you might have weak pelvic floor muscles:

  • Pain during sexual intercourse 
  • Pain in the pelvic area
  • Uncontrollable urine leakage 
  • Uncontrollable gas passing 
  • Continuous urge to urinate 

If you want to work on the tightening of the vagina seriously, here are some additional options you can use to help speed up the process:

  • Kegel exercises are used to strengthen the pelvic floor muscles. To perform them, you need to identify where those muscles are, pick an exercise position (most often lying on your back), tighten the muscles, hold for five seconds, and relax for five seconds. This should be repeated five times in a row. As you progress, make those five seconds ten. 
  • Pelvic tilt exercises strengthen the vaginal muscles, and they are very simple to do: you need to stand against a wall, with your back turned towards that wall. The knees need to be soft, and by pulling the belly button toward the spine, the back needs to be flat against the wall. Hold for four seconds and release, and repeat a few times per day. 
  • Vaginal cones are also an exercise used to work on the pelvic floor muscles, but this time the person needs to use a prop. A vaginal cone is a heavier, tampon-looking object inserted into the vagina and held by vaginal muscles for 15 minutes, two times a day. The cone’s weight can vary, but you can start lighter and then increase the weight. 
  • NMES, or neuromuscular electrical stimulation, helps with the strength of the vaginal muscles by using electric currents through the pelvic floor. The stimulation helps the pelvic floor muscles contract and relax. This can be done both by you and your doctor.
