Does your vagina “narrows” if you don’t have sex, and “soothes” if you have sex more often?

You haven’t had sex for a long time, but does it mean that your vagina narrows?

You have probably heard that if you haven’t had sex for a long time, your vagina will narrow and tighten, but the experts say something else.

Many people assume that the women that rarely have sex, have narrowed vaginas, and the women that have sex more often have soothed vaginas – but this is 100% incorrect” – says the gynecologist Jenifer Wider.

It is because the vaginal muscles are elastic.

They expand and get back in normal condition after every sexual action and after giving birth” – emphasize Wider.

Having this in mind, there are 2 situations in the life when the vagina changes the shape in a particular period of life.

After giving birth

Some studies have shown that the vaginal muscles need up to 6 months after giving birth to get back in normal size and shape” – explains Wider, but the point is that – the muscles get back in their primary condition.

As a result of aging

As the woman is aging, the hormone level decreases, which means that the vaginal walls are getting thinner and less elastic, so the muscles could soothe. The good news is that this could be solved thanks to the Kegel’s exercises, no matter how old is the woman”.

Conclusion: If you feel that your vagina narrows during the sex, that’s not because you haven’t had sex for a long time.

It is more possible that you are not excited enough and you need a longer foreplay” – added Wider.
