Vaginal Tightening: How to Tighten Vaginal Walls

You know what they say, ‘growing old is inevitable’!  Well, if you’ve started to notice the odd grey hair here and there, you’re finding it more difficult to get up in the morning, or you’re simply not as agile as you once were, it’s probably time to embrace the concept that ‘age is but a number’.  These changes are part and parcel of the ageing process and as such are accepted as just another element of life.  However, we’re all guilty of trying to hide those telltale signs; a little bit of hair dye here, a dab of anti-wrinkle cream there.  But what about the physical changes that we are completely unprepared for, those which we cannot hide and that affect our emotional well-being?

How Sex Changes with Age

Something you may not have bargained for with ageing is a somewhat ‘looser’ downstairs department.  This ‘looseness’ and lack of muscle strength can lead to reduced sensations for both a woman, and her partner, during the most intimate of moments.  Without this strength and ‘squeeze-ability’, achieving an orgasm at all may be impossible. 

Over 1 in 2 menopausal women avoid sexual intimacy.


The importance of sex in a relationship should never be underestimated.  It allows a couple to connect on a deeper and more intimate level; both physically and emotionally.  Eliminating this from the equation will undoubtedly put a great deal of pressure and strain on any couple.  Vaginal ‘looseness’ should never be viewed as simply another by-product of age.  There’s no way of hiding it, but there are certainly ways to treat it.


What Causes Vaginal Looseness?

Does Pregnancy and Childbirth Cause Vaginal Looseness?

There are many other causation factors to consider when it comes to the loss of vaginal ‘tightness’.  Pregnancy and childbirth, in particular, have a profound impact on the body.  The pelvic floor, and indeed the vaginal wall, is stretched to the limit, especially during labour itself.  The muscles expand to assist your baby through the birthing canal, which in many cases (unsurprisingly) results in a ‘looser’ vagina. If you do have children, it is likely that you will have performed Kegel exercises throughout your pregnancy, and perhaps even beforehand.  However, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that you will undoubtedly be ‘looser’ now than you were prior to pregnancy and giving birth. 

40% of first-time mothers have no sexual relations for up to 2 years following childbirth.

Pregnant WomanMillions of new mums think that reduced sexual satisfaction is just something that comes with the territory, unaware of the measures that can be taken to treat it.  Some women are too embarrassed to broach the topic at all, making it even more difficult for them to find a solution.

Does the Menopause Cause Vaginal Looseness?

Other reasons for a ‘loose’ vagina include the menopause, weight gain and in some cases high impact sports.  The peri-menopause is a 5-10 year phase of gradually changing hormones. As you move through this time you may notice symptoms which suggest that your pelvic floor muscles need some attention. This could be bladder or bowel control issues, or feeling unsupported in the vagina, or a change in your enjoyment of sex. Whatever the cause, a lack of muscle strength, tone and a ‘looser’ vagina can have a profound impact on not only on a woman’s relationship, but her entire life.  In many cases it will leave her feeling anxious and depressed that she is no longer able to satisfy her partner sexually, thus inspiring a total lack of self confidence. If a couple has always enjoyed an active sex life and it has taken somewhat of a hit, this can be a devastating blow.  Well, here at Kegel8, we understand just how demoralising it can be, so we’re here to help you reclaim the sexual intimacy and confidence that you once had in abundance.

How to Tighten a Loose Vagina

So, you want to know how to tighten your vagina?  Well, now that we’ve established that you’re not alone, and that there is no longer a need to ‘suffer in silence’, let’s explore some of the ways in which this can be achieved, and reignite that spark in your relationship.  As with any other muscles, the vaginal walls and indeed the entire pelvic floor needs to be exercised frequently to retain strength and tone.  This can be done in a number of ways.  Independent Kegel exercises to tighten the vagina are being performed daily by women up and down the country.  This involves squeezing the muscles in the pelvic floor, lifting them inwards and upwards.  Although there are many benefits of Kegel exercises for women and  they are a proven and effective method for regaining tone, ‘tightness’, and strength. In many cases (when done independently) they are performed incorrectly, even putting undue pressure on the bladder. 1 in 2 women perform Kegel exercises incorrectly.  They can also inadvertently work the larger muscle groups such as the buttocks and stomach instead of those being targeted.

Strong vs Weak Pelvic Floor

Cosmetic Surgery for Vaginal Tightening & Other Procedures

Many women now opt for a ‘quick fix’ when it comes to their body issues.  With the soar in popularity of vaginal cosmetic surgery, this trend has now made its way into our most intimate areas.  There is much debate about the safety of vaginal cosmetic surgery and many medical professionals are concerned about the increase in demand for such procedures.   Any surgery brings with it certain risks, and it is unclear as to whether women are being fully informed of the specific dangers associated with vaginal cosmetic surgery prior to going ‘under the knife’.

Vaginal rejuvenation technologies claim to change the shape and look of the tissues with techniques like laser. There is also a growing trend for DIY vaginal rejuvenation using common household articles such as toothpaste and vinegar. Expert gynaecologists advise strongly against attempting to tighten your vagina through instruction of these internet fads and rumours. Instead, clinicians advise you to focus on the pelvic floor to quickly improve the tone and tightness of your vagina.

Comes complete with an easy exercise plan, created by Amanda Savage, to get results in 12 weeks!

Vaginal looseness and lack of vaginal sensation are usually closely linked. There aren’t many nerve endings inside the vagina and women feel “pressure” and “deep touch” more than light sensations. The sexual pleasure we experience comes from the rubbing and build-up of friction against the vaginal walls, which are layered with the pelvic floor muscles at the base and sides. These muscles need to have good tone and firmness to make the space feel tight and close to your partner, to activate the pleasure nerve endings and for you to be able to grip your partner (for more pleasure for both of you).

Our muscles will undoubtedly lose strength and firmness as we age, and it is not unusual to experience a lack of intimate sensation as a result. In addition, during the menopause, our bodies experience a significant drop in oestrogen levels, which can cause the vaginal lining to become drier and less elastic. However, it is possible to rebuild this strength/tone with regular pelvic floor exercise and regain that intimacy/closeness with our partners. Indeed, regular pelvic floor exercise will strengthen, tighten, and tone the muscles, as well as increase blood flow to the area, for increased vaginal sensation.

The included easy exercise guide has been created by Amanda Savage to strengthen the pelvic floor muscles that support the vagina for increased intimate sensation. The routine alternates between settings, first using a programme to make the muscle fibres repeatedly contract and release to encourage the muscle fibres to grow. On another setting there is no contraction of the muscles, but the stimulation triggers nerve activity and increased blood flow - this is a good time to relax and “tune in” to the sensations that you can receive from the vagina area and become more body aware again.

So why opt to use an electronic device rather than performing the exercises yourself?

Well, it is thought that many women push downwards during independent pelvic floor exercises, which, rather than strengthening the muscles, can lead to further damage. In addition, it can be difficult to locate and target the correct muscles, making exercise less effective. The Kegel8 Ultra 20 V2 Electronic Pelvic Floor Toner can be used to both exercise the pelvic floor muscles (to help them grow thicker and stronger) and bring more blood flow to the area to improve nerve sensitivity and general awareness. Removing the guesswork and essentially acting as a Sat-Nav for your pelvic floor muscles, it correctly targets and stimulates them. This builds strength and tone in a matter of weeks! With 20 clinically proven pelvic floor exercise programmes which vary in frequency, intensity and duration, the Ultra 20 is proven to treat a variety of different conditions, including vaginal looseness and a lack of intimate sensation. And, in addition to tailored programmes, the specific 12-week exercise plans created by Amanda Savage advise exactly how the device should be used to depending upon your specific concern/condition.
