Some women have a vagina that is too tight, and this makes intercourse very uncomfortable and undesirable. That’s because it often results in a lot of pain, and so intercourse is no longer enjoyable or pleasurable. In some cases even inserting a tampon can be unbearable. So what should women with this problem do? Help is available from the specialists in vaginal disorders at Fowler Gyn International.
What causes vaginal tightness?
Before a woman starts having intercourse, the vaginal opening may be naturally tight. It’s quite likely that this is because the vaginal covering or hymen has not been disturbed. As a result, even using tampons can be difficult or painful at this stage. However, intercourse will cause the hymen to tear, and this can be a very painful experience for many women. But even after this, many women may still find that their vagina is simply too tight, making intercourse very uncomfortable.
Some women who experience lower estrogen effect at the level of the vaginal mucosa can experience this problem. Lower vaginal tissue estrogen can occur for a number of reasons including genetics, lower ovarian reserve with age, borderline body weight or underweight, vigorous exercise, smoking, use of certain types of hormonal birth control and undergoing menopause.
As a result, the vagina shrinks in size, and also becomes drier than normal. When the vagina shrinks, it becomes shorter and narrower. This happens, because the tissues are not getting the estrogen they need to remain full and elastic.
How to relieve vaginal tightness
