What is Vaginal Laxity?
Vaginal laxity, or looseness, is a condition in which the vaginal walls lose flexibility and strength. Like the body’s skin, the vaginal walls are made up of fibrous material and collagen. When overstretching occurs, as it can during childbirth, the collagen fibers in the vaginal walls become damaged. As a result, you may also experience reduced sexual satisfaction, decreased desire and a loss of sexual arousal. This is the case because laxity leads to a loss of lubrication in the vaginal area.
What are the Causes of Vaginal Laxity?
There are multiple causes of laxity issues. The most common include:
- Vaginal childbirth or multiple vaginal births
- Age and menopause
- Excessive sexual activity
- Trauma to the vagina
- Genetic disorders
Research indicates that a majority of women deal with laxity issues at some point in their lives. Luckily, there are non-surgical treatment options that can restore strength and flexibility to the vaginal walls.
