Are There Any Herbal Remedies to Tighten Loose Vaginal Muscles?

I have five children,four of them normal deliveries.In two of those deliveries,the doctor said there was 'no need' for stitches,but that negligence later resulted in loose vaginal muscles and a marked lack of pleasure during penetration while having intercourse.Please advise.

Kegel exercises

At the moment, I can't think of any herbal remedies that can tighten the vaginal canal. However, exercises that strengthen the pelvic floor can help (Kegel exercises). You can do these exercises anywhere. Simply tighten the area as if you're trying to stop from urinating, hold for a few seconds, then release. Repeat several times. After a while, you may notice that you have better tone "down there".

Herbal Remedies

Hi 6463silvy,

I am unaware of any herbal of non-surgical techniques that will accomplish what I think you want.  There are, of course, many exercises of internal muscles that can help with tightening this area but that may not provide the result I think you'll need, which would most likely need to be achieved surgically.  You'll need a consult with a board-certified surgeon to assess your anatomy and to offer some suggestions as to how to address these issues.

I hope that this helps and good luck,

Dr. E

Herbal remedies to tighten loose vaginal muscles

Hi 6463silvy, I am not aware of any herbal remedies, topical medicines or medications that can be taken to tighten loose vaginal muscles. I would doubt the effectiveness of any medication that claims to produce this effect.

Loose vaginal muscles following multiple pregnancies

I would not necessarily label this treatment as negligent. If you sustained a second, third or fourth degree tear, you may require a perineoplasty and/or vaginoplasty to restore the integrity of the posterior vaginal wall as well as decrease the lumen of the vaginal introitus. You may want to try Kegel exercises to improve muscle tone or you may want to consider a vaginoplasty procedure. I am not aware of any herbal remedies that truly enhance vaginal muscle tone.
