Procedures to Tighten the Vaginal Region
I had a baby nine months ago and I can't feel anything with sex.
I don't think you should rule out having another child since you are only 20 years old. Certainly, every woman feels that way one time or other when with an infant to care for. But we each experience changes in life and our attitudes and decisions change. You have another 20 years of fertility!
So don't do anything permanent regarding sterility. And if you do have you anatomy corrected it is very reasonable to get a c section instead of having a vaginal delivery in the future. Choose an obstetrician who will offer you this because some doctors don't give patients that option.

Open, loose vagina...any suggestions?
Thanks for your post with photos. You have several issues that need an evaluation by an experienced reconstructive and cosmetic vaginal surgeon, one who could determine the best treatment options for you.
Your pain at the entrance is likely due to poor healing following the delivery and can be repaired either as an in-office revision or at the time of a more extensive vaginoplasty.
You're only 20 and may want more kids in the future, so it is best to postpone a vaginoplasty till you're finished having children. Your pelvic floor muscle function needs assessed to see if its the source of your loss of sensation. I've seen dozens of women who complain of looseness and have never had vaginal deliveries. Many of these women have pelvic floor dysfunction and benefit from physical therapy. A surgery such a s a vaginoplasty would not be beneficial.
The open appearance concern can only be addressed surgically.
The IUD is great and does not contribute to looseness.
Please look at the link below for additional information on Cosmetic Gynecology and B&A photos to help you choose the right surgeon. We've seen many women from Las Vegas and offer a Travel Credit for those who fly in for surgery.
Best of luck,
Vaginoplasty is the gold standard for vaginal tightening
Your symptoms require an examination to check the status of your vaginal supports, but the ultimate solution to your concerns will involve vaginoplasty and possibly pelvic reconstructive surgery. Your IUD has nothing to do with this.
please be sure to find a surgeon with experience and I would also make sure that you are properly examined to rule out any other dysfunction such as bladder issues or other pelvic floor dysfunction before simply proceeding with a vaginally tightening procedure. A cosmetic gynecologist is probably best suited to help you
First let me say that I have never met a patient who complained of vaginal laxity who did not have a condition called vaginal prolapse. Vaginal prolapse usually manifests as a bulge or relaxation of the floor or ceiling of ones vagina. So if upon examination you display prolapse and you feel there is less friction during intercourse then you are a candidate for the surgery.
Secondly - is you are 9 months out from delivery and still have pain where you tore this needs to be evaluated. This is usually due to skin which has healed to aggressively which makes it tender when the penis puts pressure here. So choose a surgeon who understands normal anatomy and reconstructive pelvic surgery.
The surgeon is the most important things about determining whether you will have good results post operatively. You need to choose your surgeon wisely and I would encourage you to choose surgeon based upon their experience, expertise and great results. I would also encourage you to choose a surgeon who give you sometype of guarantee ( i.e. if you are not tight enough in the first 12 months they will repeat the surgery at no surgical fee). Choose a surgeon who has documented success rates ( this means they have written a paper on surgical success on their patients in his/her hands). Any surgeon can tell you they have a good success rate -----ask them to show you a study on their patients. Though no surgeon can guarantee a 100% success rate ( i.e. that you are happy with the results ) The good surgeons should be able to show you rates of 85% or better ( i.e. that 85% of their patients are happy with the results of vaginal rejuvenation 1 year after surgery). Remember This is one of the most important investments of your life an you want to minimize the chance of doing it twice ( thought there is always that possibility in any surgeons hands). Don't let location be a determinant of where you choose to get surgery.
When you state you can push the walls apart this allows be to believe you actually have prominent prolapse but and examination would be necessary to make that determination. Choose your surgeon wisely!!!
