3 Tips for a Healthier Vagina

As you grow older, so does your vagina. Aging and childbirth can take their toll, but there are many ways to delay the aging process and keep your vagina healthy.

Vaginal Douching

Vaginal douching is used to mask the odors coming from the vagina. Although many experts have warned us of the negative effects of a vaginal douche, it is still a common enough practice used by one in every four women in the United States, aged between 15 to 44 years old.

Because the vagina is a self-cleaning organ, douching is an unnecessary practice. In fact, it can only make things worse because it upsets the natural balance of the vagina’s beneficial bacteria and pH level. Instead of making it cleaner, it actually creates an environment that makes it easier for infections to develop in that area.

So if you are getting concerned over the strong or unpleasant odor of your vagina, go see a gynecologist. A douche will only mask the odor and will not cure the problem that is causing it.

Doing Kegel Exercises

Doing these clench-and-release exercises provides lots of benefits: it can strengthen your pelvic floor muscles, improve bladder control, promote perineal healing after giving birth, and decrease your chances of urinary incontinence. So make sure to include plenty of kegel exercises the next time you’re working out.

Tightening the Vagina

If you have given birth to multiple children, your pelvic muscles begin to lose some of its elasticity. When the vagina becomes too loose, this could prevent you from experiencing orgasm and could negatively impact your sex life.

Vaginal loosening is a fact of life as you grow old, but that does not mean you can’t do anything about it. Here at MedBar, we offer a vaginal rejuvenation surgery called ThermiVa, which restores the vagina to its original state using thermal technology.

It is a minimally invasive surgery wherein a thermal wand is inserted gently into the vagina and creates warmth along the vaginal walls. This process stimulates collagen growth and tightens the vaginal canal.

Keeping your vagina happy and healthy is important for your well-being. Allow us to help you achieve this by making an appointment with us!
