Is My Vagina Normal?

It’s not uncommon to ask. Just as every woman is unique, so is their vagina. Treatment is often needed when vaginal or labial shape causes disruption in daily activities or intimacy.

Changes in the appearance and sensation of the vagina can occur over time and can be related to hormonal changes as well as pregnancy and age. To address vaginal looseness, often following pregnancy, vaginal rejuvenation can be performed to tighten the vagina. Vaginal rejuvenation results in enhanced sensation with intercourse and restoration of the appearance of the opening of the vagina.

Women of all ages can have enlarged labia causing discomfort with exercise, intercourse or affecting their overall sexuality. Labiaplasty surgery is done to reduce the size and appearance of the labia.

Is Vaginal Rejuvenation or Labiaplasty for Me?

These surgeries address two main issues:

The first is to relieve symptoms related to discomfort when exercising, under normal day-to-day activity, or a lack of stimulation during sexual activity.

The other reason women seek the procedure is because they aren’t comfortable with their vagina’s appearance and are seeking a simple cosmetic solution.
