It’s such a wonder when you think about how flexible a woman’s vagina is. Think about it: It can accommodate different sizes of penis. There’s also the fact that such a small hole can become a passageway for some six-pound baby.
Some women, though, may worry about the size of their lady parts, especially if they have regular sexual intercourse. So does regular sex really stretch out the vagina permanently? Fortunately, gynecologists have provided the answer to this hotly-debated question. The answer? Yes and No.
Women tend to feel insecure about the tightness of their vagina.
This is especially true for those women who have regular sex.
But according to experts, regular sex does not have an effect on the vagina’s size. Nor the size of the male organ.
The “vag” is an extremely resilient and flexible organ, gynecologists said. It may stretch to accommodate different sizes of manhood, but naturally, it bounces back to its original size. However, there’s an exception for a woman who has had sex for the first time. Michelle Metz, M.D. explained to Women’s Health on this matter:
“Generally a band of tissue called the hymen will break or tear which can sometimes lead to mild bleeding and the vaginal opening increases in size.”
Women can also be shamed a lot for having “loose” vagina. Some men would ridicule women who are no longer that “tight.” But Dr. Metz explained that sex alone cannot permanently stretch the organ and it gets back to the original size after intimacy is over.
Sex may not have a permanent effect on the flexibility of the lady bits, but experts say that there are other factors that do. Dr. Clare Morrison explained that having multiple children can affect the tightness.
“Admittedly, giving birth to multiple children can have somewhat of an effect. The vaginal opening will stretch with childbirth, but will gradually shrink back again to some extent. The degree to which it returns to ‘normal’ depends on genetic factors, in just the same way that women vary in how prone they are to stretch marks or scarring.”
If you’re so worried about being tight, what’s the solution then? Dr. Morrison explained that a woman’s tightness doesn’t depend on the vaginal opening, but on the pelvic floor muscles. Therefore, exercising those pelvic floor muscles is one way of making sure you maintain the “tightness.”
