How do I loosen my vagina

Does the vagina really change that dramatically after giving birth?

Having a baby is the ultimate for many women. In addition to all the feelings of happiness, pregnancy and childbirth also harbor some unpleasantness. As long as the baby is still in the womb, women often struggle with mood swings, poor skin, water retention, shortness of breath, weight gain and back pain. Beauty is different and anyone who says pregnancy is a dream is sure to lie. In the end, the little creatures were always worth the strain, but the hardest part is and remains the birth. And it is definitely not a walk in the park!
Reality star Kim Kardashian can also tell you a thing or two about it. On her reality show, she and her brother-in-law Scott Disick discussed the changes in her vagina after having two children: “I don't think I can have another baby. When I think of it, I just think, 'Oh, I'll never be like I was downstairs.' But Kanye says it feels the same as before. "
And Scott, who has three cute children with Kourtney Kardashian, confirms: “Something changes 100 percent. I think Kanye and I just don't mind. But the fact is that something very big is coming out of it. Things are changing, at least internally. Then there are bumps and curves - you know what I mean? It's just not like it was before. "

Many women wonder what the vaginal entrance looks like after the birth.

Kim Kardashian is definitely not the only woman to make a record for it. Many women are afraid of being “worn out” after a natural birth. The saying (which by the way also brought Kim on her show) "It feels like throwing a salami into the hallway" is no coincidence. But what is it really about the rumor? We asked completely normal women - and received amazing answers:
Andrea: “I had three vaginal deliveries and one caesarean section. In all births something has changed physically, unfortunately most of all during the caesarean section. My vagina had birth injuries and you can still see some of them. My husband still enjoys sex with me just as he did before. Even with a changed vagina. "
Melina: “Well, I didn't notice any optical change. It still feels a little different now, three months after the birth. I cannot say what my friend thinks about this, because he has not yet had anything to do with 'her' again. But for me this is no reason to decide against a vaginal birth. The changes from caesarean section in the first child are much more massive. "
Martina: "With me - despite the perineal cut and seam - everything looks and feels like before."
Lisa: “Everything as before. I can still crack nuts with my vagina! "
Ann-Christin: “Everything is as it was before! The pelvic floor is naturally stressed during pregnancy. So it doesn't always have something to do with a normal birth. "
Julia: "So optically it looks like before, but I'm only a little torn because my son wanted to get out with his hand on his head (like Superman). Otherwise we did regular dam massages afterwards. "
Stefanie: “With me everything is as it was before. Says my husband too. Only the perineal incision is there now, but I still think it's better than a caesarean scar. I successfully got around it with a lot of discussion and was very happy about it. I don't wish that to any woman. "
Simone: “It's different with me. The vagina and uterus have sunk and the pelvic floor is worse than it was before the birth. Even with regular gymnastics, I haven't been able to change that for seven years. You can also clearly see the crack in the labia. "
So six out of eight women can refute the cliché! Only two out of eight women confirm that the vagina has changed visually and haptically after a strenuous birth. We think it's a good cut. Literally...
