Let’s Explore 5 Different
Vagina Tightening Techniques
...and a simple new product that works wonders - the vejuVe® Enhancer
Having a loss of tightness within the vagina, a loose vagina or a stretched vagina can severely impact sexual confidence and sensation felt during intercourse. Both of which can have a negative impact on your relationship. In this article, we'll look at 5 options for tightening the vagina and we'll evaluate the pro's, con's and cost for each of them. We'll also explain why couples are choosing the vejuVe Enhancer over the other options for several simple reasons - vejuVe is comfortable, affordable and very easy to enjoy.
The top 5 vaginal tightening options are:
- Sexual Enhancers / Vaginal Insert - vejuVe
- Conventional Wisdom – Kegels
- Chemicals & Herbs – Hmm?
- Laser Treatments – $$
- Vaginal Surgery (Vaginoplasty) – $$$$
1. Vaginal Insert / Sexual Enhancers
I always wondered why intercourse after having kids never felt as intense. I delivered both of my kids vaginally and like many women, my vagina has never been the same since. Everything works okay, just not as nice as it did before. So, when it comes to bringing back those lost sensations during intercourse, what products are available to indulge with?
The vejuVe Enhancer is the simplest, most natural and pleasurable couples sexual enhancement product available. A comparable alternative to the vejuVe Enhancer are male sleeve enhancers. These sleeve enhancers slide over the penis and add girth. Unfortunately, these enhancers have three main drawbacks:
- they're not designed to push the penis up into the clitoris or G-spot for enhancing female stimulation,
- they're like very thick condoms, taking away most, if not all, of the sensation felt by the penis during intercourse, and
- most of the sleeve enhancers on the market are not made with certified safe materials.
The vejuVe Enhancer solves all of these drawbacks. Instead of sliding over a penis, this sexual enhancer inserts into the vagina, gently uncurls to hold itself in place, and pushes the penis into the clitoris and g-spot for enhanced stimulation during intercourse (in any of your favorite positions). See how the vejuVe inserts into the vagina. There’s also nothing covering the penis, so your partner feels all of the natural friction and pressure of sexual intercourse. The vejuVe Enhancer really is a mutual pleasure product that allows the penis to stroke more effectively against the erogenous zones of the vagina while making the vagina feel more snug around the penis. Essentially, the vejuVe Enhancer is like a push up bra for the penis!
Whether you’ve had children or not, the vejuVe Enhancer is designed to enhance the sensations felt during intercourse. If you have had children through vaginal deliveries, and your vagina has some extra room, the vejuVe Enhancer is specifically designed to add volume within the vagina. This allows a penis to stimulate the nerves around the most sensitive areas of your vagina more effectively. If you have not had children but you’re craving more sensation during penetration, the vejuVe Enhancer will do just that. Both of you will enjoy the added stimulation. The vejuVe Enhancer is soft silicone vaginal insert made in Canada.

2. Strengthening the Pelvic Floor with KegelsFor years and years I have tried to maintain a Kegel exercise program with some degree of success. But, like many workout schedules, I missed days – many days. Maintaining a strong and healthy pelvic floor takes a considerable amount of time and effort, but the rewards are really worth it, especially as we age. If you're new to Kegels, here's a great start routine:
First, next time you urinate – stop the flow – those muscles are some of the ones that you want to target.
- For your exercise routine, squeeze those muscles for 3 seconds, then relax those muscles for 3 seconds.
- Repeat this exercise about a dozen times per session and try to do this at least 3 times a day. Try doing them at breakfast, lunch and dinner – it's an easy way to remember when to do them.
- Make sure to keep your stomach and thigh muscles relaxed.
- Add one second each week until you are able to squeeze continuously for 10 seconds each time.
The focus with Kegel exercises is to re-establish control of the pelvic floor muscles including those muscles that are within the vagina. This simple routine is good for urinary control but is not sufficient for the entire length of the vaginal canal. Let’s break down the length of the vagina into three sections, the first third, the middle third and end third. The muscles that are used to stop the flow of urination are within the first third of the vagina. Those first third muscles are easy to target by stopping the flow of urine. The simple Kegel routine above will help to strengthen and maintain those muscles. However, in order to develop the muscles within the vagina or the middle third muscles, that requires a much more sophisticated approach.
Many women believe that they have a strong pelvic floor because they can easily stop the flow of urine, however, they may have poorly developed or atrophied middle third muscles within the vagina. An easy way to determine if you have poorly developed middle third muscles is to insert a finger as deep as possible into the vagina and squeeze. If you feel the squeeze all around the tip of your finger then you likely have a well developed muscle structure within the vagina. If you can’t feel the squeeze, targeting the middle third muscles often requires professional assistance, sophisticated machines and close monitoring of progress. I found this site on Kegels to be very insightful on the subject, albeit quite technical. If your goal is to rebuild the middle third muscles of your vagina, I would recommend booking an appointment with a pelvic floor specialist.
Can atrophied vagina muscles be a cause for a loose or larger vagina? Yes, if you have a loose vagina, it’s possible that you have atrophied vagina muscles, which can happen whether you’ve had children or not. Muscle atrophy is defined as a decrease in the mass of the muscle; it can be a partial or a complete wasting away of the muscle. During the vaginal delivery of a child, the muscles within the vagina are stretched considerably. Some vaginas bounce back from this and others need focused work to develop those muscles to effectively tighten the vagina. It’s important to note that many women have atrophied vaginal muscles and feel no discomfort or day to day inconvenience at all.
How do the muscles within the vagina atrophy? When muscles aren’t used regularly they generally shrink in size and become weaker over time and subsequently they atrophy. Some people are just good at squeezing all the right muscle groups, keeping everything in good working order. I find that I have to consciously work on my Kegel exercises to maintain good pelvic floor muscle control.
The Pros, The Cons, The Cost – Kegel Exercises
- Stronger and more intense orgasms
- More sensation felt during intercourse
- Less likely to have accidental leaks (when laughing, exercise, or during sexual activity)
- Increased sexual confidence
- Able to provide more pleasure to a penis (See the article on vaginal texture and delayed ejaculation)
- Feminine products stay in place more easily (tampons and Diva Cups)
- If the vagina is tight and the penis is large, intercourse may be difficult or painful (painful intercourse can be a medical condition called vaginismus)
- From free to hundreds even thousands of dollars for pelvic floor therapies
3. Vaginal Tightening Creams, Vaginal Tightening Gels & Vaginal Tightening Herbal Sticks
I’m not in a position to speak to the effectiveness of vaginal tightening creams, vaginal tightening gels or vaginal tightening herbal sticks because I have never personally tried them and I don’t know anyone who has. I’m not too keen on putting non-certified herbs or chemicals into my vagina. These creams, gels and herbal sticks may be advertised to be completely safe, however, my research has shown me that some people have had some adverse reactions. I also understand that the creams and gels can dry out your vagina which is the last thing I need. So, for me, I’ll stick with my Kegel exercise program and my vejuVe Enhancer. Here’s an excellent article from Women’s Health on these vaginal tightening creams and gels.
The Pros, The Cons, The Cost – Vaginal Tightening Cream, Gel & Herbal Sticks
- May tighten the vagina
- Low cost
- Not certified skin-safe
- May dry out the vagina
- Potentially not skin-safe
- Potential for adverse reactions
- Under $50.00
4. Laser Vaginal TighteningYears ago I experimented with laser hair removal and trusted the sales literature that it was a permanent hair removal solution. I later found out that it’s only permanent if you continually go in for treatments. Humph, I wish I had known that before going in, given that those treatments are quite expensive. So my first question with laser vaginal tightening is, how long will it last, and my second question is, how effective is it? Through my research, I have actually struggled to find credible sources on how effective laser vaginal tightening is and on how long it lasts. It's also a very costly procedure too.
How can a laser make your vagina tighter? According to the marketing literature: the vaginal tightening laser stimulates the body to produce more collagen in the treated area – inside the vagina. Collagen is an important protein used by the body to build muscle, strengthen and rejuvenate skin cells, while at the same time improving the elasticity of the skin. Therefore, in theory, laser vaginal tightening should work to:
- help restore sensation within the vagina,
- help with the production of nature lubricant and
- may help with vaginal tightening.
This brings me back to the atrophied inner vagina muscles that I spoke about above. I personally have struggled to strengthen certain muscle groups (my middle third muscles deep within the vagina), having children definitely affected my vaginal structure. Like many women, I have no problem with controlling my urine flow but I can’t feel the squeeze around my finger tip. I’ve considered visiting a pelvic floor specialist but for the time being I’ve solved my “dilemma” by using a vejuVe Enhancer. It’s brought back all of the climactic sensations that I thought were gone for good.
The Pros, The Cons, The Cost – Laser Vaginal Tightening
- May tighten the vagina
- May enhance sensations felt during intercourse
- May stimulate the production of natural lubricant
- High cost
- May not be a long term solution (some reviews state up to 1 year for effectiveness)
- May have some discomfort after each session
- Thousands of dollars (each year)
5. Vaginal Reconstruction SurgeryMy heart goes out to all the women who need vaginal reconstructive surgery. I have a few friends that have gone through vaginoplasty, also commonly referred to as vaginal rejuvenation, after delivering their children and I really do feel for these women. Fortunately, for many women, there might be a simple solution to explore, prior to going in for vaginal surgery.
Vaginal reconstruction surgery is just that – reconstructing the vagina to be as close to having “normal” function as possible. Even though vaginas come in different shapes and sizes, normal function here refers to:
- being able to urinate comfortably,
- being able to use feminine products (tampons) effectively,
- being able to enjoy sex, and
- having no prolapses in the pelvic area.
- small bowel, and/or
- vagina - yes, the vagina can actually prolapse and fall out of itself.
- Nerve damage
- Loss of sensation
- Pain during intercourse
- Long recovery period
I’ve solved my lack of sensation issue with a simple, safe and affordable solution – I warm up my vejuVe Enhancer in a cup of warm water, curl, insert, and enjoy all of the stimulation that I felt before having my children. I don’t feel the need to have surgery and my husband also really enjoys the added stimulation provided by the vejuVe as well.
Vaginal Reconstructive Surgery – The Pros, The Cons, The Cost
- Can tighten the vagina
- May enhance stimulation during intercourse
- May stimulate the production of natural lubricant
- High risks (see list above)
- High costs
- May make situation worse
- May create other issues
- Painful post op recovery
- Thousands to 10’s of thousands of dollars
I’m a firm believer that we should all strive to make healthy choices for ourselves. Amongst all the stresses in life, simple pleasures can bring much joy. I’ve touched on a host of different options on how to tighten your vagina and have carefully put together a brief set of pro’s, con’s and costs for the different options. I personally have found solace and much pleasure with the vejuVe Enhancer, it’s been a life saver for me. My sexual confidence was lower than I wanted it to be, I had a lot less sensation during intercourse and my interest in sex after having kids was less than desired as a result of what happened to my vagina when I had children. I now enjoy greater intimacy on a whole new level and I have restored my sexual confidence which has been very empowering for me.
