Expanding vagina
Hi Doctor,

My vagina seems to be growing big. I don''t know if it becasue I stay with my boyfriend I wasn''t staying with since last year, as a result we have sex often, almost everyday. Now it seems to be very big. I was using regular size in tampons and it used to feel tight, now I can use super and not feel pain at all. Is this normal? what can I do to make it smaller and normal again? Am scared my boyfrend will loose interest in sleeping with me. Is there a cream I can use just to tighten the muscles?

The Vaginal Muscles tend to relax over time – the muscle group in reference is called the PC Muscles and like any muscle needs to be strengthened to maintain its strength. Most women tend to experience a weakening of these muscles overtime and would benefit from doing exercises specifically focusing on the PC Muscles. The exercises that work specifically for these muscles are called Kegel-excercises – You can google “Kegel exercises for women” and you will find several pages that discuss and explain how it works and how to go about doing these.
