Q & A

Q:  I have heard that once a woman has a baby she is loose down there.  Is this true?

A:  The tissue that makes up the vaginal walls is more elastic than any other part of the human body.  With a little bit of healing time the walls will spring back to their normal size.  The muscle, however, can be traumatized, which might make your vagina feel loose.  Muscle trauma can also affect a woman’s body’s ability to hold urine.  She may leak a little pee if stress is applied to her abdomen.  Exercising her pelvic muscles will not only stop the pee problems but tighten her vagina.  However, in the rare cases where childbirth is especially traumatic, reconstructive surgery may be required.

If you are pregnant or have recently given birth be patient with your body.  Sharing your body with a child through pregnancy and breast-feeding is a serious trip.  You will have physical and emotional reactions to these experiences that may distort your sense of self and possibly your body image.  Take time to care for yourself.  If your lover has children, it’s worth going out of your way to arrange for her/him to have solo rest time.  Ultimately this will raise your lover’s spirits, leave her/him feeling less stressed, with more energy – all of which can lead to more sex!
