Did you know that feminine health goes beyond hygiene and proper medical attention? Just like with our face, arms, and the rest of our body, loss of vaginal tone and elasticity occurs over time.
Loss of vaginal tone can be a side effect of natural childbirth and aging. This is something that I am experiencing myself after birthing four children and approaching my 42nd birthday. I have noticed that area of my body is certainly not what it used to be.
I deal with the unwanted personal stress that can be caused by leaking urine when sneezing or coughing due to loose vaginal tone quite frequently. Intimacy can sometimes be a problem for me because of bladder control issues and overall comfort level resulting from reduced estrogen levels that cause a loss of vaginal lubrication.
While it is true that as time goes on, the vaginal wall, which contains collagen fibers, can stretch and lose tissue tone and elasticity, there are some ways to fight back against these unpleasant ‘side effects’ of aging to feel our best selves every day.
The first – and most important way – is knowing and understanding (and loving) how our bodies work. As women in today’s society, it can be difficult to view aging as a natural – and totally acceptable – process. Everywhere we look, we are constantly challenged to look and feel young; and are consistently shamed for anything less. This can lead to misunderstandings of common biological functions that may serve to make many us feel ashamed or dysfunctional when that is certainly not the case.
We must ignore the social messages, and embrace our bodies fully, doing only the things for our bodies that we personally feel are best for us. To do that, we must get out of the commercials, magazines, and social media, and take the necessary time and effort to learn and understand our own bodies and how they function as we grow older in order to care for them as best as we can. This is especially true in the area of feminine health.
A key way to fight against loss of adequate vaginal function is to take a DIY approach with daily exercises. The pelvic floor muscles can get a workout of their own with certain exercises, such as Kegels, to help strengthen the inner walls of the vagina. If done regularly, these exercises can help minimize the loss of elasticity and shape in the vaginal area, thus improving feminine health problems such as bladder leakage and discomfort and/or displeasure during intercourse.
Another solution is to talk to a doctor about additional options that are available. One such solution is the CO2RE Intima laser treatment. It is a simple procedure that allows a physician to treat the above feminine health symptoms without medication or surgery. CO2RE Intima enables women to regain their intimate wellness with a painless, non-surgical, proven treatment.
CO2RE Intima is designed for women who want to relieve the signs of childbearing and aging in their vaginal area. This includes post child bearing and peri and menopausal women, women who desire enhancement in sexual functioning and a better sexual experience, women who seek vaginal cosmetic improvement and women who want to feel more confident about their feminine health. Not only is it proven effective, it is convenient. The procedure is completed in just three in-office treatments, with most CO2RE Intima patients feeling and seeing improvement after the very first treatment.
Feminine health issues brought on by childbearing and aging are not only common, they are also common concerns for many women. Even so, there is very little discussion or awareness of the impact of the effects of aging when it comes to feminine health – the topic and the symptoms are both often seen as embarrassing and uncomfortable to talk about. However, taking a proactive approach to maintaining feminine health function will empower us to feel more confident about our bodies, and yield many other great benefits for years to come.
