Girls, be honest after giving birth naturally was your vagina any larger in capacity?

Did it get more accommodating width wise or length wise or both?

Superb Opinion

  • I don’t have children but my mum got married at 21 as a virgin and says she bled and it was excruciating pain - so did my two aunts and all their cousins. We seem to have very thick hymens so we have a much more medieval experience than others. My friends have reported horrific pin, bleeding and lingering pain for a week or so but nothing compared to my family’s experiences.

    My mum says that her vagina was different after having a baby - of course. It’s like an elastic band. If you stretch it a lot it will stretch to the point it gets bigger permanently. It won’t be the same as a virgin or even before birth. However it does have to do with genes. It is a muscle and some people are genetically smaller/tighter than others. Age can contribute to looseness through loss of collagen and just like our skin loosens in other areas the muscles can loosen down there however everyone is different. My family have quite tight vaginas naturally and it appears to maintain the tightness. My mother had three vaginal births and says she still feels relatively tight - mot the same as pre-vaginal birth, but in no way loose.

  • For MOST women, the vagina will go back to pre-birth feeling for the man. I say feeling, not size, because the vaginal tone, is mainly based to the tone of the pelvic floor muscles, not the actual size of the vagina, so the more toned those muscles are, the more likely the vagina is to return to its pre-birth “size”, by which I mean obviously feeling for the man. The main factors that can cause the vagina to not feel as tight post-birth are genetics and weight. Morbid obesity can cause a loss of. pelvic floor muscle tone, and therefore affect how tight the vagina feels. Genetics is the final determiner in whether a Vagina will feel as tight post birth! Some people just have have a genetic weakness in the pelvic floor muscles. if urinary incontinence runs in the women of your family, especially after childbirth! then the chances are you may have a genetic weakness in the PF muscles. Now most women can be prone to slight urinary incontinence from time to time, it’s not uncommon, and is usually noticed after sneezing, or a coughing fit, but can also occur when changing position like sitting to standing. Of even just laughing! However with a genetic PF muscular weakness, the frequency of the issue, and the amount of urine leaked is considerably worse! Barring the aforementioned, a normal healthy woman will notice very little, to no difference in the tonality of the vagina after giving birth! Of the “tightness” felt my ones significant other”.

  • for few days after childbirth, vagina feels looser, softer and more 'open'." It also looks and feels swollen. This is normal, and the swelling and openness starts to reduce within a week or so after baby is born. Some home remedies and traditions also help a lot. High nourishing foods and body massage are part of it. After about six month of giving birth, we both – my husband and I were feeling normal. Women body goes through a lot of changes during pregnancy and that includes vagina, abdomen, breasts, skin, and hair - all look and feels different during and after pregnancy and birth. Growing an entire human being is not always easy. The uterus – not vagina is designed to stretch and accommodate a baby. After delivery, the tissues shrink back down to its pre-pregnancy state. There are several stages in-between. Vagina is a structure inside your body. Anything that you see on the outside, including labia, clitoris, and mons pubis are parts of the vulva, not the vagina. Vagina stretches during birth in order to be able to let the baby pass through the birth canal. Most changes in the appearance of vulva and vaginal opening that occur after pregnancy are only temporary. Hyper-pigmentation, however, may be permanent. Stretching, tears, and rips can occur around the vaginal opening. These injuries heal within two weeks or so. One of the most common issues after childbirth is urinary incontinence. It is treated easily. The pelvic floor muscles that work hard during birth play a role in sexual function and orgasm. Some simple exercises are enough to restore its function. Painful sex can be due to dryness caused by the hormonal changes of pregnancy and breastfeeding; this dryness is temporary. In general, vagina's function does not change as a result of pregnancy or delivery.

  • Wouldn't know. Never had kids. Mine is still tight.

    • @amandayvr wow good to hear yours is still tight at 48 :D does it get much use ;) ever been fisted?

  • The uterus will be the same size but in the case of the lady that gave birth to 9 kids awhile back, her would be stretched out like it was made of silly putty. They do have surgical procedures for that though, other wise you would hear echos whenever you got near it.

  • I had c-sections so I can’t answer personally but I know vaginas are resilient.

  • I guess that's possible after giving birth.

  • No if anything it swells like crazy after birth and makes it tighter. Not even my pinky could fit in there. When I had sex again it was so painful litterally like losing my virginity all over again.

    • @apple1996 how long was sex painful for? was it too painful for sex?

    • I call BS. Apple seems to be a man using a pink account. ha ha If anything the vagina and uterus relaxes saying, "Thank God, that is over!!"
