Tennessee experiences roughly 80,000 births a year, with the number increasing over recent years. For many people, giving birth is a cause for vaginal rejuvenation procedures. But what is vaginal rejuvenation, and why should you seek the procedure?
If you’re curious about whether you’re a good candidate for vaginal rejuvenation, we’re happy to help. Read on to learn more about this process and its benefits, as well as why you may be a good candidate.
What Is Vaginal Rejuvenation?
As we age, our bodies will change in ways we can’t always predict. One common experience for women and transgender men is for issues to arise with the vagina.
Excessive dryness, loss of sensation, and incontinence are all frequent complications. Loose skin around the vagina is also exceptionally common. While these issues are widespread, many feel shame or a lack of confidence as a result.
Vaginal rejuvenation is a procedure that aims to fix many of these issues. The procedure is a single term for multiple procedures, which includes, but is not limited to:
- Clitoral hood reduction
- Laser treatment
- Radio frequency treatment
Each of these procedures is specialized to fix different issues and complications. You should consult with your doctor to see which is best for you.
In short, vaginal rejuvenation is a medical procedure that aims to fix many common consequences of aging in the vagina. These procedures can be surgical or non-surgical. Recovery time depends on the procedure carried out.
Reasons to Seek Rejuvenation
Now that we better understand vaginal rejuvenation, we can look into why someone would seek the process.
Your first step should always be to speak to your gynecologist or general practitioner. They can advise you on if the procedure is necessary, and if so, what sort of procedure to seek.
Tennessee has a great deal of resources for seeking this information. Here are some of the many symptoms that may cause you to ask your doctor about the procedure.
Lack of Lubrication
As we age, the vagina may fail to self-lubricate. As a result, dry skin and discomfort can begin and worsen over time.
The issue can lead to intercourse pain, chafing, and more. Many people counter this issue with external lubrication or avoiding intercourse.
However, a lack of intercourse can also lead to complications, especially mentally or emotionally. Vaginal rejuvenation can help your body self-lubricate again. If you find that your body isn’t producing its natural lubrication, speak to your doctor about rejuvenation.
Another common issue is incontinence, or a lack of control over urination. As a result, many people have difficulty stopping themselves from urinating, or difficulty doing so on “command.”
For some, this causes a transition to adult diapers, which isn’t desirable for most patients. Many people have a dramatic drop in self-confidence when their condition forces them to wear diapers. Others resent the hassle that carrying extra clothes carries.
Furthermore, the anxiety of not being able to control your bladder leads to emotional turmoil. Urinary leakage is a dominant reason for many people to seek rejuvenation, which can remedy the issue.
A third reason to seek rejuvenation is if you’re experiencing vaginal looseness. The more common term for this symptom is vaginal laxity.
There are many beliefs that vaginal laxity is the result of sexual intercourse. These myths persist, but you can rest assured that vaginal intercourse will never be the sole cause of laxity. Furthermore, it’s rare for intercourse to be a contributing cause in the least, save for extreme circumstances.
Still, laxity can result in a lack of vaginal sensitivity or interest in sexual intercourse. The lack of intimacy can impact someone’s self-confidence or emotional state. Regardless of intimacy, there are other complications and discomforts with vaginal laxity.
The dominant reasons for vaginal laxity are aging and childbirth. Pelvic surgery and menopause can also contribute to the condition.
With so much information, how can you decide if you’re a good candidate?
The best way, as always, is to consult with a medical professional. In Tennessee, you’ll almost certainly need to do so to have a referral to the proper surgeon.
Here are some of the conditions that may lead to you being a good candidate for vaginal rejuvenation.
One of the most taxing things on a vagina is childbirth. Childbirth can lead to tearing and other damage to the vagina and perineum.
The elasticity of the vagina is also pushed to its limits, which can lead to vaginal laxity, urinary leakage, and high vaginal sensitivity. In many cases, a lack of self-lubrication and intercourse pain will also appear.
If you’re experiencing any of these symptoms after birth, you should consult your doctor. It may be that you’re still healing, but if enough time has passed, it could be lasting damage.
As a note, this condition applies solely to vaginal births. If you delivered your children via cesarean section (C-section), your vagina should not be affected.
Menopause is the second leading cause of needing to seek vaginal rejuvenation. As our bodies age, the dramatic shift in hormones can cause any number of symptoms. These symptoms include vaginal dryness, loss of libido, irritability, changes in the health of our skin, and many more.
If you’re enduring menopause or have recently gone through the natural transition, you should discuss rejuvenation with your doctor. Doing so can help you overcome some of the lingering symptoms.

Vaginal rejuvenation is a medical procedure meant to help with many common symptoms, from urinary leakage to difficulties with self-lubrication.
