How Vaginal Rejuvenation Saved This Mom’s Sex Life

Aging, weight gain, weight loss, pregnancy, childbirth—our bodies go through a lot over the years, and change is inevitable. Unfortunately, some things don’t change in ways we would like. If this sounds familiar, you might relate to the woman in this Women’s Health Magazine story who opted for vaginal reconstruction after having three children. The procedure transformed her sex life—for the better! Here’s the gist of her story.

Before children, writer Robyn Damora and her husband had a great sex life. But after having delivered three babies vaginally and undergoing episiotomies each time, her anatomy had changed and she was no longer responding to intercourse like she did before. It wasn’t lack of desire that kept her from enjoying sex, but rather the physical impact that childbearing had had on her vagina—things just didn’t feel the same. The enjoyment and pleasure was gone and it began to take a toll on her relationship and intimacy in her marriage.

After six weeks of healing, she felt like she was 18 again—and she and her husband aren’t looking back.

She decided something needed to be done to save her sexuality, and underwent vaginal reconstruction to repair her severely stretched vaginal tissues and take back her confidence and pleasure in the bedroom. The results? After six weeks of healing (during which no sex was allowed), she felt like she was 18 again—and she and her husband aren’t looking back.

Are you in the same boat? You have options.

As Damora searched for ways to restore her body and her sex life, she realized something we tell our vaginal rejuvenation patients time and time again—this is something countless women experience but feel afraid to talk about. Nonetheless, these changes can be a big adjustment physically, sexually, and emotionally. They’re also not something you have to live with.
