A woman’s vagina is her crown, and good vaginal health leads to improved overall well-being.
Besides the regular vaginal exam to maintain physical wellness, a vaginal tightening treatment is recommended to improve not only the essential anatomy functions but also to enhance a woman’s confidence.
Not commonly known, the vagina refers to the muscular canal that lines the vaginal walls in a woman’s reproductive organ - not the entire organ. The external parts of a vagina consists of the vulva (orifice), labia (majora and minora), the clitoris, and the mons pubis.

A vaginal tightening treatment involves inserting an applicator or a tool about 3 to 6 centimetres in your vaginal canal, which is usually about 7 to 15 centimetres for an average woman.
One prominent outcome of a vaginal tightening treatment is a boost in sexual pleasure. By tightening the walls of the vulva, Dr Wendy Teo says this improves the contact between the nerve endings of both partners, thus increasing sexual pleasure.
Vaginal dryness can be a form of vaginal atrophy, where common symptoms include thinning vaginal tissues. As you age, your body produces less secretion to lubricate your vulva, and this can lead to tissue irritation and pain during urination or sexual intercourse. This is typical among women after menopause.
Another sign of menopause, urinary incontinence is not to be taken lightly. This indicates a weakened structure of your pelvic floor muscles, due to a decreased production in elastin and keratin in your vaginal tissues.
Vaginal tightening treatments can help in strengthening these muscles around the vagina, hence reducing incontinence.
Good vaginal health can truly benefit you in the long run. If you’re feeling motivated to get your first vaginal treatment in Singapore, it is always recommended to consult with your doctor or gynaecologist first to determine if you’re eligible for the treatment.
