    Question TMI... question regarding "creams"

    Has anyone tried vaginal tightening creams to tighten things up after having children? If so, has it worked for you? Did it actually tighten things or was it a big waste of money?

    I felt no need to tighten anything up after kids.

    I did my kegel exercises and it pretty much bounced back to normal as far as I know and care anyway.

    yes they do have creams. Kegels seem to do nothing. Ive even done it with a physio therapist .. no such luck

    Go back to your OB/Gyn - there is no reason your vagina shouldn't be returning to "normal" or as close as it gets after birth with Kegels.

    I personally would think that these creams would be a waste of money - but then again, I never even really thought about how "tight" my vagina may or may not be after kids. As long as a tampon still stays up there (and it does - no problem), I really, really don't understand... maybe I'm just the wrong generation?

    could it be that you have a prolapse and that's why things feel different? Maybe see the gyno again and have a frank discussion of the issues and what you would like to change? I had the worst delivery with my first, tore thru everything incl my cervix and things bounced back after some help from the gyno. Ive never felt the need for any creams as things seem the same as before? the gyno will ask lots of questions about pain, or loss of sensation or urinary leaks, but with a good gyno all the issues can be fixed

    Didn't you just give birth in 2015?

    I'm thinking you just need to give it some more time... also TMI, but I find that a little abstinence makes things tighter in general.
