Two Reasons Why You Must Ditch Vagina Tightening cream, What Expert Says
People in the business of Aphrodisiacs a.k.a Kayanmata have been trailing the blaze with vagina tightening cream.
A Nigerian health expert, Chinonso Egemba popularly known as Aproko Doctor has spoken on the efficacy of this medication.
According to Aproko, Vagina tightening cream does not work.
He further explained that they have two health implications for those exposed to the products.
- Vagina dryness
- Vagina soreness.
A sexually active woman with a dry vagina is exposed to scarring and sexually transmitted infections STIs.
Taking to his Instagram page, Aproko doctor explained:
“So, people are being deceived with aphrodisiacs to tighten the vagina.
“My job here is to tell you how those vagina tighteners affect your vagina.
“If you think it affects your vagina, well it does not.
“The v-g is elastic and can expand and contrast, depending on the size of the male organ you are intimate with.
“So, what they do is dry up your v-g. Once they dry it up, they can cause vagina tearing, scarring and even blue wall.”
While there is not enough proof that vagina tightening cream has a side effect, it is important to understand that vaginas vary.
There is no one size fits for vaginas.
A health portal known as Healthline describes various conditions responsible for tight vaginas. These conditions include:
- Pelvic floor over-reactivity: The portal explained that “It’s common for someone to say, ‘my vagina is too tight’ when in reality the issue is that the muscles around the vaginal canal are overactive or non-relaxing.” The common diagnosis for this is; hypertonic pelvic floor, non-relaxing pelvic floor, or overactive pelvic floor.
- Vaginismus: This is also a pelvic floor muscle condition that makes penetration difficult. It’s marked by involuntary contractions of the pelvic floor muscles before penetration. This is treated with a combination of therapies. In addition to sex therapy or talk therapy, a doctor or other healthcare professional will work with you to use vaginal dilators or trainers. These dildo-shaped devices can help you gain control of your pelvic floor and learn to release the involuntary muscular reaction you experience before penetration.
- Perineoplasty: This is a form of plastic surgery that involves altering the area between the front and back holes. The most common version of this involves suturing (stitching) the patch of skin between the two holes following vaginal childbirth.
- STI: The portal says that this does not necessarily change the form of a vagina but they make inflammation in the internal canal that can make the vagina feel smaller and tighter. Also, they make sex painful.
- Sexual Abuse: Emotional trauma affects sexual reaction and can be detrimental to overall sexual life.
- Congenital Abnormality: People born with thick hymen often experience pain after it has been torn.
- Injury: Any form of injury that affects the pelvis and the vagina is bound to cause painful sex.
In conclusion, it is important to note that vagina tightness varies among several health conditions and can be treated.
