Does C-section Delivery Maintain Vagina Tightness?

Some women opt for c-section delivery to protect their vagina from the trauma of natural delivery.

After childbirth, many women feel a change in their sexual experience- a feeling of looseness and a lack of sensation during intercourse. The sensation you feel during sexual activities is largely affected by the health of your pelvic floor muscles. The healthier your pelvic floor muscles are, the more sensation you feel during sex. During pregnancy, your pelvic floor muscles are very strained from supporting the weight of the growing baby.

After c-section delivery, the vagina will look the same as before, but only on the outside. On the inside, your pelvic floor muscles have already been stretched like a rubber band that has been stretched for 9 months. That is why, even though the vagina may look the same as before from the outside, it does not feel the same anymore. The over-stretched pelvic floor muscles cannot go back to their original state without deliberate exercise and pelvic training that heals and strengthens the muscles.

The physical and visible state of the vagina (stretched or not) does not determine the tightness of the vagina.


The tightness of the vagina comes from the strength of the pelvic floor muscles that wrap around the vaginal canal, giving the vagina its structure and grip.

Regardless of the method of delivery, the strain on the pelvic floor muscles comes from pregnancy itself and not the delivery. Like every other muscle in the body, the pelvic floor muscles can only be strengthened with exercise. Doing pelvic exercises correctly can effectively help a woman improve bladder control, regain her sexual sensations and prevent back ache.
