With childbirth or aging comes vaginal laxity and decreased sensation. But we want you to know that you don’t have to settle for the changes you’ve experienced. With the help of vaginal rejuvenation, you can enjoy heightened sensation and vaginal tightness again. Here’s what you need to know about recovery following this revolutionary procedure.
What to Expect Following Vaginal Rejuvenation
If you’re considering vaginal rejuvenation, it’s important to know what to expect from the recovery process. Here are some of the most important things you need to know:
You Need to Practice Good Hygiene
It is incredibly important to keep your treatment area clean following your vaginal rejuvenation procedure.
You Need to Take Antibiotics
The best candidate for vaginal rejuvenation is one who will follow all after-care instructions. Taking an antibiotic will destroy microbes in your body, keeping you healthy following your procedure. Take your medication as instructed.
Abstain From Sexual Intercourse
The most common reason women want vaginal rejuvenation is to enjoy sex again. Following your procedure, you’ll have to wait a set amount of time. The contraction and expansion of your vaginal muscles that happens during sexual activity is not good for your recovery.
Practice Kegel Exercises
If you’ve never performed a kegel exercise before, it’s pretty simple. Stop your urination midstream. The muscles you feel contracting are your pelvic floor muscles. Once you know what they feel like, you can gently contract and relax them for five consecutive seconds. Of course, consult our doctor before doing this.
Drink Lots of Water
Hydration is always important. But it’s particularly important when you’re recovering from vaginal rejuvenation or any type of surgical procedure.
Avoid Heavy Lifting
If you have children or grandchildren, it can be hard to resist picking them up. However, you don’t want to affect the treatment area in any kind of way. Hire a babysitter or ask family to help if you have any small children living in your household. The best thing you can do for yourself is to get as much rest as possible following your vaginal rejuvenation procedure.
