Does your vagina really get loose after having children? I'm pregnant and thinking of having a c-section to stop this happening if it is a thing.

If you would have a c- section so your vagina doesn't stretch them you have no business having children.

Plot twist. Your vagina still changes even if you have a C section. Sorry 😂

 Exactly I think it has something to do with the muscle relaxing chemicals your body dispels during pregnancy it’s not just the birth itself.

 It's the pressure of being whale size preggers as well. Changes are gonna happen, sorrrrry.

No. Two natural births and sex with my husband is the same as before kids. And even if it does change things, why choose the riskier option for the sake of a tighter vagina?

No. Kegals and your vagina changes in pregnancy from the weight and stress. C section doesn’t help this.

I see the holier-than-though, judgmental asshole brigade is out today.

No. I’ve had four kids. My husband says my vagina is fine!

 As in hasn’t changed

 Omg any decent husband wouldn’t tell you that you have become a bit loose

I've had two vaginal births. Both times we didn't have sex for at least a few months after the birth (my grazes/tears didn't heal properly and had to get redone both times 🙄), and when getting back into it I was too tight. Took a while to stretch it back out and be comfortable again. This was the vaginal opening, the rest of it feels no different.

Are you talking about something like a prolapse from pushing a baby out? Yep that’s a thing but no reason for a c section

I just finished reading an article on ninemsn about the exact same thing. I have had a 3 c sections and my vagina is still fairly tight but my overhang on my stomach is my biggest problem. I can't get rid of it. If I had a choice I would have had vaginal births.

Literally 8 days after giving birth to my daughter I got so ridiculously horny and wanted to have sex with my husband. I had no tearing during childbirth, apparently I'm just stretchy like that 😂 He turned me down cause the doctor said to wait till 6 weeks, but we did it at 4 weeks and I still swear it was the best sex I have ever had in my life. So so tight, it was almost electric. Don't worry about it chick. Our bodies are AMAZING!

This has to be a joke. Nobody can be that stupid right? 🤔

Have major surgery and not be able to do a lot include drive for weeks or have a baby naturally as our bodies have evolved to do umm I don't know which one I would choose... idiot.
