Demystifying the Vagina: Will too much sex cause my vagina to stretch?- Dr.Christine O’Connor explained

at July 09, 2018
If you have ever been worried that having too much sex or a well-endowed partner may cause size changes to your vagina, put those fears to bed (so to speak). Turns out the vagina is a very resilient part of the body that literally “bounces back” to its pre-activity size quite efficiently.

 

Will too much sex cause my vagina to stretch?

Vaginas are designed to be elastic and, in a position, to expand large enough for any penis size and especially childbirth. There are a number of relatively magical changes that take place in a female’s vagina during arousal and sexual activity.
The vagina is a very “elastic” organ, says Christine O’Connor, MD, director of adolescent gynecology and well women care at Mercy Medical Center in Baltimore. It is small enough to hold a tampon in place but can expand enough to pass a child through. This is because the walls of the genitals are similar to those of the stomach, they have rugae, meaning they fold together to break down when unused, then expand when necessary.
“It doesn’t stay one particular size,” O’Connor says. “It changes to accommodate whatever is going on at that time.”
The most commonly used measurements about the size of vaginas are derived from Masters and Johnson’s work from the 1960s. They will have looked at 100 women who had never recently been pregnant and located that vagina lengths, unstimulated, range from 2.75 ins to about 3.25 inches. When a female is aroused, it increased to 4.25 ins to 4.75 inches wide. Regardless how long the genitals is, the area that is considered to be important for most women’s sexual response is the outer a third.

What Happens To Vaginal During Arousal.

During arousal, blood circulation is increased to the vaginal area that provides lubrication to the rugae, the “bumpy” textured internal walls of the genitals. The rugae start to relax, which unfolds them and creates space for accommodating your lover’s penile regardless of his size.
“Even the largest penis in the world won’t compare to the size of the baby so it won’t affect the size of the vagina,” said Lauren Streicher, M.D., associate professor of obstetrics and gynecology at Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of Medicine and author of Love Sex Again.
