In 1996, doctors began using a measurement called the pelvic organ prolapse quantification system as a way of helping them see how well they were doing repairing that area after childbirth.This was the first time there was a true before-and-after measurement, Tarnay says.“Women who are able to contract the pelvic floor muscles can increase or decrease the size of the hiatus,” he says.“Increasing pelvic floor muscle tone can reduce looseness.” Kegel exercises can be very effective at strengthening these muscles, Tarnay says, and they may generally improve sex.Researchers used medical records, an exam, and questionnaire of 500 gynecological patients aged 40 and older to see if there was a correlation between vaginal length and opening size and sexual satisfaction.The researchers found that desire, arousal, orgasm, pain, and sexual satisfaction were not linked to vagina size.

Regardless of how long the vagina is, the area that is thought to be important for most women’s sexual response is the outer one-third. This typically occurs if the vagina is too short or tight or they have a prolapse, where the uterus, bladder, or other organs fall out of place, typically after childbirth. “There is such a wide range of normal, one can be completely assured that in the absence of prolapse, length has no impact on sexual satisfaction.” What may make a difference, Tarnay says, is what he calls the genital hiatus -- the vaginal opening.
The complaints he hears from his patients are typically after childbirth.
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 vagina are similar to those of the stomach, they have rugae, meaning they fold together to collapse when unused, then expand when necessary.
After you’ve found the muscles, practice contracting them for five to 10 seconds, and then relax. Repeat the process 10 to 20 times, three times a day.
