Vaginal Tightening Using ACV: Would You Try It?
Wondering how to tighten your vagina with vinegar? Find out if it actually works and what alternative options you have to tighten up down there.
Since time immemorial, we women have been putting things up inside of our vaginas. From jade eggs to wasp galls to stone dildos and everything in between, there is nothing we haven't tried to put into our vaginas. We've done this for different reasons, but mainly because women's vaginas are supposedly always failing us. We have always seen our vaginas as unclean or loose due to childbirth. So there's pretty much nothing women won't try in order to make sure our vaginas are in top shape.
Remember that there was a very real period when women regularly tried to clean their vaginas with Lysol,because the cosmetic industry said it was okay to burn their vaginas clean.
Well, no thanks.
Even today, you can still go to your local pharmacy and buy vaginal douche. But is it really necessary? Women mostly douche because they are embarrassed about the way their vagina smells.
Vinegar Baths, Anyone?
Vinegar baths have been a common practice for hundreds of years). They consist of women sitting in vinegar for the purpose of tightening both their vulvas and their vaginas. However, there is absolutely no science to this practice. If you sit in a bath with just a cup full of vinegar added to the water, it will burn really badly. And when you get out of the water it might feel like your vagina is tighter, but that sensation will only last for a few minutes at most.
Using Vinegar As A Douche
Vinegar is also an astringent, which means that it causes your skin and other body tissues to contract. The effects of an astringent are temporary at best and terribly drying at worst. Stripping your skin of its natural oils is one thing. But stripping your vagina of its natural lubrication can be harmful.
If you use vinegar to tighten your vagina what you will wind up with is a dry and irritated vagina. A vagina that's dry and irritated might feel "tighter" temporarily. But it's also going to leave you more prone to micro-tears, which in turn can lead to painful infections.
If you want to tighten your vagina, please do not try to tighten it with vinegar. Instead, concentrate on strengthening your pelvic floor using vaginal weights. Or you could simply perform vaginal strengthening exercises like Kegels.
It's worth mentioning that your vagina is powerful. It literally gives life. It's also a muscle. One you use frequently even if you aren't always aware of it. So be wary of anyone who makes you feel like your vagina needs to be tightened in the first place. Your most important reason for staying away from vinegar as a douche is because there's no medical science to it.
