After childbirth, hormonal changes, or normal aging, women can experience vaginal looseness or relaxation, which decreases stimulation during intercourse and can make sexual intercourse less gratifying. Vaginal relaxation can also lead to tampons to falling out, problems passing bowel movements, tissue protruding from the vagina, and other unpleasant symptoms. Laser vaginal rejuvenation can help relieve these symptoms.
