Dr. Charles Bollmann, M.D.(Ob/Gyn, Fellow Amer. Academy Cosmetic Surgery, Founding Member Amer. Holistic Medical Assn.)answered(11/10/2013)If you have not delivered a baby, it is probably not necessary to worry about this.
If you have, then to tighten the vagina, surgery is necessary. It is a common procedure called a vaginoplasty. And in most cases, can be done as an outpatient.
In all my experience as a gynecologist, I have never seen an improvement with Kegel exercises in someone whose vagina was actually loose. One would have to be extremely obsessive-compulsive to achieve any results with Kegel's exercises - and over a long period of time.
But almost all doctors recommend them anyway - including me. But I have never seen them work.
