Dr. Alinsod explains if vaginal rejuvenation has an impact on a woman's sex life.
It can. It can increase the friction involved when a woman is having sexual relations with her partner, but it absolutely, probably does not increase the way a woman feels when she has orgasms. The orgasms will pretty much remain the same, and if a lady is unable to have orgasms in the past, this surgery probably will not improve or give her orgasms also.
So it’s not a panacea procedure for people with sexual dysfunction. Its intent is to narrow the vault of the vagina, increase friction, and this is something for sure that the husband will notice, husband will notice or partner will notice that there’s increased friction.
But whether it improves sex lives per se by changing the orgasmic platform, no, it won’t do that, but most of my patients tell me that their sex lives are better because, one, they can feel more sensation when they are having relations, and certainly their husbands do feel that there is a significant difference.
