ApexM & Vaginal Rejuvenation
Benefits of Tightened and Toned Pelvic Floor Muscles
Strong, healthy pelvic floor muscles are important for all women; not only do strong pelvic floor muscles prevent bladder leakage, they affect your sexual health and intimacy, too.
The natural process of aging, high impact exercise and childbirth take a toll on the health of the muscles that surround the vagina, causing them to stretch and lose tone and tightness over time. This loss of pelvic floor muscle tone may lead to issues such as bladder leakage, pelvic organ prolapse, reduced intimacy (for both you and your partner) and for some of us, a loss of self-confidence.
It’s All About the Pelvic Floor Muscles
Strong pelvic floor muscles lead to increased sensitivity during intimacy and stronger orgasms for women. Studies have also demonstrated that tightened and toned pelvic floor muscles increase the power and intensity of the female orgasm.
Many vaginal rejuvenation procedures impact the tissue only, and do nothing to impact the pelvic floor muscles that truly provide the support, tightness and tone. For this reason, many physicians who perform vaginal rejuvenation procedures such as GeneveveTM, O-Shot® or Thermiva® will include an ApexM along with their procedure.
Two musts for a powerful orgasm: a strong, healthy pelvic floor and getting the right stimulation, says Madeleine Castellanos, MD.
