35 million women in the US suffer from urinary incontinence most of whom experience stress or mixed incontinence.
Just like skin, vaginal tissue relies on collagen for its support. With the normal aging process or physical stresses from childbearing, the tissue can become stretched and weakened. The result is a feeling of vaginal looseness called laxity, the side effects of which can be diminished physical sensation during intercourse and urinary incontinence.
Millions of women suffer from vaginal laxity. In fact, 88% of doctors surveyed said vaginal laxity is the number 1 physical change occurring post vaginal delivery. Vaginal laxity often goes unreported by their patients, and therefore untreated. 83% of doctors surveyed said vaginal laxity was underreported by their patients. Consequently, vaginal laxity can have a profound effect on a woman’s overall health and well-being.
