Hi,

Thanks for your question.

Aum may cause irritation, dryness & increased risk of infections.

It also has not proven to 'tighten' the vagina.

Hence, avoid using it.

You can do pelvic floor exercises daily for tightening your vagina.

Estrogen vaginal cream is also helpful.

Another option is vaginal rejuvenation surgery.
