Vaginal Relaxation Syndrome or VRS is the loss of structural support in the tissue of the vaginal canal from the natural physiological changes like childbirth, menopause and ageing. This development of laxity makes the vagina wider with weaker vaginal muscles which in turn cause decreased sexual gratification and the development of other conditions like urinary incontinence and vaginal atrophy. Weak vaginal muscles cause less stimulation due to the lack of frictional contact during sexual intercourse. Vaginal Tightening Toronto is increasingly becoming a popular option to treat vaginal relaxation syndrome. It is fast replacing conventional methods.
