Re: how long does it take your vagina to tighten back up after having sex?

I'm not quite sure I understand the question, but I'll give you a few tips on what I think you might be saying.

If you feel like your vagina is stretching during masturbation or intercourse, you may just have a simple thing called Vaginismus. It's basically a tightening of the muscles in your vagina that keep it protected from things trying to get in. This can result from a few things like sexual abuse or emotional distress while having sex that makes you tense up.

<a href="http://sogc.medical.org/health/health-vaginismus_e.asp"> Here's a link that might help you out with this. </a> It includes exercises to help tighten and relax that muscle to it won't feel as tight.

On the other hand, if you don't feel tight at all during sex (you're lucky, for one) for the other, you shouldn't worry about anything. There's something the vagina does called "ballooning" that happens when you're aroused - it lets more room for the insertion of the penis. This is completely natural, and should go away soon after sex - meaning that your vagina should, in essence, 'tighten' up, but really it's just going back to normal.

For reference - if you're really worried about anything you should consider seeing your doctor.
