Does Vagina stay stretched out after natural birth?

Just something I wanted to find out from the moms or doctors instead of always listening to the rumors. Is there a big difference in the vagina after giving birth ? Well I know right after it is giggle But what about after some time, say a year? Does it take it's own shape again?

Thanks

Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum.
The vagina gets back to its normal tone and a most back to shape if you are regular with the toning up exercises. It takes about 3-6 months time for vagina to regain the lost tone and the shape after childbirth. The exercises are called as Kegel’s Exercise.
Take care.

Yea even with doing keegels a lot, your vagaina never really goes back to what it was before you had a baby. Sorry to say it, but its true.
