6. Does your vagina go back to normal after childbirth?
Yes and no. Your vagina is a muscle; it is meant to stretch and your body was built to birth a child. It would be a cruel trick of nature if the very muscle that was expected to expand and release a baby was also forever damaged after that natural reproductive process. That said, certain complications during childbirth (such as an episiotomy) might affect the way your vagina heals, but not necessarily in a bad way. The words “husband stitches” come to mind. Look it up. Generally speaking your vagina is meant to stretch and return to its shape.
