I recently turned 35 years old. Scary stuff I know. Now I’m not super freaked about aging and getting wrinkly but I am a little worried, ok freaked out, about the toll aging may or may not take on my body and when does it start to happen?
I hear a lot of “vaginal rejuvenation” commercials on the radio and they totally FREAK ME OUT. What the hell is going to happen to my vagina and how can I make sure I don’t need rejuvenating, EVER?
I decided that THIRTY FIVE was a good age to go to the gyno and see how my va jay jay was holding up through all this aging stuff. You may be thinking, “ok, this chick is crazy” or you may be wondering the same thing about your own lady parts, especially after having kids.
So I make my appointment and admittedly I am feeling a little cray cray, lol, and it was kind of entertaining to see how my doctor responded to some of my aging vagina questions.
You see, I explained to her that I use a menstrual cup (she thought I meant some kind of birth control). Since having started using this cup method I went on to tell her I have become a little more, ok a LOT more accustomed to reaching all up inside there and feeling around…lol (yes I told you I was crazy) I told her I feel “stuff” and I want to make sure it’s normal.
When she realized the reason for my appointment was not because something was wrong but because I wanted reassurance that my vagina wasn’t about to fall out or turn inside out or something weird, she did look at me like I was a little “off.”
I don’t need to go on and on for you about the details of my appointment. She gave me the usual “blah blah blah” about kegels and exercising, don’t lift heavy things, take my vitamins.
Unfortunately, she confirmed that things weren’t as “tight” as they used to be up in there but it was normal for my AGE. Crazy right? At 35 having to worry about my aging lady parts!
Well that’s my story, now YOU know all I know about aging vaginas.
Have you wondered, worried or even thought about these crazy things yet? Tell me I’m not the only weird, freaked out one.
