This is the non-surgical vaginal treatment that could change your sex life

What exactly is Vaginal Laxity treatment?
"Quite simply put, it's a treatment that makes women feel better by plumping the tissue in the vaginal opening. Just like skin, vaginal tissue relies on collagen for its support. With the normal ageing process or physical stresses from child-bearing, the tissue can become overstretched and weakened. The result is very commonly a feeling of vaginal looseness called laxity, the side-effects of which can be a loss of sensation during intercourse, inability to orgasm or fewer orgasms and even urinary incontinence."

Vaginal laxity (that's looseness, in layman's terms) is a common subsequence of childbirth and its side effects include a loss of feeling during intercourse. We asked Dr Sabika Karim, who specialises in cosmetic medicine and minimally invasive treatments for the face and body, about what her nonsurgical vaginal tightening treatment 'Geneveve' promises – and what it delivers.
