Gina's Post Childbirth Transformation


Gina Sigobodhla’s story delves into the impact of childbirth, loss and the subsequent challenges of intimate health. Before her treatment, Gina felt "If there’s one thing I could change in my life, it’s my vagina. Since having children I’m no longer the same person" - a sentiment shared by many women.

Birth and Its Aftermath

Weakened Pelvic Floor, Urinary Issues, Disrupted Sleep, Impacted Sex Life

Gina vividly recalls her first childbirth in 2004, a spontaneous vaginal delivery resulting in a third-degree tear and a lengthy recovery. Despite receiving guidance on pelvic floor exercises, Gina admits, "I didn’t really understand," something that many women can likely relate to.

Shortly after, Gina discovered she was pregnant with twins, born prematurely via emergency C-section at 27 weeks. The emotional toll of caring for the twins and visiting them in the hospital meant that pelvic floor exercises were, understandably, not at the top of Gina’s priorities list.

Tragically, one of the twins, Ryan, passed away at just four months old, amplifying Gina's emotional and physical challenges. Subsequent childbirths exacerbated her symptoms, leading to urinary issues, disrupted sleep, and a significant impact on her sex life.

Seeking Help

Despite seeking medical assistance, Gina faced judgement based on her BMI. She shares, "I left feeling fed up and like there was nowhere else to turn." Something that many other women have also experienced when visiting their healthcare professional about their intimate health.

Thankfully, in 2023, Gina found Dr. Sarah Jenkins of The Door W4. After listening to Gina’s struggles, Dr. Jenkins introduced her to multiple revolutionary treatments, including Empower RF, V-tone, Morpheus8V and AVIVA. She explained the transformative potential of these treatments and how they can help address Gina’s struggles.

Gina’s Treatment - Did it Hurt?

Gina underwent a series of Empower RF treatments, including V-tone for pelvic floor stimulation, Morpheus8V for microneedling, and AVIVA for a non-surgical labiaplasty.

Gina describes her first treatment involving V-tone, a muscle stimulator, and Morpheus8V, emphasising the painless and effective nature of the procedures. “It wasn’t painful at all,” shared Gina. “Afterwards I felt well enough to drive home again. I wasn’t in any pain post procedure”.

Morpheus8v

Morpheus8v

Morpheus8V is a non-invasive radio frequency (RF) treatment that can alleviate painful intercourse caused by dryness, laxity due to childbirth, and urinary incontinence. Unlike other treatments, Morpheus8V doesn't require general anesthesia, but only locally applied numbing gel for some procedures. RF technology has been widely used on the face to reduce wrinkles and sagging skin.

VTone

VTone

VTone is an FDA-cleared technology that offers intravaginal electrical muscle stimulation (EMS) and neuromuscular re-education to help restore weakened pelvic floor muscles and address urinary incontinence caused by stress, urge, or a mix of both. This technology uses a gentle approach to help users achieve optimal pelvic health.

Aviva

Aviva

Aviva is a quick and efficient treatment for women seeking both aesthetic and functional vaginal enhancements. Aviva is especially useful for women who desire the results of a labiaplasty without the need for any excisions. With Aviva, patients can achieve their desired vaginal enhancements and improve their quality of life.

Gina’s Life-Changing Results

After having her initial treatments, Gina instantly noted “my vagina felt tighter and I didn’t have that constant urge feeling of needing to pass urine.”

In the days following her treatments, Gina noticed a significant reduction in nightly toilet visits.Today, after undergoing four treatments with Dr. Sarah Jenkins at The Door W4, Gina says "I sleep better than I have done in years. I’m also more confident going out because I don’t worry about needing a toilet close by and I’m happy driving long distances.”

Gina's intimate life also experienced a positive shift post-treatment, with improved dryness and a restored confidence in enjoying sex without the worry of pain or leaks. “The muscles in my vagina feel tight, and like a new vagina!” Gina remarks.

Gina’s Only Regret

Reflecting on her journey, Gina shares “My only regret is not having the treatment sooner.- if only someone had told me about it!”.
