We’ve all heard of the REAL AGE test that tells us how our bodies are aging versus our actual chronological age. Well this week on Dr. Oz, he took that test to a whole new level. The Real Age Test for our genitals. I bet you never really thought about how old your vagina is, and is it the same age as you?
According to Dr. Oz, the condition of your sex organs are a huge indicator of what is going on inside your body and subsequently, your overall health. Conditions such as high blood pressure, hormonal imbalances, high cholesterol and stress, can prematurely age your vagina. And the men are not off the hook either. These conditions affect their penis as well.
The test includes . . .
BMI (Body Mass Index), which for women should be at or around 33. Fat cells excrete hormones that control estrogen levels as well as testosterone levels. These hormones affect your sex drive, your libido.
SLEEP also affects your sex drive. Women, and men, should be getting 7.5 hours of sleep per night.
BLOOD SUGAR LEVELS affects the nerve endings. Levels that are too high can dull the nerve endings in the vagina, causing you to lose sensation and pleasure.
HORMONE BALANCE is essential to a healthy vagina. Dr. Oz suggests 8mg of Zinc per day for optimal hormonal balance.
EXERCISING YOUR VAGINA through Kegels keeps the pelvic floor strong, keeping the vagina tighter, creating more pleasure for both partners.
If you suspect any of the above to be out of whack, consult your doctor. All of the above are easily treatable and easy to be fixed. Diet and exercise will reduce your BMI and blood sugar levels, going to bed one hour earlier per week can help you reach your goal of getting 7.5 hours of sleep, 8 mg of Zinc will maintain hormonal balance and kegels will tighten your vagina. A good place to start is with a check-up at your doctor to determine your blood sugar and hormone levels. And as always, consult with your doctor when embarking on any new diet or exercise regime.
On the Dr. Oz show a 43 year old woman and her 41 year old husband were tested and the shocking results were that her vagina was 73 and his penis was 71. How old is your vagina, really?
