According to Healthline, the vagina is elastic. "This means it can stretch to accommodate things coming in (think: a penis or sex toy) or going out (think: a baby). But it won't take long for your vagina to snap back to its previous shape."

It adds, "Your vagina may become slightly looser as you age or have children, but overall, the muscles expand and retract just like an accordion or a rubber band."

Can drinking groundnut water potentially help women tighten their vaginas?

Let's find out.

Fact Check

NewsMeter performed a keyword search to find relevant studies, research, and articles from credible sources to confirm the claim and found the following results.

According to Healthline, "Only two things can affect your vagina's elasticity: age and childbirth. Frequent sex — or lack thereof — won't cause your vagina to lose its stretch."

It further said, "Childbirth and age could potentially cause a slight, natural loosening of your vagina. Women who've had more than one vaginal birth are more likely to have weakened vaginal muscles."

The article also talks about some exercises to strengthen the pelvic area such as Kegel exercises, Pelvic tilt exercises, Vaginal cones, and Neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES).

However, we could not find any evidence backing the claim.

Further, a Health Guide article said there is no medical evidence to suggest that groundnut water can help tighten a woman's vagina. "We have to answer this question because there have been a lot of reports circulating on the internet about groundnut water being used to tighten the vagina. The simple truth is that there is no medical evidence that suggests that groundnut water can tighten the vagina," it said.

Hence, the claim is false.
