A 30-year-old member asked:

When having sex, the fluids in the vagina start drying up why does it glue up?

Many possib: It is likely that seminal fluid causes that consistency on the vaginal secretions. Orherwise glue-like vaginal secretions could mean inflammation/infection especially yelowish color and more if there is itching, increased secretions, or bad odor. Other possibilities is reaction to lubricants or to condoms. Vaginal dryness is common in the preovulatory phase, and postmenopausal years.

Yes: The vagina is an elongated muscular tube. If one does not engage in sexual activity, this will "tighten" but when one becomes sexually active again, it will passively redilate over time without difficulty.

Not necessarily: The vagina is a tubular shaped muscle that is designed to stretch but return to its normal length as long as there are no tears in the muscle with activity. Insertion of large items can stretch the muscles and create small tears under the skin that arent seen but dont heel properly and results in permanent change in the size. That is why babies heads tend to enlarge the area. Exercise can help.

Vaginal secretions: The vagina produces constant secretions about 15 ml daily on the average. Some women are more aware of it than others. During sex there are glands that produce excess secretions to aid with lubrication. Some of the normal secretion aids with the 'self cleaning' of the vagina. If there is no abnormal odor then i would not worry about the secretions. It's normal.
