How long until vaginal tightness returns?

I gave birth to my third child 3 months ago and it feels as though my vagina is stretched out.  My husband and I both immediately noticed a big difference.  I did not have this problem with my other two children, everything went right back to normal.  I had episiotomies with my first two and a slight tear with the third.  Just wondering if the muscles will eventually tighten?  How long will it take?  Do "virgin" creams work?  I ordered a Kegelmaster, but it doesn't seem to be working for me.  Thanks for your insights/comments.

just keep up with your kegel exercises. i used to practice them every time i went to pp :)
everything does go back to normal, sometimes it just takes a bit longer, i think.

however, do check with you doc about it too. make sure your tearing has healed properly.

Do your kegel excercises. I had the same thing and it does work but it takes time. but If I were you I would still check with your doctor.
