Jennifer Garner stunned by medic’s warning that ‘vaginas may collapse’
Jennifer Garner was left stunned when she was warned by her obstetrician “vaginas may collapse”.
The 51-year-old ‘Dallas Buyers Club’ actress – who has children Violet, 17, Seraphina, 14, and Samuel, 11, with her actor ex-husband Ben Affleck, 50 – said she “just learned” the shocking fact and thinks it means it leaves sufferers unable to have sex.
In an apparent reference to vaginal prolapse, she told the new issue of Allure magazine: “I just learned that our vaginas may collapse. I saw my OB this week and she gave me a pamphlet about vaginal collapse. “I’m like: ‘When? Is it imminent? Do I need to put it in my calendar? What is happening?!’ It’s a thing.”
When her female interviewer asked: “Is it a thing that’s going to happen to all of us?” Jennifer replied: “No, it’s just a possibility.”
And when she was asked: “Is this the same thing that happens when you pee if you sneeze?” the actress responded: “No, that’s not collapse. Collapse is like you can’t have sex because you can’t get in there because it’s collapsed on itself.”
Jennifer, who was married to Ben between 2005 and 2018, also told the magazine she loves the challenge of motherhood.
She added: “Being a mother was one thing I knew I was going to be. I really could have been a mother in any way.
“I could have adopted, I could have fostered, but there was no doubt I was going to be a mom. I mean, I was the kid with the doll everywhere I went.
“And I had a babysitting company with my friend Carrie – ‘C and J’s Babysitting’ – from, like, seventh or eighth grade.”
