FEMMAX® Vaginal Dilators were originally designed by a cancer nurse in the UK to manage adhesions following pelvic surgeries and radiation treatments. They are now recommended worldwide to help reduce the pain with penetration women can experience due to the following:
- Painful and tight Pelvic Floor muscles
- Vaginismus or Vestibulodynia
- Scar tissue following surgery or vaginal delivery
- Sexual trauma
- Hormonal changes (perimenopause / menopause)
FEMMAX® Vaginal Dilators are BPA-free, safe and easy to use. They are stored discretely in a small, portable hard case and come with 4 different sizes to allow a natural progression. Generally, the first step is to insert the smallest dilator to gently stretch the tissues whilst using techniques such as breathing exercises or guided relaxation to calm down your nervous system’s response. After practicing this for a while, if it becomes easy to do (i.e. you don’t experience any discomfort and you don’t feel anxious with insertion) then progression to the next size is indicated.
N.B. It is highly recommended that you use FEMMAX® dilators with guidance from a Health Professional and in conjunction with other treatments.
Inserting the FEMMAX® dilators is easier when using a high-quality water-based lubricant such as YES Water-based lubricant.
