Vaginal Dilators are 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)
Vaginismus Vaginal Dilators are designed with a narrow sloping tip and smooth finish to ensure maximum comfort and insertion. They are BPA-free, safe and easy to use. They are stored discretely in a small, portable case and come with 6 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 Vaginismus Vaginal Dilators with guidance from a Health Professional and in conjunction with other treatments.
Inserting the Vaginismus Dilators is easier when using a high-quality water-based lubricant such as YES Water-based lubricant.
