When to use vaginal dilators

1.- To treat fear of vaginal penetration or pain: Some women have an intense fear of something entering the vagina. This problem is called vaginismus. Likewise, others present dyspareunia, which is pain during sexual intercourse. Women can usually overcome this fear by practicing muscle relaxation while using a set of vaginal dilators that vary in size. In cases of discomfort during sexual intercourse, vaginal dilators can be a tool to facilitate penetration by allowing gradual adaptation to pressure and size. The crucial ingredient is that the woman has control over what goes into her vagina.

2.- After radiotherapy: If a woman receives radiation therapy to or near her vagina, she is usually recommended to use a vaginal dilator toward the end of the treatment. Using the dilator helps prevent the vaginal walls from sticking together and closing the scars.

3.- After vaginal reconstruction If a woman undergoes surgery to reconstruct her vagina due to a birth defect, she is instructed to use a custom-made vaginal dilator for her to wear while she sleeps and for a few hours during the day. The dilator helps the vagina remain as deep and wide as possible during healing.

4.- To create a vagina for women who are born without it or have a sex change. Some women are born without a vagina, this is called vaginal agenesis. In this case, a vagina is created through surgery which will remain permeable with the use of vaginal dilators. This would be the same case when a sex change is performed from man to woman.

5.- During Menopause Due to hormone deficiency, vaginal atrophy can occur, making sexual contact difficult. Dilators can keep the vagina active and thus allow the enjoyment of sexual activity at this stage of life. Dilators are useful for improving the elasticity of vaginal tissues, especially in situations where there has been atrophy or narrowing due to menopause.

6.- As a sex toy Vaginal dilators can be a great way to start introducing yourself to the world of sex toys, with their shape that can resemble a penis and their ease of use, as well as the different sizes so that you feel comfortable, without batteries or cumbersome technology makes it easy to use to learn more about your sexuality. Vaginal dilators can be your first sex toy that you can use alone or as a couple.
