Silicone Dilators For Dilation Therapy
For dilation therapy, dilators are typically made from a medical-grade plastic or silicone material. For many people, silicone is a great choice due to their soft, flexible properties that allow them to be more comfortable during use. Because they are made with a gentler material, silicone dilators are great for beginners or more sensitive users. Silicone dilators feel a bit more natural and help reduce the risk of injury when compared to rigid plastics. They can also be temperature controlled if desired.
Using vaginal dilators is a safe and effective way to help those experiencing symptoms of:
- surgery recovery
- cancer treatments
- MRKH Syndrome
- other penetration-related pain
Pain with penetration is not exclusive to pain with sex, but also includes pain during the use of insertable menstrual products or during pelvic exams.
Dilation therapy allows you to help maintain the elasticity of the vaginal opening and inner tissues for improved comfort during penetration. This is because it allows your mind and your muscles to become more accustomed to penetration slowly and gently. It is a careful, progressive progress. Results and comfort levels vary from person to person, so comfort with penetration may show improvement anywhere from several weeks to several months after performing consistent dilation therapy.
