Vaginal dilators are used by women who wish to stretch their vagina or to develop strength in the vaginal muscles and pelvic floor.
The Vagiwell brand of dilators has a collection of different sized pieces, designed for the user to effortlessly follow their training or treatment programme. Made from medical grade silicone, they are smooth with no unnecessary grooves or recesses which prevents the build-up of bacteria. They are also easy to clean. The 'warmth' of the silicone is notable too, as soon as you touch it, it feels warm, so no cold shocks upon insertion! Designed primarily as a medical device they also have the ideal balance of firmness and flex, so each piece can be firmly inserted whilst bending gradually.
Exercising the pelvic floor is essential to help improve the strength, flexibility and control of the pelvic floor muscles. Vaginal dilators (also known as vaginal trainers) are tools which can help to restore or expand the pelvic floor muscles and vaginal wall tissues. They are often recommended for a combination of reasons. They can help to train the pelvic floor muscles to relax and lengthen as part of a structured programme. They help women to begin or resume vaginal penetration, whether for sexual activity, use of tampons, or tolerance of a gynecological examination.
Vaginismus is the body's automatic reaction to the fear of some or all types of vaginal penetration. Whenever penetration is attempted, your vaginal muscles tighten up on their own. You have no control over it. Vaginismus can make intercourse painful. Vaginal dilators can help relax muscles and stop spasms. Their primary purpose is to stretch the vagina. People with vaginismus use dilators to become more comfortable with, and less sensitive to, vaginal penetration.
Vaginoplasty is any surgical procedure that results in the construction or reconstruction of the vagina. Pelvic organ prolapse is often treated with one or more surgeries to repair the vagina.
Vaginal dilations are a very important part of the recovery process after vaginoplasty. Dilations keep the vagina open preventing vaginal stenosis – a process where the vaginal walls scar down and contract. The new vagina has a tendency to close because the body’s reaction to any procedure is to scar and try to heal itself – although in this situation this “healing” process is counterproductive. For this reason dilators can be a useful tool.
