Women with androgen insensitivity syndrome (AIS) or Mayer-Rokitansky-Kuster-Hauser (MRKH) syndrome are born with a genetic makeup that results in narrow and shallow vaginal openings.
They may undergo surgery to assist with altering vaginal depth; however, many do not. Vaginal dilator training can be an effective tool for lengthening the vaginal opening and creating a wider opening for intercourse.
These women may experience stigma in their lives and may feel pain when attempting have sex or to use dilators so that they can have sex. The proper use of vaginal dilators over time can be helpful in achieving pain-free intercourse.
Vaginal dilators, also referred to as vaginal trainers, are used to restore vaginal width, depth, and elasticity to allow for sexual activity in women with AIS and MRKH syndrome.
They are also useful for women experiencing vaginismus, vulvodynia, vestibulodynia, pelvic pain, or vaginal tightness associated with menopause or after radiation or surgery to the pelvic or vaginal region.
These unique pelvic floor exercisers are commonly recommended after certain types of cancer treatments such as radiation and surgery.
The Intimate Rose dilators for women feature a silky texture and unlike many of the other trainers, they are not sticky or hard.
The graduated sizes allow for women to find their perfect fit and progress to reach their goals. The average length of the female vagina is 3–4 inches. For many women with AIS or MRKH syndrome, this can feel daunting if not demoralizing.
It is important to recognize that vaginal training is a process and that ultimately the end goal is up to you.
Learn what Dr. Amanda Olson says about vaginal trainers for AIS and MRKH.
A training plan for AIS and MRKH syndrome should consist of using a dilator for 15 to 20 minutes daily. During that time, it is important to breath calmly.
Maintaining a steady breathing pattern by inhaling through the nose and out through mouth helps to relax the pelvic floor muscles to allow for optimal results. This breathing pattern aids in reducing discomfort during a vaginal training session.
During the vaginal training session, it is important to keep actual physical pain to a minimum. If use of the dilator becomes painful, consider taking a break for two minutes and trying again, or going down a dilator size until your body is ready to progress to the next size.
