Intimate Rose Silicone Vaginal Dilators were designed by a pelvic floor health physical therapist and are made from a smooth, body safe, medical grade silicone that's 100% BPA free and designed to glide into the vagina for more comfortable use during dilator therapy.
Not only are the Intimate Rose vaginal dilators more comfortable and easier to use, but they are also the only FDA registered vaginal silicone dilator and are used in the official Academy of Pelvic Health training courses.
If you suffer from vaginismus, vaginal atrophy, experience pain during sexual activity and sexual intercourse, or have other medical conditions, vaginal dilation therapy is a viable treatment option. It can not only help patients treat the underlying condition of vaginismus and allow for pain free penetration but can help improve overall sexual health.
To begin dilator therapy with Intimate Rose Vaginal Dilators, we put together an 8-step guide below and before you start with care or any program it's important to ensure you have the right sizes.
When it comes to finding the right sizes to begin pelvic physical therapy training with a vaginal dilator set, you may want to consult physical therapists first and most importantly, listen to your body. However, as a guide, when you can comfortably use a vaginal dilator in multiple positions and with movement, you are ready to move on to the next size. Position changes with the trainer in allow for variation in pelvic floor muscle, pelvic organ, and vaginal canal position.
By practicing using vaginal dilators in different positions such as laying on your back, hands and knees, during deep squat exercises, and lying on your side, your organs shift around the canal and the device and allow for gentle mobilization of the tissue.
Patients can also compress the dilators gently into the walls of the vagina. To do this, you need to imagine that the opening of the vagina is a clock, and gently move the dilator in a slow circular method pausing at each “hour” of the clock to gently press the dilator into the wall of the vagina.
Your medical professional or care provider may have a unique training program for you outside of the recommendations made here. Always contact a professional before starting a new vaginal dilator training program.
A training plan should be set by a medical professional and consist of using a dilator for 15 to 20 minutes daily 5 to 7 times per week. 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 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 a vaginal 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.
There are a number of different types of vaginal dilators for women's health and those suffering from forms of pelvic floor dysfunction that are available to purchase including magnetic, plastic, and silicone. We recommend that you use a silicone vaginal dilator set based on comfort levels and because sets allow you to progress through a larger range of sizes.
