Rectal dilators can be a game-changer for treating rectal pain, radiation fibrosis due to pelvic cancer radiation, or pain with backdoor play.

Rectal Dilators

Many find success using rectal dilators for constipation, fissures, fecal incontinence, complications from Crohn’s Disease/IBD, and painful anal intercourse. Those with anal stenosis or scar tissue following cancer treatment (chemotherapy, radiation, surgery) for anal, colon, ovarian, uterine, cervical, vulvar, and sometimes breast cancer also find treatment with a rectal dilator useful.
