Tools, Not Toys: Understanding Vaginal Dilators for Pelvic Health

One of the first times I ever shared a video featuring Vaginal Dilators on social media, it went viral—it got over a million views! Interestingly, most of these views were from men who likely thought I was sharing about sex toys, not the therapeutic tools that they truly are. Thanks guys for unknowingly helping me spread the word about pelvic floor issues! Haha

The Real Benefits of Vaginal Dilators

I know, they look a lot like toys you might stash away out of sight. However, vaginal dilators are essential tools that can help with various conditions such as pelvic pain, pain during sexual intercourse or activity, vaginismus, vaginal atrophy, post-cancer treatments, or post-surgery recovery.

At The Healing Spot, I prefer the Intimate Rose brand of vaginal dilators and highly recommend them to my patients. They come in 8 different sizes and are made of medical-grade silicone, which is more comfortable than plastic alternatives.

The First Step in Treating Pelvic Pain

While vaginal dilators can be a good tool for treating pelvic pain and other pelvic floor concerns, they’re not always the first step I start with. They can be intimidating and bring up feelings of shame, fear, or disgust for some people. For some, it’s not a treatment option they ever take, and I fully support that decision.

When it comes to treating pelvic pain, what’s important to know is that there are options, and no two people will need the exact same treatment.

Identifying with Pelvic Pain

Does this sound like you?

● Are you worried about pelvic pain that is top of mind day in and day out and doesn’t go away no matter how many hot packs you apply or how much rest you get?

● Does your pelvic pain consume your life and dictate where you go, how long you spend there, and even the type of clothing you can wear?

● Are you frustrated that stretches haven’t worked?

● Are you feeling disconnected from your partner or feeling hopeless in the bedroom because of it?

● Are you looking for a long-term solution so you can feel whole and confident once again?

● Has your doctor been searching for an answer, ordering test after test, and finding nothing to explain your pain?

If so, maybe it’s time you asked a Women’s Health Pelvic Floor Specialist for some help!
