Q: Can you recommend a vibrator for me?

You say MiddlesexMD has been a valuable resource to you, and you’ve begun to use dilators and lubricants. I’m thankful to hear MiddlesexMD has been helpful to you, and happy to coach you through this next step! We’ve talked about vibrators quite a lot; you can be assured you’re not the only person considering that option! Here are some quick references:

Don’t be intimidated! Read all that’s helpful, stop when you want to, and know that your own experimentation is most important. I recommend you select a vibrator that can be inserted into your vagina. That will provide some of the important benefits to maintaining vaginal health, stimulating circulation, which is good for healthy tissue. You can also use that style externally, directly on the clitoris, as well; that’s where most women need the stimulation to achieve orgasm (and, as you mention, orgasm helps with pelvic floor muscle tone). These are the vibrators we call “mid-size” on our website. I don’t think you’ll have issues with insertion of any of those if you’ve been able to use dilators as you’ve described.

Enjoy! And I’m so glad you’re taking charge of your sexual health--finding your own resources for learning about your body and acting on what you learn.
