Q: What vibrator do you recommend for a first-time user?

You say you don't currently have a partner, and were diagnosed with premature menopause before your last relationship ended. I’m with you on hoping for another romance in your future!

You asked. Dr. Barb answered.In the situation you describe, the best vibrator is one you can use internally (place inside the vagina). This will improve blood supply to the vagina and surrounding tissues and keep the vagina patent (medical term for open) and more elastic, until you have a partner. Probably the best designed vibrator for this would be the Liv2 or the Raya. The Liv2 is rechargeable and has a bit more intensity in its vibration (important for post-menopausal women), but either could work well. These vibrators can also be used externally, in direct contact with the clitoris, as well as internally.

Along with these you’ll want to use a water based lubricant. Any of these could work well for you; our most popular are Yes WB and Almost Naked.  

You mentioned that you’re also using Vagifem as a localized estrogen. It’s a good idea to continue that for vaginal tissue health. And I’m so glad you’re putting the effort into maintaining and regaining sexual health!
