Your oncologist has recommended dilator therapy
, and you’re wondering which option might be best. You wonder about the colorful dilators with the wider end, thinking they may be easier to hold. Those dilators are great for that reason, and they have a softer surface, which some women like.
The other dilators are a bit longer, so if depth is a consideration, the others can provide a bit of advantage. The Amielle
have an attached handle, which some women find helpful. The set of 5 and 7 are very rigid and a bit longer, which others find an advantage.
We offer options because there can be preferences. In the end, it’s consistent use of whichever product you choose that will likely give the most benefit.
I’m glad you are investing in yourself and working at regaining sexual function and pleasure.
