Changing hormone levels can lead to a decrease in vaginal elasticity, as well as narrowing and shortening, causing painful sex. Vaginal dilators, used to gently stretch tissues over time, can restore patency, comfort, and intimacy after menopause. Sex after 50 can be pleasurable!
Vaginal dilator sets are recommended if you experience painful sex, have difficulty with penetration, or would like to make sex after 50 more comfortable. We know many women are challenged to find a place to buy vaginal dilators, so have sought out a variety of types.
The Amielle dilators range in size from .63” to 1 1/2” for progressive vaginal dilation therapy. The smallest cone is 2¾” long without the handle; the largest is 6¼” long before attaching to the handle. Each cone has a silky-smooth finish and a slight taper for easy transition between sizes. Made of medical-grade hard plastic, they can be thoroughly cleaned and are nontoxic and latex-free. Carry/storage bag is included.

Choose to use dilators if you have difficulty with penetration. The cause may be vaginismus (muscle spasms causing vaginal tightness), medical treatment or surgery that has narrowed or shortened the vagina, or menopause, which can itself narrow or shorten the vagina.
These dilators are firm enough to be easy to insert, and the range of sizes is practical for regaining vaginal capacity.

Do not use silicone lubricants with these dilators.
Use care when storing; dilators should be separated from each other in storage to avoid degrading surface.

Choose to use dilators if you have difficulty with penetration. The cause may be vaginismus (muscle spasms causing vaginal tightness), medical treatment or surgery that has narrowed or shortened the vagina, or lack of use throughout menopause, which can also narrow or shorten the vagina. Choose the set of seven if you want to be certain of comfortable penetration, since the additional dilators are larger.
