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 dilators are recommended if you experience painful sex, have difficulty with penetration, or would like to make sex after 50 more comfortable.
Able to be sterilized, these are used for progressive dilation therapy to treat pelvic floor dysfunction. The set of seven includes these diameters, all in inches: 1/2, 11/16, 7/8, 1, 1 1/8, 1 1/4, 1 3/8.
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.
