Description

Safe, Simple and Effective Dilation.

Vaginal dilators are crucial tools for vaginismus treatment, not just to help tone vaginal tissue but also to help you more easily develop control over involuntary tightness and simultaneously desensitizing your PC muscles, body and mind to the sensation of penetration.

Dr. Laura Berman's Alena Dilator Set is designed to help you transition to better pelvic control and pain-free sex with three diiferent sizes (the smallest probe is even thinner than a tampon.) The probes are tapered for easy entry and made of medical-grade silicone so they are body-safe, simple to clean and and phthalates free. 

Inserting your vaginal dilator is simple and should not cause any discomfort if you do it slowly and gradually, and always use a water-based lubricant. Start with the smallest size dilator in your kit and increase the size over time as your therapy progresses. Clean your probes (before and after) with soap and water or toy cleaner. 

Product Dimensions: 3" x 0.5" (Dilator 1) 3.5" x 0.75" (Dilator 2) 4.25" x 0.75" (Dilator 3)

How to use Your Vaginal Dilators: Inserting a vaginal dilator is simple. It shouldn’t cause any pain if you do it slowly and gently. This process should take about 10-15 minutes.

Start with the smallest size dilator in your kit. Apply a lubricant to the dilator and the opening of your vagina. Use a water-based lubricant that will help the dilator slide more easily into your vagina. (Don’t use petroleum jelly, oils or silicone-based lubricants.)

  1. Using gentle pressure, slowly insert the round end of the dilator into your vagina. Always insert it in the direction of your spine (back) straight or at a slightly downward angle, like you would insert a tampon.
  2. Continue to insert the dilator slowly until you feel slight discomfort or muscle tension, then stop. The dilator should feel snug but not painful. Never use force and stop if you feel pain. If you don’t feel any pressure when you insert it, you might need to use a larger sized dilator.
  3. Gently push the dilator in and out to stretch the length of your vagina.
  4. Gently rotate the dilator in wide circles to stretch the width of your vagina. Repeat this at the back, middle, and opening of your vagina.
  5.  Stretching should be done at least once per day for 20-30 minutes. As your vagina stretches, you'll be able to withstand more extended amounts of time. Remember that vaginal dilation takes patience!
  6. When you're finished, remove your dilator and clean as instructed.

    Helped tremendously

    Posted by Jean H. on Jul 18th 2018

    My pain issues started in my late 30s. It hurt to walk and even sit down much less have sex. My husband finally convinced me to do something about it at 50 and I finally was diagnosed with primary vaginismus which was a blessing. My pelvic therapy specialist suggested this doing daily exercises with dilators. I won't lie it's not fun. I could not tolerate the hard plastic set that my clinic provided so I chose this set based on its softer feel. In the beginning it hurt terribly because I was such an advanced case but over time (about 4 months) I have worked up to the largest probe. I feel like I have finally regained control of this issue and have even started to become sexually active again. This was not by any means an easy solution but a life changing one.
