Vaginal dilators are used to slowly and gradually increase the size of the vaginal opening and to increase the width and depth of the vagina. They can be helpful for menopausal women who want to keep the vagina comfortable, more elastic, and in good condition for vaginal sex, as well as those who want to resume sexual activity after many years. They may be very helpful for patients who have undergone pelvic radiation or surgery that has resulted in a shortened, dry vagina. Many women also use dilators to work on pelvic floor strength.
Vaginal dilators come in a set of gradually increasing sizes. Some of those featured here include vibration for more pleasurable training sessions.
