Vaginal dilation therapy is typically known to help with pelvic pain and dyspareunia (pain with intercourse).
Sometimes women have underlying medical conditions or reasons that may cause pelvic pain or dyspareunia. Conditions or causes including but not limited to previous trauma, neurological conditions, vaginal infections (i.e., urinary tract or yeast infections), and scar tissue from cancer treatment or medical surgeries.
Whatever the case, pelvic pain and dyspareunia affect the pelvic floor muscles. When this occurs, vaginal dilation therapy is one approach used by healthcare professionals with their patients to help stretch, relax, and gradually expand these muscles.
Vaginal dilators, also called vaginal trainers or vaginal expanders, are products found “off-the-shelf” and can be used independently, at-home by women.
Dr. Stacy Sutton of Sutton Health Advocacy covers vaginal dilation therapy with pelvic pain further in Part 2 of the series The Ins and Outs of Dilators. Watch this video about Dr. Stacy’s use of vaginal dilators in her practice to help patients with pelvic pain and pain with intercourse.
