What is a vaginal dilator?

A vaginal dilator, also referred to as a vaginal trainer, is a cylindrical tube-shaped device used to stretch and lengthen the vagina. BioMoi vaginal dilators are made of antimicrobial silicone and, when paired with vaginal dilation therapy, can be used to relieve symptoms from vaginal conditions that affect the pelvic floor muscles

What is vaginal dilation therapy?

Vaginal dilation therapy is a nonsurgical remedy to regain natural vaginal elasticity and capacity, while also providing relief from difficult or painful intercourse, as well as other vaginal conditions such as vaginismus and vulvodynia. Using a vaginal dilator gradually over time stretches the vagina and strengthens the pelvic floor muscles while alleviating pain.

Is vaginal dilator therapy right for me?

Vaginal Dilators are recommended by gynecologists, surgeons, urogynecologists, pelvic floor physical therapists, sex therapists, and marital and family therapists. Vaginal dilator therapy is prescribed to remedy various conditions, such as:

  • Vaginal dryness and tightening as a result of menopause
    We recommend that you do not self-diagnose nor self-treat and that you undergo a thorough medical and pelvic exam with your doctor.

  • How do I know which dilator size I should use?

    The dilator that you should start with is the one you can insert without feeling pain or resistance. This also depends on the condition you are treating with vaginal dilator therapy. Speak to your Ob/Gyn, physical therapist, or health care provider about  what size vaginal dilator is right for you.

    How often can I use the dilators?

    BioMoi vaginal dilators will produce the best results when used several times a week. While safe to use on a daily basis, we recommend you skip a day between therapy sessions to avoid irritation.

    I suffer from vaginal dryness, will using a dilator be painful?

    You should always apply a water-based lubricant when using a vaginal dilator. Apply liberally to the dilator and to the opening of your vagina. You can also apply more during the session if you feel friction.

    You can also regularly use vaginal moisturizers inside your vagina and on the vulva, right before bedtime to ensure maximum absorption.
