Starting dilating again after 15 years post op

I had my GRS in 2005 and at that time I dilated religiously , but since I have not engaged in intercourse being in a same sex relationship, I am kinda afraid to start dilating again in fear I might hurt myself. I can stick my pinky in, but that’s about it. Has anyone else tried to resume dilation after a long absence?

Hi Laura Marie, You're very lucky you can still dilate with a pinky after many years with no dilating. My good friend had her GRS in 2015 and stopped dilating after a few months. It closed up on her and she had to go in for corrective surgery last August.  She had a slow recovery from that and now has full depth again. She’s only had a few small issues but overall is doing great now. Have you discussed this with your doctor?

Laura I don't had personal experience but I have read of women having to restart after many years.  The only advise is to start very slowly.  Susan's advise to contact your doctor (who performed your surgery) is a good one.

I am going to start slowly with my smallest dilator and go from there. My surgeon is no longer practicing, he quit 10 years or so ago. I would have to find another doctor which I will if I need to.  Thanks girls for your advise!

I have goofed off here for a few months at 7 years and a friend of mine pointed out that the Soul Source company that makes the most widely used dilators, also makes a line of dilators for women with Vaginismis and they are smaller in diameter than our more common GCS dilators.  I use my smallest of the GCS sticks, but the Vaginismis dilators would probably work to get you started.

Thank you so much for that info, Vicky!
