Dilation and Water - Mortal Enemies? [Oct. 23rd, 2008|03:16 pm]
Male to Female, however you choose to say it


I've noticed in the past that if I get water in my vagina (say, for example, I stick a finger up there in the bath), any subsequent dilation is harder for a short while. The water seems to *increase* friction and tighten things up in there, and I guess it probably washes the lube off too (I use aquagel which is water based).

Yesterday afternoon, I went swimming and did a thousand metres, breast stroke. Yesterday evening I dilated, and had the hardest time getting the stent in that I've had for ages. I had to really shove it, which was a little painful, despite relaxing the pelvic floor muscles. Everything was just so incredibly tight and tense up there.

Anyone else get anything similar?

That is a stonkingly good point.

Hmm, perhaps this calls for pushing a blob of lube up there afterwards, and just leaving it.

That, or not using breast stroke any more.

Not being much of a swimmer, I'm puzzled by the link between the style of stroke and how likely you are to get water inside (unless 'bombing' is classed as a stroke!)

The legs ... they go sideways. It opens things up...

Hmm, I remember one of my school friends had a fancy new filter system on their pool that they were telling me about a year ago. It meant there were no additives in the water, but I can't remember if it was based on silver filters, or some sort of UV bombardment. I don't know whether this may have made it's way to any public/pseudo-public (e.g. gyms) down your way.
