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?

I wouldn't worry too much, this person had her groin job back in the days when genital electro wasn't mandatory, and wasn't easily available, hence she didn't have any.

Back then, a lot of people got away without having electro. I didn't have it, and other than sticking a few fingers up there to pull out a few hairs every few months, I'm fine.

The reason the UK surgeons tend to insist on it these days for private patients is precisely because of cases like above. I'm sure if you've had a few sessions, you've nothing to worry about.
