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?

Re: umm

I was under the impression that after a extended period of time the "trans" vag takes on the properties of a natal one. and actually my gyno, could not feel any difference when she did my pelvic exam. sure less then a few years after surgery i would have to agree with you the vag is skin, but after a few years that skin adapts to it's new home, otherwise how to explain lubrication in the "trans" vag? or other natal properties the vag takes on after a while? Certainly the skin which was used to make the vag did not have those properties before. anyways, it would interesting if someone studied this issue, I have only my own experience and some stuff I have read on the subject.
