I was diagnosed with Vaginismus a few days ago and given dilators but I’m really confused on where to start. I’ve been married/sexual active for 3 and a half years. I was able to use tampons, have a gynecological exam and have intercourses, it was just always painful.

I don’t understand how dilators will help me, since I already know they will fit inside me. Do I start with a larger size? Should I still be using the smallest ones for a specific amount of time? My doctor’s instructions weren’t that clear!
