Hi Reenie,
So glad you posted! Sounds like you are doing really well with dilation. The discharge may be from hymenal tissue. When you move up to larger dilators this is very common as you haven’t previously encountered the hymen with using tampons – as they are smaller. The burning sensation is “normal” as the purpose of the dilators is to stretch the muscles. If you think about stretching any muscles like during a workout at the gym there’s a burning sensation involved.
Keep us posted on your progress and any struggles or concerns that come your way.
