Hi Jaclynfich! It can be normal to have phases where dilation is harder than normal – it can be related to your menstrual cycle or other bodily changes that affect your vagina. I would personally recommend dropping back to a smaller size that’s comfortable to keep in the dilation habit and start working your way up again as the discomfort fades, but if you’re still feeling a lot of pain at a smaller size, it’s better to rest and take days off than to build another negative association with penetration and pain! Hope it helps, let us know if this works for you!
