Hi LoriB7,
In addition to Heather’s wonderful comment I think it’s great that you found an in between dilator to use. How has dilation been for you since you posted? Understanding that dilation is a process and working with each dilator daily for around a week or so is key. Sometimes it’s helpful to warm up with a size smaller and then insert the larger one. Also, the dilator that you are currently working with may not feel comfortable until you move up in size. You will get there – it’s a process. Try to be gentle with yourself as you move through.
