Hi LoriB7,
How have things been going for you with dilation? When muscles are being stretched it’s usual to experience a sense of “burning”; of course listen to your body if you feel something else is going on (or even to gain reassurance that this is to be expected).Maybe using a small internal vibrator can help massage the area and make dilation more comfortable. Perhaps working with a pelvic floor PT will help as well.
Keep us posted,
