I second what Ettina says – it’s completely safe, just a more elaborate cleanup. But yes, if dilating is too uncomfortable you don’t want to reinforce the pain response to having something penetrate you, so don’t push through it at all costs if it’s truly uncomfortable. I think it’s definitely worth trying to at least use a small size to stay in the habit, but listen to what your body is telling you. Perfectly safe to do though!
