Hi lilly103099,
First of all Congratulations on inserting your first dilator – that’s a win! Dilation is a practice and it’s best to find a comfortable time and space to do it daily. Organic coconut oil is a good lube to use and be generous with it. Generally the sensation felt with muscle stretching is a “burning” sensation similar to the feeling of a vigorous work out. Of course if the discomfort persists follow up with your physician. Let us know how we can continue to support you in your process.
