This is totally normal! There will be times you feel pain and can’t insert a dilator that you could the previous couple of days – just dilate with a smaller dilator that day (or try the smaller one for a bit, and try the larger one again “run 3“).
Trust your body – like others said, move at your own pace and be patient. My road with dilators was a pretty long one, slow and steady, but in the end I was able to get through all of the dilators just the same 🙂
Sending positive thoughts!
got it. Thanks for the good advice! I appreciate it.
