Do you have fear or anxiety about inserting the dilators?

It sounds like you have a gynecologist who is willing to work with you. Do you feel comfortable bringing your dilators to her office and seeing if she can help you insert them. This can be very helpful, especially if you are having any fear about pushing the dilators in all the way.

The botox should be working to freeze the muscles, but you still need to dilate to lengthen and stretch the muscles.

You could also see if she can give you a little lidocaine to use at the vaginal entrance to numb the area a little bit, that can also help reduce the pain and discomfort with first insertion of the dilators.
