Hi SarahD! How exciting your baby will be here so soon!! 🙂 You’re going to do great! I definitely second what Melissa said. Dilating is a bit of a burden, but it is sooo beneficial to the well being of the muscles inside the vagina. I myself have not given birth, I have no children, but from all my friends and family who have given birth, they suggest waiting a while before attempting sex. Your body may even need a rest period before you can begin dilating again. Consistency with vaginismus is key, but just as equally important to your success is your ability to listen to what your body needs from you. If you attempt penetrative sex and it hurts or it’s tight or difficult, that will definitely be your sign to continue your dilating. Just be gentle and patient with yourself, listen to your body and you’ll know what to do 🙂 I have also heard that birth does indeed stretch those muscles!
