Hi lillyahmed – how has the dilation been going? There can definitely be more of a learning curve with dilators for the reasons Melissa said (and also because they’re more rigid than a penis or finger or other part of your body would be. The burning sensation takes getting used to but is totally normal. It’s sort of like how after you exercise, your muscles feel sore and achey – that’s just the feeling of them being pushed beyond their limits and needing to heal stronger. Your vagina is doing the same thing, so just remember that when you feel that sensation, it’s your vagina learning to stretch and grow!
