I used Xyloaid jelly which is Lidocaine 2%, however I think you should first ask your therapist about it, or maybe wait for some moderator or admin in the group to respond. Yeah I first applied lubricant which was petroleum jelly and then I applied this lubricant on top of it. Also, when you insert your dilator, if it is very painful, don’t push it through. Wait for your muscles to relax. Practise deep breathing alongside dilation. It will help you to relax.
If you have any other questions, don’t hesitate to ask. You are always welcome, and this group is actually great. I made it through vaginismus because of this group.
