Hi Vee,

That burning sensation is the feeling that is described by most women when they are stretching the vaginal opening.

The burning does usually improve with continued consistent dilation.

Sometimes using lidocaine 5% cream at the vaginal entrance can help reduce the burning and make the dilation more comfortable.

For some women if they still have an intact hymen, that needs to tear in order for dilation to be more comfortable.

I would try lidocaine and dilating more often and see if that helps move past the first two dilators.

You can always consider coming for the Botox Procedure here at Maze. That will significantly help speed up the dilation process.

Keep us posted.
