Hi Bubbly77. Congratulations on your tremendous success in being able to insert Pink #5 pain-free. This is so wonderful. Did you have Dr. Pacik’s procedure? Are you using the new Pacik glass dilators or pure romance set? I find that the glass ones are much more comfortable as they are shorter in length. For the longest time post-procedure, I felt like I had to keep pinching myself to believe that I was now so far from where I had once been. Prior to receiving Dr. Pacik’s Botox treatment program, I could not even insert a q-tip. Post-procedure, despite my tremendous fears of it being impossible, I was pleasantly surprised at the way my body reacted and I was able to insert the dilators and later my hubby pain-free and without the resistance feeling that we had always experienced. Dr. Pacik, Ellen, and all of the amazing staff helped me so, so much with the dilating, counseling, and significant post-procedure support and I thank God every day that my husband and I found and had this treatment. Now, I really enjoy giving back and helping others through my Forum participation and on-line support. Sending you hugs and congrats, again, to you on your tremendous success.
