I have started using the smallest dilator. I find it easiest to sit and spread my legs so I can use a mirror and see where to direct it. I can insert it easily, I dont feel pain and I dont feel like I am stressed/nervous, but after it is in place I start to feel like I am going to faint (heart rate increases, head goes light).
Does this mean I shouldnt progress to the next dilator? Or is the fainting (even though there isnt any pain) an indicator that I should stick with the current dilator?
