I recently started physical therapy for my pelvic floor issues. Before starting physical therapy, I was able to work up to the largest dialator in my set starting with smaller ones in the same session. However, it is still always difficult at initial insertion. Will this ever go away? Should I expect PT to take a few months, or even longer? I know it varies per person but it is difficult to feel like I’m making any real progress. Thank you
PT should help target the tightest muscles and help further treat the pelvic floor when dilation alone is not enough. Usually 8-12 session is average.
You might also benefit from getting diazepam suppositories from your gynecologist. Diazepam is a muscle relaxant, and when compounded into a suppository, can help relax the muscles and make dilation and PT more effective.
