What to do when dilators are not available in your country?

I am writing this post for all those women who have no access to dilators in their country. In some countries like Pakistan etc., dilators are not available. You can buy dilators on Amazon but it is not available in some countries. Moreover, if you buy dilators through some other website, the shipping charges would be so high that you won’t be able to afford them. So if you are struggling with this issue and feel utterly hopeless, do not give up. What you can do is to use some household objects like cosmetic bottles etc. as dilators (but remember hygeine is very important). For those who are just starting, let me tell you that I could not even insert one finger without pain so I took a mascara bottle of mine which was round and very thin and used it as my first dilator. It may sound weird to many people but remember that there is no shame in curing yourself. If you want to get cured, you have to take some measures. So after using some thin object, find other objects that are a little bigger in size and move progressively. However, you should always keep your dilators clean because you don’t want to get an infection. I used to wash mine before and after dilating with lukewarm water and antibacterial soap. The journey will be tough but it is not impossible. I have done it before you and got cured in 5 months so can you. I went from inserting one finger with burning pain to normal intercourse in 5 months.
You can also read my journey in the “Difficulty Dilating” post to see how tough it was for me but how with the incredible support of this forum, I was finally cured. 🙂
Some other helpful tips already mentioned in this forum:
1. Use Lidocaine in the first few months of dilation to reduce pain.
2. Take deep breaths to reduce anxiety during dilation.
3. Do reverse kegel exercises during dilation.
4. Listen your body. Don’t force or push it.
If there are any mistakes in this post, experts and moderators are most welcome to correct it. 🙂
