Vagiwell Instructions For Use

Indications:

  • –  Dyspareunia (recurring or constant genital pain during sexual intercourse) of different causes, e.g.:

    • –  vaginitis (inflammation of the vagina)

    • –  adnexitis (combined inflammation of the fallopian tubes,

      ovaries and surrounding tissue)

    • –  vaginal stenosis

    • –  endometriosis

  • –  vaginismus (tightening of the vaginal muscles)

  • –  scarring following surgical cuts to the perineum (episiotomy) or

    perineal tears

  • –  subsequent to gynaecological operations (e.g. prolapse surgery or

    cancer operations)

  • –  during and after radiotherapy/chemotherapy

  • –  after vaginal surgery involving tightening of the vagina

    and scarring

  • –  skin conditions such as certain lichen forms, e.g. lichen sclerosus - vaginoplasty/neovagina (e.g. during sex reassignment surgery)
    - narrowness of the vagina (virginity) described as a sexual

    impediment by those affected.

    Stretching exercises with the Vagiwell® dilators can also be useful in making gynaecological examinations or the insertion of tampons less painful.

Application:

The aim of the exercises is to desensitise the vagina by slowly stretching it, thereby making sexual intercourse pain-free (once more) and gynaecological examinations a painless experience.
Do the exercises in a place where you feel comfortable and are relaxed. Make sure that neither the telephone nor anything else will disturb you while you are carrying out the exercises.

  1. Prior to use, wash the Vagiwell® dilators with hot water and a mild soap and dry them thoroughly.

  2. Find a relaxed sitting or lying position that allows you to spread your legs slightly. For inserting the dilators, we recommend lying flat on your back with your knees bent and your legs spread slightly apart. You can, however, also use the dilators standing up, with one leg on a chair. Start with the smallest dilator.

  3. Lubricate the entrance to the vagina and the dilator with a water-soluble lubricant gel.

  4. Breathe calmly. Gently push the dilator into the vagina. You should only insert the dilator as far in as is comfortable for you. Should this be painful, you may be using too much pressure.

  5. Leave the dilator in the vagina or in the entrance to the vagina for a few minutes.

  6. After that, insert and remove the dilator, without fully taking the dilator out of the vagina. Repeat this movement approx. 5 times. Then slowly start moving the dilator with a slight rotating movement: rotate the dilator 5 times to the right and 5 times to the left. After that, move the dilator 5 times to the right and times to the left. These movements help to gently dilate the vaginal tissue.

7. When you want to finish the stretching exercise, remove the dilator from the vagina. Remain lying down and relax for a few minutes more.

Once you are able to insert one size comfortably, your vagina has stretched far enough for you to be able to use the next largest dilator. When changing from one size to the next one up, the most recently used dilator should first be inserted and left in the vagina for a few minutes. Proceed with the next largest dilator as described above. The stretching exercises may be repeated three to four times a week. Once you are able to comfortably insert the largest dilator, you can consider having sexual intercourse.

Cleaning and disinfection

The Vagiwell® dilators are intended for single-patient use. After use, wash the dilator(s) with warm water and mild soap. Make sure that the dilator(s) is/are dry before putting it/them back in the storage pouch. In the event of infection and/or for cleaning purposes, the Vagiwell® dilators may be boiled for 10 minutes in boiling water. Commercial disinfectants may be used to disinfect the dilators.
