  • Wounds and tears should heal over time unless there is something else biologically wrong even in an area that is always moist.
    I have but one lamp by which my feet are guided, and that is the lamp of experience.
    Shall we gather strength by irresolution and inaction? Shall we acquire the means of effectual resistance by lying supinely on our backs and hugging the delusive phantom of hope, until our enemies shall have bound us hand and foot?

    From a speech by Patrick Henry on March 23, 1775 at St. John's Church, Richmond, Virginia


    • Response to atskitty2: I'm not sure to be honest. I was examined but the gyno who did the checks only really felt my perineum and not any internal examination. I've been very sexually active since 21. Never had any issues before. Never struggled with girth being painful, certainly not with entry. I think they are recommended the dilator as a way of stopping me from tensing up on preparation for entry. I think if i can learn to switch off from the "here it comes, brace yourself" mind set when entered then my pelvic floor will naturally relax and reduce the chances of it happening repetitively. Here's hoping anyway. I've been using it for a week now and it certainly has helped a little already.
