I had my procedure on 6-9 and I’ve been doing well with dilating with glass 4 & 5! Today (which I have before 2x after about 1/2 a box) I put in a tampon! After about 5 tampons and a a shaky nervous body 5 tries later it finally went in! Yay I’m soo happy I know I’ve done it before bit it was sooo long ago I don’t remember the feeling. No more sucky summers by the pool or ocean I can enjoy swimming and swimsuits now this summer. Try it when you get your period after dilating your going to be excited how easy it is to insert. I’m only a day into my period so used tampex pearl (with application and a little lube) lights. I’m a little nervous to pull it out but I know it will be ok. They come in so many light, regular, heavy, super. Girls don’t be afraid to use them! After dilating I look at my periods in a whole new way!!!!
