Since starting dilation I tried out the mid-size dilator once then retreated to the smaller dilator. Today I got the courage to step up to the mid-size dilator and let me say it is very painful and not looking forward to the next time I need to use it but must as I need to get comfortable with the mid-size then move to the eek full-size.

They say, start with the smaller one then after five minutes remove it for the mid-size and let me tell you that is what I am going to do as the pain level was about a five using 0-10 for a pain scale.

Anyways it has been two hours since my dilation and still feeling after pain from using the mid-size dilator.

Left to right, blue is small, green is mid-size, orange is large. Trust me when I say they are vastly different in width.
