VAGINAL MAPPING WITH USE OF DILATOR
It can be a bit difficult to know where your pain sits. Why it is a good idea to map your vagina for pain spots.
You’ll need some coordinates, so imagine the following:
Divide the vagina into three zones:
- Zone 1 is the first few centimetres, equivalent to the 1st finger joint
- Zone 2 is the middle part, equal to the 2nd finger joint
- Zone 3 is the rest of the vagina
Add a time coordination:
- 12 o’clock is the clitoris
- 6 o’clock is the rectum
- From 10 to 2: to be avoided; here you find urethrae etc.
- From 2 to 10: register your observations
Recognize that the vaginal tissue consists of three layers. All three layers must be investigated by gradually pressing harder with the dilator. Do not touch too hard. Rate your pain from 1-5, 1 being no pain at all, and five complete agonies. Note your observations.
Choose a dilator size possible for you to work with and utilize it while mapping your vagina. Use it between 2 o’clock and 6 o’clock and between 6 o’clock and 10 o’clock. Map through all three zones and layers.
