"Do I do the dilation exercise every day and the suppositories on the same days as the dilation or on days when I do not use the dilator?"
You can do the dilation every day when you are using NeuEve. However, it is better to do it before inserting a NeuEve suppository. This will allow 24 hours for absorption of the suppository ingredients.
Please do not do the dilation immediately after your insert a suppository. This may cause loss of some suppository ingredients by sticking to the dilator. After 24 hours of the suppository insertion, you can do the daily dilation without a problem.
On the second day when you do the dilation exercise, some suppository ingredients may still stick to the dilator, but most of the nutrients have been absorbed. The loss will be negligible.
Tips about using dilators:
1) Avoid overstretching. It is understandable that one may wish to move up the sizes quickly to get a more rapid recovery. However, this can be counterproductive. The recovery of vaginal atrophy is a slow process. Moving up the dilator sizes too quickly or skipping sizes can cause overstretching, which in turn can tear the atrophied tissue to cause injuries. Please do not skip the sizes and try the largest dilator first. Please be patient and do the exercise with a stepwise increment to avoid possible injuries due to overstretching. Please give one size dilator at least 3-4 weeks to allow tissue to catch up the growth before moving up to the next size.
2) Preventing UTI. Physically, dilation exercise is like sexual intercourse. The penetration movement can mobilize bacteria normally on the skin into the bladder to cause UTI. You will need to pee immediately after each exercise to prevent UTI. Urination can flush out any bacteria that entered the bladder during the dilation exercise. Therefore, drinking a lot of water before exercise helps build up the urinating flushing pressure and prevent UTI.
