Amielle Care Vaginal Dilators
Amielle Care Dilators
What is the difference between Amielle Comfort Basic, Amielle Comfort 5 Pack and Amielle Care?
Amielle Comfort and 5 pack are essentially the same, the difference being that the 5 pack has an extra dilator - the smaller size 0 - and comes with a storage purse and tube of Aquagel lubricating jelly. The dilator shape is the same, rounded on the end. These are more suited to those requiring progressive vaginal dilation, for example vaginismus.
Amielle Care is a 4 dilator pack, like the Basic, but is a different shape to Comfort and 5 pack . The end is squared off and is more specifically designed for maintaining vaginal shape and length following radiation therapy for any cancers in the pelvic region.
Amielle Care are designed with a squared end and were developed in coonjunction with oncology nurses for use after radiation treatment.
Amielle Care vaginal dilators have been designed to greatly reduce your risk of scarring and assist you in keeping your vagina supple. This will help reduce any long term discomfort from follow up examinations, further treatments and sexual activity.
Amielle Vaginal Dilators are long-established favourite dilator sets, internationally recognised as a user-friendly and good value vaginal product for women suffering from vaginismus, vulvodynia, dyspareunia and following treatment for cancer.
Amielle Care Vaginal Dilators offer an effective way for you to take an active role in your treatment in the privacy and comfort of your own home. Designed in conjunction with psychosexual therapists, Amielle Comfort vaginal dilators help you to familiarise yourself with your body and help to build confidence at a pace that best suits you.
With four graduated sizes available in the set you are able to take control of your treatment until you feel able to progress to each size.
Produced and distributed by a major British medical manufacturer, using medical grade plastics, they are a quality product that meets appropriate standards for vaginal use. Amielle Vaginal Dilators are widely recommended by clinicians and health care professionals.
They are easily cleaned in soapy water, or Milton solution if preferred, and we recommend cleaning before use.
Basic user information is provided in the instruction leaflet. Women who need more guidance in using Amielle Care vaginal dilators for post surgical, radiation or chemotherapy and related conditions are encouraged to discuss their needs with their appropriate health professional. We send an additional instructional sheet out with each set, on how to use your vaginal dilators , written by our women's health physiotherapist.
