Vagiwell® are premium quality medical grade silicone dilators made in Germany

The Vagiwell® 6 has been specifically designed for use following MTF gender confirmation surgery.

It is slightly larger than size 5 (available in premium and large sets) and is available for purchase as a single dilator. 


Vagiwell® dilators are uniquely shaped to:

  • assist with easy insertion as the flange is hollowed to allow for a finger or thumb to gently push against.
  • allow you sit upright once inserted which is sometimes desirable when trying to maintain vaginal length eg after radiation therapy
  • the rounded end is ideal to maintain vaginal shape, especially for neo -vaginas and after hysterectomy surgery

Vagiwell® 6 can be used for:

  • maintenance of neo-vagina following gender confirmation surgery
  • for those requiring progression beyond size 5 

Why are Vaginal Dilators Important after Gender Confirmation Surgery?

Post gender confirmation surgery, the body is likely to register the vagina as a wound, and therefore try to heal it. This would result in some shrinkage at the very least – if not total closure and/or development of scar tissue. For this reason, transgender dilation therapy is crucial, it can prevent all of these possibilities from happening.

To maintain the depth and width of the new vagina a dilator is recommended. 

Guidelines for using a Vaginal Dilator after Vaginoplasty:

  • Clean dilator with warm soapy water, then rinse and dry before first use and after every use.
  • Use a water-based lubricant to coat the dilator before insertion
  • Gently insert dilator at a 45 degree angle; when it is under the pubic bone, continue insertion in a straight direction
  • Once inserted fully and experiencing some resistance, leave the dilator in place for ten minutes

The following guidelines are from Kessel Medintim, the manufacturer of Vagiwell® dilators. We would urge you to ask your own surgeon what guidelines to follow as the process can be very individual depending on what surgery has been performed.

  • Dilate three times each day for a period of three months, as soon as the gauze has been removed
  • At between three and six months, use the dilator once per day for ten minutes
  • After six months, use it two or three times per week for ten minutes

After nine months, use it once or twice per week


Vagiwell® 6 includes:

  • Vagiwell®6 dilator
  • storage pouch 
  • water soluble Sylk lubricant 50ml 

Caring for your Vagiwell® dilator

  • Vagiwell® dilators are single-person use only. Do not share them with someone else.
  • wash before first use
  • wash in lukewarm water and mild soap after every use
  • ensure your dilator is dry before storing in the pouch provided
  • only use water-based lubricant with your Vagiwell® dilators as they are made from silicone
