Following radiotherapy to the vagina, cervix or pelvis, a woman may experience some internal scarring (adhesions) to the treated area, which can make the vagina narrower, drier and less elastic. Preventing the formation of scar tissue within the vagina helps ensure that it remains supple so that sexual intercourse and vaginal examinations can be performed without discomfort or pain.
Effective home treatment
Amielle Care vaginal dilators offer an effective way to prevent potential post radiotherapy issues in the privacy and comfort of your home. Used for 5 – 10 minutes, 3 – 4 times a week indefinitely or as recommended by your doctor, the treatment is simple and safe.
Designed to help you build your confidence
Developed in conjunction with The UK National Forum of Gynaecological Oncology Nurses, Amielle Care helps you to build your confidence. Sexual intercourse can also help prevent the formation of scar tissue, but it is not an alternative to using your vaginal dilators. It is important to preserve the intimacy of sexual intercourse.
