Use of vaginal dilators for dyspareunia should also be used under the guidance of a medical professional. Recovery rates from the majority of dyspareunia problems are very encouraging, especially with use of comfortable silicone dilators that have been specially designed by a sex therapist and gynecologist for their patients, moisturizers, lubricants and creams.
The medical term for painful intercourse is Dyspareunia (dis-puh-ROO-nee-uh) — which is defined as persistent or recurrent genital pain that occurs just before, during or after intercourse. Talk to your doctor if you're experiencing painful intercourse.

Introduction: While two-thirds of women will experience dyspareunia and vaginal dilators are often used to treat dyspareunia, outside of a single case report, no study has investigated the potential of low-dose, high frequency movement-based dilator therapy for dyspareunia in premenopausal female patients.
Dilator therapy, coupled with some relaxation exercises, can be extremely successful in treating superficial dyspareunia. Stretching the vagina to accommodate a medium to large dilator facilitates intercourse, which also dilates the vagina.
At 3 months, 9.5% of patients reported de novo dyspareunia in the dilator group compared with 19.2% of control patients (P=.44). At 6 months, 12.5% of patients in the dilator group reported de novo dyspareunia compared with 3.8% of control patients (P=.34).
