Soul Source GRS vaginal dilators have been developed in conjunction with a leading surgeon to help transgender women following Genital Reconstruction Surgery (GRS) (also known as Gender Confirmation Surgery (GCS), Genital Reassignment Surgery (GRS), Sex Reassignment Surgery (SRS)). 

Dilation therapy is a very important part of your post operative care as dilators are used to maintain the integrity and depth of the vagina post surgery. Soul Source GRS vaginal dilators are made in the USA and recommended by surgeons throughout the world. They are exclusively available here in the UK at Pelvic Relief.

What Makes Them Unique

Soul Source GRS vaginal dilators are extremely smooth and perfectly shaped to address the specific anatomical needs of GRS patients. When dilating, the curves should be directed upwards to allow the tip to glide beneath the pubic bone with pressure always away from the rectum.

Soul Source GRS vaginal dilators have useful markers thereby helping you know how your dilation therapy is progressing and allowing you to communicate easily with your surgeon or nurse specialist. 

Medical professionals use and recommend Soul Source GRS vaginal dilators to break up adhesions and prevent scar contracture from forming post surgery, helping trans women to improve their physical health by maintaining the integrity and depth of the vagina.

Care Guide

The dilators are stable from -45 degrees to +70 degrees Celsius and they may be chilled if being used for post-surgical swelling or used at room temperature.

Clean your dilator thoroughly before use. To do this wash thoroughly with mild soap and warm water. Rinse thoroughly and air dry or pat dry with a clean paper towel or cotton cloth.

Remember DO NOT place trainers in boiling water as this will weaken the material and distort its shape.

Instructions for use

All orders are shipped discreetly arriving in unmarked boxes. Each dilator comes with it's own purple storage pouch.

Soul Source GRS Dilators

Soul Source Dilators for GRS Patients Post Operative Care

Soul Source is the specialist manufacturer of dilators for dilation therapy for individuals post Gender Reconstruction Surgery (GRS) often described as Feminisation Surgery, Gender Confirmation Surgery (GCS) Sex Reassignment Surgery (SRS) or Male to Female Surgery (MTF) and has become a trusted name in the medical community. Post surgical dilation therapy will help to maintain the width and depth of the vaginal canal, preventing scar tissue from forming and ensuring the neo vagina remains functional and comfortable. The curved design of these rigid dilators allows for easier insertion under the pubic bone. This design consideration enhances comfort and reduces the risk of injury or discomfort during use.

The Soul Source GRS dilators were designed in conjunction with world renowned Gynaecologist Dr Marci Bowers M.D. Dr Bowers is acknowledged as a pioneer in Gender Affirmation Surgery with more than 29 years experience. Dr Bowers highlights the importance of post-operative care in patients post surgery, 

"Using well-designed, skin-safe dilators like those from Soul Source can significantly impact the healing process and overall success of the surgery." Dr Marci Bowers M.D.

Curved Design and Practical Benefits

The carefully engineered shape and material of these dilators help facilitate a smoother, more effective dilation process, which is vital for long-term physical health and well-being.

The curved design of Soul Source GRS dilators makes them uniquely suited to meet the post operative needs of patients post GRS surgery. It allows individuals to navigate the natural contours of the body more easily, reducing pressure against the pubic bone and minimising discomfort. They also come with depth markers for individuals to monitor progress and communicate more easily with their surgical team. This thoughtful design can make a significant difference in the ease of use and the effectiveness of the therapy.

Therapeutic Importance of Vaginal Dilation Therapy

Regular use of dilators helps keep the vaginal tissues flexible and prevents complications that may arise from surgery. Soul Source dilators are designed to facilitate this process gently and effectively. It is important to follow the schedule provided by your surgical team and individual dilation schedules may vary depending on your individual needs. So, please discuss your individual needs with your healthcare professional. However many schedules will include the following important steps:

Clean your dilator thoroughly before use. To do this wash thoroughly with mild soap (you can use YES vulval cleanse for this purpose) and warm water. Rinse thoroughly and air dry or pat dry with a clean paper towel or cotton cloth. 

Remember DO NOT place trainers in boiling water as this will weaken the material and distort its shape. 

Apply generous amounts of lubricant to the dilator and on your vagina. We highly recommend YES OB oil based lubricant it has a sublime consistency and natural antibacterial properties. YES WB water based lubricant has a very natural feel and is another excellent choice.

To make yourself feel comfortable, recline in a supported position with your knees slightly bent. Take your time, make sure you have privacy and are able to fully relax your pelvic floor muscles.

Start with the smallest dilator and with the curve facing forwards, gently insert the dilator into the vagina at an angle of 45 degrees until under the pubic bone, and then continue inserting straight inward.

Try breathing into your belly to help aid relaxation. Stop immediately if there is too much resistance or severe pain.

Insert the dilator into the full depth of the vagina (until you feel moderate pressure or resistance) and leave in place for 10 to 15 minutes. The white dots on the Soul Source dilator are placed as markers to help you record insertion depth and allow you to communicate freely with your surgical team.

Most schedules will include dilating around three times daily for three months starting on the day the vaginal packing is removed. Your schedule will then move you through to a larger size of dilator starting with the smallest and moving onto the next graded dilator size after a period of dilating.

As you progress through your programme dilation frequency will reduce to a few times per week. If the vagina begins to feel tight, you may wish to discuss this with your surgical team and they may recommend increasing the frequency of the dilation schedule.

Remember to clean your dilator after each use, dry thoroughly and store in the purple pouch provided.
