Handy how to use guide for Amielle Care
Amielle dilators were designed to provide a gentle self-treatment option for women experiencing painful sexual intercourse (Amielle Comfort), and to help women alleviate medical conditions affecting the vaginal structure, following radiotherapy to the vagina, cervix or pelvis (Amielle Care). Amielle sets come in a discreet bag, and offer effective treatment in the privacy and comfort of your own home, where you can dictate the pace of treatment. These products are also available on prescription.
A self-treatment for post pelvic radiotherapy adhesions and scarring. Developed in conjunction with The UK National Forum of Gynaecological Oncology Nurses, Amielle Care vaginal dilators help to reduce the risk of scarring and offer an effective way for women to take an active role in their treatment.
Using vaginal dilators, such as Amielle Care can help prevent this formation of scar tissue. Amielle Care dilators have a flat top to reach up to the cervix, ensuring a reach to the areas where scar tissue might form. Amielle Care is usually given to women who have received radiotherapy to the upper part of their vagina due to the shape of the dilators.
- Radiotherapy to the upper part of the vagina can cause the vagina to narrow, become drier and less elastic due to scar tissue formation. 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.
