What are the differences between Magnetic and Non Magnetic Dilators?

Magnetic Vaginal Dilators vs Nonmagnetic Dilators – Why are the magnets important? 

Author: VuVaTech 


A vaginal dilator is a pelvic health device that is most commonly used by women with sexual pain syndromes. With regular use of dilators the vaginal tissues become more flexible, you can begin using wider dilators to become progressively more comfortable. Vaginal dilators come in kits with different size dilators ranging from small (about the size of your small finger) to large  Some kits also come with a handle to make it easier to hold the dilator while you’re using it

Vaginal Dilators have been utilized in the plan of care for patients that suffer from pelvic pain conditions for decades. Unfortunately, this safe treatment with usually no side effects isn’t the first option presented to women who suffer from painful sex. Usually harmful medications and surgery are presented often in the beginning of seeking treatment. Not only do medications mask the pain, they usually have unsafe side effects.

Pelvic Floor Physical Therapists know the importance of using dilators for their pelvic floor patients. Pelvic Floor PT's use dilator therapy along with manual therapy to help relax your pelvic floor muscles. Vaginal Dilators are known to be a relatively safe treatment with really side effects. 

VuVa Dilators are the only dilators containing a patented Neodymium Magnet sleeve. Regular vaginal dilators without magnets are still going to be beneficial, but VuVa Magnetic Dilators are proven to work faster in reducing your pelvic pain. 


So what's the big difference? What are Neodymium magnets? 


While most dilators are just pieces of plastic, VuVa Dilators contain over 60 magnets in a full set of five dilators. Neodymium magnets are a member of the Rare Earth magnet family and are the most powerful permanent magnets in the world. They are also referred to as NdFeB magnets, or NIB, because they are composed mainly of Neodymium (Nd), Iron (Fe) and Boron (B).

There is a sleeve with many Neodymium magnets that are hand positioned in the correct direction with the north side of the magnet facing outward. 

Magnetic Therapy is based on the premise that all living organisms exist in a magnetic field, including the human body. The human body generates its own magnetic field. Therefore, the body can heal itself when electromagnetic energy is in balance. You may feel a warm sensation when you use our magnetic dilators, that is the blood flow to pelvic region. 

This safe and positive manipulation of muscle tissue helps trigger increased delivery of oxygen and nutrients into the bloodstream. This in turn not only speeds up blood circulation, but also means that muscles are now getting adequate oxygen and nutrients as well, eliminating pain.

What happens when you use a VuVa Magnetic Vaginal Dilator?

Soft tissue lengthens, relaxing muscles and ligaments. As the tissue relaxes, the Neodymium magnets increase blood flow to the painful area calming nerves. VuVa™ Magnetic Vaginal Dilators are the only patented dilators available with Neodymium magnets.

The “North Pole” of a Neodymium magnet is often referred to by medical researchers as the “healing side” of the magnet. The VuVa™ Vaginal Dilator set contains over sixty strategically positioned Neodymium magnets that allow this field of soothing energy to flow into the body.

Iron is a component of our blood content and every ion – or atom – contained in our cells carries oxygen and produces an electrical impulse. These two elements make up our bodies own electrical magnetic field.

This means when the negative north side of a magnet is placed next to a painful area, it draws fresh oxygenated blood to the nerves and surrounding muscles. This, in contrast, is a positive energy field. The positive energy field creates two results: as magnets are alkaline, it counteracts any acidity in the body caused by disease and fresh blood helps to remove any acidity from the body which, in turn, accelerates healing while reducing pain.


Clinical Trials

VuVa Vaginal Dilators are the only dilators on the market with a clinical trial conducted by Dr. Micheal Swor M.D, a Pelvic Pain Specialist Gynecologist.

  1. Eighty percent (80%) of study subjects reported a decrease in overall pain after using the VuVa™ magnetic vaginal dilators.
  2. Subjects using the VuVa™ magnetic vaginal dilators experienced an average thirty percent (30%) decrease in pain levels on a standardized tampon test, which is a way to clinically measure pain associated with sexual intercourse.
  3. The cotton swab test evaluates eleven (11) different locations of the vulvar vestibule for pain. Eighty percent (80%) of the study subjects reported a decrease in the total number of locations after using the VuVa™ magnetic vaginal dilators.
  4. Subjects using the VuVa™ magnetic vaginal dilators experienced an average twenty eight percent (28%) decrease in pain levels using a standardized cotton swab test, which is a non-invasive measure of vaginal pain.

Overall anxiety associated with vaginal penetration is significantly decreased in all subjects.

Subjects report feeling more confident about their sexual health in the future after completing the study.

Subjects report that VuVa dilator therapy is not a painful treatment.
