About Cool Water Cones...

The Cool Water Cone was created by a loving husband to assist his wife through her painful cancer treatment and recovery. Utilizing over 40 years of experience in the field of Hydrocolloids, this revolutionary new product was developed to bring soothing comfort during a difficult time.  Our hope is that Cool Water Cones bring to you this same relief during your time of recovery.

 

Why?

After surgery or radiation on the female reproductive organs, many patients experience a shortened or narrowed vagina. On these occasions, your doctor may suggest the use of a vaginal dilator to help restore and maintain your vaginal health.  Cool Water Cones are a revolutionary new vaginal dilator that may help speed your surgical recovery and may increase your comfort during pelvic exams and intercourse after vaginal trauma.

 

 

When?

Surgery Patients: If you have experienced pelvic surgery, your physician may instruct you to wait until your incision is healed before use.  Continue to use Cones exactly as prescribed.  Your doctor will help determine length and frequency of use.

Radiotherapy Patients: Most women prefer to start using the Cone toward the end of their treatment cycle for cool and soothing relief. If you are not sexually active after radiotherapy, then you should use the Cone twice a week for approximately two-years after treatment is completed.  Following this routine will help restore and maintain the size and shape of your vagina. It should also allow for more comfortable future vaginal examinations and treatments. Your doctor will advise when your Cone is no longer needed.

Which Size?


Cones are available in 4 sizes to meet your specific needs.  We suggest working with your physician to determine the most appropriate cone to use during your treatment.  The small dilator is intended to begin penetration.  It offers soothing relief to burning, wounded or otherwise traumatized tissue. This small cone also allows you to become comfortable with the concept of inserting a foreign object into your own vaginal cavity. Once you are comfortably tolerating the small cone, it then becomes time to move up to the medium size cone.

Our medium cone has more length to the dilator and the change to the width, although still gradual, is significantly larger. The Medium cone after being comfortably tolerated during penetration will be the cone intended for patients to use while performing routine maneuver exercises. It is important to eventually begin applying gentle pressure on the sides of the vaginal walls with the cone. This exercise will continue stretching the vaginal walls for more comfort during future vaginal examinations.

Rotation along with gentle in and out motions are especially helpful if you are trying to prepare yourself to return to being sexually active. We recommend the large cone for that stage of recovery.

It is best to work with your doctor to make the decision as to when each stage, size or exercise is appropriate during your recovery.
