    I use a dilator.  Recommended by my gyno.  At first I did it several times a day to just keep things open.  Over time a big improvement.  Now I do it only twice a week. 

    ​As a lubricant I use coconut oil.  Intercourse is very well possible again.

    with extensive fusing. There is no doubt doubt that it has helped in terms

    of stretching the dry and atrophied skin but has not reopened the fusing.

    I am using Bicarbonate of soda to address this and also use coconut oil as

    a moisturiser and lubricant. Is your issue, tightness with damaged LS skin or

      A bit of both! Small amount of fusing but mostly nerve damage and tightness around the opening. Will definitely try coconut oil though as a lubricant
