The Times - Get Tight for Life…and Revitalised!

Kegel8 In The Times

Get Tight for Life…and Revitalised!

Wow! What a week! With the hit of the The Sunday Times' Style Magazine article on Sunday 20 March (Click here to read the article), the phones in the Kegel8 office have been hot, hot, hot!

Women are really rallying together as our mission to raise awareness of pelvic floor problems begins to make ears prick-up with cries of 'hey yeah, I suffer from that'; from incontinence and prolapse to lack of satisfaction in the (ahem…) bedroom department…for both parties!

These are not just 'old women problems' or a 'consequence of pregnancy' - they happen to young, single women too. And they are certainly not 'just part and parcel of being a woman' - although mother-nature gave us plenty we just have to accept, incontinence is NOT included!

At long last we can stop shying away from our pelvic flaws and get to work on changing them…actually, even better than that, Kegel8 can get to work on changing them while we relax!

A Kegel8 pelvic floor exerciser applies an electronic pulse to your pelvic muscles (or kegel muscles) causing them to tense and relax intermittently with no effort from you, ensuring perfect pelvic floor exercises every time.

To manually exercise your pelvic floor muscles is a big commitment, requiring 20-40 repetitions a couple of times a day, and even then there is always that little voice sat on your shoulder asking 'are you sure you're doing this right?'

'It's far less a commitment to lie in bed toning while reading - and electrification works. I know it works because, two months ago, I was prone to acts of involuntary urination when jogging. Now I'm not' - Louise Parker, Style Magazine

So we've dabbed the dribbles, now what about you and your man? Nowadays we're not prepared to put up with losing sexual sensation because of a weak pelvic floor and too right we shouldn't! That's why we've developed the new Kegel8 Ultra Vitality…

This marvelous little wonder comes with a wider probe for better connectivity with the muscle bed and a custom programme designed especially for revitalising your sex life. Trust us; you'll really notice the difference!

    Thanks for this article as an answer to the article in Style magazine ... I want to know if this is the newly developed machine that Louise Parker was talking about , with the ameliorise that tells you how your pelvic floor is doing exercise wise ....as in ... if it is working !!
    Also , how much will it cost ???
    What does it involve..... more info please no matter on the slightly cringing embarrassed feelings.....

  • Kegel8

    <p>We wanted to create a machine so a woman can assess her own pelvic floor strength, this is available in biofeedback devices, but can sometimes be quite complicated and not terribly user-friendly. We think that a woman should be able to use a machine to monitor her strength, after all we can all forget to do our exercises and this machine will be able to help us keep track of our progress (or lack of it if we forget to keep kegel exercising!!). Just like our bathroom scales keep us on target with our weight, this new machine will be able to help you monitor your progress and more importantly, keep you focused.</p>

    <p>We don’t have a launch date, it is in certification process so sorry - these things take time, we do know it will launch this year and a cost has not yet been finalised - we are very excited about this device and will let you all know as soon as possible, so please sign up for our newsletter. In the meantime you can look at biofeedback devices on StressNoMore, top recommendations are the Simplex, or the <a href="http://www.stressnomore.co.uk/Search/peritron" title="Peritron Perineometer available on StressNoMore" target="_blank">Peritron perineometer</a> - however the latter is I know, not cheap.</p>

  • Sue Gewanter

    Have just seen and ordered the Kegel8 Ultra Vitality, as discussed in the article, from the StressNoMore website.

    Is this not the device you are talking about, or have i bought something else???

  • Kegel8

    The Vitality is a new version of the Ultra, the same pelvic exercise programmes, but with and extra programme targeting intimate sexual sensation. This is not the unit referred to in the article.

    The Kegel 8 will be able to assess your pelvic floor strength and give you feedback on your strength and improvement (bit like bathroom scales when we are watching our weight) will be available late Autumn time.
    Hope this helps.

  • dawn riley

    i would like to no a few ways of pelvic floor exercise so i can tighten up down there

  • BC

    hi, im pregnant and preparing for a virginal birth so i want to strengthen and tone so can you tell me which is your best product for this?

    thanks,

    B

  • Kegel8

    Hi There,

    I am sorry but because you are pregnant no pelvic exerciser is recommended for use, you will have to do your exercises manually. When you have given birth and had a check up, you'll be able to use a kegel8 to get back in shape, but I am sorry not while you are pregnant!
    Good luck with your pregnancy - we are always here to help when you are ready to choose a kegel8.

  • annie

    Hi
    I am looking at buying the vitality version - how long before you notice results? Also is it noisy? Lol.

  • Kegel8

    <p>Annie - it is totally silent! No noise at all! Results vary, but many women and their partners will notice a difference within a few weeks. Make Kegel8 part of your health routine and you'll be amazed at the difference!</p>

    <p>Kind Regards</p>

  • Ann

    Hi
    I'm 21 years old, no children, no involuntary urination problem ever. I have heard about vagina pulsing or squeezing manually during intercourse, but when I tried, it doesn't work very significant on my man (he can notice that I'm moving down there, but not strong enough to feel pleasurable). Should I refer it as weak pv floor? Should I keep on using my smartballs or buy one of the Kegel8 products?

  • Kegel8

    Hi Ann<p/>
    <p>Thank you for your query. You can strengthen your pelvic floor easily with the Kegel8 Tight & Tone, http://www.kegel8.co.uk/kegel8-tightandtone.html<p>
    <p>It will really help you to tighten your muscles so that you can squeeze and release around your boyfriend. Many women find they can squeeze for a while, but their muscles tire very easily, but using the Kegel8 Tight & Tone, you can increase your 'endurance' that means you'll be able to squeeze and pulsate for a longer period of time. This will enhance both your intimate experience and that of your boyfriend.<p>
    <p>I hope this helps, please call if we can help you further.<p>

  • HCJ

    I have had a second stage prolapse for about 4 months. It feels and looks like half an egg between my legs! Would the Kegel8 help? I've been given a pesory to hold in the prolapse but it keeps coming out and is more uncomfortable than the prolapse itself!

  • kegel8

    Hi HCJ</p>

    The Kegel8 Ultra will really help, it has a prolapse programme which is specially designed for treating a prolapse and it will help to strengthen your pelvic floor. Obviously I do not know you exact condition, that is for the Health professionals, but many women strengthen and ease the pain and discomfort of a prolapse with the Kegel8. One woman said the other day how using it religiously every day for 2 months had cured her prolapse, and she was delighted. You'll need to use it in the mornings, before you get up and everything has a chance to 'drop'. You need to strengthen your pelvic floor, even if you do opt for surgery you will still have the weakness and this can lead to further prolapse of the bladder and or bowel. Please monitor your weight closely, this is a real pressure on your pelvic floor. With a prolapse it is often uncomfortable to exercise and this can also lead to weight gain but please look to Pilates, yoga and swimming, it will help those 'core' muscles of your abdominals as well as your pelvic floor. </p>

    Please call us on the helpline if we can help you further. The Kegel8 will really help you I have no doubt about that!

  • Valerie

    I have had my Kehel8 Ultra for a week and use it daily I am set for PO3 and using 40MA .Should I uncrease this in further use or decrease.
    <p>
    Looking forward to a 'cure' for my problem.

  • kegel8

    Dear Valerie
    <p>
    Try to increase the mA's as much as possible, the higher the mA's the more the intensity. You should be aiming to feel a good strong 'pull' to your muscle but always making sure it is comfortable.
    Hope this helps, we are here on the advice line if you have any further queries.

  • sophie

    Hi I have had 4 children and noticed a change 'down their' which machine would you recommend the tight n tone or the ultra? very confusing which is the best for 'best results'.
    Thanks
    </p>
    Sophie

  • Kegel8

    Hi Sophie,

    The Tight & Tone is great for younger women, but the Ultra is more powerful, it exercises the muscles of the pelvic floor in a deeper way, and as your pelvic floor has taken the strain of four babies this is what I would recommend for you.

    We are here on the helpline should you have any further questions before or after your purchase!

    Kind Regards

  • Betty

    I have been using the Kegel 8 for a week and find it very easy to use. Should I use it every day? I also have high blood pressure which is controlled by medication. Is this OK? I have been using 20 MA - can you tell me what the highest MA is and what does MA mean. Should I continue to increase from 20 ??
    <p>
    Thank you ,

  • Kegel8

    Hi Betty
    </p>
    Yes, please use it every day for at least 12 weeks, that will really help to strengthen your muscles. Ideally you should be starting to work your muscles at 30mA, this is the intensity at which you feel it and the higher the mA means it gets right to the bottom of the muscle bed to stimulate it effectively. It does go up to 90mA, this is for some women who may had pelvic damage so they have less sensation.
    <p>
    Your high blood pressure will not be a problem with your kegel8, although you might find that you have been leaking more, sometimes these types of medication can affect you bladder and result in less control.
    <p>
    If you want to discuss this further please give our helpline a ring we are here to help you.

  • Jenny

    Hi
    <p>
    I am 34 and have 3 children,2 natural and my last was a c section, since then I have not felt the same down there at all and have tried doing the excersises. My youngest is 6 now and down there still feels the same as it did six yrs ago or maybe worse, and I can hardly feel my partner which has made me lose all confidence in the bedroom department and dont feel like a normal sexy women anymore.. help.. should I get the kegal8 ultra??
    <p>
    Thank you

  • Kegel8

    Hi Jenny

    I am sorry that you have lost the sensation, it is absolutely crippling for many women and you are not alone, I feel this is so under-reported and a 'secret' many women keep to themselves. Fear not the Kegel8 Ultra will help you. With your C section you will have experienced nerve damage, cut muscles etc, so an Ultra can help in two ways. It will strengthen up your pelvic floor, so you get extra sensation, because the 'tightness' and 'friction' creates sensation - so you'll be able to regain feeling and enjoyment. Secondly it works to regenerate damaged nerves. 'Sprouting' is the term used to reinvigorate nerves, so again you restore sensation. The Kegel8 Ultra will do all of this of this for you.

    When you use an electronic exerciser you'll find that it increases blood flow around the pelvic area. Quite often Sex Therapists will recommend to 'get in the mood' have a hot bath - it's not just about being clean and relaxed, it is the fact that the hot water helps to increase circulation to your pelvic area, all of this helps with sexual response.

    We recommend you use the Kegel8 daily for 3 months, but realistically I would ask you to do it daily for 3 - 6 months, it will take time, but you will be delighted with the results. If you think about it your pelvic floor has taken many years to get to the level it is, pregnancies and childbirth really do take their toll (together with weight and medications) but with a few months regular effort you will reap the rewards of a reinvigorated love-life and a healthier pelvic floor.

    Reading your query I would also fear that your muscles could be so weak you may be heading for a prolapse, which you really need to avoid if possible, so please do start as soon as possible.

    Please give us a ring here on the helpline if we can help you further.

    Kind Regards

  • susan

    I purchased the kegel8 ultra but have lost the instruction booklet so dont know what program I should be using. I have a frequent urge to pass water even after I have already gone, what setting should I be on?

  • Kegel8

    Hi Susan,
    </p>
    For frequency use PO5 and PO6, this is the same on both the Kegel8 Ultra machines and the Kegel8 Tight & Tone.
    I would also recommend you use the Pelvic Floor Workout programme on the Ultra it is PO9 and on the Tight & Tone it is PO8. By alternating between a 'frequency' programme and the 'work out' it will help all muscles within your pelvic floor.
    </p>

  • Lucy

    I started at 30mA and increased to 45, but it is as high as I can bear. Do I need to increase it regardless the pain. I am also going on holiday with my husband in a month, and as he always complains about me being loose it will be great do tighten up for the ocasion. Will it help to do the exercises 3 times a day to see the difference and what programs do I need to select.
    Thank you

  • Kegel8

    Hi Lucy,
    <p>
    Please increase it to a comfortable level – you really won’t benefit from having to grimace every time you get a muscle contraction. It should always be comfortable. If you want to improve the intensity of the exercise, squeeze and pull up (almost ‘sucking-in’) as the probe contracts the muscle. Aim to do this twice a day – no more, because your pelvic floor can get tired very easily and this won’t be of benefit! Please keep up your routine and in a few weeks you will really notice a difference and I am sure your husband will too!

  • Rosie

    Is it OK to use my Kegal8 twice a day if I have time?

    Thanks.

  • Kegel8

    Hi Rosie
    </p>
    Yes, it is safe to use your Kegel8 twice a day. However, it is very important to ensure your muscles have sufficient rest in-between sessions. Perhaps use your Kegel8 morning and evening.
    </p>
    If your second session of the day causes you any discomfort be sure to lower your mAs and if you still feel discomfort this is indicative that your muscles have not had sufficient rest and you should end the session.
    </p>
    Just remember there is no benefit from over-exercising the pelvic floor just like any other muscle in your body.
    </p.>
    If you have any other queries never hesitate to contact us via e-mail or our customer helpline.

  • Ellie

    Hi

    I'm in my 20s, have no kids, but recently I find that after sex i dribble, is this because of a weak pelvic floor muscle ???

    I feel that I suffer from stress incontinence as when I go running I tend to dribble too. Which kegal will improve my sex life as well as the embarrassing problem of stress incontience?

    Will wait for your reply, thanks.

  • Kegel8

    Hi Ellie
    </p>
    The Tight and Tone would be perfect for you, you are young (20's) so you will be able to strengthen your pelvic floor and get great result pretty quickly. Any leakage is a sign of a weak pelvic floor, so the sooner you get started on strengthening the better - especially as you run - this all adds pressure to your pelvic floor.
    </p>
    Weight - Smoking - Medication? I don't know if you are on any medication - some meds do have an affect on your bladder and control, some hay fever treatments, and anti-depressants can mean you can leak and your muscles do not do the job they ideally should. With just a few weeks exercise you will soon regain control and become tight and toned! Use the 'Stress Incontinence' programme as this is one of the best for toning those intimate muscles so that both you and your boyfriend will notice an added excitement and increase in pleasure! It’s a win win situation, for both pleasure and health!!
    </p>
    Please don't ignore leaks, it is your body trying to tell you that all is not as it should be!
    </p>
    All the best!

  • Mia

    Hi I recently purchased the kegel 8 ultra .I have two babies the youngest is now 3 and Im 30years old . I bought it because I have been noticing my pelvic floor was weak (feels more loose) I dont think my husband can feel me squeeze during sex .Have been using the programme pc2 vitality for only one week.was wondering if is the right programme for me and also I have been using 70 mA s should i try to go higher ?if I go higher will the muscles get stronger.?
    Thanks a lot.
    Mia

  • Kegel8

    Hi Mia
    </p>
    Thanks for your comment, I'd recommend that you do programme PO2 and and PO9 these are great programmes for tightening up all the muscles in your pelvic floor - alternate these programmes. You have the Vitality programme PC2 so I would do this twice a week, because of your two babies you should focus on strengthening the muscles first (PO2 and PO9) then move onto the strengthening and stimulating programme of PC2.
    </p>
    You should aim to get the mA's as high as possible - but make sure it is still comfortable for you. If you want to maximise the results you get from your Kegel8 you should squeeze and lift by pressing against the probe when you feel it contracting your muscles, hold for the duration of the squeeze and release during the relax part, when you do a 'manual' kegel squeeze, you must make sure that you squeeze and lift (or suck up as I call it - many women squeeze, and some can squeeze downwards which is a 'bad' kegel).
    </p>
    Routine is really important, make your Kegel8 a habit and you will notice results really fast and you'll stay fit for the bedroom and beyond!
    </p>
    Best wishes

  • Sue

    Hi

    I purchased a Kegel 8, can you let me know if you have to work with the machine, i.e. doing your pelvic floor exercises with the machine.

    Thanks

    Sue

  • Kegel8

    Hi Sue,
    </p>
    Thanks for buying a Kegel8. You can work with the machine, or you can be passive - but working with it means you will get double the results in half the time. A few things to remember - when we say 'work with' the machine, we mean when you get a muscle contraction the screen on the Kegel8 will say 'work' this means you can do your manual kegel exercise - that is squeeze and suck up or pull up. If you find the probe is becoming dislodged and working its way out, then you doing a 'bad' kegel. That means you are pushing down. Always remember that the 'pull up' or 'sucking up' part of the kegel exercise that is most important part. I tell women to imagine they have a straw in your vagina and you are sucking up liquid. Relax when the machine tells you to relax, this is a vital part of the exercise session. If you don't relax your pelvic floor will get tired very easily and your exercise session will be wasted, your pelvic floor muscles ultimately need to re-learn to work and relax when you tell them.
    </p>
    I would also like to note for women who have a Kegel8 and find it impossible to work with the machine - don't worry. Sometimes your pelvic floor can be so weak you can't feel anything, and a simple kegel squeeze is impossible. Keep on with your Kegel8 and rebuild the strength and sensation within your pelvic floor until you are able to control your kegel squeezes.
    </p>
    As a note, when I do my Kegel8 exercise, I spend the first 5 minutes working with the machine and then let it do the rest of the programme while I read a book, that seems to work well for me. Hope this helps - we are here on the helpline if you have any further queries.

  • Heather

    Hi, I have the original "Kegel8" and have recently started using it again,as my pelvic floor has become very weak again (urine leakage on exercise and also lack of feeling during sex). Which programmes should I be using and which extra probe should I buy, as it is difficult to keep in place?

  • Kegel8

    Dear Heather
    </p>
    Is it the Tight & Tone or the Ultra? We can send you a new instruction booklet no problem, programme 2 on both machines is suitable for your needs, but other programmes do vary between the machines. I would recommend you consider buying the Periform Probe, this is wider and lighter (so it stays in place better) and has a wide surface area for the electrodes so more muscle is stimulated - this probe is also the one favoured by physiotherapists.
    </p>
    You can ring to place an order and we can include your instruction booklet - we are here Mon-Fri 8.30 - 5.30 on 01482 496932. If you prefer to order online, please drop us an e mail with your home address and Kegel8 unit type and we'll send the instructions to you by return of post.
    </p>
    Hope this helps - keep exercising!

  • Brenda

    Hi, I am considering buying the Kengel8 Ultra after reading reviews. I suffer from stress incontinence which is a major issue to me as I am always aware that if I laugh or sneeze or even just move a certain way I am at risk of leaking! This may sound a silly question but can you walk around with it? Is it battery operated? Or do you need to have it plugged in and stay sitting/lying down?

  • Kegel8

    Dear Brenda

    The Kegel8 Ultra is just what you need. It is battery operated (9v - the square one that fits most smoke detectors) and you just use one programme a day to get back in shape. The programmes vary in time between 20 - 45 mins, and they automatically exercise and stimulate your muscles helping you regain strength in your pelvic floor so it can support your bladder and organs in the way it was designed. Initially you need to use it daily for just 12 weeks, thereafter you can drop down to two or three times a week to maintain the tone and strength.

    Yes, you can walk around with it, one of our staff uses it while she does her ironing - that way it reminds her to do her exercises - it’s a case that many of us just forget to do them and getting into a routine is perfect for the best results. I tend to use mine when I am sat in bed reading at night, it is easier for me, some women with prolapse find it easier to exercise first thing in the morning before they get up and their pelvic organs 'settle down'.

    It really is quick and easy and your pelvic floor simply needs strengthening and toning-up. I urge you to start as soon as possible because any leak is a sign of a weak pelvic floor, this can then progress onto prolapse, which you really need to avoid if at all possible. There are so many women who have ignored this 'leak' stage and regret not doing anything about it. If you 'pad' a problem, it will only get worse and prolapse is uncomfortable and deeply upsetting for women - so it is the perfect time for you to start.

    Please call our helpline if you have any questions either before or after your purchase - we are here to help on 01482 496932

  • Kegel8

    <p>Dear Joan</p>

    <p>THANK YOU for your kind feedback - we hear so many times from women such as you who are looking for a solution to the agony of prolapse and it is great to hear about your success. Sadly we do find that some un-enlightened health professionals do 'poo-poo' the Kegel8 but slowly (very slowly it seems sometimes!) we are starting to hear that GPS are recommending the Kegel8, and clinics taking them on-board to run trials. </p>
    <p>Thanks too for spreading the Kegel8 word amongst your friends - I feel it is so important that we spread the word as much as possible. We are a small company and do not have the deep-pockets, media contacts and clout that drugs companies, panty pad manufacturers and surgeons have, but with help from women like you we know we can be heard. Every day we have many more women, and increasingly now men too, who report regaining bladder control and intimate sensation, so your message is of great help to us and to others who want to take control of their health and explore the benefits of Kegel8.</p>

  • Joan Spurden

    <p>Hi. </p>
    <p>I was diagnosed with a prolapse and was painfully fitted with a pessary. On a follow up appointment I said I didn't want anymore pessaries or the discharge I had with it. I told the Doctor I had been thinking of getting a Kegel8 machine, the four hospital staff present laughed and told me not to waste my money!</p>
    <p>I am 66 and decided it is my body and my money, three months after starting with my Kegel8 ultra plus I now have dry panties for the first time in a very very long time.</p>
    <p>I used to be embarassed about my problem but am now telling all my female friends and relatives about my little pink and white friend. I don't want anyone else to suffer when they don't have too.</p>
    <p>My Husband is also pleased with the results.<?p>





  • Tara

    Hello, I am a 28 and have not yet had children but recently have been experiencing leakage. I find it is fairly speradic and I am unable to pin point a "trigger". Sometimes I feel the urge to use the bathroom so suddenly and cannot control the leakage and other times it is apparantly fine. When it does happen its so sudden and so urgent. I guess this started with my last boyfriend as he used to massage me in such a manner it would feel like I had to go and it is only since then I have had this problem. My question is... is this related to bladder weakness,weak pelvic floor muscles or is down to my ex partners antics causing damage?? As I am 28 which one would be most beneficial to me? I do intend to have children in the future so would like one that I can use now and also in the future as well. Thank you for any advice you may have

  • Kegel8

    Dear Tara
    </p>
    Thank you for your query, I think you are showing the first signs of pelvic floor weakness and you will really benefit from exercising, especially if you are thinking of starting a family in the future. A strong pelvic floor will help both with conception and natural childbirth so this is a perfect opportunity for you to start.
    </p>
    When you mention that your boyfriend used to massage you in a certain way - I think that you mean intimately, and some stimulation can cause female ejaculation, a clear liquid that is not urine, but you may have experienced an overwhelming feeling as if you wanted to wee. Don't worry, a healthy functioning pelvic floor is a strong pelvic floor. When we make love it stimulates blood flow to the area and orgasm keeps our muscles strong and working as they should. We speak a lot to women who are not in relationships and have maybe not made love for a year or so who think that they will naturally regain tightness and strong muscles because they have not been making love. However, quite the opposite is true! It is a case of use it or lose it, so do strengthen it and you will be tight for loving and babies in the future.
    </p>
    I'd recommend the Tight & Tone. The Tight & Tone will deliver you great results which will keep you in shape for your love-life, family life and for you! I know 40 may seem ages away from you as you are only 28, however to avoid pelvic health problems in the future if you start now, you will be able to enjoy all that life has for you, because believe me, we speak to thousands of women who wish they had known to do something when they first had the symptoms of weakness, instead of ignoring it and finding out too late.
    </p>
    Thank you for your query Tara we are here on the helpline if you need further information we are always here to help.

  • Ann

    I have been diagnosed with bladder prolapse (stage 2). I have had surgery for a rectal prolapse already and think that I have possibly accelerated the bladder prolapse with heavy lifting. I am 68 years old and would like to avoid surgery again if possible. Would the kegel8 help and which one would I benefit most from. I am also unsure of how you use this device, is it just inserted in the vagina and left to contract the muscles and is it painful.

  • Kegel8

    Dear Ann
    </p>
    Sadly rectal and bladder prolapse go hand in hand, if you get one, you are more prone to the other. Most women tend to discover this link after the event I am afraid.
    </p>
    The Kegel8 Ultra has a programme specifically for prolapse. It won't heal a prolapse but it can stop it getting worse and work to strengthen your pelvic floor. It is quite painless! You simply select the programme, insert the probe and select the intensity level that is best for you. You will feel a slight pulling to your muscles, it is not painful at all, and it will really help to strengthen and invigorate your pelvic floor muscles and nerves. In your case if you are able you should use it daily for at least 12 weeks, better still if you can exercise morning and night this will help to strengthen your pelvic floor no-end. Results are slower the older we are - it's about hormone levels and our muscles losing elasticity I am afraid, but you will still benefit.
    </p>
    I know you've had surgery for rectal prolapse, but you should be OK using just the vaginal probe vaginally - this will help to strengthen 'front and back'.
    </p>
    Other key pointers - watch your weight, it is quite critical when you have a weak/damaged pelvic floor, and do try and avoid constipation and straining. Low impact exercise is great - yoga, pilates and swimming, and you might also like to look at the Kegel8 Hab-it DVD - I think it is one of the best pelvic exercise DVDs available, because as well as exercises it will help you with posture pointers, help with walking, sitting etc, which is vital to keep your pelvic floor aligned and help support the kegel exercises.
    </p>
    The Kegel8 Ultra Plus is the best model for you, please call our helpline when you receive your product and we will help you understand it more.
    Kind Regards

    I am 53 years old - 5 years ago I had surgery for stress incontinence and I am currently 3 weeks post -op from a hysterectomy due to uterine prolapse. All I need now is rectal and bladder prolapse and I will have the full set! Needless to say, I want to avoid that at all costs, so which of your products do you recommend?
    I am interested in the one which gives feedback on progress - which one is that and is it suitable for me?

  • Kegel8

    <p>Hi Lynne</p>
    <p>Sorry you've been through the mill - the Kegel8 Ultra is perfect for you. It has a programme for prolapse PO9 - use this alternately with PO9 (Pelvic floor workout). These two programmes are ideal for strengthening and toning.</p>
    <p>You also might like to have a look at the <a href="http://www.stressnomore.co.uk/pd/Kegel-8-Hab-it-Pelvic-Floor-DVD_81392.html" target="_blank" title="Hab-it DVD on StressNoMore">Hab-it DVD at StressNoMore</a>, click on the video tab and have a look at the clip. It shows you simple posture improvements you must adopt - and they are really easy. If you are to prevent further prolapse, kegel8 exercises, posture work and lifestyle changes are really really important and they can make a big difference and stop further deterioration. After a hysterectomy you have a higher risk of a cystocele (bladder prolapse) - if you get a bladder prolapse you're more susceptible to a rectocele (bowel) prolapse, but strengthening your muscles, and ligaments will help give these pelvic organs the support they need not to fall out of place. Watch your weight, keep active with low impact exercise, avoid constipation if possible, also watch your medications, many make your pelvic floor weak - anti depressants and statins for instance.</p>
    <p>Good luck with your recuperation, I hope this helps - we are here on the advice line if you need further help.</p>
    <p>Kind regards,</p>

  • Shirley

    Hi,

    I was wondering what your recommendation would be for my personal circumstances. I'm 41 with 3 children, recently in the occasional outdoor training that I partake in and sometimes the exercises are quite strenuous, I notice whilst sprinting I dribbled, not a great deal but enough to now make my sessions less enjoyable for fear of it happening again. It's not on every session as the exercises vary, so would Kegel8 be of any use to me and how soon would I see the result, are they guaranteed?

  • Kegel8

    Hi Shirley
    </p>
    Thank you for contacting us. The good news is Kegel8 can certainly help your circumstances. Given that you have had 3 children I would recommend the Kegel8 Ultra. It is the stronger unit and although you are currently only experiencing the occasional dribble, this is your body’s warning signal and things are likely to get worse; especially as you sprint, which is great for your fitness but does put your pelvic floor under pressure.
    </p>
    Every woman responds differently to Kegel8, some women can feel the difference after a couple of days, and others after a couple of weeks but given the description of your symptoms at this stage, you should expect to see results sooner rather than later. You may also like to try the Kegel8 Day Toner; this is our new toner which you insert and wear discreetly throughout the day (or night) but also stops leaks and dribbles which is perfect for women who suffer during exercise and especially runners like yourself.
    </p>
    I hope this helps Shirley and please do not hesitate to give us a call should you need any further advice.

  • Mariam

    Hi, I'm 26 years old and I have 3 children. I've also quite recently given birth to a still born baby. I have always suffered with slight leakage and dribbling, but recently I have no bladder control whatsover..and very embarassingly wet myself frequently, especially when I laugh. My doctor prescribed me Ditropan and I am currently taking them however I feel no results. I am trying to do the pelvic floor muscle exercise however I feel very very weak down there and have no control over my muscles. I have lost all sensation in sex and I'm sure my partner feels the same way too as I feel just very very very loose and wet down there! Can you please help me to find the most suitable machine for me, and would it work for me and how long until I see results. Please help me as i feel very depressed and alone about this. Thank you very much

  • Kegel8

    Dear Mariam
    </p>
    Thank you for your query, I am sorry you have been through a lot of trauma, both physically and mentally and your bladder weakness will not help your self-esteem one bit. I would recommend that you buy a Kegel8 Ultra, this is the most effective of the machines and works deep within the muscles. Four babies is a lot of extra weight that your pelvic floor has had to support and it has become weak, and not had enough time to get strong again in between births – but have no fear you have recognised the problem and you want to do something about it so that is a really positive step.
    </p>
    By strengthening your pelvic floor you will be able to help your body to support your bladder (to stop the leaks) and tighten the muscles in and around your vagina (for more intimate sensation for you and your partner). Many women report fast results, some notice after just a few sessions, but certainly within a few weeks you will start to feel a difference and your partner will most certainly notice the difference too. I would urge you to start exercising as soon as possible, and to try and make it part of your weekly routine, because these are warning signs that mean you could be heading for further leaks, and possibly even a prolapse where your pelvic organs ‘fall’ out of place because they are not being supported (by your pelvic floor). You will be amazed how easy it is, and you’ll get back ‘in tune’ with your body and feel great results and I am sure you’ll be able to say goodbye to the Ditropan and help your body heal itself naturally and get strong again for yourself and your family..
    </p>
    Please don't hesitate to contact us if you need any further help or advice

  • Lj

    Hi I've just turned 34 years old and I think I suffer from Stress Incontinence?I don't have any children and also I am currently ill with flu and on medication and seem to be having regular dribbles every time I cough and sneeze. But this also happens on a regular basis! Every time I sneeze I cross my legs as I am aware this happens, My husband and I do have a giggle about it but it actually is quite embarrassing if out or when at work etc! I work irregular hours and sometimes it's hard to get to a loo straight away! I am interested in buying a machine which one could you recommend?

  • Kegel8

    Yep, that’s SUI Stress Urinary Incontinence – it’s a weakness in your pelvic floor support when you exert pressure (sneeze or laugh) and urine dribbles out. So often women think it is an inevitable part of getting older, but you have done right by looking for help, because it is a warning shot of more weakness to come.
    </p>
    We speak to many women who say they wish they had done something when they had the first signs, instead of ignoring it or using a pad. I am afraid down the line the dribbles will get worse, and they be followed with lack of control with wind and faecal incontinence too – then your options go into the realms of surgery which most women really do want to avoid. If your pelvic floor is weak and ‘sags’ you’ll find your pelvic organs; bladder, uterus, bowel could prolapse (fall out of position) and this is absolutely distressing for many women.
    </p>
    So, you are 34, I would urge you to get a Tight and Tone or an Ultra, you need to strengthen your pelvic floor and I think that your ‘laughter leaks’ can be easily corrected, either of these machines will help you get strong and in control again. You’ll be amazed at how quickly you will notice the difference and your husband certainly will.
    </p>
    You say you are on medication – I am not sure if this is just for your flu, as many medications can weaken the muscles of the pelvic floor, so do beware and try to notice how your body responds to medications. Some women also find they have less control at certain times of the month due to changes in hormone levels. Most of all you need to know that exercising is really easy with a Kegel8 and you just need to do it regularly. We suggest daily for the first 3 months (just 20 mins a day – you can do it bed at night or first thing in the morning) after that just a couple of times a week to keep your pelvic muscles strong and doing the job they should be doing which is to keep your pelvic organs in place and let you ‘go’ only when you want to.
    </p>
    We are here on the helpline if we can help you further, please do call.

  • Jane

    Hi, I was wandering if you could advise what Kegel8 machine I should get?
    </p>
    As I leak a lot when I exercise , I have worn a pad but have to change it during my work out and I dribble if I walk down the stairs , it is also worse if I drink alcohol and the last few times I have had sex with my husband I have felt loose, I'm 44 and have had 2 children but that was in my twenties. Many thanks

  • Kegel8

    Hi Jane,
    </p>
    I'd recommend you opt for the Ultra. Because of your age (heading towards the menopause) you should start a course of exercising as soon as possible. Your body is telling you that all is not well, and a weak pelvic floor means that your bladder is not being supported properly. Alcohol is a real irritant to your bladder, so too is coffee. What you will find with alcohol is that it also relaxes your muscles so your poor bladder is getting even less support. If you start exercising now you will be able to get strong for when your body changes to the menopause, if you do not I am afraid you are potentially likely to get worse, because as your hormone levels decrease with menopause so too does the elasticity and strength of your pelvic floor.
    </p>
    I would advise that you use your Kegel8 daily for 3months, you will be amazed how quickly you will notice a difference and regain control and your intimate sensations will be greatly improved. The greater friction we receive during lovemaking, (through penetration) amplifies the pleasure for us (and the man too, it helps him keep his erection) but if there is not the tightness in the vaginal area then it is a twofold problem, a woman does not receive the friction that heightens to create her orgasm, and a man doesn’t get the friction that helps him keep his erection and aids his pleasure. Your muscles will tighten up , and become more responsive with a Kegel8 because of the pelvic exercising so I am sure you will both benefit in the bedroom department.
    </p>
    Leaks & Loss of sensation - This is your body giving you a ‘warning shot’ if you do not strengthen your pelvic floor you could well go onto suffer pelvic organ prolapse, where either your bladder, uterus or bowel ‘falls out’ of place and this is most distressing for women, it can be avoided by kegel exercises and taking care of your pelvic floor. Watch your weight, do regular kegel exercise watch certain medications – all these will help you to keep your pelvic floor strong until you are 100!
    </p>
    You will also find the Kegel8 DayToner great when you exercise, it gives that added lift to your bladder and stops leaks as well as exercising your pelvic floor too (it is a silicone tampon – many sportswomen use them!).
    </p>
    I hope this helps and please do call us if you need any futher information.

  • Rosie

    Hi, I am quite desperate about my bladder problem. I am a 51 year old woman who has been suffering with involuntary loss of urine for the past two years. I am frustrated with the support I have received from my doctor and nurse regarding this. I have tried medication but did not get on with it and it made no difference. I was also loaned a machine similar to the ones you advertise from a physio therapy dept and that did not help either. I do not know which way to turn now as I feel I am too young to be going around wearing Tenna pads all the time.
    </p>
    Any advice would be much welcomed.

  • Kegel8

    Hi Rosie
    </p>
    I am sorry you are having problems, but you are right to keep searching for an answer to your problem, 51 is too young – you have too much to do. I don’t know how long you used the machine that was loaned to you by the Physiotherapist? Results can take at least 30 days to show, and in some case progress is slow, but you should see results. Are you on any other medication? Medications such as Statins, and anti-depressants can have a detrimental effect on your bladder without many women (and sometimes Doctors) realising. How is your weight? This can be quite crucial to your pelvic floor, and one lady reported that 7lbs meant the difference between her being able to control her bladder – or (with an extra 7lbs) having little control at all.
    </p>
    Did you notice any difference with the physiotherapy? Obviously they have examined you and will have more of an idea of your personal circumstances but please do not give up on the exercising because I feel this is imperative to you getting your pelvic floor strength back again and regaining the control you have lost, I think that your bladder is leaking because your pelvic floor has ‘sagged’ and isn’t supporting it anymore. There are operations for this, but please be aware that an operation can be a short term solution and there are no operations that can strengthen your pelvic floor. The reason why strengthening has to be your primary focus is because you are also liable to prolapse, that can be your bladder dropping, your uterus, or your bowel because the pelvic floor is not supporting them. Please let me know if we can help you further, but I urge you to continue the work you started with the physiotherapists (exercising twice daily) and Kegel8 can help you do that.

  • Paula

    I was diagnosed with a prolapsed bladder 11 yrs ago after the birth of my fourth child. All four births involved forceps or tears. I had a post vaginal hysterectomy 5 months ago as my uterus was very enlarged. I was supposed to have a repair done at the same time but I bled heavily during the surgery so the repair was not done. I've since had trouble going to the loo and have been diagnosed with a rectocele. I have heaviness down below, lover back pain and discomfort and loss of sensation during sex. I'm feeling really down as it affects every part of my life. I'm having physiotherapy once a week and it seems to be helping a little. I have been told I probably will need further surgery but have been offered no other options after physio which is supposedly to help strengthen my pelvic floor to prepare for surgery! Please please tell me that one of your machines might be the solution to my problems and if so which one would you recommend?

  • Kegel8

    Hi Paula, Crikey you have had a hard time. I wish at the time of your bladder prolapse someone had told you that you were prone to the other side ‘collapsing’ too (bowel prolapse). All of this is due to the trauma your pelvic floor has received and a weak pelvic floor muscle structure. It is great that you are having physiotherapy, and yes one of our Kegel8 Ultra would be very beneficial for you. Your pelvic floor needs to get as strong as possible, this will help you maintain control of your remaining pelvic organs, help to minimised the ‘dragging’ feeling and lower back pain, it will also help you to regain sensation which will do your love-life the world of good too.
    </p>
    We always try and steer women towards physios, they are brilliant and they help you to correct seemingly little things like your posture (which are vital) which we don’t always think of as vital, but it is the case that every little bit helps, and it is vital that your pelvic floor is not seen in isolation, but as part of your core muscles. If you are having more surgery then a strong pelvic floor will recover quicker than a weak one, and in many cases women regain a level of strength so that they can avoid surgery – and many feel very empowered by this.
    </p>
    Watch your constipation – difficult with a rectocele I know (have you tried femmeze – it’s a little device you can use vaginally to push your bowel back into position so you can poo without straining) try to avoid laxatives as they can weaken the muscles within your bowels. Get your feet up when you go to the loo (squatting position is best for total elimination of wastes), something like the Re-Lax toilet step (Health Step in the US) actually helps your body get in the best position to stop you straining and putting extra pressure on your weak pelvic floor. We are getting some re-lax toilet steps in shortly for our www.stressnomore.co.uk website – should be here by May 2012.
    </p>
    Please carry on with the work you are doing with your physio, watch your weight, and exercise with your kegel8 Ultra (would be perfect for you – it’s the strongest one we have) this will help your body strengthen itself and help it to naturally adjust to the challenges you have encountered and help you feel more in control of your body and future. We are here on the helpline if we can help you further.

  • Janet

    I have suffered from stress incontinence since I had a rushed episiotomy with the birth of my first child 7years ago he was only 6lb so not a big baby . I also have a 2 year old who was just 5.5lbs. I have noticed recently that when I am picking up my 2 year old I leak a little but not every time normally before my period. I find it so embarrassing and I have just pruchased the Kegel8 Ultra and hope it works as I have tried another pelvic toner and did not really notice any difference. Is there any hope or do you think the episiotomy has caused a lot of damage?

  • Kegel8

    Hi Janet
    </p>
    Yes there is lots of hope – you are moving in the right direction. Your pelvic floor is historically weaker before your period, this is because of hormone changes in your body, so don’t be too alarmed but it is a warning and a reminder for you to strengthen your pelvic floor. Your episiotomy will have weakened your pelvic floor, so now is a great time to start strengthening it. You need to get the muscle strong so that it can support all your pelvic organs (bladder, vagina and bowel) and makes sure that you can maintain control when you go to the loo (wind, wee and poo) and you and your partner both enjoy your love-life. I would also recommend a Vitamin D supplement as clinical studies have shown that this can help strengthen the pelvic floor. You need to strengthen muscles in the pelvic floor and make them thicker too (weak muscles get thin and lose elasticity). So often women give up before they see results, but I guarantee you will be amazed, some women notice in a couple of weeks, others take 4 – 6 weeks, but you must make yourself a routine.
    </p>
    I would also say that you need to strengthen your pelvic floor, any form of bladder weakness is a sign that it is not supporting as it should and should not be ignores. There are so many women who have ignored these signs and then they sadly suffer from prolapse (where the organs fall out of place – bringing a whole new realm of challenges to the pelvic floor). So, don’t despair – watch your weight, keep fit and healthy and strengthen your pelvic floor – it will also help to flatten your tummy and stop back ache too. I bet your partner notices your new found tightness before you do (they always do!) so please make it a routine to prevent further weakness and leaks.
    </p>

  • Lesley

    Hello
    </p>
    I'm hoping you can advise me please. I'm 52 years of age and have 3 children. I've been suffering with stress incontinence for a few years though losing weight recently has helped. My sex life is non existent due to the fact I feel "too large" for my partner, and get little sensation which understandably has put a strain on our relationship. I have been to my doctor for some help and advice and she has recommended that I just keep up with my pelvic floor excercises. I've recently read quite alot about your new product the Kegel8 ultra vitality....do you think that this would be the right machine for me?
    </p>
    Thank you for your time, any advice would be gratefully received

  • Kegel8

    Dear Lesley
    </p>
    Thanks for your message, I am sorry you are not feeling so good about yourself. You have made some really positive steps though with losing weight and deciding to do some kegel exercises. They really will help and you will be amazed – I am sure. I would recommend the Ultra Vitality. You need to exercise regularly; after all, your pelvic floor has weakened over many years, so it will take a few weeks before you start to notice a difference.
    </p>
    So often women lose all sensation, so you are not alone, you are one of the brave ones who has spoken up and wants to do something about it. By strengthening your pelvic floor you will be able to regain sensation and tightness, this is what your partner will need for his pleasure too – it’s the friction (good friction) which gives us pleasure and orgasms and you need tight muscles for that.
    </p>
    Are you on any medication? So often medication can actually reduce sensation, meds such as anti-depressants and some muscle relaxants are big problems for intimate sensation – try and get strong in your pelvic floor and you’ll be amazed how much better you will feel about yourself, and you’ll be able to enjoy intimacy with your partner again. We are here on the helpline if you need any help with programmes, but use it daily for a few weeks, then go onto the Vitality (sexy programme) you will really start to notice a difference – but our advice for starters would be to use PO2 and PO9 alternately on a daily basis for a couple of weeks

  • Janette

    Hello. I bought the Kegel8 Ultra a few weeks ago and have tried it a few times but am not feeling any kind of 'pull' or tense/relax sensation - but rather just the electric stimulation that kind be a bit painful or uncomfortable when the MA's are quite high. I can stand 35 or so but again it really is a sense of electric stimulation but I cant feel my muscles doing anything. Is this right?

    Many thanks for your help

  • Kegel8

    Hello Janette
    </p>
    It depends which programme you have on your machine. All the programmes vary, some are for nerve damage, and some work the muscles more than others. I don’t know which machine you have but try the overall pelvic floor work out programme – it has different phases and see if you can feel the different sensations. Maybe call our advice line so we can narrow down what is happening here and advise you further.
    Thank you

  • Tracy

    I have got my kegel 8 vitality and have been using it for almost a week and can tell its working. My first question is with programme PO2 the booklet says with your help i can programme for both types of prolapse which i have. Can i please get that info. I bought extra probes so I could find which one i would be more comfortable with and i also bought the anal probe. My one problem is i didnt know i needed a extra lead wire for the anal probe to be used at the same time. I plan on ordering that and have tried to find one here in the USA and have had no luck. I will be glad to order it but things seem to take so long to get here and the cost of shipping is great for such a small item. Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks:)

  • Kegel8

    We have the programme for anal use, which will help when you use your anal probe, you’ll find it here <a href="http://www.kegel8.co.uk/articles/2010-10-04-how-to-programme-your-kegel8/" target=_blank>Anal Programme</a>
    We’ll pop a lead wire in the post for you.
    Let me know if we can help further.

  • Rebecca

    Hello. I wondered if you could advise if any of your products are suitable for me to use? I am 40 years old with 2 children and have terrible stress incontinence which is preventing me from exercising, and is a problem whenever I have a cough, or if I am sick. My main concern is that I have a Mirena coil. Are your products suitable for use with this coil?
    Many thanks

  • Kegel8

    Hello Rebecca
    </p>
    The Ultra will be best for you. It is more powerful and because of your age, and the fact that are already displaying quite a weakness you need the help that an Ultra can give you. It is fine to use with a Mirena coil – no problems at all.
    Let me know if I can help you further, but the Stress programme on the Ultra is particularly effective – you’ll get good results. Also we are selling a lot of Kegel8 DayToners too – women are using them during the day to supplement their kegel exercising and also to give a bit of a lift to the bladder – it really helps to cut down on leaks especially during exercise. It’s terribly effective you might want to look at that as well.
    Let me know if we can help further.

  • Michelle

    Hi, I have just purchased the Kegel8 ultra plus. I'm not sure which programme is best for me. I'm 47 I have 2 children youngest is 22 yrs old, both by c section, also 2 natural early still births. I do not leak at all. My problem is l know I'm loose down there and would like to tighten up to improve my sex life. Many thanks.

  • Kegel8

    Hi Michelle
    </p>
    I recommend Programme 9, it's an overall pelvic floor workout that will get you back into shape in no time. You mention you don't suffer from any leaks so perhaps you still have a certain amount of muscle control? If this is the case then also use Programme 10 from time-to-time. This will just challenge your muscles that little bit more and also gives you a shorter session option if you're ever a little pushed for time.
    </p>
    I hope this helps Michelle, and don't hesitate to give us a call if we can help any further.

  • Barb

    Hi,
    Will the Kegel8 Ultra help me? I'm over 60 had a prolapsed womb for years, its got worse this last few weeks and now I can't hold a full bladder, and don't always make it to the loo, its really getting me down and even avoid going out now.
    Would be grateful for any advice, as really can't afford this if it won't help, but would be worth every penny if it does.

    Thank you ...

  • Kegel8

    Dear Barb
    </p>
    I am sorry you are in this situation. Have you been to your Doctor to get it checked? I would advise you to, just to be on the safe side. Yes I do think that the Kegel8 will help you – you need to strengthen the muscles of your pelvic floor so that they support your pelvic organs, otherwise with age they can fallout of position (prolapse). You are never too old to strengthen your muscles, although the older we get we do get slightly slower results but results all the same and you would benefit from strengthening. I would urge you to start as soon as possible, you need to help support your bladder but also your vagina and bowel too. Have you seen a continence advisor? She may be able to suggest a pessary that could help to temporarily ‘lift’ your womb slightly so it is not pressing on your bladder. I cannot say for sure, so do please ask your Doctor to refer you for further help. It is not inevitable that you have surgery, and you are obviously keen to help yourself and you are looking for a solution, so together with a check-up and a Kegel8 I am sure you would be able to strengthen up. Please do not let your incontinence stop you getting on with your life – it is a desperate time for you I am sure – but you don’t have to suffer like this, and we are always here to help you.
    </p>
    You also might like to try the Kegel8 DayToner, this helps to support your bladder too, but again, please get checked out, because a continence nurse will be able to suggest solutions that are right for you after a personal examination.
    </p>
    Best wishes Barb

  • Daisy

    Hi

    I wonder if you can give me some advise on how to use the kegel8 ultra that I have purchased, I get very little sensation during sex and my partner says he can't feel me tightening during sex, please can you advise the best programme and how often and what mA setting I should use?

    Thanks

  • Kegel8

    Hi Daisy

    The result you are looking for is very achievable with the Kegel8 Ultra. I recommend you alternate your programmes between P08 (for lack of sensitivity) and P05 (which will be great for your tightening). Use your Kegel8 everyday if you can for the fastest results or at least 3 times a week for a gradual noticeable change providing you are not suffering any form of bladder leaks (although saying this we are all very different and we hear from many women who notice a different after the first couple of uses). As for the mAs this is a very individual matter - everyone feels the stimulation differently. The general rule however is to aim above 30mAs and as high as you can after that whilst still feeling comfortable - that is VERY important. You want the pull on your muscles to feel strong but not uncomfortable. I hope this helps Daisy but if you wold like to talk more about how to get the best from your Kegel8 please do feel free to give us a call - we are here to help and you and your husband will certainly notice the difference once you get to grips with your exercise routine.

    Best wishes

  • Lucy

    Hi,

    I am looking to buy Kegel8 but dont know which one to buy. I have not had children yet. However I do feel loss of sensation down there and find it hard to orgasm.

    Which Kegel would be best for me and what programmes should I use.

    Thanks

  • Kegel8

    Hi Lucy

    I would definitely recommend the Ultra Vitality and using it's unique Vitality programme. This unit is one of our best sellers and gives real results in tightening and increased sexual sensation.

    Read some of the reviews on the product page so hear what users think.

  • Kellie

    Ive recently purchased a Kegel8 Ultra. A few years ago I had a hysterectomy due to prolapse as well as a sling put on my bladder due to leakage. I do not leak anymore thanks to the sling however I have very weak pelvic floor muscles and I know that I am very "loose". I don't have a lot of sensation either. Which program should I use to tighten up and possibly increase sensitivity?
    Thanks

    Kegel8: Hi Kellie. Firstly, congratulations on taking control and doing something about it. Now you have your Kegel8 I would recommend you use P08 and P09. Just alternate your programmes each time you exercise and this cobination will give you good tone and increased sensitivity. Good luck!

  • Joanne

    I got a coil in and my husband noticed I wasn't tight down there anymore so I bought a kegal 8 tight and tone and sure enough after 10 days we noticed a big difference but into change since that I use program 5 and 9 what else can I do

    Hi Joanne
    Thanks for your question. It is always best to vary the programmes. The pelvic floor is comprised of different muscles, fibres and ligaments so varying the programmes will really help. If you feel your pelvic floor has got used to 5 and 9 try 2 and 8 these are also good programmes and varying the stimulation to the muscles will help.

    Also we read a clinical report about how effective Vitamin D3 is when kegel exercising - the women had much better clinical outcomes so maybe invest in a good Vitamin D3 - it helps your body absorb calcium and it vital for bones and muscles.

    Remember that exercising regularly is vital, let me know how you get on,
