It can be a devastating blow to realise that you are no longer in complete control of your body. Here at Kegel8 we understand all too well the effect that pelvic floor dysfunction has on every single aspect of a woman's life. Whether bladder weakness has you too embarrassed or anxious to leave the house, prolapse is making it difficult to go to the toilet or an uninspired sex life has led to relationship problems, in a matter of just 12 weeks, the Kegel8 Ultra 20 can help you to turn things around.
Who will benefit from using the Kegel8 Ultra 20?
All of us of course! Sadly we underestimate the importance of a strong pelvic floor. A weak pelvic floor isn't inevitable as we get older - do you recognise any of these signs?

- Bladder Leaks
- Uncontrollable Wind
- Constipation & Straining to Poo
- Tampons Fall Out
- Love Life is Lack-Lustre
- Lower Back Ache
- Bulging "Pot Belly"
Strong Pelvic Floor
- No More Accidents
- Control Your Bladder & Bowel
- Easy Toileting
- Strong Vaginal Walls
- Great Sex - For You and Your Partner
- Strong Back, Ache-Free Hips
- Flat Tummy
Bladder Weakness & Incontinence
It's no laughing matter! They may be called "laughter leaks", but there's certainly nothing funny about them. As we get older, it's not unusual to experience the odd leak here are there. But that's not to say it should be accepted as inevitable.
It is currently estimated that there are three-six million people in the UK suffering from some form of incontinence (urge, stress, overactive bladder), and 25-30% of women aged between 45 and 65 are thought to be within this bracket. Merely going to the toilet more than 8 times a day could mean you are one of them; catch it early!
"The best way to treat Bladder Weakness is to exercise your pelvic floor muscles"
Dr Chris Steel
Here at Kegel8 we understand just how debilitating pelvic pain can be. That's why we've taken time to find a solution that works - no more nasty drugs to make you drowsy. The Kegel8 Ultra 20 blocks the pain signals being sent to the brain and stimulates the release of endorphins for natural pain relief. It also helps to relax pelvic floor muscles that become "locked" in pain. Treatment is easy too, if you aren't able to use a vaginal probe you can stimulate points outside your body using electrode pads for fast effective natural pain relief.
Did you know that it is estimated 1 in 2 women over the age of 50 will suffer some form of prolapse - that's when, one or more of the pelvic organs descends into the vagina. Medical evidence suggests that pelvic floor exercises will actually improve the symptoms and in many cases can stop a prolapse from worsening.
"After vaginal surgery (hysterectomy, prolapse...) pelvic floor exercises are important for pelvic floor recovery and long-term pelvic support."
Michelle Kenway - Physiotherapist & Author
Lack of Sexual Sensation
Is something lacking in your sex life? Well, if it's sensation, the chances are you're not the only one who doesn't feel it. You need to "feel" it to orgasm (and you won't with a weak pelvic floor), he needs to 'feel' you to keep his erection and orgasm too. Lacklustre sex and reduced sensations are a passion killer, however, in a matter of weeks the Kegel8 Ultra 20 could inspire the best sex of both of your lives!
"A weak pelvic floor means less sensation for both parties. Women get bored; men get restless. Relationships lose potency in direct proportions to pelvic-floor entropy."
John Warlock, Sunday Times
How does Kegel8 work?
So, just how does the Kegel8 Ultra 20 help you to regain control over your body and start living life to the full?
It's simple; with the use of neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES) and electrical nerve stimulation. Electrical impulses are introduced to the body by a probe, or electrode pad, which stimulate a contraction within the pelvic floor. These contractions exercise the muscles and, as with any kind of exercise performed regularly, build strength and tone.
This electrical stimulation from the Kegel8 works 90% of the pelvic floor muscles, unlike manual "Kegels" which target only 40%.  Shocking, we know!
What you get
- Controller - with 20 pre-programmed sensation, exercise and pain-killing programmes
- Probe - nickel-free gold probe to help you achieve optimum results without nasty allergic reactions (10% women are nickel intolerant - have no fear - Kegel8 is here!)
- Electrode Pads - If you don't want to or can't use a vaginal probe we have the solution. Kegel8 is the only home-use electronic toner in the world to use outside stimulation with clinically proven results.
3 ways to use a Kegel8 Ultra 20
Think the Kegel8 Ultra 20 sounds too good to be true? Well, it most certainly is good, but it's also true. A number of clinical studies have been undertaken to substantiate the efficacy of our programmes, all of which verify its use as a treatment/prevention for pelvic floor dysfunction and the associated symptoms.

- Lucky is the woman with a strong pelvic floor. Review by LB88
- things are worse :( Review by Cat
I have been using my Kegel8 Ultra 20 twice a day since over 6 weeks now and all I notice is that things are getting worse and I am VERY unhappy about that :(
For whatever reason I still do believe it may work 'one day'... that's why I don't give up yet, but I'm a bit anxious about how things may turn out.
But my biggest disappointment is about the instruction-booklet, especially about choosing your program. The explanations are extremely poor, yet confusing.
I really couldn't figure out which program would be best for me, and I believe it is not really my job to do hours and hours of endless research across the website or blog or hundreds of reviews or FAQs to get the answer to this basic question.
One could expect better!
Also the drawings are very unprecise and confusing (couldn't understand, for example, if I have to put 2 electrodes on one ankle or one on each (but which position then?) or 2 on each).
I also have a question:
as I have little time, I use the Kegel8 whilst sleeping (when I go to bed at night I use to be really tired, so I cannot help but fall asleep pretty fast / and in the morning I'm setting the alarm 45min before I have to get up and then I fall asleep again too). As far as I understand there should be no problem with this, as we haven't to concentrate whilst using it, but can you actually confirm this fact?
So, sorry to give only 2 stars at the moment.
This hopefully might change in the near future...
Thank you for your feedback - I do understand your frustration with the time in improvement, but as you say you have only been using it for 6 weeks - we do ask that you use it for at least the 12 weeks - your body has weakened over many years and it is vital that you rebuild your strength slowly and safely.
You mention that you find the instructions for choosing a programme not very useful - we have created a Quick Start Guide http://www.kegel8.co.uk/downloads/instructions/en/9475-IFUS.pdf here programmes are grouped (incontinence, sensation, prolapse) so that it is easier to narrow down the programmes.
Over the years Kegel8 has pioneered the inclusion of new programmes for all the major pelvic floor conditions - we have increased the number and choice of programmes from 11 to 20 to reflect this as new Clinical data is published (we have to use published clinical data for our programmes to comply with our medical certification)
With the diagrams and drawing we try to be precise as possible, but when referring to the placement of skin electrodes there is no exact science, because all our bodies are different but I have noted your comments. The electrodes as shown in the diagram on page 25 of the instructions show two electrodes on one ankle and this is how it should be used.
When using Any NMES machine we recommend you leave 8 hours in-between all treatments. this is crucial in the recuperation and strengthening of the pelvic floor muscles. An exhausted pelvic floor muscle will not get strong.
I hope this is of help, please continue with your routine and by the middle e of January I am sure you will notice definite improvements - when we hope that you will return to give the Kegel8 a 5 star review.

- I am delighted with my new purchase! Review by Anon
- marked improvement in very short time. Review by Heatherjoy
- Quick results Review by Jo
I only bought it 4 days ago but already my husband says that he can tell a difference when we have sex.
Though I havn't noticed a difference with the other incontince problems yet.
It's v easy to use & not at all uncomfortable. The only reason I've deducted a star is because it isn't easy to work out which programme settings I would need for my particular needs.
The instruction manual is easy to follow but lacks information so after completeing programme 1 & 2 for sensitivity testing I've not been able to work out which programmes I should now follow. For that reason I've deducted a star.
Having done some research online I have discovered that other people too had the same problem & posted their questions in the Kegel Q&A section. Here I found the answers which are
stress incontince Programme 10
improve sensation during sex Programme 8
for general pelvic floor improvement Programme 3, ” (Posted on 9 September 2014)
- I will use this until they put a nail in my coffin. Review by Caroline - Ottawa
I have used it every day and used program 1 and 2 each day.
When this prolapse first occurred, I hated going to the washroom because I had to reposition the prolapse every time. Having a shower was the same issue.
I now have no issues with the washroom, the prolapse does not occur. Until just recently at the end of the shower the prolapse would be present, I would push it back in and it is always after the shower that I use the kegel 8. I just got out of the shower today, and for the first time no prolapse occurred at all.
I can't thank you enough for the kegel 8. I have bought various probes. I have just purchased one of your newest ones.
I will use this until they put a nail in my coffin. ” (Posted on 29 July 2014)
