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?
Weak Pelvic Floor
- 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 Steele
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.

- 2nd review of my Kegel Ultra 20 Review by Louie
Dear Louie, THANK YOU so much for sharing your journey with us - it really does help other women make an informed choice and hopefully spur them onto strengthening their body and avoiding surgery. Keep on with the exercising, and the gardening jobs - and keep getting strong! Fiona@Kegel8 (Posted on 10 July 2014)
- Fantastic product. Bought cheaper version and didn't have impact kegel8 ultra 20 has had! Review by Marie
Whilst I wasn't leaking, I no longer have the sense of urgency or feeling of heaviness that I constantly need to go to the ladies room. I will be using this religiously forever on whatever programme it takes to maintain my previously none existent pelvic floor. it has had such a positive impact on me on a daily basis and really works. Thank you kegel8 for a product that is effective!
And thank you Marie for sharing your success with us. It will help other women in a similar situation who like you feel devastated when prolapse is diagnosed, more importantly it will help others to realise that there is a solution to living and coping with prolapse and empowering our bodies back to strength.

- Adapting Kegel8 to work for me Review by Claire
Dear Claire, thank you for sharing your review with us. The programmes we select are clinically proven for all manner of pelvic problems, but this is a great instance where your Physiotherapist has been able to devise a programme that was suited for you (One size does not fit all!) This readily shows how important Physiotherapists can be in helping you to get the best out of the Kegel8 Pelvic Toner. Have you tried one of the gold probes? they really intensify the contraction even more and I am sure you will benefit from the increased contraction. Keep on exercising and I am so pleased that your Kegel8 helps to keep giving you the motivation to keep strong, and good luck with your baby plans!

- Very pelased Review by Dee
I have had 2 babies and a hysterectomy, I only wish I had heard of this 10 years ago as I might not have developed the prolaspe as I was given a sheet of kegel exercises to do post op and told to do them until I felt better never advised to do them for life.
I was experiencing all the problems that go with a rectocele and touch wood these have gone, no longer wear panty liners either.
So I would urge anyone undecided about this to give it a try, (Posted on 1 June 2014)

- why did i not get one before now. Review by lyn
Tryed unsuccessful to do kegal exercises on my own for several months with no improvement.
Roll on 8 weeks ago I got a really bad cough and had a coughing fit in the car which resulted in me wetting really bad, so bad that I had to turn round and drive home and you can imagine how I felt.
So placed a order for the machine after reading the reviews again on next day delivery.
Customer service staff were very helpful but not at all pushy had lots of information and advice on products and advice on how to use machine. so order completed just sit back and wait.
Order arrived on time in descret packaging complete with battery and institutions.
Couldn't wait to try so following instructions started with the sensitivity program as instructed. Must admit it did feel very unusual didn't hurt just funny. Have no been using most days twice a day for stress incontinence and can see results have not had any accidents big or small. Can even sneeze with out incident and even announce this to a friend who uses pads who has now got one as well.
Husband has noticed a difference as well so now going to move on to the different programs. Did notice a good side effect in that even though I don't use pain relief program at all my last period (not regular) took me by surprise as I had no cramps or pains after suffering for years from them. Don't know if it's a one off or not. (Posted on 21 May 2014)
- This product is the solution Review by Ahmed
Doctors was not able to diagnostic why she feels so heavy and barely can walk, this is till the delivery day, when a nurse notice something coming out. Doctor said this is cervical prolapse of 3rd degree and did her Caesarean
After delivery, doctor advice her to do pelvic exercise as treatment, but we are in Middle East and specialists are not so good to know such things, else saying that you will continue to have this till you need a surgery after 10 - 15 years or if you got pregnant again
Now and after one and half month of use, muscles are tighter, she truly feels the difference and much comfortable
I definitely recommend this product, not only for medical purpose but as fix after having a baby.
Thank you for your review, I am so pleased that your wife has befitted from the Kegel8 Ultra 20. We wish you and your family all the very best of good health.
