Bowel Incontinence

Kegel8 for Bowel Incontinence

Bowel problems are much more common than most people think, and bowel incontinence is one of the more distressing bowel problems people can suffer.

Faecal incontinence can range in severity, ranging from passing a small piece of stool when passing wind, through to complete loss of bowel control. But no matter the severity of the problem, bowel incontinence can really damage self-esteem and quality of life.

If you are suffering bowel incontinence, it’s important not to just wear incontinence pads and hope the problem will go away, it’s important to see your doctor to establish the cause, and Kegel exercise to strengthen your pelvic floor. A strong pelvic floor means that your muscles can better support your pelvic organs and help to prevent faecal incontinence.

Bowel Incontinence Symptoms

  • Passing a small stool when passing wind
  • Complete loss of bowel control
  • Diarrhoea
  • Stomach pain
  • Urinary incontinence

Causes of Bowel Incontinence

  • Rectal problems such as constipation, diarrhoea or rectal cancer
  • Problems with the sphincter such as muscle damage or damage caused by difficult childbirth
  • Nerve damage caused by conditions such as MS, stroke, spina bifida or diabetes

What Can Be Done To Help?

If you are suffering bowel incontinence it’s important to see your doctor to see if there is an underlying cause. It is also important to strengthen your pelvic floor. A major cause of bowel incontinence is weak pelvic muscles and nerve damage in the rectal area and you may find that pelvic floor exercise can improve bowel incontinence or even stop it altogether.

The Kegel8 Ultra 20 works with both a vaginal probe and an anal probe to effectively target the rectal and sphincter muscles as well as the pelvic floor muscles to help with bowel incontinence as well as the usual fantastic Kegel8 Ultra 20 programmes for stress incontinence, urge, prolapse and more.

Comes complete with an easy exercise plan, created by Amanda Savage, to get results in 12 weeks!

Deemed by many as a taboo topic of conversation, we could be fooled into thinking that far fewer people suffer with excess gas/wind and a lack of bowel control than actually do! In fact, it is thought to affect 1 in 10 people in the UK at some point during their lives, many of whom are too embarrassed to discuss it or seek advice. Here at Kegel8, we are all too familiar with the impact it has on both physical and emotional well-being, as well as on life in general. Indeed, the humiliation and anxiety felt can prevent us from going about our everyday lives as normal, leading to a lack of social interaction with friends and family. Oftentimes, this can lead to low-mood and even depression. And, sadly, because many are too embarrassed to seek advice, a lack of bowel control can be left untreated and worsen over time. However, it should by no means be accepted as an inevitability! Indeed, regular pelvic floor exercise has been proven to strengthen the muscles responsible for supporting the bowel over time, enabling them to perform their role much more effectively and, therefore, reduce gas/prevent leakages. That means you can get back to doing all the things you love!

The easy exercise plan included with your Kegel8 Ultra 20 has been specifically created by Amanda Savage to improve bowel control and reduce excess gas/wind. It not only ensures the efficacy of pelvic floor exercise when using your Kegel8 Ultra 20, it actively encourages the user to practise contracting their muscles alongside the machine, instructing them to focus on the back area (as if stopping wind) at the appropriate times, which prepares them for ‘real life’ scenarios when they don’t have access to the machine.

So, why opt for an electronic pelvic floor exerciser rather than performing your Kegels independently?

It is thought that many women push downwards when performing independent pelvic floor exercises, which, rather than strengthening the muscles, can lead to further damage. In addition, it can be difficult to locate and target the correct muscles, particularly when focusing more on the back area, making exercise less effective. As such, many women opt to use an electronic pelvic floor toner to ensure effective exercise and optimum results. The Kegel8 Ultra 20 V2 Electronic Pelvic Toner removes the guesswork and essentially acts as a Sat-Nav for your pelvic floor muscles, correctly targeting and stimulating a contraction within them. These contractions build strength and tone in a matter of weeks! With 20 clinically proven pelvic floor exercise programmes which vary in frequency, intensity and duration, the Ultra 20 is proven to treat a variety of different conditions, including a lack of bowel control and excess gas/wind. And, in addition to tailored programmes, the specific 12-week exercise plans created by Amanda Savage advise exactly how the device should be used, depending upon the condition, to ensure the very best treatment.
