Shannon's Story

Story at a glance

  • Shannon was suffering with urge and frequency incontinence..
  • It didn't take Shannon long to notice improvement.
  • Shannon used the Kegel8 Ultra Vitality to get these results.

I had frequency and urge incontinence and no children.

As far back as age 30 I was running to the toilet hourly and friends would say they had never seen anyone go as often as me. It was embarrassing but manageable.

Fast forward to about 2010/2011, now aged 52/53. I was having a leak of about a teaspoon when I sat down, coughing as you can imagine was much worse.

As far back as age 30 I was running to the toilet hourly. It was embarrassing but manageable.

When I started using the Kegel8 Ultra Vitality it worked immediately

I was going to the toilet so often, for small amounts, sometimes just a teaspoon.

When I first purchased the Kegel8 Ultra Vitality I still remember it was like it pulled everything into place and it seemed to stay there for hours. It was about 4 hours before I needed to pee again. I followed the advice to do it daily for a few months and it was 2-3 months until things were well toned. Then I did programmes 6 and 7 once a week and also programme 9 once a week.

I use the Kegel8 Ultra Vitality after work and get into bed with a book so if anyone walks into the bedroom no problem. If I slip and forget it for a while I notice I am going to the toilet more often again.

It is something I need to keep up for life which I am very happy to do. Much easier than surgery. I have never had any problems with rectal incontinence, my problems were probably started by going to the toilet 'just in case' before long bus journeys home.
