Don’t hold it in! Shout about World Continence Week

Has it already been a whole year since our last post about World Continence Week? Have you been keeping up with the Kegel8 Top 5 Tips? This year, we are doing better than giving away tips, we will be giving away a set of our fabulous Kegel8 Vaginal Cones, absolutely free!

Incontinence is ‘taboo’ across Britain even though a quarter of women over the age of 35 and 1 in 10 men suffer from it in some form, commonly known as laughter leaks. Only around 40% of these will come forward to ask for help. We don’t like it and we don’t like to talk about it.

World Continence Week, by the Bladder and Bowel Foundation aims to increase awareness of the problem. We at Kegel8 are passionate about helping men and women suffering from the embarrassment and inconvenience of ‘laughter leaks’. Our pelvic toners help to strengthen the pelvic floor muscles, leading to greater control.

Kegel8 Vaginal Cones

Kegel8 Vaginal Cones are magnificent at helping you locate the right muscles and perform pelvic floor exercises correctly. Their unique shape means the tail moves down when you clench the correct muscles, giving you visual support for the muscles you can’t see.

The set of 3 cones are different weights, allowing you to have active progression as your pelvic floor gets stronger – giving you control over your body. They are made from body safe silicone and have had fantastic success in clinical trials. Follow this link to find out more.

If you are suffering from incontinence, give us a call. Our friendly Kegel8 advisers are trained to help find the best solutions to your problem and are happy to help. Spread the word about World Continence Week 2014 and help break down those embarrassment barriers.

    It is something that we need to be more aware of, some issues get pushed to the back burner until the problems arise. Better to be knowledgeable and prepared. Thankyou

    Its a great idea to raise awareness of a serious issue. I had to have physio after my first baby and felt really embarrassed about it. Anything that draws attention to the problem can only be a good thing.

  • Denise

    It's fantastic that awareness is being raised on a condition that is very much kept hidden and out of the limelight but one that is suffered by almost everyone at some point in their life.

  • Rachel Chapman

    It's an issue that affects many people, but is often not talked about, so let's spread the word about what can be done!

    I think its something that we all need to be aware of. Theres so many subjects that are taboo, when really making people aware of it, can possibly change their lives for the better

  • Solange

    It's a great idea. People need to be more aware

    Excellent idea to raise awareness of a fairly common problem which lots of people are embarrassed about.

  • Elaine

    To be honest, I had no idea there was such a thing until I came across this post! I think it should certainly be more publicised as more information etc can only be a good thing and its something which is rarely talked about due top people being embarrassed. Well done for highlighting the issue!

  • Nataliejane
    Nataliejane 05/07/2014 at 16:54

    Excellent, more people should know about it as it is often not spoken about.

  • Natalie Gillham

  • Kay Ellerby
    Kay Ellerby 06/07/2014 at 15:38

    Its no point being embarrassed about it, its just something else that as women we go through! But now we can do something about it. No one ever really told me how to do the pelvic floor exercises properly, for years it worked out i was doing it wrong!
