A new drug is in the works that is reported to halve the number of hot flushes in menopausal women.
The drug, MLE4901, was previously developed as a treatment drug for schizophrenia, but now researchers at the Imperial College of London are using the drug in an attempt to combat menopausal symptoms, as an alternative to hormone replacement therapy (HRT).
It is likely to be several years before results from large-scale studies emerge to tell us the long-term efficacy of this new drug. However, in the meantime, you can learn how to have a happy, healthy and natural menopause with Kegel8.
Often pushed to the side by a wall of taboo, erectile dysfunction is a common condition that affects an estimated 152 million men worldwide, and that is expected to grow to 332 million within a few years.
If you have trouble in gaining and maintaining an erection and want to know how to solve your problems naturally without the intervention of drugs, read on to learn how Kegel8 can help you.
Sexual health and wellbeing is a topic that, as of recent, is making its way into the spotlight. The dense walls of taboo have slowly been chipped away at, and now we’re finally making a breakthrough.
Last week, Lucie from the Lucie Loves blog featured Kegel8 and the Kegel8 Ultra 20 Electronic Pelvic Toner in an attempt to take control of her pelvic health.
With the help of Kegel8, Lucie made a direct effort to future-proof her pelvic floor muscles. Not only did she find that a stronger pelvic floor can increase sexual sensation, but that she could also use the electrode pads to provide relief from period pain.
Despite there being over 47,000 cases each year in the UK, most men are still unaware of the risks of prostate cancer.
Over 92% of men don’t have a clue as to what the prostate gland does, 54% don’t know where it’s located, and 17% of men don’t even know they have one!
Well today we’re going back to school as Kegel8 teaches you all about your prostate; notepads at the ready…
Fathers, husbands, brothers, friends. At least one person that we know is facing a health crisis that isn’t being talked about. It’s time for men to take action on their health.
A common misconception – men do have a pelvic floor and it needs the same level of maintenance that women’s do! Without a pelvic floor, you wouldn’t be able to hold in urine, prevent your wind or faeces escaping, or gain or maintain an erection. So, yes, it’s pretty vital for day-to-day activities.
If your pleasure levels in the bedroom are on a downhill slope, and you notice little leaks here and there, you’ll be left wondering how can you fix everything? These are warning signs that you are suffering from weak pelvic floor muscles.
Recently, the popular magazine, Health & Wellbeing, detailed the importance of reducing your risk of incontinence, boosting core strength, and improving your sex life through pelvic floor exercises.
Kegel8 and the menopause received a huge amount of attention yesterday, with mentions across multiple media channels including Radio 4’s Women’s Hour, Glamour Magazine, Hull Daily Mail, BBC Radio Humberside, and even the House of Commons!
With discussions happening in the House of Commons (finally!) and radio segments dedicated to discussing the menopause, here at Kegel8 we’re excited about the strides we’re making when it comes to lifting the lid on the menopause. But there’s still a way to go…
During the past two decades, thousands of women have turned to vaginal mesh implants in the hopes of treating pelvic organ prolapse and stress urinary incontinence. The promise of a pelvic floor miracle drew many women in, yet none of them ever expected the agony that they were to be left in.
The usage of vaginal mesh in pelvic organ prolapse and stress urinary incontinence surgery has caused chronic pain for thousands of women, so why was it ever approved as a safe method of treatment?
As we age, it seems that everything progressively goes downhill. Your skin, your libido, your pelvic floor. This is the fault of the dreaded, unavoidable phenomenon that is menopause. Does it instil you with fear? Well, what if we told you that Kegel8 could help this World Menopause Day?
Set up by the British Menopause Society, World Menopause Day aims to highlight the impact of menopause on every aspect of women’s lives in the UK.
Menopause often carries a negative stigma. Whether it’s the mood swings, or the hot sweats, menopause and its symptoms are considered a taboo topic and shunned from the spotlight.
But, that is starting to change.
A collaboration between Hot Flush and #PelvicRoar sees the launch of the brand-new #PositivePause campaign this October. Born through the lack of credible menopausal information for women, the campaign aims to raise awareness of where women can learn about menopause correctly.
