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.
Today marks the start of sexual health week 2018. The campaign, organised by the family planning association, runs from 24th to 30th September. The sexual health charity aims to provide support and information on healthy relationships, sex, contraception, STI’s, and this year’s topic, consent.
Consent is the key factor that underpins sexual health and wellbeing and can often be the unfortunate link between sex and diseases; such as pelvic inflammatory disease. In order to raise awareness of the dangers of pelvic inflammatory disease, the team at Kegel8 have produced a useful guide to help you understand the disease.
As we age, it often becomes harder to maintain a youthful and exciting relationship, especially in the bedroom. The weakening of essential muscles and tissues can lead to an array of problems that can cause a strain on both your relationship and your health.
The Mail Online article reveals top tips on how to be a super-ager through expert advice for building a lasting relationship, new relationships, and how to boost your sex life whilst ageing.
The big ‘C’ word can often be scary, but it’s vital that we know the tell-tale signs to help to reduce the risk. There are more than 360,000 new cancer cases in the UK every year, that’s nearly 990 each day! Unfortunately, more than 21,000 women are diagnosed with one of five forms of gynaecological cancer each year in the UK.
The team at Kegel8 want to spread awareness of the taboo topic for women without shame or embarrassment. It’s important to #KnowYourBody, so read on to learn about the five types of gynaecological cancers; Cervical, Ovarian, Vaginal, Vulval and Womb.
