Wearing Pads Will Fast Track You into a Care Home

As soon as we begin to walk, the involuntary loss of urine is socially stigmatising. Whether this is in school, at work, or in the nursing home – incontinence is a taboo that we must hide.

We can go to great lengths to hide the fact that we suffer from urinary incontinence. We wear black – wet patches will be less noticeable. We use sanitary protection products – we’d rather pad the problem than talk about it! Sound like you? It’s time to face the music and end your suffering once and for all. Read on to learn all about how incontinence affects us when we age.

Are You the Thing That Goes Bump in the Night?

Imagine – you’re laying, all cosied up, in your bed. You’ve just got into a comfortable position and have drifted into dreamland. Then, wham! That pesky little bladder of yours wants to go on a midnight adventure to the bathroom. Sure, it’d be ok if it was a one off – but no! You find yourself taking trips to the bathroom maybe twice or more each night!

Are the Government Planning to Give a Schizophrenia Treatment Drug to Menopausal Women?

Are the Government Planning to Give a Schizophrenia Treatment Drug to Menopausal Women?

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.

Three Generations of Kegeling with Kegel8

Three Generations of Kegeling with Kegel8

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.
