Spring has definitely sprung and whilst we feel energised by the lighter nights and the bright mornings, there's no getting away from the dreaded allergies that this time of year brings for so many of us!
Our eyes are leaking, our nose is leaking and more annoyingly, our bladder is leaking! But let's turn this into a positive...
We’ve not ran a competition for a while and given it’s Easter we’d like to give you a treat!
We’re giving away a set of our most popular Kegel8 Vaginal Cones and 12 Week Pelvic Floor Strengthening Plan. You get 3 cones, of 3 different weights and sizes, a beginners and advanced exercise plan and a whole lotta motivation! Kegel8 Vaginal Cones are unique – they feature an indicator wand which moves when you squeeze your pelvic floor muscles, telling you when you are doing your Kegels right or, more importantly, wrong.
Protective underwear? What is that, you ask?
Let us introduce you to Dear Kate, sophisticated, stylish protective underwear with patent-pending fabric to keep you confident while you get into the habit of using your Kegel8 and strengthen your pelvic floor.
A recent survey by Which? UK found 7/10 mums who used a labour TENS machine found it helped reduce the pain of giving birth.
Not only is Kegel8 Mother Nurture a fantastic labour TENS with a boost button, helping you through contractions, it is also a pelvic toner to strengthen your pelvic floor before and after pregnancy.

The sun is shining through the Kegel8 office windows and it’s clear that spring has most definitely sprung!
We love the lighter nights and light mornings, but along with the sun comes allergies, and more specifically, thanks to the rise in pollen counts as the plants start to bloom, hay fever, which affects more than 10 million of us in England alone. That’s almost one in five of us who suffer yearly coughs, watery eyes and the almost-constant sneezing that comes with the rise in pollen counts. For most of us, hay fever is an inconvenience that can be controlled with simple over-the-counter remedies, but for those of us suffering from pelvic floor weakness, it’s a whole different story…
Monday 28th April sees the start of Allergy Awareness Week, and we’re raising awareness of nickel allergies. Do you find that after wearing metal jewellery your skin becomes red, itchy or inflamed? Are you one of the many women who can only wear gold because anything less will leave your ears sore? Or, do you find that the button on your jeans leaves you with a red mark on your stomach?
Chances are, this is your skin having an adverse reaction to the nickel in the metal, but many women don’t realise that they have a nickel allergy until they use their Kegel8 for the first time and find that they experience discomfort due to the nickel found in medical grade probes. But we've found the solution…
It seems like everything causes cancer these days. Just last week there were reports citing mouthwash as a potential risk. That’s right; mouthwash! Isn’t that what we use to kill germs and keep our mouths healthy?
There’s not a day that goes by without news of something we’ve enjoyed or undertaken for years threatening to cause us harm. So, how do we know what we should and shouldn’t be doing? Well, there’s a definite difference between being paranoid and being vigilant. That’s why the entire month of April has been declared as annual Bowel Cancer Awareness Month; so that you have the facts.
