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.
So you’ve been told that you need to do your pelvic floor exercises? Maybe you’ve just had a baby, maybe you’re suffering from some leaks, or maybe you just want to get your muscles strong, healthy and in great shape.
But, it’s not always easy to do your manual pelvic floor exercises, and every day we get calls from Kegel8 ladies asking for advice about whether they are using the right muscles, how often they should be exercising and how long they should be ‘lifting and squeezing’ for. That’s where a Kegel8 manual pelvic floor toner comes in.
At Kegel8 we offer more than just the UK's leading range of pelvic floor toners - we offer support and information to women and men for the best in pelvic health. But to do this we need your support.

Oh to have the luck of the Irish!
We know that the odd glass of Pinot Noir with our evening meal is harmless. Indeed, a single glass of red wine could actually be good for us. And we’ve all met those people who insist they could live on Guinness, because it’s “full of iron”.
Well, it’s true that an alcoholic beverage here and there won’t do us any harm; but where do we draw that all important line? What if one drink turns into two, then three, then... alright; you get the picture. But, today is one of the biggest drinking days of the year, and we’re certainly not suggesting that everyone becomes teetotal; it’s how we manage it and take care of ourselves that counts.
With the launch of the NEW Kegel8 Mother Nurture we've been talking to you about life in the bedroom for you and your partner after children - and with 1 in 4 couples no longer having sex, the results make for a pretty fascinating read...
Are you fanatical about fags, crazy about cigarettes, or simply a victim of your own dependency? There’s no doubt about it; when it comes to smoking, giving in to temptation is a risky business.
We’re all aware of the heath implications; they’ve been well documented over the years. Why then, do so many of us continue in pursuit of our daily nicotine ‘fix’ regardless?
There's more to losing weight than just going on a diet right? We all know to exercise and eat 'clean' but then there's the secret tips to help you along that little bit more; tips that aren't always common knowledge like putting your knife and folk down in between bites at meal times, having a drink of water before you eat, getting 8 hours of quality sleep a night... I am sure you could all share more!Well it's the same when it comes to strengthening your pelvic floor muscles - yes, your kegel exercises are a definite MUST but there is more you can do to help...
Ladies, we all know what the menopause is, but did you know that our bodies enter a stage called perimenopause as much as 10 years before the ‘true’ menopause (which we don’t ‘officially’ enter until we haven’t had a period for 12 months). Read on to learn more about the perimenopause, and learn even more about it from a singing uterus in the video below (yes really!)…
HRT, or hormone replacement therapy, is one of the most commonly prescribed medications today, and is often recommended to post-menopausal women as a way of preventing urinary incontinence.
However, studies have shown that HRT may actually be making the problem worse…
We’re into the first week of February, and if you made a new year’s resolution to get fitter and healthier in 2017, how’s it going?
One of our recent Kegel8 reviewers said that she started her Kegel8 exercise routine ‘due to a combination of childbirth and hormone imbalance’ and that her weak pelvic floor is only a problem for her when she jogs or exercises. Do you suffer from this problem too?
