World Continence Week? Have you been keeping up with the Kegel8 Top 5 Tips?
This year, we are doing better than giving away tips, we will be giving away a set of our fabulous Kegel8 Vaginal Cones, absolutely free!
May 2014 sees the start of National Share-a-Story Month, an annual celebration of the power of storytelling and story sharing and we want you to get involved to help other women and be in with a chance of winning £50 to spend at John Lewis…
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.
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...
