At the age of 45 after giving birth to two children, a partial hysterectomy at 32, and a more than 20yr career as a nurse I started to realise something was wrong with my body. I was feeling pressure at the vaginal opening and experiencing back pain and after urination dribbles. The longer I was on my feet the worse it got. I went to my doctor who shocked me by saying I had a 2ND- 3rd degree bladder/ vaginal prolapse. I was horrified and terrified. I was told after my hysterectomy that I no longer needed pelvic exams and that was that. My GP explained that the lack of pelvic strength and muscle tone allowed my bladder to drop into the empty space where the uterus used to be. I was told I was quite young for this until you add the factors that I was lifting in my job and had no post op education on the importance of pelvic floor health. I immediately scheduled a repair surgery. I had the surgery that lifted my bladder but the urethral sling did not stop the dribbling and I knew I was still left with a weak pelvic floor.
The doc saying repeat surgery would likely be necessary in 5 yrs, I went on the internet determined this would not happen to me. I tried the kegels and just seemed to be unable to do it correctly. Another search led me to the Kegel8 website. I ordered it and had high hopes. Mean while I was allowed to resume sexual activity and my husband and I immediately realized when everything was lifted the REAL weakness was exposed. There was no pleasure. I thought our sex life was doomed. I received my Kegel8 Ultra 20 and immediately started. My husband was completely satisfied in just 3 weeks saying it all felt normal again, but I kept going. I did the full 12 week treatment trying 3 different probes and not only is my pelvic floor strong and the dribble gone, but I realize I could have avoided the whole surgery had I known about this product first.
I don't know why we turn a blind eye to this women's issue but this is an amazing tool for woman with a variety of issues and I am telling every woman I know about this, including one Co worker who had a hysterectomy right when I had my repair. She thanked me for telling her what her doc did not and said she was ordering one to use as soon as she could. Women all over the world need to know they do NOT have to wear depends or pads and accept it as getting older like TV and even doctors are telling us. You can absolutely take your pelvic health into your own hands. I just can't say enough about how this little machine has improved my life. I will NEVER let my pelvic health slide again. The program works and the maintenance is so simple. I recommend every woman have one of these.
