Menopause - the time where your sex life dies and your blood pressure rises, right? A common misconception about the menopause is that you should wave goodbye to satisfying sex - but that's not the whole truth. Read on to discover Kegel8's top tips for maintaining and increasing the pleasure in the bedroom during the menopause...
How Does the Menopause Affect Sexual Function?
1 in 5 women experience problems with vaginal dryness during sexual intercourse. This can be caused by a lack of libido, insufficient foreplay, stress and more.
For women experiencing perimenopausal or menopausal symptoms, vaginal dryness may be a common issue. The decrease in oestrogen and collagen during the menopausal process lowers the amount of lubrication present in the vagina. But there are a number of solutions you can try to steer away from the Sahara!
Lubricants, oestrogen gels and lubricant vaginal pessaries for dryness are amongst the most popular forms of treatments for vaginal dryness. But, did you know that there's another way to boost sensation down there? Kegels can help to increase intimate sensations AND boost orgasms. Unfortunately, the older you are, the harder it is to master pelvic floor exercises. But with help from Kegel8, you can be a Kegel connoisseur in no time!
Do Kegel Exercises Make You Tighter?
Short answer: yes! Yes! YES!
Long answer: If you perform Kegel exercises regularly, you can make your pelvic floor muscles stronger and your vagina 'tighter'. Unfortunately, 50% of women perform Kegel exercises incorrectly. Dr Pamela Levin, assistant professor of Clinical Obstetrics and Gynecology, says, "some people who think they're doing Kegels correctly are actually pushing, not squeezing."
How To Do Kegel Exercises Correctly
One way in which you can guarantee the effectiveness of your Kegels is to use a biofeedback tool. Kegel8 Vaginal Cones have a unique indicator tail that allows you to see, in real-time, whether you are exercising the muscles correctly or not. As you squeeze and lift, the tail of the cone waves downwards – it’s that easy! Plus, the set comes with three different weighted cones to give your pelvic floor a thorough workout and helps to build your endurance over time.
Over 30% of women cannot correctly recruit their pelvic floor muscles.
If you cannot produce an effective pelvic floor contraction, it’s not the end of the line, extra help is at hand! Electrical stimulation devices, such as the Kegel8 Ultra 20 Electronic Pelvic Toner harness the body’s natural electrical signals to stimulate the pelvic floor muscles and produce an effective contraction all with the push of a button! That means that all of the guesswork is removed, and you can guarantee your pelvic floor gets a great workout every single time.
