1. Pelvic Floor Recovery After Hysterectomy

    Undergoing a hysterectomy is a life changing experience. 1 in 5 UK women will have a hysterectomy by the age of 60 yet it seems to be one of those taboos that are never discussed! This leads to many women not having the information they need to make the right lifestyle choices. Here at Kegel8 we believe that women’s health issues aren’t something that should be swept under the rug. Given our specialism in the workings of the pelvic floor, we wanted to create a guide especially for those of you who’ve had hysterectomies. We hope that this information will empower you to feel in control of your body post-surgery and live a full and happy life!

  2. Prolapse Surgery

    Uterine Prolapse - Kegel8 Can Help

    Pelvic organ prolapse occurs when one of your pelvic organs ‘drops’ because it is no longer held in the correct position. There are four stages of prolapse, 1 being the mildest and 4 being the most severe – stage 3 and 4 are also known as procidentia, which means the prolapsed organ protrudes out of the body.

    Any pelvic organ can prolapse, and common prolapse conditions include bladder prolapse (cystocele), urethral prolapse, uterine (womb) prolapse, vaginal vault prolapse, bowel prolapse (enterocele) and rectal prolapse (rectocele).

    Before resorting to surgery, there are other, more conservative treatment options for prolapse, including pelvic floor exercise (which we of course recommend strongly) and the use of a vaginal pessary. However, if your surgeon decides...

  3. Surgery For Fibroids

    Uterine Fibroids - Importance of Kegel ExerciseFibroids, or uterine fibroids, are small growths that grow in and around the womb. They are non-cancerous and most of the time, women don’t even know that they have them. Fibroids are often discovered by chance during routine pelvic examinations or scans. However they can also cause problems such as pain or heavy bleeding.

    If fibroids cause problems, they can be treated with medication, however if this is not successful, surgery may be recommended.

    Types of Fibroids

    Intramural fibroids - grow in the uterine wall and are the most common type of fibroid.

    Submucosal fibroids - grow on the inside of the womb (uterus) and extend into the uterine cavity.

    Subserol fibroids - grow on the lining between the uterus and the pelvic cavity (outisde of the womb).
