Frequently asked questions
No, this is contraindicated because a vaginal prolapse might make positioning the Kegel Exercise Weight difficult. We recommend you try an e-stim device like Kegel8 Ultra 20 v2, which has a specially designed 12-week programme and the patented Kegel8 prolapse-friendly internal probe.
Resistance training builds strength and that’s exactly what most pelvic floor muscles need. When pelvic floor muscles are strong they can support the pelvic organs, so the bladder and bowel function correctly and you and your partner get sexual enjoyment. The pelvic floor is your body’s shock absorber, and these muscles need targeted exercises to keep them strong. Using Kegel Exercise Weights means your muscles must work and engage to retain the kegel weight. When you perform a kegel exercise and the wand indicator moves downwards it shows you are moving the correct muscles. Shockingly 1 in 3 women perform kegel exercises incorrectly, thats why this patented indicator wand is your key to achieving results fast.
The patented Indicator Wand will show you instantly! No other Kegel weight works as effectively as this. When the kegel weight is inserted just 2 inches inside the vagina, you perform a Kegel squeeze to stop it dropping out (contract your pelvic floor muscles and lift them) and you’ll see the Indicator Wand move down. It is vital you know you are performing pelvic floor exercises correctly to prevent damage, but more importantly get the best results. When a pelvic floor is weak, it's difficult to move the muscles quickly and effectively - ie to stop leaks and get better sexual sensation. This weighted exercise set has an over 70% success in stopping leaks and strengthening pelvic floor muscles, with kegel8 you know you are exercising properly.
Clinical studies show cured or improved leaks within 6 weeks. Pelvic Floor Muscle Exercising can promote positive long-term effects on leaks, pelvic floor muscle strength and quality of life in post-menopausal women with stress incontinence.
So, just 5 – 10 minutes of exercising every day and you’ll feel the benefit after a couple of weeks. Incidentally, many women report that their partners feel the difference before they do. There’s a Kegel Plan for slow Kegel exercises (endurance, holding on), fast Kegel exercises (quick action needed when sneezing & coughing) and one for advanced Kegel Exercise Weight users too.
This 3-stage pelvic floor muscle strengthening system offers 3 sizes and 3 weights (24g, 37g, 48g) clinically proven to strengthen and reduce leaks and incontinence. The kegel weights work in two ways – your muscle contracts around the Kegel Weight to stop it dropping out, and the muscles have something to squeeze against as you perform a ‘perfect Kegel’ to move the Indicator Wand downwards. You don’t need heavier weights than these as pelvic floor muscles can fatigue very quickly. Our Kegel Weight Exercise Set is a registered medical device, available on NHS prescription and made in the UK from a hypoallergenic body friendly material.
Novelty Ben Wa Balls and Kegel Balls on a long string are novelty items usually inserted too high to be of any benefit. Often made from unsafe materials, they are not medical products therefore cannot make any claims to be so. If it’s not a medical device, please don’t put them anywhere near your body, and if it states 'sold as a novelty only' you know they are not medical devices. Our patented indicator wand ensures you dont place the weight too high in the vagina and if you do, the wand wont move down. If you are looking for a Doctor-recommended, clinically proven device then Kegel8 Weights are the only patented medical device currently available in the UK.
Pelvic floor muscles are approximately 2 inches inside the vagina. Each Kegel Exercise weight is designed to sit in the middle of the pelvic floor muscles. You’ll use resistance exercise to contract against the Kegel weight to hold it in place and squeeze against it. If the Kegel weight falls out, make sure you are using the lightest largest, lightest Kegel weight and start the exercises lying down instead of standing up.
Everyone must start somewhere so don’t be disillusioned – you will soon regain control of the Kegel weight and your bladder too.
