If you're experiencing pelvic floor muscle issues such as incontinence, Kegel exercises can be a game-changer.

Urinary Incontinence: learn the power of Kegel exercises

While there is a misconception that vaginal weights can be helpful in preventing these disorders, research studies have shown that both weighted and non-weighted Kegel exercises lead to similar improvements in muscle strength, control, and overall quality of life. So why not take advantage of a safe and effective method to avoid the embarrassment and discomfort of incontinence?

So let's dive in and learn how you can strengthen your pelvic floor muscles using Kegel exercises to live a happy, healthy life!

Β 

Build a stronger pelvic floor with easy-to-use vaginal weights

Taking care of our pelvic floor muscles is so important, and it turns out that using vaginal weights may be able to help! Vaginal weightlifting is a form of exercise in which women use small weighted cones or dilators inserted into the vagina to stimulate and strengthen the pelvic floor muscles. This is a great way for women to take control of their health and potentially prevent pelvic floor disorders like stress urinary incontinence (S.U.I.) or pelvic organ prolapse (P.O.P.).

The effective and easy way to prevent pelvic floor problems


Strengthen and tone your pelvic floor muscles in just 15 minutes a day


Pelvic floor weights are a great way to control and strengthen issues with the pelvic muscles. It begins by slowly inserting a set of weighted objects into the vagina, which causes the pelvic floor muscles to contract and hold in the weight for approximately one to two seconds. Provided you keep this up for roughly 15 minutes, twice a day, you should soon be able to move onto the next set of heavier weights without difficulty. This simple contraction and release exercise is an effective preventative measure against pelvic floor related issue

Β 

Simple, affordable, and effective pelvic floor exercise

Strengthening the pelvic floor muscles doesn't have to be complicated or expensive. The data indicates that Kegel exercises are just as effective as using weights, so if you're looking for a simpler approach without all the bells and whistles, Kegels are the way to go. If weights appeal to you more, they can still be an option, but it's important to use a medical grade set and make sure it is properly cleaned after use. And if you were considering jade eggs for this purpose – despite what you may have heard – these should not be used for improving your pelvic floor health.

Address underlying issues for lasting results

Many women might think that adding weights to their Kegel exercises would be the answer if they’re not seeing progress - but this isn’t necessarily the case. A lot of women find it hard to identify and engage the correct muscles with Kegel exercises, or may even have underlying issues such as muscle tears that need addressing before improved results can be seen. To get the help you need, your best bet is to get in touch with a urogynecologist and physical therapist who both specialize in pelvic floor disorders – they will understand your needs better than any general doctor, and provide you with tailored advice on how to move forward.

Conclusion

The natural solution for a stronger, healthier bladder

While it is a fairly common occurrence and it may cause no symptoms, pelvic organ prolapse (POP) can bring on bothersome issues in certain women. One of the most common signs of POP is a vaginal bulge. Fortunately, some exercises can help you treat the symptoms of prolapse to improve your quality of life. Pelvic floor muscle training (also called Kegel exercises) can be an effective therapy for stress urinary incontinence as well as POP. You can either do them without weights or add weights when you exercise for even better results. Make sure to consult your doctor first before beginning any physical activities!
