Kegel Toys: A Fun Approach to Strengthening Your Pelvic Floor

Kegel exercises are often associated with postpartum recovery or managing urinary incontinence, but they offer benefits for all genders. Adding excitement to these exercises, Kegel toys provide a playful twist. Here's a closer look at what they are, how they work, and their benefits:

Understanding Kegel Toys

Kegel toys, also known as pelvic floor exercisers, are devices crafted to strengthen pelvic floor muscles. Typically, they consist of a weighted ball or cone inserted into the vagina or anus.

How Kegel Toys Work

Kegel toys enhance Kegel exercises by adding resistance, making them more effective. Inserted, they pressure pelvic floor muscles, prompting contraction and relaxation during exercises. Most toys include a removal string for ease.

Benefits of Using Kegel Toys

  1. Improved Bladder Control: Strengthening pelvic floor muscles enhances bladder control, reducing or eliminating urinary incontinence.
  2. Enhanced Sexual Pleasure: Stronger pelvic floor muscles lead to intensified orgasms and better vaginal muscle control, enriching sexual experiences.
  3. Prevention of Prolapse: Regular use can prevent prolapse, where pelvic organs descend from their normal position, by maintaining muscle strength.

How to Use Kegel Toys

  1. Start with a Smaller Toy: Beginners should opt for smaller, lighter devices to avoid discomfort or muscle strain.
  2. Use Lubricant: Apply water-based lubricant for easier insertion and removal. 
  3. Choose a Comfortable Position: Insert the toy while lying down, standing, or squatting, finding what feels best for you.
  4. Contract Your Pelvic Floor Muscles: As you use the toy, contract and release pelvic floor muscles to strengthen them.
  5. Gradually Increase Time and Intensity: Start with short sessions and gradually increase duration and intensity.
  1. Clean Before and After Use: Maintain hygiene by cleaning the toy with warm water and mild soap or toy cleaner.
  2. Be Patient: Consistency is key; be patient with progress.  
  3. Consult a Healthcare Provider: If unsure, seek professional advice for safe use.
  4. Experiment with Different Types: Try various types, such as balls, weights, or vibrators, to find what suits you best.
  5. Incorporate into Daily Routine: While a great addition, remember to continue Kegel exercises without the toy for a comprehensive pelvic floor workout.

By incorporating Kegel toys into your routine, you can make pelvic floor exercises more enjoyable and reap the benefits of stronger pelvic floor muscles. Remember to listen to your body, stay consistent, and consult a healthcare provider if needed.
