Dr. Stephanie Schull saw her mother suffer from pelvic mesh surgery and researched why. She discovered that doctors recommend pelvic muscle strengthening for prevention and treatment, but most women don't do the exercises correctly, so they turn to high-risk surgery and wearing incontinence pads and diapers. Dr. Schull made Kegelbell to keep women strong, safe, and healthy.
What do Kegelbell women do? Anything they want and they often do! Jennifer Vollmann was one of the first to try Kegelbell. She was curious if it could help her with her bladder leakage she had while exercising after the birth of her daughter. She discovered that Kegelbell eliminated the leakage problem and it also helped her with the pelvic organ prolapse that had bothered her during long runs. Now when she competes in Ironman she can concentrate on what matters.
We love getting questions (admittedly we can have some long answers--but hey we are passionate about this stuff!). Mostly customers want to know how Kegelbell is different. Here are some main points:
1) FDA Registered 2) Medical Grade Silicone USP Class VI 3) The only kegel ball or vaginal weight system with external weight which means more comfortable and more challenging 4) more than twice the weight of the heaviest competitor and with more training levels than any other device
Taboo Target: "Nice women don't think about their private parts."
I lived in France and can tell you they have a more open and healthy attitude about sex. The problem our shyness generates for Americans is that our timid views on sex have also hurt the quality of our lives overall. When the pelvic muscles weaken, and American women let that happen because it involves the taboo muscles of the vagina, then the woman has bladder leakage, gas leakage, fecal leakage, pelvic organ prolapse, in addition to sexual dysfunction.
So being shy about sex is a fine way to be, but please do be bold about protecting your quality of life with a robust pelvic floor exercise routine!
Taboo Target: "Nothing can be done when a vagina gets stretched out by childbirth or age, but maybe surgery."
Who has time to analyze all the vaginal rejuvenation systems? We do, so you don't have to!
We share the 3 best options for vaginal rejuvenation. And we tell you about the ones that aren't so great, so you can get some information not often shared online.
So if you are like 46% of women who after having had given birth worry about vaginal laxity, don't think about vagina tightening surgery or vaginal rejuvenation surgery, before learning about what really works and why.
Taboo Target: "Older women have less interest in sex."
Where did this taboo come from? There is every reason to believe it would get better with age. Especially if the pelvic muscles are kept strong, and made even stronger over time, there is no limit to the new found pleasure a woman at any age can discover. I share some common sense, but not often discussed, reasons why sex can get better with age.
Taboo Target: "It is totally normal for the body to change and to lose control over its basic functions. Just like you can't control a sneeze; you can't control a leak when you sneeze."
True bodies do change, but that does not make all change inevitable and irreversible. Even something that may seem out of your control, like vaginal dryness, can be reversed with toning the muscles. Problem is we don't think that often about the cause behind the change, so we go looking for the wrong way to solve it.
Taboo Target: "Women naturally know how to kegel,"
Kegel exercises can be tricky. Have you ever been instructed to do them? Have you tried to make them a habit in your daily life? Are you confident that you know what they are? We share 4 simple kegel exercise hacks to jumpstart your kegel routine.
The vagina is not made up of just skin, it is an intricate architecture of muscles that must be strong to do many important tasks, like hold back urine and gas, hold up the badder and uterus, and create lubrication, squeeze, and orgasm. Whereas, if your biceps are a little weak, maybe you just don't go around moving furniture. But when your pelvic muscles get weak, things start to slowly fall apart. So to avoid of all those issues, one just needs to exercise the muscles of the vagina!
Taboo Assassin: I am a philosopher taking aim at all the false beliefs standing in our way of being authentically happy and healthy.
Big business keeps women suffering for profit and culture keeps women weak for control. Let's knock down the taboos that were put up to keep this whole charade going.
I am on a mission to make things that matter. I am not alone. Femtech is growing as women are stepping up and creating things that women need.
