Introducing Kelly Chapman! Our newest team member

Stephanie Schull, PhD

Introducing Kelly Chapman! Our newest member of the team and I am so excited to tell you about this amazing woman. Kelly embraces the fact that women can do anything they want and she has done it all! She is a mom, has a business degree from the Kellogg school, she worked for two billionaires, she is a recording artist (the woman can sing), and she owned a mac and cheese restaurant…okay, so she is the perfect woman. Apparently our Instagram ads reached her, because when I was sitting in an airport lounge (not subtle I had a huge Kegelbell...

Strong Pelvic Floor Muscles Can Help You Avoid Pelvic Organ Prolapse

Stephanie Schull, PhD

Picture yourself in ancient Greece, suffering from a bothersome and uncomfortable bulge in your vagina and being told by your esteemed and toga-clad physician to insert half a pomegranate soaked with vinegar into your hoo-ha to ease your discomfort and push the pesky protuberance back into place. Or lifting your heavy, velvet medieval skirts to insert a ball of wax-covered linen, well lubed with oil or butter and intended to keep your troublesome bladder in place. These little treats were called pessaries and were used for centuries to relieve the pain and pressure of pelvic organ prolapse (POP).We’ve come such...

Kegel Balls and Yoni Eggs – Oh My! Why Not All Pelvic Floor Exercisers Are Good For You.

Miss Ruby Reviews Kegelbell

Stephanie Schull, PhD

The Kegelbell Weighted Kegel Training System means business. This isn’t a flimsy love egg masquerading as a health product — It’s truly a weight-lifting regime. What I really like about this system is that it’s so customizable. There’s no one-weight-fits-all. No matter how strong or weak your pelvic floor is, there’s enough variety in difficulty in this package that you’ll be able to find something that suits. It’s not the most exciting process, but weight-lifting never is (at least not for me), so if you’re looking for a no-nonsense kegel strengthening system, this is one to add to your wishlist....

Can women be impotent? Yes, for us it’s vaginal dryness.

Stephanie Schull, PhD

Impotence (in technical terms) is the inability to have penetration. For men, this happens when they’re too flaccid to penetrate. For women, vaginal dryness is what prevents penetration. If you’ve had vaginal dryness, you know it’s game over unless you find something to fill the void of natural lubrication. You may have tried desperately to find a lube-alternative in the moment so you wouldn’t lose that special moment… I will admit I’ve grabbed hand lotion or even cooking oil before! After living with dryness all through my 30’s, now into my late 40’s, my lubrication came roaring back to life,...
