Maybe you’ve heard about Kegels before — but why should women spend their precious time doing them? And aren’t they just for older ladies or new mothers?
In reality, we all need a healthy pelvic floor to prevent problems in the future as well as solve issues today. Here are the top six reasons you should start your Kegels now!
A strong pelvic floor gives you longer, stronger, more frequent orgasms. There’s no doubt about it: when you climax, the pelvic floor muscles cause the tense, rhythmic contractions you feel in your lower half. So, the maths is easy — the stronger the muscles, the stronger the contraction!
A Strong Core.
Although it won’t give you abs of steel, a strong pelvic floor means a firmer core with better supported internal organs. Your bladder, bowel and uterus are all held up by the pelvic floor, which in turn stabilizes your abs, back muscles, and spine. Overall, you’ll be looking at better posture, prevention of back injury, and reduction in any back pain. Treat your core the way it deserves and give it a strong foundation!
We recommend you test this out with the other women in your lives. One in three of us will experience bladder leakage at some point in our lives, and the Kegel Angel team reckon that’s a conservative statistic! Check with your mother, grandmother, sisters, and friends — have they ever had a leak?
Your pelvic floor is responsible for holding on to your pee until you’re ready to go. If you’ve had a baby, gone extra hard at the gym, made it through menopause, or just celebrated a big birthday, you might know what can happen when you laugh or cough. Keep the pelvic floor strong and firm to prevent leaks, whether you’re 22 or 72!
Prepare for pregnancy and parenting.
In 2015, nearly 5.1 million European women gave birth! That means millions of women also experienced a weakened pelvic floor and the possible incontinence issues that come with it. Getting your pelvic floor in shape before delivery can reduce your risk of incontinence, shorten labour, and prevent tearing or episiotomies. Post-birth, Kegels will help you get back to a pre-baby body, toning your muscles and keeping everything firm.
Master the menopause.
Fluctuating oestrogen levels give many women hot flushes, vaginal dryness, and the lesser known issue of a weakened pelvic floor. Keeping up with Kegels around the menopause can solve all of these worries, increasing blood flow to the pelvic area and improving moisture levels.
Banish the bloat.
As well as better posture, the core muscles that Kegels help to firm up are essential for a strong, straight posture. Correct posture and a strong pelvic floor will pull your tummy inwards, talking around 5kg off your frame without a single calorie burnt. You could drop an entire dress size!
The catch to Kegels? You have to be doing them correctly. A recent survey by the MAYO clinic found that of the 50% of women aren’t doing their Kegels rights, only targeting around 40% of the pelvic floor. You should also be following a workout plan to target your particular needs — incontinence, sexual satisfaction, core strength, or something else entirely!
The Kegel Angel Balls were created to bless women with a powerful pelvic floor, no special skill or spare time required. It’s smaller and less bulky than other tens-based solutions, and it does the work for you, unlike biofeedback trainers. The Angel also offers different workouts for different intimate issues, so you will see improvements in no time!
The Kegel Angel Balls are ideal for speedy recovery from childbirth or to strengthen your muscles as you age. However, every woman is different, so we advise double-checking with your doctor or physiotherapist if you’re concerned about your specific needs.
Share the Kegel Angel Balls with mums, sisters, grandmas, and every woman you love.
