FAQs

How can I tell if the exercise is working?

As you exercise, you will become more aware of your vaginal muscles and will be able to perform more squeezes with increasing ease. When your exercises become easy, it’s time to increase the intensity of your exercise (see Exercise Programmes above). More...

What if I can’t squeeze the PelvicToner closed?

First, check that you are using it correctly – go over the instructions carefully and, in particular, check that you are using it so that it opens up and down (not side to side). You may not be able to squeeze the toner fully closed straight away, but as long as you can feel some closing movement if you hold the handle lightly, you are using the correct muscles. More...

Should I worry about soreness?

The PelvicToner may produce some soreness or a slightly uncomfortable feeling, but no more than exercising any other body part. If it hurts stop and allow the muscles to recuperate, before trying again. It will help enormously if you are relaxed and well lubricated before you begin. If soreness persists stop exercising and consult your doctor. More...

How do I clean my PelvicToner?

Hand wash with soap and water before and after use, or use your dishwasher. Wash springs in warm water, but do not soak. NEVER use any form of bleach. More...

Can I use the PelvicToner during pregnancy?

We have followed the advice of many experts and midwives and suggest that the PelvicToner should not be used during pregnancy or until the new mum is 'signed off' by her midwife. Using the PelvicToner is far less intrusive than having sex during pregnancy but in this litigious age one has to err on the side of caution. More...

What is stress incontinence?

In stress incontinence, urine leaks out occasionally when doing such things as coughing, sneezing, lifting, or exercising because the increase in pressure in the abdomen puts 'stress' on the bladder More...

What are Kegel exercises?

First published in 1948 by Dr. Arnold Kegel, a pelvic floor exercise, more commonly called a Kegel exercise, consists of repeatedly contracting and relaxing the muscles that form part of the pelvic floor, now sometimes colloquially referred to as the "Kegel muscles" More...

Who is Arnold Kegel?

Arnold Kegel introduced his eponymous pelvic floor exercise programme in 1948 following extensive research with thousands of women suffering from stress incontinence and sexual dysfunction brought on by pelvic floor weakness. More...

How does the PelvicToner help?

The PelvicToner was designed as a self help device for women of all ages to make the pelvic floor (Kegel) exercises developed and promoted by Arnold Kegel much more effectiv More...

Why doesn't the NHS do something about it?

Post-natal care is very child-focussed and the NHS does not have an effective, proactive, post-natal pelvic floor rehabilitation programme. This means that around 5000 new mothers every week are at risk of long-term stress incontinence More...

What is urge incontinence?

Urge incontinence means that a woman is unable to hold her urine when there is a strong need to urinate. Women that suffer from U.I. also tend to have more urinary tract infections and skin problems than other women More...
