A strong pelvic floor is a healthy pelvic floor, and a more confident YOU!
We should all do our pelvic floor exercises (they’re not just for new mums), so why don’t we? Is it because we don’t have time? We’re an exception to the rule and we actually don’t need to? Or is it, as a recent Kegel8 study revealed, because in fact 50% of women in the UK don’t actually know how to effectively exercise their pelvic floor?
Perhaps this is why ‘laughter leaks’ are so common amongst women and brushed aside as just ‘part of being a woman/new mum/certain age’. The truth is you have two choices; you can ‘pad’ the problem, laugh-off the odd leak in public and allow the problem to get worse; or you can acknowledge that what you are experiencing are the early symptoms of a weak pelvic floor and take control with the Kegel8 Tight & Tone.
How does the Kegel8 Tight & Tone pelvic toner work?
We don’t want to make it sound too good to be true but the Kegel8 Tight & Tone exercises your pelvic floor for you – targeting the right muscles, in the right way; giving you a stronger pelvic floor in just 12 weeks!
Using neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES) the Kegel8 Tight & Tone sends electrical pulses deep into the muscles via a vaginal probe; stimulating your pelvic floor to contract which in-turn builds strength and tone, improves circulation to the area and reinvigorates the muscles.
Kegel8 is the easiest and most effective way to exercise your pelvic floor; while manual pelvic floor exercises (or kegels) target just 40% of the pelvic floor muscle group, the Kegel8 Tight & Tone targets and impressive 90%!
What does it feel like?
The Kegel8 Tight & Tone has 9 pre-set programmes each designed to target the muscles in different ways, to treat different symptoms, and each feel different; whether it’s the gentle fluttering of a muscle relaxation programme, the tapping sensation of your muscle nerves being stimulated or the contraction of a strong workout – you are always in control of the intensity with the easy-to-use controller with plus (+) and minus (-) buttons.
“I certainly feel the muscles contract and release and it is in no way painful” – Review by Keylimepie
Is the Kegel8 Tight & Tone right for me?
The Kegel8 Tight & Tone is right for anyone; our pelvic floor muscles naturally begin to weaken from around the age of 18. You don’t have to wait to experience the signs of pelvic floor weakness such as bladder leaks or a sudden urge to run to the bathroom; Kegel8 Tight & Tone is the perfect way to prevent these symptoms and begin strengthening your pelvic floor as part of a fit and healthy lifestyle.
I already experience leaks
Whilst the proportion of women that suffer ‘laughter leaks’ is high, it isn’t an inevitable part of life/ageing/childbirth as many think. You may instantly consider pads or medication but neither of these options will treat the cause of the leaks (a weak pelvic floor) nor will they make you feel good about yourself! The Kegel8 Tight & Tone targets the cause of embarrassing leaks by strengthening your pelvic floor muscles for a longer-term solution to fix the problem.
I don’t have much feeling ‘down there’
That’s your pelvic floor! It could be weak or even damaged if you’ve been through childbirth. The strength of your pelvic floor muscles correlates directly to your intimate sensation and quality of orgasms so you know what you need to do! When your pelvic floor muscles are weak, they are loose which means nothing feels the same for you and it certainly won’t feel the same for your partner either. In just 12 weeks Kegel8 will strengthen your pelvic floor muscles, giving you more control and sensation during intimacy – and trust us, he’ll probably notice before you do!
Is it true my stubborn ‘pot belly’ could be due to weak pelvic floor muscles?
Yup! Think of your pelvic floor muscles as a hammock of muscles that reach from the front of your body at the pubic bone, to the back at your coccyx. A strong, healthy pelvic floor helps us to maintain good posture and helps draw that tummy in. A weak, saggy pelvic floor can leave us with back ache and a bulging tum.
“One of the enormous advantages I’ve found is I have a flattened stomach and I put it all down to the product [Kegel8]” – Review by Judy

What a great question! One that we are asked so often and we're happy to say you're never too old to benefit from the improvements that can be made to your pelvic floor.
Our Kegel8 Ultra 20 is our best selling unit utilising the most up to date technology. The Kegel8 Ultra 20 helps to relax pelvic floor muscles that become "locked" in pain. Treatment is easy too, if you aren't able to use a vaginal probe you can stimulate points outside your body using electrode pads for fast effective natural pain relief.
You will certainly benefit from using the unit and probe every day and reduce the 'annoying' problem you are experiencing.
Pelvic floor weakness and lack of bladder control is extremely common, with over 1 in 3 women suffering at some point in their lives. Dr Chris Steele says: 'When your pelvic floor is weak and you strain yourself, your bladder will leak any time you sneeze, laugh or cough. Childbirth weakens, tears and damages the pelvic floor muscles and with each subsequent child, it adds insult to injury.
But it's not just childbirth that weakens the pelvic floor. Dr Chris says: 'Once you hit menopause, the oestrogen levels drop and you lose elasticity and tone. Women tend to suffer in silence for an average of five years before they visit their GP. One way to treat pelvic floor problems and bladder weakness is to exercise the muscles. The use of electronic pelvic floor exercisers stimulates the right muscles in the right way for a precise work out.
We wish you the very best of luck1

Birth trauma takes it toll as we get older I am afraid - that's why good births and a good midwife is essential, but you are like many women, silently putting up with the after effects and you will benefit from the exercise that Kegel8 can give you.
I would recommend this because it will help to firstly combat the stress incontinence, tackle this first. 12 weeks, twice a day if possible, but once is OK with the http://www.kegel8.co.uk/kegel8-ultra.html
You have a mild prolapse - the buzz word right now is to 'manage prolapse' this is by far the best choice for most women, by managing it means that it will stop getting any worse (falling down further) but more importantly, stop further prolapses from happening. You don't say what prolapse it is. If it is a bladder/cystocele you are them more likely to suffer from a rectal/rectocele. This is because both sides become weak and like when we dig a hole in the sand - the walls all cave in. This is why strengthening is what you need to do now, to prevent further deterioration.
Please also read this http://www.kegel8.co.uk/blog/2013/10/14/what-else-can-i-do-to-help-my-pelvic-floor/ try to adopt as many of these changes as possible, if you can manage your prolapse, and tackle your stress incontinence you'll be strong to prevent further problems.

I would recommend the Kegel8 Ultra 20, as it is the newest Ultra unit, and works your muscles more effectively and effeciently to the Kegel8 Tight & Tone. The Kegel8 Ultra 20 has dedicated programmes to help with your incontinence and prolapse.
I would also recommend going to see your GP or doctor, so that they can diagnose your prolapse.
I hope this helps,
Having read the details you have given regarding the type of prolapse that you are suffereing with I can say that I would highy recommend that you have a look at the Kegel 8 Ultra 20 unit http://www.kegel8.co.uk/kegel8-ultra.html . This is the best unit in our range and is specifically targetted towards helping to aleviate the symptoms of rectal prolapse. It comes with skin electrodes which can be used with the rectal programs on the unit. These programs will help you to strengthen the muscles in the rectal area and help to improve the condition of the pelvic floor.
This is perfect for you, unless you want to go the next step up to the http://www.stressnomore.co.uk/kegel8-ultra.html - this machine (U20) would be better at tackling the bladder weakness.
Start with the leaks and everything else will strengthen up - guaranteed. Tackle the weakness and lack of control that is probably due to the weakness in your pelvic floor then you will be able to work on your sensation. Your hubby will notice with you strengthening against the leaks - no problem - however the leaks are a danger point for you. Your body is telling you it needs help and support and you need to strengthen up to prevent prolapse.
Hope this helps
Yes it will, look at the http://www.stressnomore.co.uk/kegel8-ultra.html though because it is the strongest machine we have. The buzz word at the moment is .prolapse management' and this must be your mantra moving forward. 1 in 3 surgeries fail and to prevent you having more surgery, or getting another prolapse you need to get strong and support your pelvic organs. As you have a rectal/bowel prolapse you are also more prone to a bladder prolapse. I do not want to frighten you, or make you concerned, just inform you so that you can take the necessary steps to make sure your surgery lasts and you don't have more prolapses.
As well as exercising with a Kegel8 Ultra 20 follow these few simple tips to manage your prolapse
* Posture: good posture can really help your pelvic floor. It’s as simple as BBC – Bum at the Back of the Chair! By correcting your posture, this can really help to take the extra weight and excess pressure off your pelvic floor, which, over time can lead to pelvic floor weakness and even prolapse. Walk tall, and sit with your bum at the back of the chair – it’s easy!
* Vitamin D for Pelvic Floor Vitamin D3: it’s clinically proven that Vitamin D3 helps your pelvic floor. A recent clinical study found that 23% of the women surveyed that had low Vitamin D3 levels reported at least one pelvic floor disorder regardless of their age! Vitamin D3 can also help with period pains, diet and weight loss, and it’s especially important to take a good supplement (such as SunVit-D3 available at Kegel8) at this time of year when there’s less sunlight so our bodies can’t make as much Vitamin D.
* Weight-Loss-For-The-Pelvic-Floor Watch Your Weight: Excess weight puts extra pressure on your pelvic floor that it’s just not designed to carry. Over time, excess weight can weaken your pelvic floor and even lead to prolapse. In a Kegel8 review in The Daily Mail, Dr Mark Slack, Consultant Urogynaecologist from Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge says that fat can infiltrate muscle, weakening it, and a 10% weight loss reduces muscle weakness by as much as 50%!
* Squatty Potty Ecco Constipation: Constipation is really bad for the pelvic floor and straining to go to the toilet puts a lot of extra pressure on those muscles which is something you really want to avoid if you suffer from incontinence or prolapse. Eat plenty of fruit and vegetables, drink plenty of water (at least 2 litres per day) and try using a Squatty Potty (available from our friends at StressNoMore.co.uk) – squatting instead of sitting makes it so much easier to ‘go’.http://www.stressnomore.co.uk/catalogsearch/result/?cat=0&q=squatty

I would definitely recommend the Kegel8 Ultra 20 for you.
It has two dedicated prolapse programmes, and various incontience programmes and will help strengthen your pelvic floor muscles overall.
The Kegel8 Ultra 20 also has a programme to relieve pelvic pain that may help with your lower back pain.
You can use either a vaginal probe or skin electrodes with the Kegel8 Ultra 20, whereas with the older units you have to use a vaginal probe. The Ultra 20 is the newest unit and works your muscles a lot more effectively and efficiently that the previous units.
I hope this helps,
I have suffered with incontinence from a teenager, made worse by the birth of my daughter. I have urge and stress incontinence. I was looking at the Kegel 8 tight and tone and was hoping you can confirm this is the right product for me.
I have been once a day for the past 8 weeks and just wondering how long it takes to see results? I've not noticed a major difference and only one side is working which I can have on 80 anything you could suggest
Thank you for contacting us. Results can be felt usually 12-16 weeks in, depending of course on the results you are trying to achieve. ladies looking to build and develop their muscle tone to combat incontinence, prolapse or lack of sensation can naturally take longer to feel the results. Again, results will also depend on the correct programmes the individual has chosen to run and if the probe is inserted correctly for targeting the muscles. If the probe is inserted too high in to the vagina the muscles that need to be toned can be missed and thus, results not achieved.
After 12 weeks we would recommend increasing to twice a day. Once in the morning and once in the evening. After having a baby there can be some nerve damage or scar tissue that can explain the reason the mA settings are slightly high. Ensuring that the probe is correctly inserted and that only a small amount of lubricant is being used will help the connectivity of the probe to the muscles.
After having a baby, we would recommend with the Tight and Tone device to run a mixture of P05 specifically designed for new mothers. P07 will also help with sensation loss after child birth to tackle any nerve damage and P08 is a general pelvic floor workout. Alternate the programmes so that each area is being covered and to strengthen the pelvic floor in different ways.
I would recommend the Kegel8 Tight and Tone to help strengthen and tighten the vaginal muscles. However, if you find you also have a lack of sensation as well, I would recommend the Kegel8 Ultra Vitality, as it has a specific sensation programme.
I hope this helps,
I have leakages when I cough, and sometimes even when I laugh.
Is this the right product to prevent my pelvic floor muscles from getting any weaker?
Also please could you advise on the difference between a comfort probe as supplied with the Kegel8 Tight & Tone and the vaginal probe I have seen mentioned?
As you have had a hysterectomy, I would direct you to the Kegel8 Ultra 20. Due to the hysterectomy operation you are more likely to prolapse and it is imperative that you strengthen the muscles and ligaments to prevent any further weakness and dropping out of place - this summary of vaginal vault prolapse will help with more information http://www.kegel8.co.uk/glossary/term/vaginal-vault-prolpase/
The Ultra 20 is a more powerful machine, and the structures programme will help you to rebuild your strength gently and effectively. You can also use stimulation outside the body - i.e. tibial nerve stimulation http://www.kegel8.co.uk/articles/pelvic-floor-exercise/tibial-nerve-stimulation.html which works on the nerves to calm an over-active bladder (although you are describing stress incontinence rather than over-active bladder OAB)
You asked the difference between the comfort and another vaginal probe - I am not sure what the other probe is, so I am afraid I am unable to answer properly. The comfort is a great probe for beginners, easy to insert with a larger then average surface area - this means that more muscles are stimulated each exercise session.
Hope this helps
Would you please let me know if I have purchased the correct machine for my prolapse or if I need to select another one instead and how I can change it before I receive it?
Thank you for your help.
Because of your prolapse I would recommend the Ultra 20 - sorry I'm not trying to 'upsell' but I know this would be a better machine for you.
You need to manage your prolapse - you know that, and the Kegel8 Ultra 20 Pelvic Toner will help you to do that more effectively. It is a graduated physiotherapy programme that will help you restore strength back into your pelvic floor. Your main priority also has to be to prevent further organs from prolapsing. I don't want to scare you, I think you understand the importance of where your body is, and you have made moves in the right direction.

The Kegel8 Tight & Tone is an electronic pelvic exerciser, so it stimulates the muscles for you, and don't have to manually "squeeze". You can select different programmes to target and help with different conditions, such as incontinence.
The Kegel8 Trainer is a biofeedback unit; you do the exercises manually by squeezing your pelvic floor muscles, and it gives you a score, on the Squeeze Scale as to how strong your squeezes are.
I hope this helps,
