Silicone Kegel Ball Set – 2 piece
This quality kegel ball set (ben-wa balls) contains a single and a double ball set in individual harnesses.
These balls are made from medical grade seamless silicone, meaning they are completely body safe and 100% waterproof.
The interior balls are solid steel, providing the perfect weight and quiet rumbling for an ideal pelvic floor / vaginal wall workout. Use the single ball to start and work up to the double set! If you have a really weak floor, you may find you can’t hold the ball/s in for long time – don’t despair. Muscle strength will come with continuity and regular use. It is not recommended to use kegel balls for longer than 2-3 hrs per day – that’s enough!
What are Kegel balls?
Kegel balls are small weighted devices that can help strengthen a woman’s vaginal and pelvic floor muscles. Strong pelvic floor muscles help prevent urinary and fecal incontinence. A lot of ladies have incontinence after childbirth and experience urine leakage when coughing, sneezing, jumping etc. Physiotherapists will often recommend them to ladies for this reason, and also for back pain as kegel balls improve core strength. Many women begin doing kegel exercises without props, then move onto using a kegel ball set to increase resistance and make the exercises more challenging.
Other women use kegel balls for vaginal stimulation or to increase arousal.
There are four basic exercises you can do with a kegel ball set.
How to use the Kegel Ball Set
Isolate your pubococcygeus (PC) muscle. This is the muscle your kegel exercises will work. Move as if you were trying to stop your urine mid-stream. The muscle you contract is the PC muscle. This is the motion you’ll be making as you perform the exercises. It feels like squeezing or pulling the pelvic floor muscles up toward the lower back. Alternately, you can find this muscle by placing a finger in your vagina and squeezing down until you feel the PC muscle tighten.
Insert the kegel balls. Find a comfortable, relaxed position, such as sitting or standing, and gently push the balls into your vaginal opening. Stop just as they’re completely in, don’t press them to the back of the vagina or up near the cervix. Leave the cord hanging out. Close your legs to help keep them in place as you position yourself for your exercises. You may need a small amount of water based lubrication – not too much!
Remove the kegel balls by gently pulling downward on the retrieval cord. Wash with warm water and very mild soap, or preferable antibacterial toy cleaner. Rinse well, making sure to remove all soap residue as soap can irritate the delicate vaginal tissues.
Methods of exercise with the Kegel Ball Set
Perform the sitting exercise. Sit with your legs still closed. Isolate the PC muscle and use it to try to move the balls back and forth. If initially you can’t move the balls back and forth, focus on squeezing the balls and holding it for a few seconds, then relaxing for a few seconds. Medical experts recommend performing kegel exercises 10 times, three times per day.
Perform the standing exercise. The standing exercise uses the weight of the balls and the force of gravity to make you work your PC muscle. Stand and position your feet shoulder-width apart. Use your PC muscle to hold the balls in your vagina. If you stop contracting your PC muscle, the balls will fall out. Perform this exercise three times per day, working each time to hold the balls in place longer.
Perform the squatting exercise. The squatting exercise combines elements of both the sitting and standing exercises. Place your feet as wide apart as you can. Bend your knees slightly to move into an easy squat. Use your PC muscle to both hold the kegel balls in place and move them back and forth. Move into a deeper squat to make the exercise more challenging.
Use the kegel ball set during routine activities. This is similar to the standing exercise. Use your PC muscle to hold the balls in place while you do housework, go for a brief walk or take a shower. Make sure you’re strong enough to hold the balls in place so they don’t fall out at potentially embarrassing moments.
Consult your doctor if you’ve recently had any type of vaginal surgery.
