Pelvic floor exercisers (Pericalm)

Posted , 7 users are following.

Any thoughts on these machines ladies? I was advised by my PT to use one,tried for a couple of weeks but got lower back pain. Stopped for a while then re started. Still don't feel any benefit.Went back to PT,she said to use for 6 weeks continously,if no improvement another 6 weeks,seems like a long time to me for no obvious results but loathe to go under the knife again as last op wasn't that successful

    I have the kegel 8 with probe. It provides electric stimulation by pulsing. Feels much stronger now. Cost a fortune be with it. You can I see it and start programme then sit and watch TV.

    I would also welcome answers to your posting.

    I have heard that the machine could cause PN pain if used too much.

    However if anyone has used something to help which is a simple machine would also appreciate info.

    I have Incontinence stimilater and used for years on and off never experienced pain. Everything feels tighter after I use it I need to upgrade but can't afford to at the moment. Maybe you have it on wrong setting. I would persevere with it, it takes patience you have to keep it up that's the thing we lead busy lives but you have to fit it in to your day. I find first thing in morning when you wake best time to do it x

    I did pelvic floor exercises religiously for 18 months after my prolapse op. Even checked by a gynae physio who confirmed I was doing them correctly. Then bought an Elvie which is supposed to help strengthen pf muscles by giving you feedback on your squeezing. Complete non-starter ~ couldn't even hold it in. I've now been using kegel 8 Ultra 20 for 8 weeks and really see a difference. You can feel the pull.
