Vaginal weights have been clinically proven to reduce and in some cases eliminate stress incontinence in women. VagaCare™ has been specially designed to help women who accidentally leak urine when sneezing, laughing, coughing and exercising. This is medically known as stress incontinence. Other terms are weak pelvic floor muscles and poor bladder control.
If you are not suffering from any form of stress incontinence, the VagaCare™ set is a great preventive program that can prepare you for childbirth and work as a fitness program for later years. Remember the efforts you put forth today will be rewarded later reducing your chance of experiencing stress incontinence.
The easiest way to do it is with VagaCare™ vaginal weights.
Drugs cannot cure stress incontinence. Surgery is not a cure for this kind of problem. Strengthening your muscles is the only real solution.
You may have heard of Kegel exercises. VagaCare™ vaginal weights help you perform Kegel exercises correctly.
The instructions are simple and easy to follow.
It is a basic four step program that makes use of gravity to strengthen your muscles.
The VagaCare™ brand is easier to use than other products on the market. They are specially designed to fit in exactly the right part of your vagina. Other products are too large and long, making it difficult to place them correctly. The cone that holds the weight is composed of hypoallergenic material. It is easier to insert than a tampon.
The interchangeable weights allow you to strengthen the muscles as time goes by. When it becomes easy to hold one weight in place, you step up to a heavier weight.
The exercise can be done while you are jogging or working around the house. So, it doesn't have to take time away from your busy schedule. If your muscles are very weak, you perform the exercise lying down. In a short period of time, you should be able to hold the weight in place while standing up. Most women notice a difference within a few weeks. Any woman can benefit from their use. It should be a part of every woman’s regular exercise program. Strengthening your sphincter and pelvic muscles can make childbirth easier and improve your sex life.
Remove the complete set of weights and cone (open cone and clean inside) from your personal carrying case and thoroughly wash with an antibacterial soap (no perfumes) in warm water. (do not use hot water) Thoroughly rinse to remove all soap residues. Now dry your complete set with a clean soft cloth. Be sure to do this prior to each use and clean your carrying case each time. Before starting STEP 2 use the restroom and thoroughly wash your hands.
Close the cone with no weights inside. Hold the cone where the string is located and gently push the cone into your vagina with only the string remaining outside. It may be easier to insert the cone if you prop one of your legs up. After the cone is placed into your vagina you should be able to touch the bottom of the cone with your finger. The cone should be positioned lower than a tampon after inserting. (see images above) Now keep your finger on the bottom of the cone and do a few pelvic exercises. If you are using the correct muscles the cone should move away from your finger and if the cone pushes onto your finger you are contracting the wrong muscles. It may take you a few days or week before locating the correct muscles, but practicing this will make the exercises more effective. Do not push the cone to far into the vagina; this will make your exercises less effective. This is the first part of your exercise program so take your time in locating the correct muscles.
Insert the cone without adding any weight. Stand up and use your pelvic muscles and try to hold the cone in your vagina. If you can retain the cone without difficulties remove the cone and insert the center weight into the cone and close the cone. If you can't retain the cone without any weights, lay down with your knees up and pull on the string while doing your pelvic exercises trying to hold the cone from being removed. Try tightening your muscles ten to fifteen times, then standing back up and seeing if you can now retain the cone in place. Do this for one week before adding any weight. If it takes too much effort to retain the cone without any weight this is your starting point for using the VagaCare™ vaginal weight set.
Now you've located the correct muscles and determine your weight starting point. Let's get started doing our exercises. While having the cone inserted into the vagina with or with out a weight, start doing your exercises trying to lift the cone and allowing it to slip down. Once you have pulled the cone up by your tightening of the pelvic muscles hold for five to ten seconds and relax five to ten seconds. Allow the cone to reposition itself before tightening the muscles again. Do this for fifteen to twenty minutes twice a day four times a week. If at anytime you feel the cone moving upward very easily while holding it still it might be time to add an additional weight. As you control the motion of the cone being pulled up this will help determine when you should add weight. Now move around while doing your exercises so you can learn to have more control. When you feel comfortable with the progress of your exercises add additional weight to make it more difficult to hold the weight up. The more you exercise the faster the results. Everybody's body is different so don't get discouraged if it takes you longer to see results. The best way to receive the fastest results is to exercise everyday for six to twelve weeks twice a day. If you have any discomfort form exercising you might be pushing yourself to hard. Slow down and do your exercises not as often. Once you have started the VagaCare™ exercise program and see the results you were looking for, it would be a good idea to continue exercising at least once or twice a week. Remember it is not necessary to use all of the weights to receive results. Find your personal comfort.
If you are able to hold the cone in with the maximum amount of weight while moving around you can start the advance program. Start doing your exercises while climbing stairs, standing in place and jogging or coughing ten to fifteen times. Walk around the house and do your everyday chores. If this seems to be difficult you may need to lower the weight amount until you can build the muscle up even more. You'll soon progress to your optimum weight as your muscles grow even stronger. These exercises put more pressure on the pelvic muscles making them work harder to support the bladder.
