Splashing around in a pool.
Jumping on a trampoline.
Doing the dishes.
Lifting up a heavy suitcase.
Downward facing dogs.
What do all these things have in common?
The ability to bring on a bladder leakage, that’s what.
Well, they do in me.
And I refuse to just “pad” the problem.
Early in the year I shared with you news about the Australian-developed medical device that is firming up pelvic floors the world over.
The PeriCoach was relatively new at that time but has now been embraced by women all around Australia.
And embrace we have.
You can catch up on the nitty gritty of how it all works here but if you’re wondering, yes, it is a device that you insert into your vagina.
It’s not “that” kind of device, but according to some unnamed sources, frequent use of the PeriCoach (and the consequent strengthening of the muscles down there) may lead to better enjoyment, shall we say, of matters in the bedroom.
Now if you’ve just pushed out a baby through those aforementioned muscles, you’re not really looking for any kind of bedroom action that doesn’t involve sleep. I hear you.
BUT. Listen up.
Whether you’ve recently given birth, your “kids” have left home or you’ve never had kids, you are not immune from weakened pelvic floor muscles and bladder leakage.
We might joke about it but really it’s no laughing matter. See point above as to what laughter can do to a woman with a weak pelvic floor.
The thing is we all KNOW we should do our pelvic floor exercises but how many of us actually do them?
Every day. And in the correct way.
It’s no use giving the general area down there a good squeeze. For all you know your glutes might be doing all the work.
This is why the PeriCoach is the only way to train.
When it connects with the app on your phone or tablet it’s like having a virtual trainer in the bedroom (or bathroom) to make sure you a) do the exercises; and b) you do them correctly.
The sensors on the PeriCoach unit are calibrated to your “bits”. This is the starting point. You re-calibrate as the muscles get stronger but you actually get to see that.
Way to go vagina!
I’m a big fan of these kinds of fitness apps for personal motivation. I’ve got one for my regular walks and I compete against myself for faster times.
With PeriCoach, I’m cheering on my vajayjay every day. And with each daily two-minute exercise, things are getting much stronger down there.
I also know I’m in good hands with this device as the PeriCoach has been developed by healthcare professionals, including women’s health physiotherapists.
The PeriCoach is not a gimmick. It’s simply the best way for women to strengthen their pelvic floor.
A big tick from me is also the ability for you to share your “workouts” with your healthcare professional.
If your pelvic floor is severely weakened and most definitely beyond any laughing matter, then you can work together for a long-term solution.
Within 10km of my home there are more than 20 health care professionals registered and working with PeriCoach. You can find someone near you here.
If, like me, you’ve just been a bit lazy and hit and miss with the whole pelvic floor exercise routine over the years and don’t necessarily need to work in conjunction with a physio, then you can buy the system online here.
WARNING. There’s one thing the PeriCoach won’t do.
Sure, the app will send you reminders to work out your pelvic floor. BUT. You still have to do the work.
It’s two minutes a day, my pelvic-floor-challenged sisters.
JUST DO IT.
Ok, confession time. Who’s doing their pelvic floor exercises while they’re reading this? Do you use a PeriCoach? What improvement have you seen?
