A yoni egg is a small, egg-shaped stone that is inserted into the vagina as part of a spiritual and physical practice known as yoni yoga or jade egg practice. While the practice has been around for centuries, it has recently gained popularity as a way to strengthen pelvic floor muscles, increase sexual pleasure, and promote overall feminine health.
Why choose a yoni egg?
Strengthening pelvic floor muscles
Regular use of a yoni egg can help to strengthen pelvic floor muscles, which can reduce the risk of urinary incontinence and improve sexual function.
Increasing sexual pleasure
Using a yoni egg can help to increase awareness of the pelvic area and improve blood flow to the genitals, leading to increased sexual pleasure.
Promoting feminine health
The use of a yoni egg can help to promote overall feminine health by improving circulation to the pelvic area, increasing vaginal lubrication, and reducing vaginal dryness.
Yoni yoga can be a powerful tool for connecting with the body and exploring one’s own sensuality in a safe and empowering way.
It is important to note that the use of a yoni egg should be approached with caution and only after consulting with a healthcare provider. Additionally, it is recommended to use only high-quality, non-porous stones and to practice good hygiene to reduce the risk of infection.
What are kegels & how do they help?
Kegels are a type of exercise that involves contracting and relaxing the pelvic floor muscles. The pelvic floor muscles are a group of muscles that support the bladder, uterus, and rectum. They play an important role in urinary and bowel control, as well as sexual function.
Kegels are often recommended as a way to strengthen the pelvic floor muscles, which can help to prevent or reduce symptoms of urinary incontinence, fecal incontinence, and pelvic organ prolapse. They can also improve sexual function by increasing blood flow to the genitals and enhancing muscle tone in the vaginal area.
To perform kegels, follow these steps:
Identify the pelvic floor muscles
To do this, imagine that you are trying to stop the flow of urine mid-stream. The muscles you use to do this are your pelvic floor muscles.
Contract the pelvic floor muscles
Squeeze the pelvic floor muscles and hold for 5-10 seconds.
Relax the pelvic floor muscles
Release the squeeze and rest for a few seconds before repeating.
Aim to do 10-15 repetitions, 3-4 times per day.
It is important to note that Kegels should not be performed while urinating as it can lead to incomplete emptying of the bladder and increase the risk of urinary tract infections.
