Are Kegel Balls an effective way of doing Kegel exercises?
Kegel exercises are medically proven to help women with a number of pelvic floor problems like urinary incontinence, smoother recovery after pregnancy and lack of libido etc. But the effectiveness of a kegel exercise depends on doing it correctly. Though you can do kegel exercise for free with the help of traditional methods, I would suggest going for proper kegel equipment to get quick results. If you are confused about choosing the right kegel balls for yourself, here's a checklist to help you through the process:
· Consider the size and weight of the ball; you can add additional weight later for extra challenge. (Beginners should start with single kegel ball design).
· Check the quality of material and see if it is free of phthalates
· Hygiene id another important factor, therefore see if you can easily clean your kegel exerciser. Kegel balls with smooth nonporous surfaces allow ease of cleaning and hence are more hygienic.
