WHAT ARE KEGEL BALLS FOR?

Kegel exercise sends blood flow to the pelvis, helps improve bladder control, and prevents vaginal prolapse. Weighted Kegel balls have proven to be very effective for this purpose. They help strengthen the pelvic floor muscles, which are linked to sexual fulfilment.

Kegel balls, also known as Ben Wa balls, are small weighted balls used to contract and release muscles easily. However, these balls do more than whip your muscle into place; they are also known to enhance sexual pleasures. Thanks to "50 Shades" and "Broad City", Kegel balls have become quite popular for intimate uses. Currently, these balls are often referred to as orgasm balls, love balls, pleasure balls, and even Venus balls.

The Kegel balls come in different weights and sizes and can be explored in several intimate ways. If you have one and aren't sure how to use it or you're just curious about how these balls work, then let's give you the lowdown.

HOW DO KEGEL BALLS WORK?

The Kegel ball, which is now available in a variety of brands and designs, is one equipment that have emerged as the importance of sexual wellness has grown. These balls are usually two (although sometimes it can be a single ball) connected with a cord and inserted into the vagina. Each Kegel ball has a smaller loose ball that generates vibration by moving.

Inserting the Kegel ball into the vagina causes the vagina muscles to contract, trying to keep the balls in. Not to worry, Kegel balls come out easily as most have strings and can be used over an extended period.

THE BENEFITS OF KEGEL BALLS

Most women recognise Kegel balls as a way to boost their sexual health. However, there are additional benefits attached to the use of Kegel balls. Yes, having stronger pelvic floor muscles may lead to more pleasurable sex, but according to doctors, there are several other benefits of using these balls. Below are a few:

  1. Kegel balls can help with pregnancy recovery. During pregnancy, babies put pressure on the pelvic floor, and this weakens these muscles. A Kegel ball can help strengthen it up.
  2. The use of Kegel balls improves bladder control. According to doctors, Kegel balls can help with stress urinary incontinence, which is the inability to hold urine with abdominal pressure.
  3. The movement of Kegel balls within the vagina walls stimulates the walls and improves the vagina lubrication levels. Additionally, by strengthening the pelvic muscles, Orgasm is experienced more intensely.

HOW TO US KEGEL BALLS

To get the Kegel balls ready for use, you should follow these steps:

  • First, wash your hands thoroughly with an antibacterial soap.
  • Next, wash your Kegel balls in warm water with antibacterial soap and dry them off with a clean towel.
  • When about to insert the balls, rub a generous amount of water-based lube on them.
  • Additionally, apply a liberal amount of lube to your vaginal opening before getting into position to insert the balls.
  • Now, lie down in a comfortable position and relax your body.
  • Slowly insert the first Kegel ball into your vagina
  • Once this is done, gently insert the second ball in as well.
  • Push the balls as far as you are comfortable with. Remember, these aren't tampons, so they shouldn't be pushed too far.

If the balls have a removal string or loop, this should hang outside the vagina, so ensure that you don't accidentally tuck everything in. Additionally, the balls should feel secure in your vaginal canal.

WHAT DO YOU DO WHEN THE BALLS ARE IN?

This largely depends on your reason for using the ball. If you intend to strengthen your pelvic floor, you should focus on pelvic floor exercises that will help tone your muscles like the traditional Kegel exercises.

However, if your intention is a solo sexual pleasure, leaving them in your vagina will intensify the sensation of whatever you are doing. They can also be used for vaginal sex foreplay between partners as they increase the vaginal sensitivity making it more aroused.

HOW TO REMOVE THEM

Kegel balls should be kept for up to six hours in the vagina. These hours can be less depending on the ball used and your body. So how do you remove them when done?

  • First, lay down on your back.
  • Next, add more lube to the vaginal opening and slowly pull the removal string until the balls slide out.

ARE THERE ANY RISKS TO USING KEGEL BALLS?

Although these balls are generally considered safe to use, they shouldn't be used by ladies with the following conditions without the approval of a doctor:

  • Pregnant or recovering from childbirth
  • Pelvic pains or active pelvic infection
  • Recovering from gynecological surgery
  • Have an intrauterine device
  • Ladies who use a menstrual cup

Using Kegel balls with these conditions can result in pain and discomfort, so you should speak to your doctor before attempting to use one.

If you are fit to use Kegel balls, you should keep the following in mind:

  1. When used as a Kegel ball exerciser, squeezing the balls for long without a break can overexert your pelvic floor muscle, cause pelvic floor muscle tension, and lead to a temporary strain.
  2. You shouldn't keep in Kegel balls for more than six hours in other not to overexert your vaginal muscles. Additionally, endeavor to clean the Kegel balls before and after every use.

You should discontinue the use of these balls if you experience:

  • Severe pelvic pain or discomfort
  • Unusual discharge
  • Unusual odour
