Response to Hope you can help

Hi Jocelyn,

I wanted to get back to you regarding your concerns about your cystocele. I know how important it can be to "share" with someone else who is going through the same thing as you! In answer to your questions regarding what it looks like. Yes, upon examination standing and squatting and even upon lifting my legs in the shower to shave I can see a bulge. However, this appears to be more prevalant right before and during my cycle when my estrogen levels are lower than normal. Presently, I am 48 and in what they call peri-menopause. I am using natural hormones, including estrogen and even use Estriol (the safest estrogen) cream in the vagina for dryness. This may have helped the situation from getting to the point of no return...meaning a need for surgery. Prior to using the Kegelmaster, during the lows in my estrogen cycle, the bulge had started to protrude outside of my vagina....which was very scary for me! The very first time I noticed this was about 2 1/2 months ago right before my cycle. So this is all really new to me. Thankfully, I have noticed that since I started using my KM faithfully every day for about 1 1/2 months now, my cystocele is definitely better. NOT where I'd like it to be, but this will take some time. Let's face it, the cystocele didn't get to a Stage 2 overnight!!! I hope and pray that some day soon I'll be able to write this forum and say....guess what? Upon examination, I no longer can see a bulge and my cystocele is gone for good!!! I feel with a positive mental attitude, good nutrition, faithful kegeling with my Kegelmaster, this really WILL happen for me. I would have to agree with Sari in that surgery is a big money-making deal for the doctors, the hospitals, the labs, etc., etc. Hopefully, for some women who log onto this site, an ounce of prevention will be worth a pound of cure, & they'll never have a doctor suggesting surgery for them as an answer. All the best to you and I hope by now you have started on your journey to health and wellness!!! Take good care, April (Heather)

There simply is no treatment or device as effective as the Kegelmaster. Along with the "Second Device" which we provide FREE, it is virtually failureproof.
