Thanks for writing. Wouldn't it make more sense to exercise the muscle that supports the bladder, uterus and rectum, than to continue to let your body become ravaged by a never ending series of surgeries?
It is sad but true that most women are not informed of the frequency of dropping pelvic organs, and the failure rate of these surgeries.
Pam, I'm not just making this up. Surgery is the most profitable aspect of medicine and I am disgusted that more emphasis is not put on prevention.
God did not "misdesign" us when She/He created us. When we experience vaginal childbirth the PC muscle becomes stetched/damaged, but if it is PROPERLY exercised it will support your pelvic organs, stop incontinence and provide you with a much more rewarding sex life.
You don't have as much a "medical" problem as you do a "physical fitness" problem which can easily be treated in the comfort and privacy of home.
It doesn't matter if you had your children 50 years ago, if a muscle was stretched/damaged then, due to our relatively sedentary lifestyles (especially as relates to the PC muscle) your PC muscle will thrive with the Kegelmaster.
I hope you will learn as much as possible about the Kegelmaster and the "Second Device" which this company provides FREE with the Kegelmaster so that you'll be assured of exercising the correct muscle, AND STOP THIS HORRIBLE CYCLE OF SURGERIES that you and hundreds of thousands of women undergo every year - besides the other benefits of proper PC muscle exercise.
Pam, I am so sorry for the needless pain, suffering, and expense you have gone through. You have my best wishes!
