I am quite excited to tell you that even my doctor noticed an improvement in muscle strength in just over 8 weeks. I thought I had no option to surgery so about three months ago I had my first appointment with a urogynecologist.
Fortunately, he is a modern young man and was willing to work with me on alternatives to surgery for stress incontinence.
So I did my research and found your website and this discussion group.The doctor wanted to prescribe a topical estrogen cream while I was waiting for the follow up appointment, but I asked him to let me try only the kegelmaster for the next two months.
He had heard of it and was optimistic about results.
I ordered the kegelmaster online and it arrived, as promised, within the week. And I am living overseas, so I was even more pleased with the speed of delivery, and the ease of Customs clearance.
I got started the day it arrived and have been using it once a day or twice when I can. It is so easy to make it part of the daily routine and my husband is an interested bystander, which helps to encourage me.
I have noticed a significant improvement with incontinence so far, AND both my husband and I noticed a definite tightening of the vaginal muscles, which is a delightful bonus!!!
And yesterday, at my follow up, the doctor, as I mentioned at the beginning of this post, has seen a measurable improvement.
I am determined to continue with the daily exercises and can't wait to hear what the doc has to say next month!
I know I can do this! How empowering to learn that we can take charge of our bodies and make a difference.
