If you will recall from my previous email, the ob-gyn I had been seeing informed me in November (2007) that my uterus had prolapsed to late second stage.....and that "kegel exercises WOULD NOT HELP". (Even your phone-line people said it may not reverse a late second stage prolapse.)
He recommended a "wait and see" stance -- until I had no alternative but hysterectomy. (Because of my age, he said he would not recommend uterine suspension mesh -- after all, "Do you want more children?") No, but I want my uterus!
I have been using your device for five weeks. While I am still unable to "close" it all the way on the fourth pin.....I am really working! I had an appt. with my "new" doctor for a prolapse check this past Friday and her thoughts on what else I could do or should do to help reverse it.
After examining me (and reading the notes from my previous ob-gyne), she told me she is not recommending I do anything other than what I'm doing. She said, "Your uterine prolapse now is a very early (mild) second stage; whatever you're doing, keep it up! It's working." I was overjoyed! (I broke into tears of HAPPINESS!)
My regime of kegels is NOT hit or miss. I do them religiously every morning -- and when I'm at work, I do them w/out the KegelMaster -- sitting, standing, etc.....maybe 3 sets of 30 another 5 or 6 times a day.
Just wanted to let you know that the exercises (with the device), determination and a positive mental attitude CAN help to reverse even a late second stage uterine prolapse. Again, this whole process of reversal may take 6 months to a year before my uterus (as well as bladder and rectum) are "almost" back to pre-pregnancy and birth days.
I am overjoyed with the results I am getting from the KegelMaster!
So tell other women experiencing a late second stage prolapse, that the KegelMaster CAN work (it's working for me!!!! yippee!) -- don't lose hope because of inability to close the device all the way -- as long as you work those muscles and manage to close the device partially -- IT'S WORKING -- Don't listen to the "nay" sayers -- Thank you, (crying from joy here!) thank you! Thank you! for your product AND YOUR personal encouragement.

P.S. Please put my email in the forum if you think it will give hope to other women.

"Sari, just ANOTHER follow up for you and the forum.
After using the Kegelmaster for almost six months, I have reversed the late-second-stage uterine prolapse! April, 2008, I was informed by my doctor that my uterus is "back in place".....my muscles are strong. She can't believe how quickly I have "healed" myself. I will continue using the device for many years.
With tears of gratitude for your product, again --THANK YOU!
