Thanks for writing. Doing "Kegel exercises" incorrectly i.e. using some lower abdominals muscles to help do the contractions, could aggrevate ANY cystocele.
Otherwise the Kegelmaster adds no risk. If the cystocele (prolapse -or- "slippage" of the bladder) was really advanced and so much ligament damage had occured that the bladder was in danger of herniating and falling through the vaginal wall, nothing other than surgery is going to provide relief.
LATE 2002 UPDATE Without simply taking our word for it, excellent evidence that Kegelmaster is an effective medical device is our FDA certification as well as the medical device license granted to us by Health Canada.
The Kegelmaster is a state-of-the-art way to do Kegel exercises in a way Dr. Kegel originally intended. We have overwhelming statistical evidence of success with the Kegelmaster. That is why many insurance companies are providing reimbursement for the Kegelmaster with a doctor's recommendation!
This is truly a breakthrough product because it is so effective for almost any woman in totally rehabilitating the PC muscle.
The benefits of exercising the PC in terms of reversing conditions such as cystocele, urinary incontinence, pelvic pain, sexual dysfunction, etc. ARE NOT TO BE DENIED.

Did you notice that we're members of the Better Business Bureau and the BBB Online? They don't endorse products but I assure you they had to be convinced that this was a real valuable product (we proved it's effectiveness to 2 members of their Board!) before we were welcomed as members.
I know that the Kegelmaster has an excellent chance to change your life, in that surgery is an unsatsifactory solution with future implications, and the Kegelmaster is a win-win situation!
Thanks again for your interest in our ground-breaking product.
