Is this right?

February 16 2005 at 1:23 AM

I have been using the KegelMaster for about three months and have definitely noticed some serious changes. My husband and I are very pleased. I am currently working with the 4th spring setting, but am wondering whether my rectum should be contracting when I do these exercises. I know I am doing something very right because of the major differences I have experienced. However, I always wonder whether rectal movement is a no-no. My butt cheeks aren't squeezing together, but my rectum does move upward and inward as I squeeze. Is this normal or am I using muscles I shouldn't be using?

I would never argue with success!

Dear Mary,

You are living proof that you don't have to do the exercises perfectly to achieve noticeable results - although I am not sure you really are "incorporating" your gluteous (butt) muscles - which would detract from the effectiveness of the exercise.

Fortunately the question here does not involve your abdominal muscles - you must NEVER use your lower abdominal muscles to "help" with the contractions.

The easiest way to "know" that you are doing the exercise correctly is to "check yourself" with the "second device". Please read the discussion forum posts concerning this "accessory".

I am glad that you wrote. Things are only going to get better!

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.
