If all you have is a mild to moderate prolapse - (stage one or stage two) cystocele (bladder prolapse - dropped bladder), uterine prolapse (dropped uterus) or rectocele - you need to start exercising your PC muscle, now! You must come to think of this as a wonderful no-brainer!
EFFECTIVE "KEGELS" ARE PROVEN TO STOP YOUR CONDITION FROM DETERIORATING AND MAY REVERSE IT.
When you really understand how it works you will see that there is no device that assures the maximum results from "kegels" like the Kegelmaster.
The chances are excellent that you will totally cure yourself, be able to resume a "high impact" lifestyle and never have to experience a rather unpleasant surgery - that often fails and has to be repeated.
If you have a stage three prolapse (organ protrudes out of the vagina), unfortunately the Kegelmaster will not prevent the surgery that you probably SHOULD have so that you can get on with your life. I would strongly suggest that you ask your doctor about your estrogen level and NOT have the surgery until that level is normal. It seems that some surgeons are NOT aware how important this is!
Approximately 6 weeks after the surgery you should start using the Kegelmaster! If you do, in theory, the surgery will NEVER have to be repeated.
The urgency is for those with a second stage prolapse. Surgery is not inevitable! It may be helpful to know that when used according to the easy instructions, the Kegelmaster completely rehabilitates the PC muscle - that is the muscle responsible for supporting the bladder, the urethra (the canal through which urine flows out of the body), the uterus, and the rectum.
What the Kegelmaster WON'T do (PAST A CERTAIN POINT) is repair torn "ligament" - the "connecting tissue" by which the vaginal wall is attached to the body.
As a prolapse becomes a more serious "stage 2" the "ligament damage" component (permanent damage) overcomes the "muscle damage".
If you really wait too long the bladder can actually herniate into or through the vaginal wall and surgery is going to be the best answer.
*Once again your estrogen level could be a factor. Low estrogen levels correlate with thin vaginal walls and less capacity for the PC muscle to grow and maintain mass.
It should be noted that this company is concerned about artificial, pharmaceutical hormone replacement therapy.
You can naturally make dietary changes and safely consume phytoestrogens (plant estrogens) in their natural matrix by eating more flax seed or flax seed oil (it has been written in several places that flax is particularly useful in keeping one's progesterone level balanced with that of their estrogen which LOWERS cancer risks), soy products (soy milk, tofu, miso etc) and an herbal supplement containing "red clover" or "black cohosh".
There are certain people who because of a family history of certain types of cancer want to REDUCE ESTROGEN.
You should not try to change your estrogen level without a trained doctor's assistance if you have a family history of hormone dependent cancer.
It is worth repeating and emphasizing: If you have a stage 1 or a stage 2 prolapse you could be "one traumatic event away" from requiring surgery, rather than being able to address the problem with an easy exercise!
SOMEWHERE THERE IS A"POINT-OF-NO-RETURN".
You should seriously begin exercising and strengthening your PC muscle now!
A bad coughing spell, straining if constipated, high-impact exercise, lifting a heavy object or moving a heavy object "incorrectly", being on your feet for long periods, etc. can all be precipitating events.
If there is any doubt about the suitability of the Kegelmaster for you, PLEASE ask your doctor!
Ask him/her if "in theory" could properly done "kegel exercise" possibly be beneficial for your condition.
If you get any kind of positive response, my suggestion would be to "run, don't walk!" to the Kegelmaster.
Please don't hesitate to call our company 1-888-Kegelmaster (888-534-3562) or online at www.Kegelmaster.pro if you have any questions.
Over 500,000 surgeries a year are performed in the United States alone for bladder prolapse (cystocele), rectocele, and uterine prolapse. (Source Christine Kent).
Theoretically, if every woman used the Kegelmaster, in time this number would reduce to near zero!
The needless expense for adult "pads" and diapers is even greater, not to mention the skin infections and odor. Properly exercising the PC muscle with the Kegelmaster has a greater than 93% chance of eliminating all leaks and accidents.
The Kegelmaster is a small form-fitting device which is gently inserted in the vagina approximately 3 inches. A knob which remains outside the body allows you to control how far the unit "opens". You perform simple, rewarding "contractions" against one of fifteen pre-set levels of adjustable resistance. You start at an appropriate, comfortable level and you are able to gauge your progress as well. This is the state-of-the-art way to grow muscle tissue and hopefully reverse a prolapse condition.
Question from Elaine:
I;m writing 4 weeks before surgery to repair a rectocele.
Can this product prevent the surgery?
I am so glad that you wrote.
There is more I would need to know to predict if you can prevent surgery at this point... For instance, your age, your "childbirth" history, the seriousness of the rectocele, your estrogen level, more about your lifestyle etc. etc. etc.
If you can avoid the surgery you really want to do so. Sometimes "ignorance can be bliss", but this surgery can only be described as "yucky".
There are lots of variables, but the principle is the same: God did not make a mistake when we were created. Because all of us lead a relatively sedentary lifestyle our PC muscle is not preconditioned the way nature intended - to undergo the rigors of childbirth. Without proper rehabilitation the result is predictable: cystocele (bladder prolapse) uterine prolapse, recotecle, incontinence, sexual dysfunction, pelvic pain, etc.
Our product is tested and proven and FDA cleared. The efficacy of the Kegelmaster is not to be denied! It can change the health outlook for women all over the world.
Maybe, just maybe it can prevent a surgery that is scheduled 4 weeks from now.
I have a friend whose mother was 3 weeks away from scheduled surgery for stress incontinence and pelvic pain due to a tipped/retroverted uterus at which point, we supplied her with a Kegelmaster!
Within 3 weeks by using the Kegelmaster, she reversed her problem, and she was able to permanently cancel the surgery.
This was a major factor in my becoming involved with the Kegelmaster in the first place.
Rectocele can be a different situation entirely. Same with cystocele and uterine prolapse. It is a matter of timing - to what stage has it progressed. How much is muscle damage versus torn ligament. If your condition has not progressed to what is called a stage 3 AND and you were successfully able avoid more "trauma" for a while (severe straining due to constipation, being on feet for long periods, straining to lift/carry heavy objects, severe coughing,etc), yes, there is a decent chance that the Kegelmaster may help you avoid surgery.
Please understand we are not making an unsubstantiated medical claim. A mild to moderate prolapse can usually be reversed without surgery - a severe one cannot.
Let's say it's a worst case scenario and you DO have to have the surgery. Bulking up and strengthening the PC muscle as much as possible BEFORE the surgery will make the surgery easier.
After surgery (waiting at least 6 weeks), the smartest thing in the WORLD you can do is to use the Kegelmaster. This (along with a good estrogen level) and avoiding trauma especially at first, will give you the best chance of your never having repeat surgery - unfortunately an all too common occurence.
Another thing, if you do have to have the surgery you should make sure your estrogen level is normal before the surgery. Please ask your surgeon about this. This would be a valid reason for delaying the surgery. It concerns me that some surgeons don't always address this issue.
Probably the first thing you should do is ask your doctor, based on the amount of ligament damage or herniation associated with your particular rectocele if you were to do "effective" kegel exercises, is it possible for you to avoid surgery "in theory" ?
If you get any kind of positive response - cancel the surgery and try the Kegelmaster!
I wish you the best and appreciate your writing the forum.
With warm regards,
