I am looking at your products and unsure which of the two options are best for me. I have had two children naturally and have a weakened bladder. I am looking to tighten up and also strengthen my pelvic floor muscles.

Question. Can you please advise which of your two products would be more suitable?

Pelvic Floor Answers

Bladder Weakness and compromised pelvic floor muscles are a very common outcome of pregnancy. Smart Balls are the most popular and easy to use pelvic floor training system and can be easily integrated into the life of a busy woman.

We recommend going for the Smart Balls Power Pack which has the Smart Balls Uno for getting you started and the Smart Balls Duo for long term pelvic floor tone maintenance. a hypoallergenic lube is also essential to ease of use and is included in the Power Pack.

By following the simple training programme your bladder weakness issues can be a thing of the past after 12-16 weeks of use.
Smart Balls are made from medical grade materials and are long lasting so you can use them for years to come to maintain optimum pelvic floor tone over time.

This is especially important as women get older too as menopause and pregnancy are the two most challenging times for the pelvic floor muscles.

The sexual benefits of good pelvic floor tone

The sexual benefits of good pelvic floor tone in women and men.

Women tend to be more aware of their pelvic floor muscles, pregnancy, heavy lifting and menopause can cause in weakening of the pelvic floor resulting in bladder weakness also known as stress incontinence.

For women this can have a limiting effect on their activities, particular running, jumping on trampolines and gym exercises.
Many women are told this is normal, nothing can be done and it is a normal part of aging.

The pelvic floor muscles, like any other, become weaker when not actively used. Hormone changes during leading up to and during menopause weaken the pelvic floor muscles.
Simple exercises, made easier by using Pelvic floor training devices such as Smartballs can correct and prevent bladder weakness in women and allow women to resume or take up exercising without fear or embarrassment about wetting your pants.

If you sneeze and wet your pants, try Smart Balls. Best of all, with a small amount of training you can pop your Smart Balls in and forget about them for the day while they do all the work.

So where do the sex benefits come in? Toned and terrific pelvic floor muscles lead to stronger orgasms for women and if your partner is a man, he will usually notice the improved squeeze during sex after as little as two weeks of use.

Other tips and tricks for your pelvic floors; before lifting heavy items, squeeze your pelvic floor muscles and hold whilst lifting. This protects them and helps protect your back. A strong core includes strong pelvic floor muscles and is good for your back.

Who knew men have pelvic floor muscles too? They perform a similar function as for women and strong pelvic floor muscles reduce the likelihood of incontinence in older age.

Strong pelvic floor muscles for men mean stronger erections and often quicker recovery times for men of all ages.

For men there is not currently an equivalent muscle training device such as Smart Balls, however squeezing and lifting the pelvic floor muscles- a technique used in yoga will strengthen the muscles.

The easiest way for men to do this is to squeeze your anus- bum hole- whatever you call it and then pull that muscle up towards your belly button.

All us will grow old, and none of us want to be incontinent...start now on improving your pelvic floor tone and enjoy the sex benefits too.

Question.

Looking to improve vaginal tone. Not really much of a problem with bladder weakness. Post menopause (just recently).

Pelvic Floor Answers

Either SmartBalls or Natratone will be effective in improving vaginal tone. Natratone could be a bit more comfortable if you have vaginal dryness, however using lubricant with SmartBalls helps with this as well.
If you are happy to dedicate a small amount of time to actively doing exercises then I would recommend Natratone, if you would find this difficult then go for SmartBalls. Either product are long lasting and can be reused again and again over time.

Either device is effective at strengthening the pelvic floor muscles leading to improved sexual sensation as well as preventing and correcting bladder weakness. A bonus for making the effort!

Ask a Question. How do you know if Smart Balls really help?

Do Smart Balls really make a difference?

Question

How do u know if SmartBalls really help? Because it always pop out down there after 30 minutes. I have only used it for few days so far, its easy to forget all about it till it  pops out. I also have a prolapse.

Pelvic Floor Answers;

Smart Balls definitely do help improve pelvic floor strength, we have been using them and selling them for many years. It is likely that your muscles are pushing the ball out when they get tired, so definitely keep using them. 
Aim to add about 5 -10 minutes to the amount of time you wear them, every day. Your goal is to be able to wear them for 5-10 hours each day but it can take 3-4 weeks on average to be able to do that. Then you want to wear them daily for 6-12 weeks.

The prolapse may be putting extra pressure on as well. It is quite normal not to feel the balls while you are wearing them as we do not have a lot of nerve endings above the pelvic floor muscles.

We recommend if you have a prolapse to use the balls for a longer period initially so 12 weeks may be more appropriate.
You are likely to notice improvements after a couple of weeks but don't stop there. Better bladder control and increased sexual sensation are good signs. Keep going to get long term improvements. Good luck getting your pelvic floors back into shape!
