How to Use Kegel Balls

By Ekaterina Mironova

Kegel exercises are always recommended for women to increase the pelvic floor muscle strength. As a young person, exercising the pelvic floor muscles may seem like a waste of time but strong pelvic floor muscles have a myriad of benefits later on in life. Some of the benefits include; increased bladder control, reduced risk of prolapsed uterus, increased vaginal tightness during intercourse and decreased urinary urgency.

While you can train the pelvic floor muscles without any added weights, the weights make the effects noticeable within a shorter period of time. Kegel balls are created to help you strengthen the muscles and for beginners the balls may seem like such an odd way to strengthen the muscles. However, the process is even enjoyable, and sometimes even orgasmic. Here are some points worth noting when it comes to choosing the best kegel balls for you;

Choosing the Kegel Balls

Single Balls or Double Balls

Kegel balls come in two options, the single ball or the double ball option. The single ball is easier to insert, making it very ideal for first timers. Even though the double ball can be used by beginners, the sensations sometimes are too foreign and therefore harder to get used to. If you can handle the double ball option, go for it by any means possible. However, if you are planning to start out slow, the single ball option is definitely the right choice for you.

Kegel Balls Size

Kegel balls do not have much variation in sizes, but there are some basics that allow you to choose the ones that are the right fit for you. When you are starting out, larger balls are recommended as they are easier to use. Once you feel that the regular ones are getting easier to use, get a smaller size. It is always a common rule that the larger balls should be used by women who have children while the smaller sizes are for those who haven’t had kids yet. Always ensure that the weight is just right for you.

Kegel Balls Material

The material composition of kegel balls vary. There are glass kegel balls. They are effective but easily slip out, so always ensure that you have something to hold it as it falls or use it in a position that will discourage it from slipping out. Silicone and rubber kegels balls are the other common options. These kegel balls are easier to use and great for beginners. However, always ensure that you choose a material that is body safe. The material composition of the string is also important. This ensures that you can pull out the kegel balls anytime without the string snapping off.

Using Kegel Balls

Kegel balls are worn like tampons, and this is something that is familiar to many women. However, the sensations are marginally different and a bit harder to get used to. To start off, always ensure that you have the right lubrication for your skin as well as the kegel balls. Water based lubricant is compatible with most toy materials. Always check if the lubricant is glycerin free to ensure that you will not experience any adverse reactions to the lube.

Once you have the right lubricant on hand, ensure that your toy is clean and sanitized if need be. Apply a generous amount of lube on every inch of the kegel balls. Insert the balls slowly until you feel them fully inserted. Once this is done, take a moment to ensure that they are not slipping out by taking a few steps.

You can let them rest without doing anything and the muscles will get stronger as they train to keep the balls in position. With the kegel balls inserted, the pelvic floor muscles remain contracted throughout the entire period of time and this gets them stronger. However, you can also choose to actively contract and release the muscles when the kegel balls are inserted.

There are various positions you can choose to stay in when the kegel balls are inserted. However, the kegel balls do not interrupt any activities and you can choose to carry on with your daily chores and activities while they are inside. Always ensure that you have panties on that will catch onto the balls if they slip out to avoid any embarrassing situations.
