Some years ago I had a set of kegel balls, but I must have thrown them away, because with the recent renovation of our room I couldn’t find them anywhere. All I had was the empty box. When Lurepink contacted me and asked if I would be interested in reviewing their kegel balls, of course I said yes, especially when I saw images of the beautiful balls.
Packaging & Contents
The five kegel balls and two holders come in a black rectangular box with the name Lurepink printed on it. The two holders are separately packed in a plastic bag and the balls in another. There’s a white pouch bag in the box as well as a small instruction leaflet.
Shape ‘n Size & Material
Obviously, the balls are round and they vary in color the same way they vary in weight. The lightest ball is white and the heaviest is purple. The other three are different shades of pink. The weights are printed on the balls and those are: 35, 40, 60, 70 and 80 grams. The balls are 3.5 centimeter in diameter have a medical grade silicone exterior and the balls itself are made of stainless steel. There are two holders in the package, with the word ‘Lurepink’ printed on them. One can hold only one ball and the other can hold two. This makes it possible to have 15 different weight combinations. The holders are also made of medical grade silicone.
How does it work?
To wear the balls with one of the holders, you have to stretch the silicone and push the ball inside. I had a bit of a struggle when I tried this for the first time, but once I found a way, it got easier. You just have to try what the best way is for you. I do, however, think that with lot of use the holders might tear.
Using the kegel balls for only 15 minutes a day will train your pelvic floor muscles, helping with bladder control, unwanted leaks and prevent prolapse. If you are still a beginner at training your pelvic floor muscles, you can start with the lightest ball and gradually build it up as your muscles get stronger.
My experience with & opinion of the product
Like I said above, I had to figure out how to get a ball in the holder, but once that was done, I was ready to insert one of the balls. I had the lightest ball (35 grams) in the holder. I didn’t need any lube to get the ball in, as I just used my own wetness. It was easy enough to keep this ball inside, so I decided to jump two notches to 60 grams.
Of course after only using it once I cannot tell you how well this works, but since the third ball was what made me realize that my pelvic floor muscles are not strong at all, I will continue to do the exercises, and will gradually ‘upgrade’ to heavier balls or other combinations until my muscles are stronger. I will not promise anything, but I might blog about this again in future to tell you about my progress.
One thing I wondered about is whether the balls can be worn without the holder. If I read the instructions on the leaflet that was inside the box, they do not mention anything regarding the holders. Under the tips section it says: Don’t panic if you have trouble getting them back out if htey get stuck. They can’t get lost in there so relax, add some more lube, move around or squat and bear down. They’ll come out.
See, it sounds as if the holders are not necessary. I might try using them without the holders and if I do, I will report back.
