OK, chaps, I know you’re reading this too (which I don’t mind), but nature didn’t equip you for this, so it’s one for the ladies.
Ages ago, much to my reluctance, I saw the continence nurse, and she pronounced (much as I’d already suspected) that there were “no real issues”.
However, in the course of the conversation, I did ask whether pelvic floor (aka Kegel) exercises were a good idea, and she said yes, and that she’d give me a leaflet. However, she forgot, and I forgot. No leaflet!
Now I do know that you can do them yourself with absolutely no equipment whatsoever (other than what God gave you), and I’m not going to enter into a description of how (though oddly, it would be somewhat hard to explain, even if I did).
However, I’m just wondering if anyone has found any benefit from any of the many gadgets and devices on the market, ranging from cheap weight sets with no working parts, to electronic muscle stimulators (no, not the ones you can get in Ann Summers - the ones you can get in Boots), costing well over £100.
I was just having a look on Amazon, but was absolutely flummoxed by the number of things available - many of them five-star rated.
I do realise this is a sensitive subject, but have chosen not to go Anon, in the hope it may encourage others that sensitive subjects are OK.
However, if anyone wants to reply to me anon, or would rather do so by private message, I quite understand.
I just wonder, is it worth spending a LOT of money on these things, or should I just get a sub £20 set of DIY weights, and see how things go with those, before spending a fortune on something I may not take to?
I have to say, some of them do look like torture implements, and I thought: “No way!”, even if 142 women have rated them five stars!
