A post with good news from PeriCoach:
At-home pelvic floor muscle exercises just got easier! PeriCoach, the “Kegel” trainer, is now available directly to women without a prescription.
As many of us know, bladder leaking is common beginning perimenopause, but it’s not normal. Strengthening the pelvic floor is recommended as a first-line treatment. Tightening the pelvic floor also helps with sexual function.
The good news about PeriCoach is that it has been studied and clinically evaluated by women’s health physical therapists, urogynecologists, OBGYNs, and urogynecological nurses, with data and case reports published in peer-reviewed journals
“As a physical therapist, I feel confident recommending to my patients and using myself, vaginal devices that were developed and evaluated first as medical products,” says Heather Jeffcoat, DPT, founder of Fusion Wellness & Physical Therapy. “PeriCoach has a well-established profile as an easy-to-use, effective, and affordable home pelvic floor trainer.”
Listen to a testimony by a PeriCoach user:
More great news! PeriCoach has just been approved by the FDA for its benefits in improving sexual function. Here’s part of the press release:
“Studies have found that that sexual complaints, from low libido to problems with sexual arousal to inability to achieve orgasm, are common among women with pelvic floor disorders.
‘Unfortunately, many women feel that decreased sexual function is an inevitable part of aging,’ said Leslie Rickey, MPH, MD, Associate Professor of Urology and of Obstetrics, Gynecology and Reproductive Sciences; Fellowship Director, Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery, Yale School of Medicine. ‘But women should know there are self-help strategies, and now home pelvic floor training support with PeriCoach can help improve pelvic floor muscle strength and sexual function at ANY age.'”
