Q: Would the Intensity help my wife with Kegel exercises?

Q: Would the Intensity help my wife with Kegel exercises?

by Dr. Barb DePree MD

You say your wife has lichen sclerosis and uses Estring, a ring placed in the vagina to provide localized hormones; she has difficulty doing Kegel exercises correctly.

You asked. Dr. Barb answered.The Intensity is very effective at contracting the pelvic floor muscles, which is does with electrical stimulation through specially designed electrodes. Contracting the muscles builds muscle tone, and it sounds like you and she are aware of the benefits of pelvic floor strength: keeping organs in their places, preventing incontinence, and strengthening orgasm.

The lichen sclerosis should not be a limitation in using the Intensity. Because the electrical stimulation works best if the Intensity is expanded for full contact with the walls of the vagina, it would work best if she slips the Estring ring out before using the Intensity, and reinserts it after. Otherwise the ring will prevent full contact and limit the effectiveness of Intensity use.

I hope this is helpful!
