Kegel Alternatives

Kegel exercising is a popular technique women have used for years to attempt to strengthen their pelvic muscles I order to increase bladder control and vaginal tightness. Although easy to do, it must be done three times a day for weeks and then continued indefinitely to maintain muscle control. The success rate is limited and seems to work on a small group of individuals who are highly motivated to consistently practice it's techniques. Often women abandon this for surgery. ThermiVa vaginoplasty is the better alternative to both. 


Why does ThermiVa work for bladder control/urinary incontinence? 


ThermiVa has been quite successful in our practice at helping women reduce, if not completely prevent, the number of urinary leakage events they experience daily.  The majority of women that we treat are for stress incontinence, when urine leaks with pressure from activities such as laughing, sneezing or jumping.  The radiofrequency delivers heat to the female genital area, increasing circulation, sensitivity and tissue tightening.  All of this helps reduce or prevent leakage of urine. 


How does ThermiVa eliminate the need for kegel exercises?


Kegel exercises strengthen the pelvic floor muscles through squeezing and holding the levator muscles for five seconds, then releasing for five seconds, for 100 repetitions daily.  While kegel exercises may be successful in toning the pelvic floor, they do nothing to alter the location of the muscles.

Vaginal Rejuvenation, or vaginoplasty, is an elective surgical procedure which returns the pelvic floor muscles to their original, youthful, pre-baby location. This results in a more gratifying sexual experience for women and their partners.
