Should I be using yoni-eggs?

There has been a lot of buzz around crystal dildos and yoni-eggs over the last few years. So, we want to clear a few things up. First, are yoni eggs safe to use? Second, will yoni-eggs unleash the sexual goddess within? Most medical professionals agree that yoni eggs do not have any benefits and can harm your vagina.

Increases chances of bacterial and fungal infection - no thanks!

Gemstones like jade or onyx are semi-porous materials. They are challenging to clean thoroughly due to their porous nature, meaning bacteria will stick to the eggs and invite more opportunities for infection risks. In addition, Yoni eggs can cause microscopic cuts in your vagina. This could allow bacteria to enter your bloodstream -- and increase chances of bacterial, fungal, or even toxic shock syndrome.

Yoni-eggs for pelvic floor training (Kegels)

Pelvic floor training is a great way to strengthen a weak pelvic floor. However, using a yoni egg requires you to clench the muscles in your vagina constantly to keep the egg from falling out. This can actually cause harm! Pelvic floor exercises (Kegels) are as much about the full relax and release sequence as they are about the contraction. Otherwise, you risk experiencing muscles spasms in your pelvic floor. Like any exercise, practicing a full range of motion along with proper breathing technique is best.

Alternatives to Yoni-Eggs

Suppose you want to strengthen your pelvic floor. Look for products made from non-porous, high-quality materials - like Femme Flexor, a safe and easy-to-use tool to strengthen pelvic floor muscles.

If you are experiencing symptoms of a weak pelvic floor, such as incontinence or prolapse it is recommended that you seek advice from a specialist such as a pelvic floor physiotherapist. If you are experiencing pelvic pain, seek out a specialist right away.
