Pelvic Floor Stimulation: The Latest in Sexual Health Technology
The advancement of technology has opened up new doors in the world of sexual health, one of which is pelvic floor stimulation. This type of device provides users with a non-invasive way to strengthen the pelvic floor muscles and increase sexual pleasure. As the latest in sexual health technology, pelvic floor stimulation has become a popular choice for those looking to improve their sexual health. In this blog post, we'll explore what pelvic floor stimulation is, the benefits it provides, and how to find the right device for your needs.
What is pelvic floor stimulation?
Pelvic floor stimulation (PFS) is a type of electrical stimulation therapy used to strengthen the muscles of the pelvic floor. The pelvic floor is a group of muscles, ligaments, and connective tissue located in the pelvic area. It provides support for the organs of the pelvis. Weakness in the pelvic floor muscles can lead to issues like urinary incontinence and sexual dysfunction. Pelvic floor stimulation is a form of physical therapy that can help people strengthen these muscles and improve their overall pelvic health. During PFS treatment, an electrical current is delivered through electrodes placed directly on the pelvic floor. This electrical current causes the muscles to contract, which helps to strengthen them. PFS is generally considered safe and effective.
How does it work?
Using an electric stimulation device for kegel exercises for men, a small electric current is applied to the pelvic floor muscles to contract and relax them, as needed, to provide an effective exercise session. The eKegel is the newest and most popular kegel exerciser for men.
What are the benefits?
Stimulation of pelvic floor muscles can have several benefits for sexual health, including increasing arousal and intensifying orgasms, alleviating stress, and increasing sexual satisfaction. The treatment for urinary incontinence and pelvic floor problems, such as accidents with weaker bladder control, may also involve pelvic floor stimulation. By strengthening the muscles of the pelvic floor, the device can reduce the incidence of accidents. The increased blood flow and muscle contractions may also result in stronger orgasms for men.
How to use a pelvic floor stimulator
Using a pelvic floor stimulator for men can help strengthen and tone your pelvic floor muscles. It is a simple device that you can use in the comfort of your own home.
For the eKegel, first, squat a bit lift your scrotum and apply the perineum pad (the rectangular one) on your perineum (between your scrotum and your anus). Then stick the coccyx pad (the square one) at an angle on your lower back. Then, you can begin adjusting the settings of the machine. Generally speaking, start with a low intensity and gradually increase as needed. However, we recommend the following sequence:
- Start by setting the wave type to square. The wave type is the shape of the electrical current from off to on. In the case of the square wave, you are essentially looking at a current that goes from 0% to 100% immediately and then goes back to 0% immediately. In contrast, the sine wave, for example, rises to 100% progressively and then returns to 0% progressively. The square wave type will give you the longest time at 100%.
- Next, set the pulse width to max (10/10). The pulse width will affect how deep you feel the contractions. The greater the pulse width, the deeper the contraction.
- Next, set the frequency to about 6 out of 10. That's a personal preference, you could start lower if you'd like.
- Lastly, increase the intensity to get a strong contraction, but you don't want to get into the uncomfortable zone. Usually, you can set the intensity at about 7, or 8 on some days. Again, the objective is to feel the strongest contraction without discomfort. At 3 or 4 of intensity, you should feel the muscles contract, but you can increase to 5, 6, or 7 and get deeper contractions. Again what's important is to get strong contractions without discomfort. At this level, some men will see the base of their penis rise slightly with each contraction, but it's not something in itself to look for. What's key is just getting the muscles to contract.
As for the routine, it will progress with time as your muscles become stronger. In the first 6-8 weeks, you probably want to use the eKegel for a daily 10 minutes session about 3-4 times per week. In the beginning, you may need more resting periods than later in the process because your muscles are not as strong as they will be. Eventually, you could go to 4-5 times a week. However, there is a point where you will have noticed significant improvement in ED or incontinence issues. For incontinence, you will feel better bladder emptying and control, for ED, you might start noticing spontaneous erections along with morning erections. That's a sign that the mechanic is fully functioning.
At this stage, you may only use the eKegel once a week or as needed for tune-ups. Since the gains you will notice will come from stronger muscles, some tune-ups as needed will make sure that you can rely on this new muscle strength all your life!
