As a mom of three, my body has drastically changed over the past 9 years, from gaining weight, giving birth, losing weight, and so many other general aging and mom-type changes. One of those changes that I am not so fond of, and know other women have similar issues, is muscle weakness in one general area, my pelvic muscles.
Women have, for years, been given the recommendation to do Kegel exercises to help keep our pelvic muscles strong. Kegel exercises were developed, in 1948, by Dr. Arnold Kegel, and while he discovered the muscles could strengthen and improve support, over time and more knowledge, it has been discovered that even when shown to do them correctly, women are not and can actually be doing more harm then good. I know I have never been great at remembering to do them or even sure if I am doing them correctly.
The pelvic floor is a group of muscles at the base of the torso and is responsible to supporting the internal organs. These muscles can be stretched and weakened over time, sometimes due to childbirth and also due to aging. Having a strong pelvic floor is important to help avoid bladder leakage, prolapse, and to increase intimate satisfaction.
I notice my bladder issues the most when I sneeze, but have also had some issues when I run. I know I am not alone with this issue, one third of the female population joins me, and while it is common to experience bladder leakage, it is nothing to be ignored and can get worse over time. Most women with this issue turn to quick fixes, like wearing pads to prevent embarrassing leaks.
We were approached by a company that has created a product to provide a better solution for strengthening the pelvic floor naturally and quickly.
InControl Medical has created APEX.
Apex is a natural, at home treatment device, specifically designed by InControl Medical, to provide a better solution to strengthening the pelvic floor and treating bladder leakage at the source. Apex takes the route of using muscle stimulation, that in turn activates the muscles to contract and relax, improving the strength, restoring control, and eliminating leakage.
The APEX device is made of medical grade, phthalate-free silicone and stainless steel. It is a true medical device that is available over the counter, no pills, no surgery, no pain, and retails for $249.
How Does the APEX Work?
The APEX has a revolutionary design that is soft and customizable to fit for your comfort. Once it has been inserted, the APEX inflates, via a hand pump, and has 10 levels of muscle stimulation for a comfortable, effective way to strengthen your pelvic floor. You should slowly progress the levels until you feel a full contraction of your pelvic floor muscles. It is recommended that the APEX is used for 5-10 minutes daily until leakage has stopped, then use 1-2 times a week for maintenance.
