The Kegelcisor: Brilliant or Bizarre?

After you have your baby, your doctor or mid-wife will most likely recommend kegel exercises to strengthen your perineal muscles and reduce any incontinence you might have.

Some women wonder if they’re doing them correctly (there aren’t many hands-on how-to explanations), while others simply forget to do them during the course of a busy day.

So what about a device that does them for you?

The Kegelcisor from Gaiam (a company focusing on mind-body health) is a stainless steel, specially shaped device that automatically causes your pubococcygeus (PC) muscles to correctly contract because of its cool temperature.

I’d be interested to hear from a doctor or mid-wife on this one. Strengthening your pelvic floor is the most important way to keep everything tight and working — especially keeping your organs in place — and they’re easy enough to do discreetly. On the couch. Watching Parenthood. But I wonder exactly how many women are doing kegel exercises wrong, and who would prefer a device like the Kegelcisor?

Would you ever use this?
