First Steps With Intimate Rose Kegel Exercise Weights

In this video,'s Dr. Amanda Olson, certified pelvic floor rehabilitation therapist, describes how to get started with the Intimate Rose Kegel Weight System for women who have just purchased the system and are looking forward to using it for the first time. Dr. Olson walks you through the entire process, starting with opening your delivery, which will be sent in discreet packaging, and removing the white box that contains the vaginal weights.

This set of six weights are color-coordinated, with the lightest being colored white and each heavier weight colored progressively darker until the final weight is a deep, rich purple. Dr. Olson recommends starting with the white-colored weight, inserting it as you would a tampon, and then getting dressed and going about your day as normal for a few minutes to evaluate it. If you find this weight is too heavy, don't get disheartened; over time, your pelvic floor muscles can use even this lightest weight to become stronger, just as any other muscle will if you exercise it.

If the weight slips out when you stand up, you can reinsert it and sit down on a supportive seat. This will reinforce the pelvic floor muscles. Holding this position for 10 to 15 minutes, with or without doing Kegels at the same time, is enough to begin the process of strengthening those muscles; if you're unfamiliar with a Kegel exercise, you can either imagine you are trying to cut off the flow of urine or that your urethra is a telescope and you're trying to draw it up and inside your body. Doing this daily will begin strengthening your muscles to the point where you can tolerate standing with the weight inside you; this process can take anywhere from a few days to a few weeks.

Once you become strong enough to maintain a weight inside you without challenge, it's time to progress to the next-heaviest weight until you find one that provides you some more resistance. You then simply repeat this process of having it in for 10 to 15 minutes a day until you can move up to yet another heavier weight. Dr. Olson recommends placing the weight inside after waking up but before showering, as the body movements you undergo while showering provide a wide range of ways to work your pelvic floor muscles. Another recommendation is to do Kegels while standing up for added challenge and even more resistance. This will help strengthen the pelvic floor muscles against hard forces like coughing, laughing, and sneezing as well as condition them for better day-long endurance. Dr. Olson also adds that consistency is key, and that is how to meet your goals. If you can do so before reaching the highest-level weight, that's perfectly fine.
