Are you ready to switch to a Menstrual Cup?

The scandal of mesh implants and the devastating side effects caused to thousands of women. Have you been offered a mesh implant? Kath Sansom who leads Sling The Mesh talked on Wednesday on the Jeremy Vine BBC Radio 2 how she had mild incontinence and was offered the mesh implant! The pelvic floor muscles are like any other muscle in the body - they need to be exercised and I will endeavour to raise awareness wherever and whenever I can. I have been doing my Kegels since I was 14, and I assumed every woman did. Secret Whispers wins #SBS on Theo Paphitis this week on Twitter.
Pelvic floor trauma described as an injury
I heard Rachel talking on the radio about her issues and sent her a Secret Whispers® Kegel Weight Kit and around the same time she had been introduced to Emma James, the physio I mentioned in an earlier blog. Between my Kegel Kit and the other options, Emma suggested, Rachel is now on a journey of recovery. She has accepted that her pelvic floor weakness is down to an injury - this is a major psychological step forward. If your ankle is broken you put a cast on it - you have to accept if your pelvic floor is not working as it should you need to take action to fix it.
It’s key to be aware that just because you don’t have an issue yet, doesn’t mean you have a strong pelvic floor - it’s a muscle like any other - if you don’t use it, it’ll become weak. The Secret Whispers® Kegel Weight Kit is like a weighted tampon. Once inserted into your vagina, gravity does its bit and the correct pelvic floor muscles engage to keep it in - think about it as a dumbbell for your pelvic floor. And talking of tampons, Jo recalled the first time she saw a tampon and remembered her thoughts were “What?? It goes where??” and she was having the same thoughts seeing my pelvic floor toner! I’d love to know your first thoughts on seeing it?
What drives me in this quest is that there’s so much awareness that needs raising but I have to tell you, when I hear from a woman, who’s used my product, telling me “I’m pad-free, Julie!” I do a little dance!
If you’ve followed my business journey you’ll not be surprised to hear I managed another “first” - the first time the National Running Show had gone digital. After my breakthrough earlier this year...
