Stop putting random things in your lady parts!

I'm just going to put this out there - unless there is a medical reason, you shouldn't put random things in your vagina. Like ever. Jade eggs for example. Definitely do not do this. It is a terrible idea to put rocks in your vagina. Penises, tampons, menstrual cups, fingers - sure. Rocks - definitely no. Wasps nests - my god, the horror. Putting random items in your lady parts can cause a host of problems. From infections, to vaginal wall scratching, to just plain getting stuck (um, super awkward). Also, by forcing your vag muscles to constantly contract, you end up screwing them up and will have problems releasing them properly.

There are other ways to strengthen your lady part muscles without walking around with an egg in there. For example:

  • Kegels: You've probably heard of these, but are you doing them right?Here is a quick guide. Don't forget that releasing the pelvic floor muscles are just as important as tightening them. This is an interesting visualization aid using a corkscrew (please don't go put a corkscrew up your lady parts. Watch the video). 
  • Squats - yes, good old fashioned squats. But make sure you are properly aligned and using the right muscles. Shins should be vertical (up and down), and your booty should be out (untucked). 
  • Bridge pose where you lift and lower your hips while engaging your pelvic floor muscles. 

And don't fall for the vaginal weights either. They seem to be the rage (seriously, what is up with everyone sticking heavy things in their lady parts?!) but studies have shown that they didn't really do anything.

As always, if you are having any pain, discomfort, problems with peeing, make an appointment with your lady parts doctor!
