Yesmina sports bra review

Posted on Monday, August 5th, 2019

Although the ‘Yesmina’ cotton sports bra is primarily for aftercare of breast augmentation and positioning of implants, I used it whilst in the gym and during a personal training session. It definitely lived up to its promise of ‘extra compression in essential areas’ and held everything in place even after running and jumping for over an hour. The lightweight material was extremely flexible and didn’t impair my movements whatsoever; I was able to swing my arms, lift weights and breathe deeply without feeling restricted by heavy, uncomfortable fabric. I was surprised as although the bra is 100% cotton, after sweating the fabric was not clammy, heavy or damp showing that there is moisture wicking element to the garment. The adjustable back hook and eye closure was easy to manage with variations of size and the wide shoulder straps provided support without making annoying ridges in my skin. The bra was easy to wash at a low heat in the machine and didn’t run. I would highly recommend this product as an incredibly supportive and comfortable sports bra and at a very reasonable price- it’s basic but it does the job far better than many other expensive sports companies.

Sexually stimulating drugs such as Viagra offer a remedy for the flaccid penis but after a period of time the effects begin to wear off and loose it’s spontaneity and the flaccid state begins to return.

Kegel Exercise Using Kegel Balls

Posted on Monday, October 16th, 2017

Particularly recommended for the postpartum uterine involution as a treatment to alleviate and prevent incontinence and strengthen the pelvic floor and helping to have more satisfying sex.

The pelvic floor can weaken during pregnancy, child birth and post partum.    During pregnancy it is caused by the weight of the uterus. During birth it is caused by the baby stretching the vaginal walls as it passes through the vaginal canal and further aggravated if an episiotomy is carried out.    During the post partum period if the weakening muscles are not exercised or carried out too vigorously the weakening of the pelvic floor muscles may be accentuated.

The menopause may bring hormonal changes causing the pelvic floor to become less flexible with weaken tissues. There are many other causes for weakening pelvic floor muscles for example high impact sport, genetic inheritance, obesity, chronic constipation and chronic coughing and stress.

The use of Kegel Balls adds to self administered exercises helping to strengthen the pelvic and vaginal muscles adding a further dimension to ones independence and self esteem.

Kegel Balls is available from our website under   click on sexual health then women’s gynae health. Alternately, call our sales office on 01483 456007
