OK - two words: Incredible results.
Now - a whole lot of words......
First off, let me say, disregard the products advice that the firm flex strength should be purchased by women age 18 to 27, who have never had children, vaginal surgery, or incontinence. PULEESE! I'm 52, gave birth to two children vaginally and w/the first my vaginal wall was torn so badly it required OVER 50 stitches. The doctor told me exactly this: "I quit counting the stitches after 50" I don't attribute even that experience as to why I have experienced stress incontinence. There have been "nun studies" (which are particularly valuable because these women have never had children) and they have found the same rate of incontinence. It's age, it's a loss of muscle which is why this product works. You can sit around all day and "squeeze" but this is resistance training, just like lifting weights is resistance training. If you flex you arm 30x w/no weight, or flex your arm 30x w/8 lb. dumb bells, which do you figure is going to more effective? Why this product is so effective is no mystery.
My problem began after my second child in my early 30's. First I noticed after jumping on a friend's trampoline that my trampoline days were OVER. Then a few years later, I noticed I better give up jogging (even though I never jogged). Then in my early forties, I noticed that I probably should not put the high energy into dancing that I once did. Then a few years later I noticed that if I were to ever to cough or sneeze in public again, I should probably be using a pad on a daily basis. What finally got me on the computer and start looking for some kind of solution (because I was certain I was going to need surgery by the time I was 54) was the day I was WALKING the dog - yes, I was doing nothing but walking! I couldn't believe it when I noticed I was leaking a tiny bit. We all know, it only takes 4/5 drops of urine on your cotton panties to feel like you've really peed yourself. Four to five drops walking - quarter cup if using a trampoline! Enough was enough!
I (accidently) bought the "firm" flex strength. Not sure how that happened, me or whoever shipped it, but glad the mistake was made. I didn't realize the product came with two gyneflexs either, so when it arrived, what I thought I had was a "regular" strength and a "firm" strength. I thought great, they give you the regular strength to work up to the firm. When I first used it my thought was "oh geez, I should have bought the "light" because my squeeze wasn't doing what I expected (no wonder). I soldiered on and tried squeezing that thing everyday for a week. I should mention here, I don't use the product the way they instruct. I insert and squeeze open and close for 100 repetitions. You don't have to do exactly what they say for this to be effective. Anyway, in ONE WEEK ladies, ONE WEEK, I could not only walk w/o leaking, I could actually sneeze or cough (lightly)and not leak. Didn't go dancing, jogging, or trampolining at anytime during that week, so I can't say what would have happened there. I suspect had I, it probably would have been wise to use a diaper, I mean, after all, it was only one week of using this thing.
Now here's the ADDED benefit - sex has never, ever been better. I didn't buy this for a sexual benefit, it was strictly because I wanted dry underwear and was so, so tired of having to wear a pad every day of my life. I didn't even realize there was a sexual benefit w/using this (need I add that I didn't read even one review?). I'm going to be somewhat explicit here (hence the anonymous name) and hope I don't offend Amazon's or reader's sensibilities, but I'm just trying to be very honest. After 51 years, and w/the use of the Gyneflex, I discovered my G-spot! I SERIOUSLY didn't think that thing existed, but let me assure you, it does. I have never had trouble experiencing orgasm, and often have multiple orgasms, but they have always been clitoral. For the first time in my life, I am now experiencing internal orgasms. AMAZING. My husband did not know I was even using this product and after the first week of using it, when we did have sex, he said "Wow, that was great, it's always good, but that was great". I bought this last spring of '11 and had such a quick and astounding result, that I rather slacked off after a couple months of using it, to the point where I completely stopped (never did like exercising). Well, needless to say, don't use it, you lose it. Same applies here. This past December, I noticed when coughing or sneezing lightly, I was leaking again, although better sex (and that beloved G-spot) have remained the entire time. So I recently pulled it out and started again. I am now using the firmest of the firm strength - can't close it all the way yet, but I'm close, real close. And this from a 52 yr. old woman who has given vaginal birth (one scarringly so)to two children.
I don't know if everyone will have the same amazing, quick result as me, but one can hope. Look at the reviews, women who bought this are trying to tell you something.
Good luck and happy exercising!!
