Amanda had uncomfortable prolapse symptoms for 6 years, before finding something that actually worked for her

3 Things Doctor’s don’t tell you about your pelvic floor. Plus 1 Bonus Tip

Amanda

Age: 56

Symptoms: Urge incontinence, vaginal dryness, bulging

Condition: Cystocele & Rectocele

When Amanda was about 50 years old, she discovered something strange “down there” while taking a shower. One of her first thoughts was that it could be a prolapse. 

After her doctor confirmed it was prolapse, she told Amanda to do a lot of Kegels. Amanda was diligent and did as advised, but things only got worse over the next 6 years. 

Amanda was inadvertently making her pelvic floor more tense when it really needed relaxation and greater flexibility. Of course, she didn’t know this at the time but wished her doctor would have known better. This caused more complications and limited her life.  

One of the symptoms responsible for the limitations Amanda faced was bulging. The bulging didn’t start off bad in the morning, but as the day went on it got progressively worse. By dinner time, she found it hard to stand for long periods and had to rush through making the meal. 

Also, Amanda would worry about spending a weekend away with friends, unsure how long she would be able to walk for, an activity she and her friends loved doing together. This also brought on feelings of guilt, because she felt like she was holding her friends back. 

Since Kegels didn’t work for Amanda, her doctor suggested surgery. But, this was right before lockdown, so she couldn’t have it done right away.

Instead, Amanda searched for alternatives and this is when she discovered the No Kegels System. Halfway through the 12-week program, she already started to experience drastic improvements.

What did she love most about the No Kegels System?

She loved that she was able to try many different methods all within one system. The methods that Amanda enjoyed the most included myofascial release, hypopressives, relaxation exercises, and guided meditations. She said all these techniques were huge for her.
