    7 Highly Rated Kegel Products People Actually Swear By

    Because most people actually do Kegels wrong.

    Kegels are exercises that strengthen your pelvic floor — aka the muscles that support your bladder, uterus, and intestines — and a strong pelvic floor is good for a bunch of health and personal reasons.

    You know, like not leaking urine (which, sorry, you'll probably do at some point in your life, whether it's due to pregnancy, aging, or other stress) and improving your sexual sensation in general. Speaking of, Kegels don't necessarily tighten your vagina, as people tend to describe it, but they do improve the "tone" and give you the capacity to grip those muscles tighter.

    And while you can do Kegels without the aid of a product, ~Kegelcisers~ and trackers can be very helpful for people who need a little more guidance, instruction, or motivation. Just make sure to check with your doctor if you're unsure what you need — a product that is great for one vagina might not be the best for yours.

    1. Joy ON Kehel, which comes with a massage function that helps you learn which muscles to contract.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    It also comes with an app that evaluates the condition of your pelvic muscles, as well as several different training modes and exercises.

    Promising review: "Nearly a year after having my son, I was still needing to wear pantyliners far more often than I liked. Kegels bore me and never seemed to be doing much good, so in desperation, I ordered this. So far I am very happy with it and think I'm noticing some improvement. I must not have been doing Kegels correctly before; I like that the app gives feedback so I can make sure I'm using the correct muscles. I also like that there are two different kinds of exercises — endurance and speed contractions." —bookgirl810s

    Get it from Amazon for $69.

    2. Intimate Rose Kegel Exercise Weight Set, a set of six silicone weights rated the #1 bestseller (with a 4.5 average rating!) in Kegel devices on Amazon.

    amazon.com

    You start with the weight you can hold for at least two minutes, then work your way up by ~exercising~ 15 minutes every day. Tbh, you can knock it out when you're in the shower.

    Promising review: "I was feeling 'off' and worried that after two kids and some aging I wasn't as tight and strong as I'd like to be. These are so easy to use and the results have been awesome — stronger pelvic floor, less feeling like I have to run to the bathroom, not worried about leaking if I cough or do jumping jacks, increased pleasure for both my husband and myself, and renewed confidence. In general everything just feels tighter and stronger and better." —Songbird

    Get it from Amazon for $49.99.

    3. Elvie, a sleek trainer that comes with an app that helps you gameify your Kegels.

    amazon.com

    I've personally got an Elvie trainer and I'm a little obsessed — or at least I was, because I don't have to use it much anymore after using it consistently for around two months and reaching a strength level I was comfortable with. But the app's games are fun and motivating, especially if you're competitive and like beating your own high scores.

    Promising review: "I've seen a pelvic floor therapist in my 20s and now my 30s, most recently due to childbirth. Elvie gives me the benefit of biofeedback (a method a physical therapist uses in order to train muscles of the pelvic floor in a way that's easy for the patient) at home. I don't have to schedule any appointments or go change my schedule in order to get this. And as an exercise physiologist, I recommend it for all my clients. It increases hip stability for stronger glutes, it reduces back strain and, of course, decreases leakage and increases sexual pleasure." —Miriam Rasmussen

    Get it from Amazon for $199.

    4. Ben Wa Kegel Balls, a classic no-frills weight set that gets the job done.

    amazon.com

    It comes in two different weights (single and double) and a resistance band you can use to add intensity to your workouts once you really want to step up your game.

    Promising review: "I was surprised how fast this product made a difference. I wanted to try this for the longest time, but I wasn't sure if I would be successful with it. At first, I was a bit unsure how to use it, but after the first successful time with the help of the instructions, it was so easy going forward." —FS

    Get it from Amazon for $21.85.

    5. Lelo Luna Beads, a customizable set designed to be pleasurable as well as effective.

    amazon.com

    Customizable meaning you can mix and match the different balls to increase the weight as you improve. They also come in pastel pink and blue if the black is a little hardcore for you.

    Promising review: "These provide an odd workout for me and I really enjoy the challenge they can provide. I like these a lot because there is a ball inside each weight that moves around when I move, increasing the sensation and forcing me to work harder with them in. The moving ball was really odd the first time I used it, but I quickly realized the benefits ;)" —siri

    Get it from Amazon for $57.60.

    6. K-fit Kegel Toner, a high-tech unit that basically does Kegels for you, no work required on your part.

    amazon.com

    Despite looking super high-tech, the K-fit is designed to be inserted and worn throughout the day as you go about your business so you get get a ~workout~ without thinking much about it.

    Promising review: "It is basically a TENS (transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation) unit that does Kegels for you through electrical stimulation of your PC muscles, and you can feel them! You'll feel them tightening and release with no work on your part. It has replaced my manual Kegel workouts. I know this is a little pricy but I fully recommend making the investment." —Tammi

    Get it from Amazon for $160.

    7. Shibari Cherry Kegel Balls, probably the most adorable vaginal weight set you'll ever encounter.

    amazon.com

    Like, look at them. Plus, they're flexible and less bulky than a lot of alternatives if comfort is a big concern for you.

    Promising review: "These are great! Very discrete and you can take them on the go with the actual packaging! Super cute, which is a big bonus." —Cynthia

    Get it from Amazon for $26.41.
