How To Use Ben Wa Balls Correctly

For women who do not know what Ben Wa Balls are, the first thing to do is explain and make it very clear what they are and in what situations we use them. Ben Wa or Chinese balls are balls with another ball inside and string attached to the outside. These balls are inserted inside the vagina, leaving the string hanging out as if it were a tampon. While walking or moving, the inner balls move colliding against the walls of the outer ball and causing a small vibration which is picked up by the walls of the vagina causing a reflexive contraction response, as well as the clamping mechanism which is designed to stop something falling out. Ben Wa balls are increasingly used and recognized as a method of strengthening the pelvic floor muscles and therefore, as a method to prevent and correct problems such as urinary incontinence, postpartum recovery, improved processes of vaginal lubrication and sensitivity.

How about for new mothers? They improve the healing of any tears and help the vagina regain strength and tension after delivery. And we cannot forget the benefits for menopausal women. Ben Wa balls can make the menopause more bearable, reduce the risk of urinary incontinence and relieve cystitis and vaginal pain. But here comes the best part! All women who use them find an increase in sexual performance, sensitivity, excitement and pleasure, facilitating the achievement of orgasm and increasing their intensity.

Can you use these when you have prolapsed organs, or should I just wait until after my hysterectomy?

Hello Lisa,

If you have a uterine prolapse, we would recommend not using ben wa balls. It would depend on the severity, but there is a risk of worsening the situation. We would recommend kegel exercsises for strengthening after a prolapse. However, as always, this should be done under the advisement of a related medical health professional. Also, if you do wait until after a hysterectomy, then please make sure you have the all clear from your doctor before using the balls as you will need time to recover.

Thanks for the comment and all the best!

My ben-Wa balls r NOT hooked together do i place i in then the other or do i put them in something?

Hi Jessica,

It is always best to have some way of pulling them out, lest they get stuck (not common, but does happen). If you don't have something attached to them, you can move around to loosen them, squat and bear down, add more lubrication or even jump up and down. Just remember that if you do tie a string around them or use a silicone holder, ensure they are hygienic.

There are many reasons it could be both his penis that has shrunk, which can happen when taking certain substances. The vagina may also lose elasticity if you have had a baby recently or are going through hormonal changes.
Hope this helps
