What is Stress Incontinence?
Affecting roughly one in three women, stress incontinence is the unintentional loss of urine due to physical movement or activity such as coughing, sneezing, running or heavy lifting. Related to a weakness of the pelvic floor, it's frequently caused by pregnancy, childbirth or menopause, but any number of factors can contribute, including hereditary vulnerability. Luckily, the condition can be dealt with, and 70% of cases can be treated using weighted vaginal cones like Aquaflex.
When Can I Expect Results?
Used for just 20 minutes a day, an improvement in pelvic floor strength can be expected in only 12 weeks! Recommended by health professionals worldwide, Aquaflex Cones are an effective treatment for pelvic floor problems.
Why is Pelvic Floor Strength Important?
The pelvic floor should be taut in order to maintain bladder control and sensitivity. It can become weak for several reasons such as childbirth, age, pelvic damage or surgery. This can cause pain or prolapse and make the pelvic muscle bow rather than remain tight and toned.
With age and the menopause, oestrogen levels drop and the elasticity of the pelvic floor muscle decreases. This can be overcome by exercising the pelvic floor and strengthening the muscles to regain a tight and toned pelvic floor.

How Soon After Childbirth Can I Use Aquaflex?
This is different for everyone, and it's important to pay attention to the queues from your body once you feel comfortable. We would recommend you wait until any stitches or grazes have healed, which may be up to 8 weeks after childbirth. If you are unsure, it's best to wait until you're given the go ahead following your postnatal check-up.
Can I Use Aquaflex at Any Time of Day?
Aquaflex Cones are designed to be convenient, so you can use them at any time that fits into your schedule. Keep in mind that your muscles will become tired as the day goes on, so your exercise may be more effective in the morning than in the evening.
Should I Use Aquaflex Every Day?
Your results will be most effective if you use Aquaflex every day, which should provide some positive results within the first eight weeks. For best results, use Aquaflex Exercise Cones every day for up to 12 weeks.
What if Aquaflex Doesn't Work for Me?
Exercising with Aquaflex Cones provides results more often than not, but in some cases some extra attention may be required.

Should I Stop Using Aquaflex Once I Get Results?
As with any muscle, it's important to occasionally exercise to maintain tone and strength. Once you've finished your 12 week strengthening program, using Aquaflex once or twice a week should help you maintain a constant strength.
Are Aquaflex Cones Hygienic?
