Almost all the information about Yoni eggs is summarized below and can also be applied to ben wa balls (geisha balls). If you don't find the answer to your question after reading this page, please leave us a comment at the bottom of the article (even anonymous if you are shy) and we will add the information in the article. Don't hesitate because there is no such thing as a silly question! If you ask yourself a question, there is most certainly another woman on this planet who is asking herself the same one. It is thanks to you that we are gradually creating on this page the ultimate guide to Yoni's eggs.
What is the difference in use between pierced and unpierced eggs?
A pierced egg has a hole in which you can insert a string that will allow you to remove the egg easily and also allow you to attach a weight to it for some advanced exercises. Pierced eggs can also be used without string. They are an excellent choice for beginners who want to be reassured that they can remove their Yoni egg easily.
If you choose a pierced egg, the first thing you should do before exercising is to string it. At Karma Yoga Shop our pierced Yoni eggs come with a string. Afterwards if you want to change the string you can use unwaxed dental floss for the string as it is hygienic and disposable (it can be ordered online or found in pharmacies). You can also use fishing line as an alternative.
To start, choose the pierced egg if you are more comfortable knowing that you can take it out at any time. It can also be useful to have this string with you when you go to the toilet: urinate as usual and hold the string at the same time. It is very important to completely relax your muscles when you go to the bathroom. If the egg comes out on its own, it means you've probably had enough exercise for today and it's time to rest. Some women prefer unperforated eggs because it is easier to clean unperforated eggs after each use. The Yoni egg is not just a Kegel exercise tool.
It is a sacred object that is there to help you heal and transform you physically and emotionally. It is there to help you learn something new about yourself and to learn, you must listen carefully. Crystals are the elements of the earth from which they come and each egg has a personality. If the egg stays inside you longer than you expect, wait, relax and remember that it does the healing work you asked for. Learning to trust the process and relinquishing control can sometimes be one of the most important things to learn in order to have a fulfilling life and relationships. With practice, you will learn to expel the egg on command simply by the contractions/decontractions of your Yoni!
What size of Yoni egg to start with?
The smaller the size, the harder it is to smell the egg. As a general rule, women who have given birth and women over the age of 50 should start with a large egg size. Otherwise, the medium size is your best choice. Small eggs are not intended for small women but for experienced practitioners who have mastered the control of their muscles and wish to progress in their practice. Our medium size Yoni eggs measure 40×25 mm, which is generally the best size to start with for most women.
Which crystal to choose?
The best is to follow your intuition and let yourself be guided by the one that attracts you! You can also look at the pictures of our Yoni eggs on the store and read their descriptions to know which one would suit you best.
If you have bought several and are wondering where to start, we recommend jade. According to the teachings of the Taoist tradition, women should begin their healing process with Jade, then move on to Black Obsidian to work on their "dark side", and finally, when they feel ready, they can use Rose Quartz to open their hearts. These stones have been used for thousands of years.
All about the use of a Yoni egg
Before using your Yoni egg for the first time, make sure you inspect it thoroughly and make sure that the crystal has not been damaged during shipping. At Karma Yoga Shop we take care to pack your Yoni eggs well and ship them with love, so they should normally arrive in perfect condition. Please note that internal cracks are normal for many stones (such as rose quartz or amethyst for example). However, if you find external cracks (the ones you can feel with your finger), it means that the egg was damaged during shipping. Please do not use it and contact us immediately to return it to us.
After inspecting it, wash it twice in warm water. with soap and air dry it. It is preferable to use unscented natural organic body soap for sensitive skin.
You can also wipe your egg with cotton soaked in vodka or hard alcohol that you have on hand (do not use rubbing alcohol). Afterwards, rinse it thoroughly with water. A third way to clean the egg is to boil a pot of water and then remove it from the heat. Let the water cool down a bit, you should be able to put a finger in it. Now you can put your egg in the water for 12-15 minutes. You can add a few drops of tea tree oil to the water if you wish. Please don't boil your egg, it might crack.
Wash your egg well before and after each use. It is also a good idea to do an energetic cleansing and recharging of your Yoni egg before using it for the first time. In the same way as for crystals, you can use your preferred method. You can smoke your Yoni egg with sage or palo santo. You can also pass it under water with a clear intention of purification. Or you can leave your egg one night in the light of the moon. With daily practice, it is important to clean your yoni egg vigorously on a regular basis (every two or three days).
How do I insert my Yoni egg?
To begin with, it is not important to rush as soon as you receive your Yoni egg. You can start by carrying your egg in your pocket for a few days or sleep with it under your pillow. When you feel ready to insert your Yoni egg, as with any exercise program, it is important to warm up ??
Start with a gentle breast massage. You can use a silk scarf or a soft fabric. Massaging the breasts and nipples strains the endocrine system and stimulates the kidneys, where sexual energy is stored. While you do this, concentrate on your sensations. Focus your attention on your inner thighs, then on your groin, perineum and vulva. When you feel ready and relaxed, start by making circles around the vaginal opening.
If you feel the need, you can use any lubricant. My favorite is organic extra virgin coconut oil as opposed to synthetic products. Coconut oil is soothing and has natural antibacterial and antifungal properties. It is also relatively inexpensive and can be found in any organic supermarket or store.
The best position to insert a Yoni egg is to stand upright. Gently insert the egg starting with the wider end. Do not push it all the way to the cervix. You must push it gently, then let your muscles do the rest.
How often should I wear my Yoni egg?
Although Kegel exercises will improve your results with the Yoni egg, you can definitely reap the benefits simply by wearing it without doing anything! The egg works its magic anyway!
How long to wear a Yoni egg? We recommend starting with about 2 hours, 3 times a week. It is generally recommended to wear it for a maximum of 12 hours, but as always, trust your intuition. It is a good idea to take it out after 12 hours to clean it and let your yoni rest.
However, if you find that you find it difficult to hold the egg while you walk around, you should start by simply sitting with your egg without moving. Several times a week for 10 or 15 minutes (or as much time as you have), concentrate on squeezing the egg and trying to feel it. Very quickly, your strength will increase and you will be able to hold it and walk around with your Yoni egg.
Can I exercise with my yoni egg?
Unlike other muscles in the body, pelvic floor muscles have the ability to regenerate and repair themselves quickly. You can achieve any level of dexterity at any age, this is limited only by your desire and dedication. If one of the reasons you got your egg was to develop stronger muscles and regain control, yoni egg exercises will help you achieve these goals.
Many of us cannot feel our pelvic floor muscles at all. Some of us feel tension or pain, and some of us have muscles that are so relaxed that too much flexibility disturbs their balance in the pelvis. When you train with your Yoni egg, you can already start by gradually feeling, toning, strengthening and mobilizing your pelvic muscles. Gradually you will feel your egg more and more and will be able to squeeze it.
It is important to remember that Yoni egg exercises should be approached slowly and carefully. More advanced exercises can and should be done under the guidance of a pelvic specialist or Yoni egg instructor.
Women who experience excessive tension or pain in their pelvic floor should seek thorough information from their physician, gynecologist, physiotherapist, or midwife before beginning pelvic floor exercises.
Every body is different and we suggest that you work with a pelvic specialist or a Yoni egg specialist, who can recommend exercises with Yoni eggs specially designed for you.
How to do Kegel exercises with the Yoni egg?
It is very interesting to use your Yoni egg to do Kegel exercises. A "kegel" is the action of tightening and loosening your pelvic muscles... think of the movement you make when you have to pee and holding yourself, it's like a pinch. Conversely, loosening would be like letting you go to pee.
So here's a typical Kegel workout you can do :
1. In a slow and relaxed way, gradually contract and hold a pinch of the pelvic muscles for 3 seconds, then relax for 3 seconds. This is equivalent to 1 repetition.
2. Do it 10 times in a row, once a day, to work your slowly contracting muscle fibers, which maintain general muscle support.
3. After each set of 10 slow repetitions, add 10 quick press repetitions. To do this, repeat steps 1 and 2, but instead of holding for 3 seconds, hold for 1 second and then release. This works the "fast twitch" muscle fibers that come into play when you experience a sudden increase in pelvic pressure.
For the first series of slow contractions, increase your contraction time by 1 second each week until you contract for a 10 times 10 second contraction. Remember to rest and breathe between contractions. This exercise is the one that brings the most benefits, we strongly recommend it.
How to practice Yoni Yoga?
You will practice your traditional yoga session with the added bonus of inserting your Yoni egg before you start and removing it once you are finished.
Yoni Yoga consists of physical techniques (called poses) that focus on the pelvic muscles, combined with meditative breathing work and uterine connection. Yoni Yoga is used to strengthen, heal and promote a healthy uterine space, as well as to increase awareness and connection with feminine energy while surrendering to the moment allowing a person to be present with themselves, activating their sexual energy to allow the release of all their blockages.
Yoni Yoga can be done with or without a Yoni egg! By using a Yoni egg during your practice, you will obtain a deeper physical exercise and a more important spiritual work by activating the metaphysical energies. If you choose to use your Yoni egg, focus on contracting and releasing your pelvic floor muscles while you breathe in your posture. During each yoga pose, focus on deep controlled breathing while making a conscious connection with your uterine space. We strongly recommend that you find a Yoni Yoga teacher if you want to take this practice a step further.
I can't keep the egg inside, what should I do?
Don't worry, this is very common, because most of us have never exercised our vaginal muscles before. Don't be discouraged! All great achievements begin with a first step. Once you start working out, you will be able to progress quickly.
If you find that you have trouble holding the egg while you walk, simply start by sitting down while it's inside you a few times a week for 10 to 15 minutes (or however long you have). Concentrate on the egg and just try to feel it by making a contraction. If you don't feel any physical movement, you can focus on the pelvic area and imagine squeezing it. This will begin to engage the part of your brain responsible for controlling these muscles. Be patient with yourself. You may become aware of these muscles for the first time in your life and it may take time and practice. Your pelvic floor may also show weakness or tension on the physical, energy and emotional levels.
Practicing Yoni egg can help you a lot! We recommend that you consult a physiotherapist specializing in perineal rehabilitation or a yoni egg instructor to guide you through exercises that can address your specific situation.
I don't feel the egg, is that normal?
It is completely normal, it is not intended to be felt at every moment. Otherwise it would be too distracting to wear it. Yoni's egg is there to help you become aware of the inner workings of your vagina and G spot. By simply wearing it, you can increase sensitivity and gain more control. You will notice that engaging your Yoni muscles or being in certain body positions allows you to feel the egg more.
Instead of vibrators that dull your senses over time and force you to be more and more stimulated, ben wa balls or yoni egg help you become more sensitive. Simply give your egg a "hug" by making a contraction and you will notice its delicate presence.
Do you advise to do vaginal weightlifting?
Vaginal weightlifting consists of hanging a weight at the end of the string attached to your Yoni egg in order to train you to hold the egg. It's a bit like CrossFit - some people swear by it, but if you've never done it before in your life, it can be traumatic!
Vaginal weightlifting exercises are an ancient practice and can be very powerful! Women who choose this practice have usually been using the yoni egg for at least two years, know their bodies very well, and feel a natural desire to add weight as a result of their regular practice. Otherwise, this type of practice can put you at risk of damaging the nerve wiring and muscles of your pelvic floor.
Yoni's egg is a female practice, it is a process and not a goal. The motivation behind the desire to be "better, faster, stronger" and to be able to lift excessive amounts of weight with your vagina can sometimes be motivated by the feeling that you have to compete with others, which is masculine in nature. Remember that you are already enough and that you choose to enjoy the process. Advanced yoni egg exercises can and should be done under the guidance of a pelvic organ specialist or yoni egg instructor.
How to expel the egg?
Yoni's egg can come out on its own during or after your workout or when you get up in the morning after wearing it overnight. Just know that your yoni was ready to let it out and relax.
If you wish to let it out voluntarily, you can sit on the edge of a chair or squat in a squat position with your hand ready to catch the egg. Relax as you do when you go to the bathroom (Note that the egg may inadvertently come out when you relax your bladder or bowels, so be ready to catch it!).
If you are carrying a pierced egg with a string, you can gently pull the string while pushing. Don't push with force, but slowly and in rhythm with your breath, avoid creating unpleasant sensations.
The egg is blocked, what should I do?
First of all, don't lose your temper! Don't worry, the egg can't travel very far, it will never pass the cervix at the bottom of the vagina.
Relax, trust the process and use this as an opportunity to get to know your body better and allow the crystal to do its healing work. This is a great time to meditate, listen to your thoughts and emotions.
To make it easier to expel the egg, add a little lubricant such as coconut oil or your favorite lubricant. Breathe deeply and relax. Squat down in a squat or sit on the toilet, but be prepared to grab the egg if you are not wearing underwear to hold it. You can help the egg to come out by putting your finger on it. Be gentle, don't push too hard and avoid creating uncomfortable sensations.
Vaginal muscles tend to contract unconsciously under stress. So, if you are relaxed, it will help the egg to come out quickly. Keep in mind that it won't hurt you if the egg stays inside for 24 hours. Some couples even use it safely during intercourse to increase the pleasure of both partners.
Keep practicing and soon you will know how to expel it on command!
If you don't feel comfortable with the unperforated egg because you would like to be able to remove it on command, you can buy a perforated egg into which you can insert a string. Perforated eggs can also be used without the string.
Never use the egg in your rectum - unlike the vagina, it can get stuck there and you'll be in trouble.
What to do if the egg falls down the toilet?
All day long, try to remember this when you go to the bathroom. The egg may inadvertently come out when you relieve your bladder or bowels, so be prepared to catch it!
However, if you forgot it and it fell down the toilet, don't embarrass yourself, it happened to the best of us!
Inspect the egg for cracks. If it is intact, you can continue to use it after washing and sterilizing it.
Who shouldn't train with a Yoni egg?
Do not use a Yoni egg during your pregnancy. You don't want to upset the uterus during pregnancy, or release energies from old traumas or stimulate tissue that could create contractions and jeopardize your pregnancy. If you have already developed an effective yoni egg practice and practiced it regularly for 6 months before conception, you may be an exception. Nevertheless, in these cases we only recommend very passive exercises, yoni yoga, and we recommend that you consult your midwife or health care team. Yoni egg is a wonderful practice to adopt after childbirth. We suggest that you consult your health care professional to find out if it is safe for you to do so. Talk to your midwife or perineal rehabilitation physiotherapist.
Please do not use a Yoni egg if you have an intrauterine device (IUD). The movement of the egg can hit the IUD and push it into place. The yoni egg string can also get tangled with the IUD threads. Using a yoni egg with an IUD can reduce its effectiveness as a contraceptive device.
For women with any type of internal infection (inflammation of the cervix, uterus or ovary), or fever, it is advised not to practice with a Yoni egg until the symptoms disappear. Women should also not practice if open sores or blisters are present.
Please do not use a Yoni egg if you have a prolapse of the bladder, vagina or rectum. Although it is not explicitly dangerous to your health, we recommend that you do not do so.
We do not recommend using your Yoni egg during your period. It is best to give your uterus space to release the monthly blood without adding extra stimulus.
If you have a pre-existing health problem not mentioned here, particularly one that affects your pelvic floor and pelvic organs, please seek advice from your doctor before starting the Yoni egg.
Should I use Yoni's egg while I am menstruating?
We do not recommend using your Yoni egg during your period. It is better to give your uterus space to release the monthly blood without adding extra stimulus.
That being said, there is no particular health problem in carrying your Yoni egg during your period. This is a decision you have to make on your own - trust your intuition. If you feel comfortable using it during this time, go for it! Be sure to clean your egg thoroughly before and after each use, as you are more susceptible to infections during this time of the month. Don't wear it longer than a tampon to allow blood to flow out of the body regularly.
My stone is cracked or has started to crumble. Can I still use it?
The internal cracks you see in the stone are normal. If, however, the egg begins to flake, crumble, or has external cracks (the cracks you can feel with your finger), then the integrity of the stone is compromised (this can happen if the crystal has fallen on a hard surface). In this case, please stop using the egg immediately.
Please also note that we do not treat our crystals with resins, and due to the nature of the crystal, most stones have small indentations on their surface. Surface indentations and scratches are acceptable if they do not have sharp edges. Simply run your finger over them to check that nothing is abrasive or sharp.
Yoni egg and pre-existing conditions
Please do not use a Yoni egg if you have a prolapse of the bladder, vagina or rectum. While Yoni egg practices can help prevent these conditions, we do not recommend using them if your organs are already prolapsed.
Consult a pelvic specialist, an osteopath specializing in these types of problems or a physiotherapist for manual treatment and training of the specific muscles and ligaments to be treated to cure these conditions.
Do not use a Yoni egg if you have an infection of your pelvic organs. The infection must be treated and healed before starting the practice.
If you have a pre-existing health problem not mentioned here, especially one that affects your floor and pelvic organs, please ask your doctor for advice before starting the Yoni egg practice. A medical opinion will allow you to begin your practice with peace of mind.
