Let’s Make Things a Little Easier

When it comes to finding the best set of Kegel balls for you, you should start by understanding the different styles available. Although there are some styles more suited to beginners and others to advanced users, there are no strict rules around this.

1. Kegel Balls

I’m sure you recognize this name right? Kegel balls is the term that is now used to describe Kegel exercises as a group but it is also a specific type of ball. These are a great starting point for beginners as they are generally coated with a layer of silicone that connects the balls.

As a loose rule, these are usually larger in size and less heavy than other styles too. Always check out the specific measurements and size before you buy. You can also find sets that come with different weighted balls. This means you can swap out to the heavier options as you get stronger.

2. Benwa Balls

This is another classic style and is likely what most women think of when they hear the term Kegel balls. Benwa balls are two individual balls that can be inserted separately or together and do not have anything connecting them.

They are more difficult to keep in the body as they are usually on the heavy side and made from smooth, slippery materials like stainless steel, glass or some sort of gemstone. While this makes them durable and easy to clean, I would not recommend them for beginners.

They are a great option to progress to once you have some experience under your belt. Pun absolutely intended! These bad boys are also more difficult to remove and may require some fishing around inside your body to get a good grip on them. But, they will seriously work your pelvic floor!

3. Duotone Balls

Duotone balls are basically Kegel balls with some added stimulation to make the workout a bit more exciting. They are hollow balls with smaller weighted balls inside them. These roll around and stimulate your vagina as you move.

The outer ball is typically made from silicone or plastic, while the inside ball is metal to give it more weight. Most duotone balls will be connected like Kegel balls and have a string that hangs outside of the body which makes removal nice and easy.

If you are looking for some stimulation along with your pelvic floor strengthening, then this will be your best bet. Don’t expect too much of these little babes, as although there will be some sensation, it’s not super intense.

4. Yoni Eggs

Now, I know you have heard of this one! Yoni eggs are all the rage right now and honestly, for good reason. Yoni eggs are known for not only strengthening the PC muscles and pelvic floor but also helping to heal our bodies from the inside out.

They also create a deeper connection with our bodies and our own sexual energy.

Where do I sign up? Yoni eggs are made from smooth cut crystal and are a single egg-shaped ball. This is a more natural option for women that like to really connect with their body while they exercise.

5. App-controlled Exercisers

Forming a habit is hard work, but using an app to track your progress can make the process a bit easier. Ah, technology you wonderful thing! App-controlled exercisers are exactly what they sound like.

They are a set of Kegel balls, or a single ball, that connects with an app to understand your progress as you train. These balls tend to be made from silicone and they measure the amount of pressure that your PC muscles apply to the ball when you squeeze.

These are perfect for people that need a little encouragement when it comes to exercising. Plus, they give you all sorts of amazing benefits and information that a regular Kegel ball can’t.

That’s Not All You Need to Think About

It’s not only the type of Kegel balls you use that is important. There are a bunch of other factors to consider before you buy too. While the type of Kegel ball that you want may determine some of the following for you, it’s important to still keep them in mind.

Size & Weight

Most of the complaints from females I know tend to be based around not getting it right the first time. They start out with balls that literally fall out straight away. This means that the balls are too small or too heavy.

Remember that the smaller, heavier balls are the most difficult to keep up. If you are a beginner, then look for a medium to a large ball that is nice and light. However, if you haven’t had children, then its recommended that you start with a smaller ball. Just make sure it’s not too heavy.

Material

Kegel balls come in all sorts of materials but each style tends to have specific types that they use.

Kegel balls and duotone balls will usually have a silicone outer and plastic balls, Benwa balls are made from harder materials like glass, stainless steel or gemstone, Yoni Eggs are made from crystal or gemstone and app-controlled toys will generally be made from silicone.

The most important thing is to pick a material that is body safe and non-porous.

Consider a Training Kit

If you feel that you have some real work to do down there, then a training kit may be the best option for you. These will generally come with interchangeable weights so you can build your strength and work your way up to the heavier balls.

How to Care for Your Kegel Balls

As with anything else that goes inside your body, you need to ensure that you take good care of your balls to keep them body safe.

Don’t use them without cleaning them! They can harbor bacteria if left uncleaned causing issues down the track.

Clean them before and after each use with a body safe antibacterial cleaner and warm water. They may gather dust and other floaties while they are not in use so you are better to be on the safe side.

Always Play Safe

As well as thoroughly cleaning the balls and storing them properly there are a few other things to keep in mind while they are in use. Make sure you urinate beforehand so you don’t need to worry about needing to go and accidentally dropping a ball in.

And, if you are exercising while you have them in, make sure that you don’t do anything too vigorous. Be gentle and do what feels good for your body without overdoing it.

So… Which Is Best?

Honestly, there is no real answer to this. As I stated earlier, these are a very personal product and it all comes down to what you need from your Kegel exercises. If you want feedback and help to stay on track, then the Elvie is perfect.

You want something natural with extra benefits for your bod? Try a Yoni Egg. And if you want interchangeable weights and extra stimulation while you wear them, go for duotone balls.

And, if you want a set that is easy to use, with no fuss then the Kegel exercise kit might suit you best. Of course, if you are more experienced, then the gemstone Benwa balls might be perfect, but ultimately, what your body needs is up to you.
