Johanna, a young 25 years old mother, is one of the 30 Super-Testers of the Emy Kegel trainer by Fizimed. She accepted to deliver her feedback, to encourage and help other women to regain control over their bodies. Since she started using Emy, her pelvic floor is strong again!
Transcription of Johanna’s interview:
“I was on the beach, and I said “Wow! Mom, my tampon doesn’t fall out!! Fortunately, there weren’t people who spoke my language, if so, I would have been embarrassed!”
When did you notice your pelvic floor problem?
It was around teenage, because in my family, we have pelvic floor weaknesses, and prolapse issues. I was aware of that before my pregnancy, but after my pregnancy, it was a catastrophe. I took care of the problem right away.
My midwife told me about the trainer soon after the beginning of my pelvic floor reeducation.
How would you qualify your pelvic floor problem?
Uncomfortable, every day.
Are you afraid of the situation?
Having pelvic floor problems at 25 years old is annoying. I already told myself: “if I have a prolapse at 30 years old, what will I get when I’ll be 40 or 50?”. So, it is true that it has been psychologically very difficult. Even though I assume it, I had to fix my problem. So, I found THE solution.
Why did your pelvic floor problem occur?
For me, the main reason was my pregnancy. My pelvic floor completely weakened. I couldn’t even hold a tampon. I had to solve the problem right away. On a daily basis, I don’t really have issues, only when I have to put a tampon. It has also been a struggle with my husband sometimes. But now, no more problems.
Before the Emy trainer, what other solutions were up to you?
I went to see my midwife. I did manual electrostimulation reeducation. And the result was still the same. It was still as weak as before. So, I thought I had to find another alternative. It is then that my midwife told me about Emy.
With the Emy Trainer, how long did it take for you to notice changes?
I felt improvements after only 2-3 weeks. I noticed it because I was able to hold a tampon!
What are the advantages of using the Emy trainer?
The main advantage of the device is that we can use it at home, whenever we want. We can choose the frequency too with the app. Personally, I was using it three times a week. Whenever I had 5 minutes, I knew I could do it at home as I wanted. I could relax. I didn’t have fixed appointments with any practitioner. We can do it for as long as we want. If I wanted to use it for 4 months, I would use it for 4 months. Then I could stop for 2 months and use it again for 4 months.
Emy in three words?
Great. Innovation. And thanks!
