YES, YES, YES. Pelvic floor training is a powerful tool to cure symptoms from stress incontinence, urge incontinence, nocturnal incontinence, and mixed incontinence.
Note! Getting a diagnosis with a health practitioner to determine the root cause of your incontinence symptoms will help you maximize the chances of using the most effective treatment for you.
NO. For ethical reasons, Perifit has not been tested on pregnant women, and therefore the impact of using a connected Kegel trainer during pregnancy is not known.
As a result, we recommend that you do your Kegel exercises manually throughout your pregnancy, and return to Perifit after you have recovered from childbirth.
DEPENDS ... After childbirth is a great time to get into a regular pelvic floor exercise routine.
However, we highly recommend that you wait for approval from your health professional before using Perifit after childbirth.
This will usually be at your six-week check-up, which is the average delay before pelvic floor healing.
YES. Your pelvic floor has held more than 11 pounds (5 kilograms) during the whole pregnancy.
No matter the delivery type, you need to make sure that you get your pelvic floor checked post-pregnancy by a medical specialist.
Yes! After childbirth is a great time to get into a regular pelvic floor exercise routine.
However, we highly recommend that you wait for approval from your health professional before using Perifit after childbirth.

Pelvic floor muscle training has been shown to help slow down or reduce prolapse symptoms, especially in early stage of pelvic organ prolapse.
Read more information here about why using Perifit can help with prolapse symptoms and even stop a prolapse from worsening.
Absolutely! We have designed the programs "Prevent disorders" and "Intimate wellbeing" which are made for that purpose.
Learn more here about these programs and why training your pelvic floor even if you are not suffering from a pelvic floor disorder is good.
Short answer: yes!
One of the main functions of the pelvic floor is to aid in sexual response. When the pelvic floor is strong and agile, it can perform well-timed contractions to stimulate the clitoris during penetration.
Your ability to contract your pelvic floor is as important as your ability to relax it. Perifit helps you reach a healthy state of your pelvic floor thanks to the relaxation phases during the games in each training program.
However, if your pelvic floor needs are focused solely on relaxation (people with overactive pelvic floor or muscle spasms for example), Perifit will not be the best product for you. We advise reaching out to a specialist to get advise on relaxation-focused techniques.
We invite you to refer to this page for further explanation.
NO. As of today, even though we are very much aware of pelvic floor disorders such as vaginismus, dyspareunia, or vulvodynia, our product is not the best solution to treat these.
If the size of the Perifit doesn't create discomfort, and with a heavy focus on relaxation during the Kegels, it won't do harm.
However, if the Kegels are centered around contraction with too little attention to fully letting go after the contraction, it may result in further tightening of the pelvic area.
YES, BUT ... After a hysterectomy, it's essential to ensure that the internal organs are supported, your bladder and bowel function correctly, and that the risk of having a prolapse is minimized.
However, you should first get your surgeon's approval. For most women, this is approximately 4-6 weeks after the hysterectomy. But this may vary from one woman to the next according to the surgical procedure and overall hysterectomy recovery.
PROBABLY... Research has shown that "Pelvic floor muscles training may improve some vaginal atrophy symptoms and signs in women taking local eostrogen therapy".
This is a consequence of the fact that Kegel training increases the blood flow to the vagina, thus helping to keep the tissue healthy and encouraging lubrication.
IN SOME CASES... Pelvic floor training can be useful for treating some types of recurrent UTIs. Discuss with your health practitioner to find out whether it can help with yours.
In addition to washing the Perifit and your hands before each use, we recommend that you also clean the skin around the anus and the genital area. This will lower the risk of triggering a UTI when using Perifit.
YES. The main group of muscles trained with Kegel exercises is called the levator ani. It is responsible for "closing" the urethra, the vagina, and the rectum and it is controlled by a single innervation.
So, when all three areas are functional (as could be checked by your physiotherapist), training one will train the two others. Thus, although Perifit gets its squeezing information from the vagina, it is actually measuring the contractions of the levator ani and thus training all three areas.
YES. When you move in an unusual way (i.e. during a yoga pose) or when your partner thrusts during sex, air is pumped into the vagina. The rapid expulsion of this air produces a "fart-like" sound.
In a way, we could laugh it off; however, if this occurs frequently, it may be a warning sign that the tone of your pelvic floor muscles is weak.
Strengthening one's pelvic floor with Perifit is the best way to recover muscle tone and minimize any "looseness" in the vagina.
NO. Unfortunately, Perifit doesn't have an effect on endometriosis or reduce the pain associated with endometriosis.
Whether or not you wish to use Perifit on your period is entirely up to you. There is no reason not to, and many users find they want to.
Additionally, it's worth noting that throughout your cycle, your scores may vary. It's nothing to worry about, though, as this is just a natural fluctuation in your strength as part of your monthly cycle.
Yes, you can use Perifit with an IUD (or coil). Our Kegel trainer is covered by a sleeve of medical grade silicone which prevents any contact with internal parts, so entirely safe to use with a coil/IUD.
YES. Perifit communicates with your device using Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE). BLE waves are 1000 times less powerful than those emitted by a regular 4G smartphone. As of today, BLE is even used in pacemakers and other implanted devices.
However, as a precaution, we recommend that, just like your smartphone, you keep Perifit at least 15cm away from your implanted device.
Perifit is made of medical grade silicon. It is BPA free, Phthalates free and EA free.
You don't have to. The Perifit device is not chargeable. The battery allows for 5+ years of training.
If it runs out before 5 years, we will send you the latest Perifit for free and recycle the old one. If it runs out after 5 years, we'll offer you the latest Perifit for just $50 or €45.
The part of the device that is meant to be inserted is 3.1 inches / 8.3 cm long, and the diameter is up to 0.8 inches / 3.1 cm.
The part of the device that is meant to be inserted is 3.27 inches / 8.3 cm long, and the diameter is up to 1.22 inches / 3.1 cm.
At the moment, we do not offer different sizes.

Perifit can detect pelvic floor contraction as weak as 0.35 oz / 10 g.
No, Perifit is a medical device. It was designed to be the best solution to stop unwanted leaks, reduce prolapse, and provide stronger orgasms.
No. Perifit is a biofeedback device and contains no electro-stimulation. You are the one contracting voluntarily your pelvic floor. Biofeedback allows you to visualize your contractions to make sure they are of good form and access a more effective training.
Note that people with a traumatized pelvic floor (very weak) can require electro-stimulation prior to voluntary moving to pelvic floor training. Reach out to your health practitioner if you require more information.
Probably! Perifit is a biofeedback device similar to the ones used by many midwives, physiotherapists, and health professionals. The plus it offers is that you can train at home while having fun.
Note: it is not a substitute for a complete diagnosis or follow-up by a health professional.
Perifit uses patented biofeedback technology which monitors your progress in real-time. With the Perifit App, you will be able to track your progress and see your results. To learn more about how and why Perifit is effective, please refer to this page.
