What does a strong PC muscle look like?
What is Gynie made out of?
Gynie is made from high quality, FDA recognized, medical grade silicone. It is safe for use and easy to clean with mild soap and water. Gynie is a Class II FDA registered Medical Device.
What makes Gynie different than other kegel training devices?
Gynie has a unique, patented system for training the PC muscle. It is the only device on the market that uses eccentric and concentric movement to train your muscle. Think of it like a bi-cep curl. Both raising and lifting the weight is beneficial in building strength. Gynie also has three different levels to accommodate each individual’s starting ability and progression. This is often referred to as Kegel training, pelvic floor training, or vaginal exercise. Gynie is a Class II FDA registered Medical Device.
How do I clean my Gynie?
Gynie is made of FDA recognized, medical grade silicone. It is waterproof and cleans easily with mild soap and water.
How long before I see results?
Training with your Gynie at least 3 times a week for 3 weeks should start to yield noticeable results. When training becomes easy, be sure to move up the next level for even greater PC muscle strength!
How will I know if I'm gaining strength?
As training on one level gets easier, you know you have gained strength. It is recommended that you move up to the next level to continue building strength. Gynie has three different weight levels. Using the Gynie app will help you keep track of progress and you will see the noticeable improvement. You should see and feel signs of improved deep core strength, better support of your bladder and bowels, and an increase in sexual intensity due to greater blood flow.
Why use Gynie instead of regular kegels workouts?
Since the PC muscle is internal it is difficult to know exactly how to isolate and build it. The goal is to squeeze and draw the muscle upward, on the inside. Often women end up tightening the abdominals and the glut muscles as well or instead. This is ineffective in toning the PC muscle. Studies show that approximately 3 out of 4 women do kegels incorrectly and ineffectively. With Gynie, you can’t go wrong. Gynie was designed to specifically isolate the PC muscle and develop it, using both eccentric and concentric motion for ultimate inner strength. Gynie is the fastest way to strengthen your PC muscle.
Can I share Gynie with a friend?
No, Gynie is a personal device and should be used by one person only to keep it hygienically safe. To receive a discount code to purchase a second device (or one for your friend), email us at email@example.com.
Is Gynie safe to use during pregnancy?
Every pregnancy and woman is unique, make sure to consult your qualified medical professional before use. We recommend waiting 6 weeks after birth to resume use of your Gynie and do so slowly. Having a strong PC muscle is of very high importance during pregnancy and labour, consult with your personal ObGyn or midwife before using Gynie when pregnant. Gynie is a Class II FDA registered Medical Device.
