What is the age range to use MyElle™?

The MyElle™ can be beneficial for women of all ages.

I am starting menopause. How can MyElle™ help me?

It is an excellent choice for women in their 40s, 50s, or 60s who are beginning or are currently experiencing the effects of menopause. Women who are aging, have decreased estrogen, which can lead to thinning and drying of vaginal tissue, as well as an increase in inflammation. The MyElle™ wand can encourage tissue repair, promote tightening, and increase lubrication to make sex more enjoyable. Red light technology has also been shown to increase fibroblast production, which can produce collagen and protect existing collagen. This process assists with skin elasticity.

After having children, how can MyElle™ help me?

MyElle™ is a great choice for mothers. The trauma of childbirth can stretch and cause damage to the vaginal walls and surrounding tissues. MyElle's™ unique technology can assist with vaginal elasticity and tightness, by improving collagen formation, similar to the way it assists with menopause symptoms.

What is the pelvic floor, and why do I need to strengthen it?

Your pelvic floor is a fundamental group of muscles and connective tissues that stretch across the bottom of your pelvis, like a taut and flexible trampoline. The pelvic floor is anchored in the front at the pubic bone, wraps around the vagina and rectal openings, and attaches at the base of the spine. It is vital to maintain the health of your pelvic floor because it supports the proper function of many other essential body processes such as:

• Supportive role holding up the bladder, uterus, and rectum

• Enhancing and maintaining sexual function and pleasure

• Maintaining control of bowel and bladder continence

• Providing lower back support by working with abdominals stabilizing the core

What problems can arise when my pelvic floor doesn't function properly?

• Urinary frequency or urgency This could be the sign of an overactive bladder. An overactive bladder occurs when the muscular fibers of the bladder contract too frequently or at random. A strong pelvic floor can provide a reflex "quieting" of the bladder's irritable contractility, reducing urgency.

• Stress urinary incontinence (SUI) Stress incontinence is the involuntary loss of urine due to any physical activity that puts a strain on the bladder, for example, laughing, coughing, sneezing, or exercise. This occurs when the pelvic muscles supporting the bladder and urethra have been damaged or weakened, typically during childbirth.

• Back pain, pelvic pain, pain with intercourse, or with orgasm This often occurs when our pelvic floor muscles are weakened or damaged.

• Vaginitis and atrophic vaginitis (vaginal dryness) is inflammation of the vagina that can result in discharge, itching, and pain. Vaginal dryness is most common near menopause when hormone levels change, resulting in the vaginal walls becoming thinner and inflamed. This also causes decreased lubrication.

• Uterine or vaginal prolapse Damage to the pelvic floor during childbirth causes pelvic organs to sag or protrude into the vagina, and occasionally beyond the vaginal opening. This can also become more common as we age due to the body's decrease in estrogen, and subsequent loss of elasticity and strength.

How can MyElle™ help tone and tighten my pelvic floor?

Each of MyElle's™ modalities - therapeutic red and blue LED lights, and sonic vibration, contribute to the strengthening, toning, and tightening of the muscles of the pelvic floor. Check out our 'How It Works' section to learn more about the science behind MyElle's™ technology.

I struggle with regular vaginal bacterial infections (BV), can MyElle™ help?

My sex life is lacking, can MyElle™ help increase vaginal sensitivity?

MyElle™ is perfect for someone who wants to improve vaginal sensitivity, sexual desire, and enhance their sex life. Our unique design was created with you in mind. The sonic vibration setting, when coupled with our exclusive red and blue light technology, will encourage an increase in blood flow and sensory stimulation.

What type of lubrication is best when using the MyElle™ wand? Can I use coconut oil as lubrication?

We recommend using a water-based lubricant to avoid damaging the wand.

I have an IUD. Can I still use the MyElle™ Wand?

Yes, you can!

Does MyElle™ emit UV rays?

The LED lights used by the MyElle™ are not the same type of lights used in tanning beds or by the sun. It does not expose your skin to UV rays. Check out our 'How it Works' section to learn more about different forms of light.

Is it okay to look at the lights on the MyElle™ wand?

As with any light source, to avoid potential irritation, we recommend not staring directly into the lights emitted by the MyElle™ wand.

Is MyElle™ all-natural?

Yes! MyElle™ works its magic by delivering a safe, concentrated wavelength of natural light into your skin, which your cells absorb.

Are there any known side effects from using the MyElle™ wand?

There is virtually no risk of side effects from the use of the MyElle™ wand when following the recommended guidelines for usage.

Will the MyElle™ wand help to relax a tight vaginal canal?

Yes, the vaginal canal is a muscle and can become atrophied. By using the MyElle™, restoration of blood flow and inflammation reduction will encourage more flexibility and new, more flexible tissue. We recommend inserting the device as deep as is comfortable but not completely until healing has occurred incrementally.

Can the MyElle™ eliminate STIs??

The Blue Light on the MyElle™ wand can help keep the bacteria under control if used regularly. For severe cases, always consult a physician.
