Frequently asked questions

 "HOW DO I USE A JADE YONI EGG?"

Using an egg is simple, easy, and effective. Your instructions for care and basic exercises arrive with your jade egg. We have an ebook available with more advanced exercises that you can sign up for with your email once you purchase your egg.

 

"CAN THE JADE EGG GET LOST?"

No, it is not possible for the jade egg to get lost. You may use unwaxed cotton thread to help to pull the egg out once you are finished with your practice.

 

"I HAVE TROUBLE WITH INCONTINENCE, WILL THE JADE EGG HELP?"

Urinary incontinence is very common, especially after childbirth and as we age. Incontinence can be linked to having weak pelvic floor muscles, also known as the PC muscles. A regular jade egg practice strengthens and tones these muscles, and the jade egg itself adds weight and resistance to the exercises making them much more effective than Kegels alone, thus helping support the bladder. We recommend seeking a skilled physical therapist or consulting your doctor before starting any practice. Some incontinence issues are linked to tension in the PC muscles, this is called stress incontinence. We do not recommend doing toning exercises when stress incontinence is the cause, instead focus on release and relaxation.

 

"HOW DOES THE JADE EGG HELP ME HAVE BETTER ORGASMS?"

Toning your PC muscles is one of the many benefits of a regular jade egg practice. Having a supple, resilient, and toned pelvic floor is one of the most important factors in being able to orgasm. The jade egg also helps increases circulation and blood flow, which plays a large role in arousal. Using a jade yoni egg will also help awaken sensation inside the vagina, and stimulate the nerve endings to be more receptive to subtle contact. Many of our customers have let us know that soon after using the egg they experienced their first vaginal orgasm. We suggest that with a regular gentle practice (2 - 3 times a week) you will become more connected to yourself, your vagina, and your own sensuality. 

 

"HOW DO I KNOW IF THE JADE EGG IS WORKING?"

The jade egg works on multiple levels. If you are following the instructions for the basic exercises we sent with the egg then you can be sure it is working in its own unique way for your body.

The jade egg also stimulates blood flow to your pelvic region, which increases your sensitivity and arousal. Usually, within a few weeks, you will notice a difference, whether this means you are not peeing as much when you sneeze, or your orgasms have reached a new level, or you are feeling more embodied and comfortable in your body. The jade egg practice will benefit each woman differently in the way her body needs it most. 

 

"WHAT IF I CAN'T FEEL THE EGG WHEN I USE IT?"

This is very common, especially for women who have given birth vaginally. Sensations will gently increase with practice and over time, sometimes within the first few weeks of practice.

 

"SHOULD I USE THE EGG DURING MY PERIOD?"

No. Also avoid using the egg if you have any vaginal infection.

 

"WILL I EXPERIENCE PAIN WHILE I USE THE EGG?"

There should be no pain when you use the jade egg. If you do feel pain stop using the egg immediately. Make sure when you use the egg you are well lubricated, and that you are not forcing the egg inside of you. It should be a very gentle process of inserting your egg into your vagina, making sure she is ready and you are focused. 

 

"WHO IS THE JADE EGG FOR?"

For everyone who has a vagina. We honestly believe that at every stage of life women can benefit from a regular yoni egg practice. Read below to find out what the benefits may be for you.

 

"I HAVEN'T HAD KIDS, WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF THE JADE EGG FOR ME?"

The jade egg is a tool to connect you with your vagina, your sensual self, and your ability to experience pleasure. It helps keep your pelvic floor toned and resilient, which is important during all phases of life.  The jade egg increases blood flow to the pelvic region, which awakens sensations throughout the vagina. The egg also stimulates the g-spot and the cervix through contact, which increases sensitivity and usually can contribute to you being able to experience different types of vaginal orgasms and more intense sensations.

 

"I JUST HAD A BABY. HOW WILL THE JADE EGG HELP ME?"

Using a jade egg postpartum, or if you have children of any age, is an effective tool to strengthen and tone your pelvic floor. Your PC muscles hold all of your reproductive organs and your bladder in the right place. Common issues such as urinary incontinence, uterine prolapse, lack of sensation after childbirth (even if you have had a cesarean), and general lack of connectedness to your sensual-self are all common concerns for postpartum mothers. A regular jade egg practice may help decrease the severity of many of these common issues.

Staying connected to your sensuality as a mother can also be a major challenge; feeling run down, overwhelmed, and exhausted are all common. Using the jade egg as a way to connect with your own body is a nourishing way to take care of yourself amidst the chaos that is motherhood. Trust us, we are in the same boat as you!

 

"I'VE ALREADY GONE THROUGH MENOPAUSE, HOW WILL THE JADE EGG HELP ME?"

 A yoni egg is very useful to support women during their menopausal and post-menopausal years. Using a yoni egg regularly will help increase natural lubrication, decrease sensativity in thinning vaginal walls, increase the tone and strength of the pelvic floor muscles, and it can help address common issues such as urinary incontinence and uterine prolapse. 

 

"WHY USE JADE?"

-  Nephrite jade is the most hygienic stone you can use for this practice. Nephrite jade is a highly dense and non-porous stone, meaning there is less surface area for bacteria to grow. We have our eggs made from the highest quality untreated nephrite jade mined in Canada, making sure your experience working with a yoni egg is as safe and clean as possible.

It is important when choosing your egg you make sure it is untreated, without dyes, and that it is certified. Most of the jade eggs on the market are not actual jade but dyed and treated versions of other types of stones. Pure jade itself is expensive, and pure nephrite jade is much more expensive than the many imitation stones on the market. 

We also enjoy working with jade because it is the traditional stone used in the jade egg practice that originated in China. Jade is known to have many beneficial properties for women's health.  

 

"WHY DO TULIP EGGS COST MORE THAN OTHER JADE EGGS?"

The Tulip jade eggs are made specifically for us from the highest quality jade available. The jade is ethically mined, the environment is undamaged from the mining process and the workers are paid fair wages. The cost of jade from Canada is more than the cost of jade from China (the majority of eggs on the market come from China) where wages and quality are often not up to standard. We also have taken great care to package with eco-friendly materials.
