Have you guys seen this video floating around? It’s pretty funny, and also pretty spot on.

I’m not going to lie— after my first, it wasn’t that bad. I remember only one instance where I was doing star jumps in my living room and felt like I might pee myself a little.

But after a second baby, it’s a whole new playing field. Almost every single time I jump I find myself needing to pee. This can be incredibly problematic for someone who works out as much as I do.

Get down and give me 10 burpees! Then 20 jumping jacks!

Sorry lady, but all the kegels in the world can’t seem to make that happen for me.

It’s one of those things that we hate to talk about as women. It feels embarrassing and almost shameful— but why?

80% of us struggle with weak pelvic floor muscles after birth. HelloFlo knows that, which is why they created this hilariously accurate music video.

There’s got to be more to life than living in panty liners until you graduate to adult diapers though, right?

Right.

So, when I found out that my doctor friend started doing this new procedure called “The V-Treament” I was like:

Yep. Sign me up. I’ll take two, please!

Here’s the low down:

Have you ever seen how they use a blow dryer to heat up plastic and suction it to a gift basket?

That’s basically what happens here. The probe uses radio frequency energy to transfer heat to the vaginal region, which causes it to tighten.

If you’re afraid of being burned in the vajay by a probe, I was too. But I legitimately did not feel even the slightest bit of discomfort.

I actually forgot anything was even happening, because I was mostly just chatting about motherhood to the RN who performed the procedure. If you’re not the chatty type, you can toss in some headphones, or take a nap, or even work on your phone. Seriously, people do all sorts of things while getting the treatment done because it’s that easy going.

After my first treatment, I can honestly say I already notice a difference. I did burpees and for the first time in what feels like forever, I didn’t feel like I was going to pee my pants from it! That’s a major victory in my book.

People usually require 2-3 sessions to get optimal results, so I’ll definitely be returning and I’ll be sure to update you guys on the final results!

I’ve got no shame in my game, and you shouldn’t either. Is it embarrassing to get a treatment like this? Nope. Is it embarrassing to pee your pants on a run? Yep.
