Yoni Egg Practice: How to Use a Yoni Egg

Yoni Egg Practice: How to Use a Yoni Egg

Once you have a Yoni Egg you may wonder how you should use it. Your Yoni Egg practice is individual and will vary from person to person but here are a few suggestions to get you started;

Yoni Egg Exercises for Beginners

If you haven't used a yoni egg in the past or don't do regular pelvic floor exercises, it is recommended you start slow. The egg will act a weight in the vagina so it is recommended you only wear your egg for 5 minutes when starting out and gradually build up to doing pelvic floor exercises whilst wearing your egg.

Many health experts and physiotherapists warn against wearing an egg for too long as this can fatigue the pelvic floor muscle which needs time to rest so it is generally recommended you keep your yoni egg practice to under 20 minutes. 

Wear it at Night

A gentle way to start incorporating regular use of your yoni egg is to sleep with it inserted every other night. 

Kegel Exercises


Kegel exercises are used to strengthen the pelvic floor muscles. These can be performed sitting, standing or lying down while wearing a yoni egg.

To perform Kegel exercises;

  1. Contract your pelvic floor muscles as if to stop urine flow. You should feel some pressure around your egg when isolating these muscles. 
  2. Clench for 10 seconds then release for 10 seconds
  3. Do this for a few minutes if you are new to using yoni eggs and gradually build up to 15 minutes as your pelvic floor muscle tone improves

Vaginal wall exercise

If you have good control of your vaginal wall muscles, you may be able to contract the muscles of the vaginal wall at different stages; working from the entrance of the vagina, towards the middle of the vagina and higher towards the cervix and then back down without dropping the egg. This will squeeze the stone up and down the vaginal canal as the muscles contract in different areas. 

Another exercise is to practice "birthing" the stone by contacting the top of the vaginal wall towards the bottom. 

Bodyweight exercises

As you become more experienced in your yoni egg practice, you may like to perform yoga or other low-impact bodyweight exercises such as a plank, bridge or squats while your egg is inserted.  

Meditation

You don't have to perform exercises while wearing a yoni egg. Many people choose to simply sit or lie with their stone inserted while they meditate; felling where it is in your body while you focus on its energy.
