Many women use yoni eggs to strengthen their pelvic floor and improve sexual health. These small, smooth stones are inserted into the vagina and left there for an extended period. Some women recommend sleeping with a yoni egg in, while others leave them inserted throughout the day. However, there is no scientific evidence of the effectiveness of these products and a lot of discussion about their dangers.


1. History

Proponents of yoni eggs claim that the practice is an ancient Chinese custom. Some websites state that concubines and queens used yoni eggs, and advocate for their ability to restore energy, balance hormones, and tone pelvic floor muscles. Some recommend charging a yoni egg by the light of the full moon if it loses its energy.
