How to choose your first Yoni Egg

A Yoni Egg is a very personal thing and we believe that every woman intuitively knows what is best for her. That being said, if it is your first introduction to Yoni Eggs you probably feel a little overwhelmed.

If after reading this you are still unsure where to start, or you are buying a Yoni Egg as a gift for someone else in your life, we suggest two options:

Here we answer the 3 main questions women have when choosing their first Yoni Egg along with our recommendations for new users.

What Size?

Yoni Eggs mainly come in 3 sizes: Large, Medium and Small.

 

Large is typically 35×50 mm, medium 30x43mm and small 25x35mm.  It might sound a little counterintuitive – when using Yoni Egg most of the time we will start our practice with a larger egg and as our dexterity grows, we will go down in size. The larger the egg the easier it is for us to feel and for the muscles to grip it. Although the larger the egg the heavier it is, so it gets harder to keep it in for long periods of time. If you cannot keep the egg in at first, do not get discouraged, it is completely normal for beginners – start practicing while laying down or sitting up.

Rule of thumb

 

Most practitioners can start with the medium size egg. It does not matter if you are a tall woman or petite – most likely with the medium egg will work best but after a month of practice you still feel like a larger egg might be better for you, then you might choose to purchase a larger one. Come back to your medium size yoni egg in 2 weeks or when you feel comfortable with the larger egg.

If you had a baby or went through menopause, or are simply not sure what size to start with, you might prefer a set of 3 different size eggs. With a set, you can start with a large egg and gradually work your way down in size, or use different sizes on different days.

 

Important – Do not practice with a Yoni Egg if you are pregnant or right after childbirth.  A Yoni egg can be a wonderful practice to start postpartum, just make sure to consult your doula, midwife or doctor before you start.

 

Small eggs are not for petite women, they are recommended for advanced practitioners who desire to experiment with different sizes of the egg, and sometimes small eggs are being used in pairs. The smaller the egg the more muscle dexterity is required to feel and to hold it inside.

 

The small egg is also a good choice for you if you already experience excessive tightness in your pelvic floor. In that case, yoni egg practice can help you, but it needs to be approached with caution. We recommend getting in touch with a pelvic care specialist or yoni egg instructor who will help create a practice designed specifically for you that addresses excessive tension in the pelvic floor. Any exercises that involve squeezing and pulling in are a no-no for you at first, the focus needs to be on relaxing.

 

Yoni egg practice helps us to get in touch with our inner guidance and build trusting relationship with our body. You can start communicating with your body even before you have the egg. Our large yoni eggs are 35×50 mm, medium is 30x43mm and small are 25x35mm. Using the ruler measure this distance between your fingers and ask your womb what size feels the best for her.

 

What Crystal?

Choosing a crystal is partially so wonderful and fun because the answer of what crystal to chose is already within you. Some people chose crystals based solely on their intuition.

Yoni Eggs are made from many varieties of beautiful and exotic gemstones. Many are safe to wear inside, but please know that not every type of crystal is safe to be worn inside the yoni, especially for prolonged periods of time.

Traditionally in Taoist teachings 3 types of stones are used. Women would start with healing Jade, then introduces Black Obsidian to work with and integrate her ‘shadow,’ and finally when she feels ready, Rose Quartz which opens the Heart. These stones have been used for thousands of years and their safety and healing benefits are time tested.

The most popular gemstone among beginners is Genuine Nephrite Jade , which we recommend starting your yoni egg practice with for the following reasons:

  • On the physical level it is a very hard non porous stone and it won’t to break if you accidentally drop it while you are learning to practice with the yoni egg.
  • It has a high thermal conductivity which means your body does not need to use a lot of energy to warm it up.
  • Nephrite is a very healing stone for the physical body and especially for the female reproductive system.
  • It’s energy is powerful while being gentle and protective. Jade shields the owner from negative outside energies. It can be worn by most women for long periods of time while nourishing, grounding and energizing her.
  • Nephrite jade is a perfect choice if your intention is to do yoni egg exercises (it has a comfortable, solid weight for kegel exercises).

With proper care it is like a diamond ring that will last a lifetime! 

Important: If you are buying a Jade egg make sure it is Nephrite and that it is certified – there are many fakes and stones made of lower quality pressed stone chip on the market.

It is our advice that you start the practice with jade – but if you feel called to work with a certain crystal or multiple crystals, by all means go for it! Even if it is your first yoni egg. It is your practice and no one will give you better advice than your own body and intuition.

Below we have included some qualities for each gemstone to help you chose.

You can play with choosing the crystal before reading anything about it’s qualities, simply based on your feelings. Afterwards read the description and see if you get an insight why you were drawn to the specific stone.

  • Nephrite Jade – Communicates with the Heart chakra. The Jade egg helps connect our heart with our passion (second chakra and yoni). Nephrite jade energetically balances the water of the body and therefore is beneficial for the health of the entire organism, and especially for the kidneys and female reproductive system. It is a very grounding, calming, balancing and protective stone that promotes self love and well being.
  • Rose Quartz – Often referred to as the Love Stone. Rose quartz corresponds strongly to the Heart chakra, it helps dissolve the barriers and blockages we have against feeling, giving and receiving the energy of love.
  • Black Obsidian –Resonates with the root chakra. Obsidian is a very protective stone and a powerful ally for releasing trauma and emotions stored in the body, especially in the pelvis. It transmutes negative energy and helps treating certain ailments of the female physical body.
  • Lilac Jadeite Jade (Jadeite and Nephrite are two distinct minerals that share the name Jade) – Resonates with Third Eye and Crown chakras and helps one to connect to spiritual knowledge and then ground these insights. This yoni egg has a very kind and gentle energy which encourages spontaneity and creativity. It is an excellent gemstone to use during meditation.

Important: Never use a crystal from a crystal shop that is not specifically sold as a Yoni Egg. Chemicals, dyes and artificial fillers are used during the manufacturing process of most decorative crystals sold on the market.

Drilled or Undrilled

Drilled Yoni Eggs have a small hole drilled through the narrow end. You may chose to put a string through it which allows for easy retrieval of the egg. Some yoni egg exercises are performed with a string. We recommend using unwaxed dental floss to string the egg. Drilled eggs can be used without a string as well.

Undrilled eggs are a little easier to clean. With the Undrilled egg you may not have an option to extract the egg as easily as you would with a string, but there is beauty in this too! The crystal will stay inside of you for as long as it needs to and will come out when it’s healing work is done. We encourage you to let go into trusting your body, trusting your intuition and trusting the process when practicing with the yoni egg. These gems are not  just kegel weights – they can assist you on your path of spiritual transformation. Letting go is one of the hardest things to do for some of us, but is as difficult as it is important and rewarding. Don’t worry, it won’t get “lost”! There is no harm in wearing it for 24 hours or longer, and you can even have intercourse while it is inside of you.

If you need to release an unstringed yoni egg, you can do it safely by following these instructions. After a few weeks of practice you will learn to push it out by command using only your vaginal muscles.

Having difficulty deciding drilled vs undrilled? Tune into yourself for a moment and imagine how would you feel using drilled egg and undrilled egg, which one are you most comfortable with?  There is no right or wrong choice to make.

      Shauna,

      Thank you for your great question. The yoni egg practice has been around for over 5000 years. In ancient China, only the Geishas and Empresses were permitted to do the practice. The yoni egg practice is extremely deep and multi-faceted. Some women do the practice for the physical benefits, such as strengthening the pelvic floor, and increasing dexterity within the yoni. Women have also reported that doing the yoni egg practice regularly has made sex more pleasurable and orgasms stronger. The yoni egg practice also has emotional facets to it. Many women have reported that using a yoni egg has helped bring old emotions to the surface to be cleansed and released. Practicing with a yoni egg helps bring awareness to what is hidden within you. Using certain types of egg (Obsidian, Jade, Rose Quartz) can amplify and illuminate different parts of you that you were not previously aware of. There is also the spiritual aspect of practicing with a yoni egg. When you wear an egg, it helps bring your conscious awareness into the body. Women have reported that when they bring their awareness into the body, they also become aware of the infinite creative potential within themselves. Women have been using yoni eggs for thousands of years to connect with their bodies and to know themselves for who they truly are.

      The correct way to wear the egg is with the larger end of the egg closer to your cervix. You insert the larger end in first.

    Reply
    • Shoshana

      Hi Korynna,

      Some women have reported that the yoni egg does help balance the yoni area overtime. In chinese medicine odor, imbalance and recurring infections are a signs of stagnant energy in the body. Yoni egg practice could help move stagnant energy, so it makes sense that some women experience resolution of these imbalances with practice.

      We do offer a different product however, that is made specifically for this purpose. It is a potent herbal stick called the Secret Ceres, and it is amazing for eliminating the odor. Some women even report that it helps with yeast infections and bv. You can find it on our website here: https://yoniegg.com/product/secret-ceres/

      Another product that can be helpful and works a bit gentler is Yoni Nectar Oil – it is a blend of healing herbs and it’s scent is completely divine!

    I am interested in purchasing my first yoni egg. The lilac jadeite jade or the nephrite jade both interest me. The Lilac seems to call to me and the description sounds good for me to but I know you recommend the nephrite and the description also sounds good for me. I do not have the financial mean to purchase both right now, but I’m not sure what yoni egg to go with. Any suggestions or insite?

      Hi Michele,

      Thank you for your message. We do suggest you start with a nephrite jade egg for your first egg. Nephrite jade is the stone that was traditionally used by the Empresses and Geishas when they did the yoni egg practice. The nephrite jade is powerful yet gentle and balancing, and is the perfect place to start. That is what I would suggest for you!

    How long should I keep a yoni egg in?

    Reply
    • Shoshana

      Hi Latisha,

      Think about yoni egg practice as a yoga for your yoni.
      The practice consists of a series of exercises and body awareness techniques.
      In the beginning you can start with a few minutes of focused time performing specific exercises and practices. You’d want to start slow and build you practice overtime.
      Once you are done with the focused practice, you can choose to expel the egg or leave the egg inside and go about your day. We do not recommend to leave an egg inside for more than 4-8 hrs at a time.
      Some women choose to sleep with the egg. In this case again, make sure you don’t keep the egg inside for too long.

        Hi Charity,

        We recommend you energetically cleanse your yoni egg by leaving it overnight in a bowl of salt or salt water. You can also leave it overnight under the moonlight, or out all day in the sunshine. It is also important to wash your egg before and after each use with organic, unscented soap and warm water, allowing the egg to air dry. If your egg is drilled, please pay extra attention to washing inside the drill holes to make sure that no fluid is stuck. Please do not hesitate to let me know if you have any other questions.

          Yes you may wear the egg during sexual intercourse as long as it feels comfortable to you. It is important to note that you will receive the most sexual pleasure and benefit from the yoni egg by practicing with it regularly while you are not having intercourse. You do this through the kegel exercises which are done when you are not having sex. Many women have reported to us that building up dexterity through the kegel exercises make their orgasms more intense, and sex more pleasurable.

    Can the yoni egg fall out when I go urine, does it need to be taken out before?

    Reply

      Hi Kaffi,

      Thank you for your question. Similar to a tampon, the egg does not need to be removed before urinating. The egg would usually stay in while you urinate, but sometimes it falls out. It depends on woman’s individual anatomy as well.
      Most importantly make sure that you are emptying your bladder fully and not clenching the muscles trying to hold the egg in.
      You can keep the egg in, just be ready to catch it with your hand, or if your egg is stringed you can hold on to the string.

Jade is the stone that was traditionally used by the Taoist practitioners, and medium is the size that most women need for a lifelong yoni egg practice. Please let me know if you need support choosing an egg!

      Some women prefer the drilled yoni eggs, because you can use a piece of unwaxed, unscented dental floss with it for easy removal. Removing an undrilled egg is a little bit more difficult, but not incredibly so. To remove an undrilled yoni egg, you would simply relax, squat if you would like, and give the egg a light push with the muscles – and it should come right out. Most women report to us that it is relatively easy to remove their egg without the string. If having a string for an easy removal makes you more comfortable, I’d certainly go with that! Drilled eggs can be used without a string as well.

    Hi, I am 23 and am struggling to find which size yoni egg is best for me. I have tried using the medium size egg and wearing it around the house doing my daily activities whilst practising my kegels but as soon as I start doing my kegels the egg falls out. However I have tried the smallest egg and this stays in fine and allows me to do my kegels without falling out. However I know the smallest one isn’t as heavy so I feel that I’m not working my muscles aswell as I could be with the smallest egg. Could you please advise ?

    Reply
    • Shoshana

      Hi Florence,

      Most women need the medium sized egg, which is approximately 30x43mm. The experts in the field, those with PhDs in Jade Egg state that a medium sized jade egg is really the only egg most women will need for a lifelong yoni egg practice. Some women feel the need to start with a large egg if they are having trouble keeping the medium sized egg in. Once they have built up dexterity, they move down to the medium egg. The small egg is more advanced. If the medium egg is falling out, I would suggest trying a large egg, and this way you can experiment with all the different sizes and see what works best for you.

      Hi Gloria,

      Thank you for your question. The reason that we do not recommend women with IUDs use a yoni egg is because there is a small chance the IUD could be rendered ineffective by the yoni egg. That said, I know many women who have both an IUD and a successful yoni egg practice with no issues. I am not able to give medical advice, so please check with your doctor, douala or pelvic specialist before using a yoni egg.

      We recommend the medium sized eggs for most everyoe. These eggs are approximately 30x43mm. If you have given birth vaginally recently or feel you may not be able to keep the medium sized egg in, you might want to start with the large, then move down to the medium size once you have built up your dexterity. The size small is more advanced. Let me know if you have any other questions!

      Hi Anna,

      These are great questions! Our medium sized egg is approximately 30x43mm. This is the best size for most women for an ongoing yoni egg practice, unless you have recently given birth vaginally, in which case I would recommend the large size. The experts in the field, those with PhDs in Jade Egg, believe that this size (our medium) is ideal for a lifelong practice. That said, if you feel this size may be too large for you, you could start with a small egg. The small egg is approximately 25X35. This egg is for more advanced practice, and women tend to move from the medium egg down to the small once they have built up dexterity. It sounds like the large egg is probably not the best for you, so if you wanted, I could make you a custom set with two medium eggs and one small, or two small eggs and one medium. Let me know what you think!

    I have a very tight vagina because of stitches after labour and tried the small and large sizes. I had difficulty removing both sizes, especially, surprisingly, the largest. Having read through these messages though I realise I had inserted them the wrong way up! Do the eggs always expel themselves when they are ready, as I feel they would have stayed there forever!

    Reply
    • Shoshana

      Hi Caroline,

      Thank you for your question! It makes sense that the large egg is a bit more difficult to remove if you are especially tight. The large egg takes up more space in the vaginal canal, so if you are tighter, there is less room to remove the egg.
      The eggs do not generally expel themselves, even the smaller sizes. Usually, when you are feeling complete in your practice for the moment, you would relax, squat, and give the egg a light push with your pelvic muscles to expel the egg.

      Drilled eggs come with drill holes that you can attach a piece of unwaxed, unscented dental floss to for easy removal – you can simply pull gently on the string, and the egg will come right out.
      Since it sounds like you already have a set of undrilled eggs and can push them out, so you can just keep using those.

      Sounds like the medium size might be the best size for you, but keep experimenting with different sizes! Since you are already feeling tight, during the practice the focus needs to be on relaxation rather than contraction, or at least equal parts. Also being extra gentle with the scar tissue around the stitches, once it is healed gentle massage with healing oils could be of benefit.

      Thank You,

      Thank you for your question! Women have reported to us that doing a regular yoni egg practice with all of the different types of the eggs has helped them re-connect with their body, and experience stronger and more pleasurable orgasms. Any of the stones can help you accomplish this, but I would recommend a jade egg, as this is what was traditionally used by the Geishas and Empresses in ancient China when they did the yoni egg practice. If you are only going to get one egg, I would definitely say get the jade!

    Hello,

    I have recently lost my sexual libido which is having an effect on my relationship, I feel like I have a negative association towards sex but not too sure why. Could a yoni egg help with this? I have a mild case of endometriosis which often makes sex quite painful in my lower abdomen, ovary area (this could be why my sex drive has decreased) could it help with that or will it aggravate it and be painful? I also have a coil will that affect it?

    Many thanks

      Hi Ann,

      Thank you for your questions!

      Loss of libido and pain can have many causes. As you pointed out, most likely pain and loss of libido are connected, since body would try to avoid sex if it is a painful experience. Pain and loss of libido are also the ways our body signals for our attention.

      You also mentioned that you have negative association towards sex and not sure why. Often trauma, unprocessed emotion and even negative conditioning can get “stuck” in our bodies and cause numbness, pain and disconnection.

      Yoni egg can be a wonderful tool to reconnect to our bodies and gently release this stuck energy. Doing this practice can also help you get insights on what can be a cause behind your experience.

      In your case I would emphasize using it as a tool for self exploration and connection to the body, yoni, ovaries and the womb. Slowing way down, consciously relaxing, and breathing into the areas of tightness and discomfort is the key – then listening to what the body communicates and taking it from there.

      Many women report increased libido as a result of yoni egg practice.

      Finding a good coach or a pelvic specialist can also be of great value. Sometimes all it takes is a session or two for a big shift to occur.

      We caution against using yoni egg with an IUD. This is because there are no studies that have been done on interactions of yoni egg and IUD. However it does not seem likely that yoni egg will create any adverse effects and many women report back that they get green light from their doctors when they ask this question. That being said, use yoni egg with an IUD at your own discretion and always consult medical practitioner first.
      If using a yoni egg with an IUD one should not use a string with the egg or attempt vaginal weightlifting.

      Hi Resh,

      Thank you for reaching out. We recommend that you check with your doctor before using a yoni egg. The reason for this is because for some prolapses, the exercises done with a yoni egg can help re-build strength, but in other cases, depending on the individual situation, the exercises done with a yoni egg could actually injure you further. It’s like when you injure a part of your body by breaking a bone or pulling a muscle. When you go to physical therapy, they give you specific exercises to do that will help you in your unique situation to heal. Not all exercises will help, and in fact, some exercises could actually cause more damage. The same is true for using a yoni egg. While there is a big possibility that a yoni egg practice could really help you, it’s important to make sure that the practice is right for you and your body’s needs. Please check with your doctor about your prolapse and whether or not using a yoni egg would be therapeutic for you. You can let them know that you would be using a stone egg that is approximately 30x43mm to do kegel exercises.

      Let me know if there are any other questions I can help with.

      Kind Regards,

      Shoshana

    Hi there,

    I stumbled across Yoni eggs about 6 months ago and have been drawn to the idea. I have been feeling a sense of repression due to certain stresses in my life lately and feel that a Yoni egg would help me deal with my emotional blockages. I collect crystals and have always been inclined to rose quartz as it speaks to my sensuality. However, I am a male and was planning to use a Yoni rectally. Would this be safe and what size would you recommend?

    Thanks 🙂

      Hi Damien,

      Thank you for your message. That is awesome that you are feeling drawn to yoni eggs but unfortunately it is not at all safe to use the eggs rectally. Please DO NOT use the yoni eggs rectally. This is unsafe because the yoni eggs can easily be lost inside the rectum, which would require surgery to remove. Yoni eggs are not approved for use anally. If you would like to purchase a yoni to use strictly for meditation, holding it in your hand, that is a great option for you, but please do not use the yoni egg rectally.

      Thank You,

      Shoshana

      Hi Love,

      Thank you for your question. Did you use your yoni egg regularly, as on ongoing practice, or just a couple of times? Many women have reported to us that doing an ongoing yoni egg practice has helped them experience deeper pleasure and less pain during sex. I would say that jade is the correct stone for you to be using, but that perhaps you need to be doing your practices more regularly. Do you feel you may have some old energies or traumas that are affecting your experience during sex? If so, you may want to try an obsidian egg, which is known for bringing old energies to the surface to be cleansed and released. I would say that no matter what stone you are using, a more regular practice is what will most likely help. Practicing every single day can make a huge difference! If you feel the pain you are experiencing may be more than just pain from deep sex, I would suggest speaking with your doctor about it. If you purchased your jade egg from us, please make sure to check out our detailed user guide, it is full of exercises ranging from beginner to more advanced.

    Can you dance with your yoni egg inserted as a mediation practice?

      Lacey,

      Yes! You can absolutely dance with your yoni egg in as a meditation practice. It is wonderful to be consciously in touch with your body while wearing a yoni egg, so dancing is a great idea!

      Hi Trina,

      Thank you for your comment. Yoni eggs are wonderful before you are pregnant, and after you are pregnant, but please do not wear a yoni egg while you are pregnant. Please let me know if there is anything I can help with!

    Which egg should I have for cleansing of old lovers? And which egg is good for love happiness or health?

      Hi Lisa,

      For clearing old energies, I would suggest an obsidian egg. Obsidian is a very powerful stone, it is volcanic glass, and it is known for bringing old energies and traumas to the surface to be cleansed and released. That said, because it is so intense, many women have reported to us that they only want to wear the obsidian egg for a few hours at a time before switching over to either a jade or rose quartz egg. The rose quartz egg is a great one for love and happiness, as the rose quartz is associated with the heart center. I find the rose quartz to be very gentle, heart focused and loving. The Jade is the best stone to use for your ongoing every day yoni egg practice. This is the stone that has been used for the yoni egg practice for over 5000 years. Jade is known to be very balancing and invigorating, and many women have reported to us increased health from a regular practice with a jade egg. We do offer a set that contains one jade, one obsidian and one rose quartz egg, which gives you the opportunity to experiment with the different sizes and stones. You can find that set on our site here: https://yoniegg.com/product/set-of-3-yoni-eggs/

      Please let me know if you have any other questions.

    I’m in the midst of menopause and sex is extremely painful and the hormone cream and pills started to cause a blood clot in my leg. Can the yoni egg be able to help with this?

      Hi Lillie,

      Thank you for your question. I am not able to give medical advice, so please check with your doctor about the blood clot. That said, there are many menopausal women who have taken up a regular yoni egg practice and reported to us that it has helped immensely with increasing natural lubrication and making sex more enjoyable. I think a yoni egg could definitely help!

    Hi
    Yesterday my husband came home because he had read something about the yani egg and I have never heard of it before and am reading a lot of great information on your site.

    I just want to make sure that this is right for me and haven’t found any of the questions particularly like my case.

    I had a total hysterectomy about 10 years ago and then my bladder descended so I had another procedure to lift the bladder and it was successful. I am quite a sexual person and enjoy my partner completely. But just recently I’m finding that I can’t orgasm.

    I am physically fit for my age which is 53 but I know that my pelvic floor is not very strong and have tried other devices to strengthen it. I finally gave up.

    Given all of the surgery that I’ve had do you think that the egg would be something that would work for me?

    Also I see that you sell three eggs but you recommend the Jade as the first but your largest is black obsidian I believe so if I were to do this I want to be sure I’m choosing the right egg. I know I have a very weak vagina so I’m guessing that I would need a larger egg. Can you help?

      Dee,

      Thank you for sharing. We have many women who have had hysterectomies report to us that doing a regular yoni egg practice has helped them regain dexterity (a combination of strength and flexibility), have stronger orgasms and enjoy sex more. You can absolutely use a yoni egg if you have had a hysterectomy, and I think it could really help you. Yoni eggs are wonderful tools to help you re-connect to your body and your sexuality, and to help regain the sensitivity that you had before. The large sized eggs are great for beginners, and we offer the large size in our jade, rose quartz and obsidian eggs. Most women who start with the large size move down to the medium size with regular practice pretty quickly, and end up sticking with the medium size for their ongoing yoni egg practice. Please let me know if there are any other questions I can help with.

    How far do the Yoni eggs go up..?

    Reply
    • Shoshana

      Neeek,

      The yoni egg sits in the center of the vaginal canal, but cannot travel past the cervix. Exactly how far from the vaginal opening the egg sits depends on the unique shape and size of each woman’s vaginal canal, so I am not able to give an exact measurement.
