If you have an IUD. We do not recommend using a yoni egg in this case, because there are no studies regarding the safety of using a yoni egg with an IUD. There is a small chance that the movement of the egg can bump against the IUD and push it out of place.
That being said, many women who use an IUD also choose to practice with a yoni egg. If you choose to use a yoni egg and you have an IUD, you do so at your own discretion. Consult a health care professional prior to engaging in this practice.
We also caution women who use an IUD against using the yoni egg with a string, since a string could become tangled with the IUD strings and pull the device.
DO NOT practice vaginal weight lifting or yoni egg resistance exercises with a string if you have an IUD – this can reduce its effectiveness as a contraceptive device, as well as create tears in the walls of your uterus.
Please do not use Yoni Egg while pregnant. You don’t want to jostle the uterus during pregnancy, or stir up energies or tissue release that could create contractions and compromise your pregnancy. If you have already developed a strong yoni egg practice and practiced regularly for 6 months prior to conception, you may be an exception. Still in these cases we recommend only the very passive, yin yoni exercises, and to consult your midwife or health care team. Yoni egg is a wonderful practice to embark on after you gave birth and your health practitioner confirmed that it is now safe to do so.
Women who have any type of internal infection (cervical, uterine or ovarian inflammation) or a fever are advised not to practice with a yoni egg until the symptoms have passed. Also do not practice if open sores or blisters are present.
Please do not use a yoni egg if you have a bladder, vaginal or rectal prolapse, unless you were instructed to do so by a health care practitioner.
