Many beginners ask, “Are yoni eggs safe?” Many women who use yoni eggs have reported many benefits without any issues. At Kegglers, we have had hundreds of clients who provided only positive reviews. By using the yoni egg in moderation and as directed, there is negligible risk. All our products have detailed instructions on how to safely use them accordingly.

Yoni eggs are an all-natural option made from gemstones. These stones have unique properties that can improve general women’s health and wellness. It can stand up to cleansing and is made without any chemicals. Depending on the different crystals, these gemstones can provide extra support for your general well-being.

Ultimately, Yoni eggs play the same role as Kegel weights or vaginal cones. All these items help enhance Kegel exercises that strengthen pelvic floor muscles and improve general sexual health.

Why Do Health Experts Disagree with Using Yoni Eggs?

Many gynecologists disagree with using yoni eggs as there hasn’t been much
research about the risks and benefits of using these eggs. In addition, yoni eggs also have a bad reputation after Gwyneth Paltrow’s Goop debacle. Besides that, there are two main factors that have led to much debate about the use of yoni eggs.


Excessive Use

Proper pelvic floor therapy requires both contraction and relaxation of the pelvic floor muscles. Excessive use of yoni eggs can cause more tension in the pelvic floor.

This is because the vaginal muscles need to contract to hold the egg in. This can lead to excessive pelvic floor tension leading to:

Pelvic pain
Pain during sex
Pelvic floor muscle spasms
Back or abdominal pain

This issue can be remedied by following the recommendations when using yoni eggs. Try to stick to a routine of not more than 15 to 20 minutes per practice session. This avoids prolonged continuous contractions and decreases the risk of infection.


Another major factor contributing to the debate of yoni eggs is the risk of infection. Yes, there is a risk of infection with the use of yoni eggs. However, this can easily be remedied by following the basic steps to cleaning and sanitizing your yoni eggs.

  • Gemstones

Infection is a major factor contributing to the debate of yoni eggs. Some gemstones are semi-porous. This means that bacteria can enter and stay in the egg resulting in infection such as bacterial vaginosis. Some gemstones are also unsuitable for use inside the body as they break down easily.

  • Defects

Made from natural stones, the yoni eggs can also crack and chip. These sites can harbor bacteria that may cause infection.

  • Hygiene

Hygiene is also very important. Yoni egg users must learn how to cleanse and sterilize the eggs between each practice session.

The issue of infection can be remedied with the following steps:

Start by researching the best type of gemstone for you. Avoid precious stones that are porous or semi-porous. If unsure, it is best to stick to well-known gemstones such as obsidian.

Take care of your yoni egg like it is a jewel. Check the egg for cracks and chips before using.

Always sterilize the yoni egg before using it by boiling it.

Avoid using the yoni egg for more than 15 to 20 minutes.

Can Yoni Eggs Get Lost in The Body?

This question is a common worry for beginners to the yoni egg practice. If you look at the female anatomy, yoni eggs will not be lost if inserted vaginally. Once inserted in the vagina, it stays in the vaginal canal. It is unable to move upwards due to the location of the cervix. At the sides, the yoni egg is limited by the vaginal walls.

However, the yoni egg should not be inserted into the anus. There is no upper border to the rectum and with time, the yoni egg can move deeper into the body. This is why anal toys have flared bases to prevent it from moving deeper into the body.

Can Yoni Eggs Get Stuck?

Now that we have concluded yoni eggs cannot be lost in the vagina, some may ask if it can get stuck. Many beginners find the yoni egg practice daunting as there are horror stories where some women are unable to remove their eggs. Thankfully, there are some fool-proof methods to removing the yoni egg:

1The most important thing to remember is to relax. Do not panic as this causes your body to tense up and makes removal harder.
2Bear down and push hard. This is similar to straining when you are having a bowel movement.
3You can also squat and bear down as this helps relax your pelvic floor muscles.
4If you are unable to relax, take a break and try again later.

For women who are still worried, you can opt for a yoni egg with a drilled hole. This allows you to attach a disposable string such as unwaxed dental floss at the hole. When removing, gently pull on the string to help the egg come out, just like removing a tampon.


Can I use Yoni Eggs When I Sleep?

Avoid sleeping with your yoni egg as it is very likely to exceed the recommended time limit for wearing the egg. Many pain receptors also turn off during sleep. Although many yoni egg users have done this, it can result in pain and a tense pelvic floor.

Can I use Yoni Eggs During My Period?

This depends on each woman. Although using the yoni egg during your period is not harmful, it is not generally recommended especially if you are using a menstrual cup. Allow your uterus to release your monthly flow without additional stimulation from the yoni egg.

However, some women find that wearing the yoni egg helps them during their periods. Enjoy the calming and healing energy from the yoni egg. Make sure to clean the yoni egg thoroughly before and after using the egg. Avoid wearing it more than the recommended duration.

Can I use Yoni Eggs During My Pregnancy?

Can I use Yoni Eggs After Childbirth?

However, it is recommended that you only start using your yoni egg after 6 to 8 weeks after birth. This tallies with the recommendation where most doctors say to wait a minimum of 6 weeks after childbirth before having sex. If in doubt, ask your healthcare team for medical advice.

Can I use Yoni Eggs With an IUD?

Women who have an intrauterine device (IUD) should not be using a yoni egg. This is because the yoni egg may displace the IUD.

Can I use them After Surgery?

Women who have had recent surgery around the uterus or vagina should avoid inserting yoni eggs into the vagina until the incision or wound has completely healed. This is to avoid introducing any form of infection that can compromise your healing after surgery. You can still hold the yoni egg in your hands for meditation or healing after surgery.

Can I use Jade Eggs With Infection?

If there is an infection around the genital area, it is best to wait until one is fully healed. This allows your yoni time to heal. Instead, connect with your yoni and listen for what she requires.

The Bottom LineIn Conclusion: Are Yoni Eggs Really Safe?
