Many beginners feel intimidated as they are unsure how to use yoni eggs. Yoni eggs are adaptable to all lifestyles regardless of age. The reason each person seeks to use the yoni eggs will differ depending on their circumstance, intentions, needs, and desires. This makes the size and type of stone to differ for each woman.

Getting Your Yoni Egg Ready

Yoni eggs should be cleaned carefully. This helps to keep them in good shape and maximizes the effects for the user. There are two ways to yoni egg cleaning: physical and spiritual. Both these methods should be done as the physical prepares it for your body and the spiritual prepares it for your soul.


  • Washing

Begin by washing your yoni egg with warm water and mild soap. This should be done even with new yoni eggs fresh out of its packaging. You can also wash the egg using a vinegar solution. Rinse the egg with running water that has a similar temperature to the yoni egg.

  • Sterilizing

Some experts may recommend boiling the egg for 20 to 30 minutes to sterilize the egg before insertion. If you decide to do this, make sure to increase the water temperature gradually to prevent it from cracking.

In some cases, there is a chance that the yoni egg may crack or chip. The risk is higher for yoni eggs made from amethyst and rose quartz. If this happens, do not use the yoni egg anymore.

  • Drying

After it is cleaned, pat dry using a clean towel or air dry. Some yoni egg users add some essential oils such as tea tree oil or lavender to the egg. These essential oils may act as an antiseptic as it is believed to have antifungal and antiviral properties.

  • Special Care

If you have chosen a drilled yoni egg, take extra care to clean the drilled area thoroughly. You can use an interdental wire brush or toothpick to help you clean the hole.

Always use a new interdental brush or toothpick for cleaning. It is crucial that you use a hygienic and disposable string for your yoni egg. A good example is unwaxed dental floss.



Each different gemstone has its own unique energy. After you receive your yoni egg, it is important to cleanse and charge it before use. This prevents negative energy from being retained and affecting you.

Cleansing Cleansing

Cleanse your yoni egg before using it for the first time. Cleansing should also be done regularly to dispel negative energies it picks up from the user. Soaking the yoni egg in saltwater is an effective and easy method. However, it can be too abrasive and can remove the sparkle or gloss from the stone. While cleansing, imagine light is channeled into the egg.

Charging Charging

You can also charge your yoni egg before using it. This can be done by placing it under sunlight or moonlight. Note that some stones may lose their color if placed under sunlight for prolonged durations.

As it gets paler, some stones may even entirely lose their color. This is often the case for stones that are quartz or colored crystals. Examples include:

Rose quartz
Smoky quartz

Bonding Bonding

Once your yoni egg has been cleansed and charged, you can bond with your yoni egg. Some yoni egg users refer to this as programming or setting your intentions. Start by creating a quiet space. Lay down and hold your yoni egg close to you. Tell it your needs and desires. Create your relationship by harmonizing your energy with the stone.

Instructions on Using Yoni Eggs

The yoni egg practice is a sensory and spiritual practice. While it can bring pleasure, the yoni egg is a spiritual tool. Respect your egg like you would a good friend.

Yoni egg Insertion

Once you have prepared your egg, find a comfortable position and relax. Apply a generous amount of lubrication on your egg. Take slow deep breaths and gently insert your yoni egg. This process takes time, so try to be patient.

Do not force the insertion. You can also try caressing and stimulating your body. Your body will decide if it is ready for your yoni egg.

When you have inserted your yoni egg, there are several things you can do:

Yoni Egg Meditation

You can meditate using the yoni egg by holding the egg in your hands or when it is inserted. Relax, reach for your feminine energy and sexual energy. Try connecting with your spiritual self. You can focus on your yoni and breathing. Attempt to sync your breaths while focusing on your energy.

Yoni Egg Exercise

There are pelvic floor exercises you can do while laying down. Try to feel for the presence of the yoni egg. Once you have located it, begin to tighten and release the pelvic floor muscles. Kegel exercises require both contraction and relaxation of the pelvic floor muscles as they are vital as part of the practice.

Having Sex with Yoni Eggs

Yoni egg experts do not generally recommend having sex while wearing the yoni egg, However, some women enjoy using the yoni egg as a sex toy. You can do this best with a smaller egg and have it positioned near the g-spot. Be careful so the yoni egg does not hit the cervix too much to cause pain and soreness.

  Safety measures for using Yoni Eggs

Remember that the maximum recommended duration of wearing the egg is 15 to 20 minutes. Start with a short duration and gradually increase your practice time.

Removing Your Yoni Egg

Removal of the yoni egg comes naturally and easily for many women. You can bear down or strain to push the egg out. If it does not, try squatting and pushing, like having a bowel movement. This method is often effective, evidenced by women who have eggs that fall out while going to the toilet.

There are some women who may have much difficulty with removing the yoni egg especially if the uterus is retroflexed. In cases where women are afraid of the egg getting stuck, drilled yoni eggs may be the better option.

The user can gently tug on the string to help pull the egg out. After removal, wash your yoni egg and store it carefully till your next session.

The Bottom LineImportant Takeaways on How to Use Yoni Eggs

Certain gemstones are more vulnerable and can chip or crack to harbor bacteria. Always clean your yoni egg physically and check it thoroughly for chips or cracks before insertion. Wear your yoni egg for a maximum duration of 15 to 20 minutes.

Both these steps help to lower the risk of infection. If you are still unsure of how to use yoni eggs, think of the yoni egg practice as similar to vaginal weightlifting, but with a naturally charged gemstone.
