  1. Thanks I just recieved mines and I was scared to insert them in , now I am thinking o go and put them inside and give them a shot not panic it’s a good advice. Thanks

  2. Just tried the balls for the first time. First ball came out really easy. Second one, not so much. I stuck my finger in as far as possible an couldn’t even feel it at all. Like no sign of it at all. Tried squatting at pushing with my finger in there and i still couldn’t even feel it not even a little bit. I panicked. Idk why but I did. Not relaxing is not helpful. Luckily I had my bf here so he stuck his finger in and he felt it. Took him bout three mins to get it out. As soon as I lubed it up better it came out. Next time I’ll relax. It is kinda scary to not feel it but I kno I jus needed to relax.

  3. honestly i will never try the ben wa balls that don’t have a string to them i used the small ones that don’t have the string and omfg it was so hard and scary getting them out i had to use a douche to get them to come out.

  4. Thank you for your advice. I was starting to panic, as one of the balls was really stuck in, must have good pelvic muscles. The thought of having to go to an emergency clinic to get it out, had crossed my mind, and then I read your article, I jumped a few times, and out it popped!!!

  5. I lost my balls! Aside from all my giggling, i didn’t hit the panic button. I went to the kitchen to get some tongs then had the idea of needing a magnet. Being as mine are magnetic. So off to the garage to find one of those telescoping tools that keeps the screws from falling to the engine. Viola! They should really think of selling these as a complete set!

  6. I was panicking after trying everything on this list. I even tried it in a warm shower to try and relax a bit. My first time using the balls, and they were small glass ones, from what I read it should have been hard to keep them in. Finally, after a few dep breaths I decided to reach in and see if I could feel them. From the squatting position I could feel the first one, once I hooked my finger around it, I tried pushing again. With each push, it rolled a bit further down my finger. They were stuck on the other side of the tighter first 1-2 inches of the vagina. Turns out they just needed a pathway to follow.

    Long story short, squat, reach in and get a finger around the side of the ball, bear down. Ball should follow down the finger like a little track.
