Is Flyte right for me?
Flyte® is designed to help women who want to strengthen pelvic floor muscles and treat mild, moderate or severe stress urinary incontinence (SUI) — the bladder leaks that happen when you laugh, cough, sneeze, exercise or lift things.
Wondering if Flyte® can help you? Here are some steps to take.
Think about if you’re:
- Looking for an alternative to surgery.
- Looking for a simple approach with a home-use product that doesn't require you to download an app or use a WiFi or Bluetooth connection to work. Flyte doesn't. It is simple and easy-to-use.
- Looking to do something more than just Kegel exercises. Flyte® is designed to work fast – in as little as 5 minutes per day for a six-week standard treatment time — it’s a lot easier to stick with than Kegels.
- Looking for a product backed by strong clinical evidence. We believe that women deserve safe, effective, well-studied products. See Flyte's® clinical evidence.
- Comfortable with using an intravaginal device. We get it. Some women won’t be and that’s OK. Others will weigh the benefits and decide to try it.
- Able to commit to using Flyte® for 5 minutes per day for the 6-week standard treatment time. While Flyte® requires one of the shortest treatment times compared to other home-use treatments, it will require your time.
- Tired of spending money on pads. See our Cost of Coping article and consider Flyte® to help you save money over time.
- Fed up with dealing with leaks. Flyte® comes with a money back guarantee. Why not try it?
- Looking to do something. Leaks often get worse over time.

Take the SUI questionnaire
Only a healthcare professional can diagnosis you, but the questionnaire can give you insight into the type of incontinence you have. Flyte® is designed to strengthen and treat weakened pelvic floor muscles – a cause of SUI.
Talk to a healthcare professional
There’s no substitute for a clinical consultation and medical advice provided by a doctor, nurse practitioner, or pelvic floor physical therapist.
If you've started using Flyte, you might be wondering, when do I call my doctor or healthcare professional? When do I contact Pelvital customer care? Here are some tips:
Stop using Flyte and call your healthcare professional for medical questions or concerns:
- I am experiencing unusual pelvic pain, irritation, spotting or bleeding
- I think I might have an infection
- I think I might be pregnant

- I am not sure how to use Flyte
- I am not sure how to contract my muscles with the Flyte wand
