I never thought incontinence would happen to me. And that no one really wants to talk about it. I started getting questions at the gynecologist 15 years ago about this subject and the only answer to the problem was surgery.
I don't want surgery. At my age I've realized that all surgery does is lead to other problems.
The past few years I've noticed an increase in incontinence. I went from light pantyliners to heavier pantyliners and then to actual pads. I recently had a minor procedure (stomach) and had to wear an overnight pad. When I walked across the room I could already fill the pad :(
In July I went to a Urogynecologist. Her only question to me was why I was so against surgery. No offers of anything else to fix this.
And that's when I turned my desperation to the internet. First search produced this product - Flyte. (You must have good IT people who "helped" google push you to the top.. and for good reason)
Hesitant... I've done kegels before and nothing seemed to work. Okay... I'll give it a try.
9/13/23 was the end to my 6th week. I have gone from almost completely incontinent to about 90% continent with some events (like if I forget to go to the bathroom cause I'm too busy ) I have some leakage.
To those of you just trying this product out now. You will have good days and bad days. I will admit that the first two weeks were difficult. I questioned everyday why I wasn't successful. I changed lubricant and position (ended up with KY jelly and lying on back with hips elevated) around that time. That doesn't mean each day after was perfect either. But I found more perfect days than not and I persevered (thank you #ElizabethWarren).
Last night I continued my journey and I reached the top of the lights each time. I'm getting stronger and can feel it.
Persevere ladies. Talk to each other... talk to your sisters/friends/parents/and Leah and her team here at Flyte. If you don't understand something keep asking and trying.
Thank you Flyte. You gave me hope things would get better
I plugged my biofeedback unit in to charge and hours later I went back to check it and it had not charged, nor would it work in any other outlet. I am not happy with not being able to even give it a try! I would like a refund.
Hi Cilinda! The charging light on the controller will not turn on if it does not need to be charged. Go ahead and plug in your wand to your controller to start your treatments. We have also sent you an email to let you know we are here to help.
Not working well. Slips out. Rarely can I get the light to go on when I squeeze. I’ve been using it 3 weeks. I will call and set up a phone consultation
We look forward to talking with you, Marcia! Our pelvic health physical therapists are here to help with 1:1 live conversations. We also have some great videos under Support > Using Flyte FAQs and Videos that are very helpful.
I was really reluctant to buy Flyte online at the price that it is, however, I took a chance and I'm glad I did! 6 weeks solved my problem!!! Very satisfied. Totally worth the money.
Flyte has been a great addition to my pelvic health physical therapy tools. It is beneficial for strengthening in every patient who needs it. It helps patients take strengthening to the next level through the use of biofeedback, pre-stretch of the muscles, and low vibration, all which make the contractions more effective! I particularly like this tool for my patients with pelvic organ prolapse. They often struggle to progress strengthening (to give better support to the organs) with exercises alone so this tool is the perfect addition for them! Definitely a "must have" treatment option.
