Imagine a company that sold small hollow plastic balls and little else! What could they be for? Actually, hollow plastic balls are good for a variety of reasons. Some, made by companies like Orange Products, Inc., are for medical and industrial purposes. They can be made from materials like nylon, torlon, acetal, Delrin, RPX and PE and can range in size from one sixteenth of an inch to two inches/ Surface finishes range from rough to highly polished.
Depending on what they’re used for, these balls can be used for bearings, drawer slides used in furniture, medical equipment, valves and pumps. They’re made to resist rust, fatigue, chemicals and to be low cost.
Other balls are used to contain vapor and for pollution control. These balls, which are usually made from polypropylene or polyethylene, are made to resist chemicals and can be filled with air or water. These balls are placed on the surface of a liquid and keep the liquid from losing heat and evaporating at too fast a rate. They also suppress the growth of microbes and control bad odors and dangerous fumes. These little balls come in sizes from 20 mm to 100 mm.
These companies also produce roll on balls that can be either solid or hollow as well as the fitments for them. While some companies blow mold their hollow balls, other companies produce two piece balls, put them together then grind and finish them. The textures of these balls can be rough, frosted or smooth. They’re most often made from polypropylene.
What Is It?
Vaginismus is a painful, often embarrassing condition where the vaginal muscles tense uncontrollably due to anxiety or stress. It can affect women from all walks of life in any country. It’s estimated that up to seven percent of marriages crumble due to vaginismus.
What Are The Symptoms?
While it strikes everyone differently, here are a few common complaints of those with vaginismus:
– Painful intercourse
– Burning or tightness with attempted penetration
– Inability to use tampons
– Phobia of the gynecologist
– Racing heart or sweatiness
– Involuntary spasms
Why Did It Happen To Me?
Despite the myth, vaginismus isn’t caused by a fear of sex. Indeed, many women want to overcome it so they can satisfy their husbands or go swimming in the summer. They’ve just created such a psychological block, or their bodies have become so accustomed to their fight-or-flight responses, that overcoming the condition is difficult.
What Can I Do?
The good news about vaginismus is that it doesn’t have to be a lifelong struggle. There are several ways to combat it.
– For mild cases, kegal exercises at home can stretch the muscles in the legs and pelvis, allowing easier penetration and less tension during sex.
– For more moderate cases, various forms of therapy, including psychotherapy and hypnotherapy, have been effective in figuring out the root causes of the vaginismus.
– In extreme cases, Botox injections have been shown to “loosen up” the vaginal wall and relax the muscles so spasms won’t occur. Visit a site like VaginismusMD.com to learn more about Botox treatments and how they can cure your condition.
