Gwyneth Paltrow has been using a jade egg "the size of a tennis ball" and instead of removing it, she keep it inside for a long time, sometimes days, according to the article. It makes her "feel sexy". A gynecologist responded to her that women should not put jade eggs in their vaginas. He mentioned that "jade doesn't have energy, whatever that is", and keeping a jade egg inside the vagina can cause bacteria and infections.
The gynecologist is right about not keeping a jade egg inside for long periods of time.
Jade eggs have been used by Chinese women for centuries as part of vaginal and kegel muscle health. The egg is used during their practice of kegel exercise, then removed. And the sizes of the jade eggs are important: a large egg (40mm) to recover from the stretching of childbirth; a small egg (24mm) for postmenopausal women who have lost vaginal moisture and are dry, can't enjoy sex because penetration is painful; and the medium size jade is for women who are healthy and want to stay healthy.
The egg is made from jade because in Chinese medicine, jade health tools, including jade roller, jade gua sha tools, jade pillows, jade teapots because jade has qi energy compatible with humans. The theory behind Chinese medicine is that body qi energy flows through the acupuncture points, and when a point is blocked, the qi doesn't flow smoothly, and that causes illness, depending on the location of the blocked acupressure point. And jade is often used as a healing tool because jade helps keep the body qi flowing smoothly.
Jade eggs that are too large can cause health problems. Ying Yu Jade was the first seller of jade eggs in the USA, and they were made according to Chinese medicine standards. The jade eggs because very popular, and other people wanted to buy and sell them, too. But they didn't understand the Chinese medicine theory behind them, and were impressed by Chinese jade sellers who offered very large jade eggs, dark green that they claim are "nephrite", but unfortunately they are not true jade. The kind of jade that is healthy for women is the "yin" light green color, with possibly a darker green jade egg if the body needs more "yang". Women are "yin", and need the "yin" light green for health. Too much yang can upset your qi flow. And a too large egg can cause damage to your vagina, stretch it to make it bigger. A jade egg larger than 40mm length can cause permanent damage. And it can cause your sex life to deteriorate if your vagina is so expanded it loses its sensitivity to your partner when he enters your vagina. A jade egg inside your vagina for more than the 15-20 minutes daily will also make your "pleasure points" less sensitive to penis skin. Sex will not be as pleasurable.
Jade yone eggs can be a very helpful tool for vaginal health. But if you are using too large eggs, not using them correctly, it will accomplish the opposite of what you are hoping for.
