Can these beads be worn freely? Without the white casing?
It would be just like ben wa balls. While they can't get 'stuck' (your cervix will NEVER open that wide unless you decide to shove 'em up there right after giving birth!) they could still be difficult to get out and unless you have good muscle control or long fingers, they could cause infection if you would be too embarassed to have a doctor get them out for you.
I had ben wa balls 'stuck' in me once, and all I needed to do was press very very firmly high on the front wall of my vagina while bearing down, and the balls slid out. Still, that can be a scary experience and your nerves may not allow you to get that far without panicking!
