Strength from down under!
Kegel exercises can help you prevent or control urinary incontinence and other pelvic floor problems.
How they work?
Kegel exercises strengthen the pelvic floor muscles, which support the uterus, bladder, small intestine and rectum. The great news is that you can do then anywhere, at any time!
Why they matter
Many factors can weaken your pelvic floor muscles, including pregnancy, surgery, aging, constipation, and being overweight.
All women can benefit from doing Kegel exercises, but you should especially do them if you:
- Leak a few drops of urine while sneezing, laughing or coughing (stress incontinence)
- Have a strong, sudden urge to urinate just before losing a large amount of urine (urge incontinence)
- Leak stool (fecal incontinence)
- Are pregnant or recently gave birth.
