Many factors can weaken our pelvic muscles, from pregnancy, childbirth, to being overweight. This is known as a pelvic organ prolapse and the effects can range from uncomfortable pelvic pressure to leakage of urine, incontinence, and even sexual dysfunction.
If left untreated the condition may worsen, and normally can only be repaired with corrective surgery and most often will result in a complete hysterectomy.
The Kegel Exercise is the only known non-surgical solution for the prevention of nearly all forms of female pelvic floor disorders, and I would like to add that Kegel exercises are not only for women but men as well.
There are many devices out there to help you with these exercises, but statistics have shown that since its introduction over 60 years ago, the Kegel exercise can be performed where a woman squeezes nothing, and if done correctly has been proven effective.
You can do Kegel exercises discreetly from just about anywhere, whether you are sitting at your desk, in your car or relaxing on your sofa. Start by understanding what Kegel exercises can do for you, then follow step by step instructions for contracting and relaxing your pelvic floor muscles.
By the way you can even do Kegel exercises while you are pregnant.
