Your pelvic floor muscles are easy to forget about until they weaken. Putting a pad down to catch the urine doesn’t resolve the muscle weakness.
Those muscles need training so they’re strong enough to control urine flow.
Kegel exercises are the contraction and relaxation of vaginal and anal muscles. You can do them in your chair a few times a day and no one will be the wiser.
There are other exercises for strengthening your pelvic floor. Aligning your breathing with contractions of your pelvic floor may strengthen the muscles even more.
You should have a noticeable difference in your pelvic floor in eight to twelve weeks. You have to do the exercises daily.
Listen as Dr. Sara Terrell joins Dr. Pamela Peeke to discuss SUI and how to strenghten your pelvic floor muscles.
