The pelvic floor is the area around your bladder, backside, vagina or penis. Strengthening your pelvic floor muscles can help with conditions such as urinary incontinence, help with pelvic organ collapse and will help you have better sex.

Your pelvic floor muscles are those that you use when you try to stop urinating when going to the toilet. To strengthen your pelvic floor muscles sit comfortably and squeeze them between 10 and 15 times in a row. You shouldn’t hold your breath while doing this nor tighten your stomach, thigh or bottom muscles at the same time. When you become comfortable doing this exercise try maintaining each squeeze for several seconds for added effect. Add squeezes each week that you do the exercise but be careful not to overdo it. You will notice the effects after a few months and should continue the exercises regularly.
