Kegel Exercises for Women For Pelvic Floor Strengthening

Avantir Wellness - December 29, 2023 Array

For many women, particularly as we age, the issue of bladder “leakage” becomes a significant concern. The natural weakening of the pelvic floor, influenced by factors like pregnancy, childbirth and ageing can lead to this common problem.

Kegel exercises for women, also known as pelvic floor exercises, play a crucial role in strengthening your pelvic floor muscles. Let’s explore the significance of Kegel exercises for women, detailing their benefits, proper technique, and ways to incorporate them into a daily routine.

Understanding the Pelvic Floor

Your pelvic floor muscles support organs in your pelvis such as the bladder, bowel, uterus and vagina. 

These muscles are instrumental in maintaining the proper positioning of your pelvic organs and contribute to essential bodily functions like urination, bowel movements, and sexual activity.

Various factors can weaken your pelvic floor muscles, including pregnancy, childbirth, surgery, ageing, excessive straining from constipation, chronic coughing, and being overweight.

Kegel exercises involve tightening and then releasing the muscles in your pelvic floor to strengthen them.

Benefits of Kegel Exercises for Women:

  1. Improved Bladder Control: One of the primary benefits of Kegel exercises is their ability to strengthen the pelvic floor muscles, reducing the risk of urinary incontinence and improving overall bladder control.
  2. Enhanced Sexual Function: Kegels can contribute to increased sexual satisfaction by improving blood flow to the pelvic region, enhancing arousal, and promoting stronger, more coordinated pelvic muscle contractions during orgasm.
  3. Prevention and Management of Pelvic Organ Prolapse: Regular practice of Kegel exercises can help prevent and manage pelvic organ prolapse, a condition where pelvic organs sag into the vaginal canal due to weakened support.
  4. Faster Postpartum Recovery: For women who have recently given birth, Kegel exercises aid in the recovery of pelvic floor muscles, promoting faster healing and preventing issues such as stress urinary incontinence.

How to do Kegel Exercises

  • Identify the Right Muscles: Begin by locating the pelvic floor muscles. The easiest way to do this is by stopping the flow of urine midstream. The muscles used to do this are the ones targeted by Kegel exercises.
  • Perfect the Technique: Once you’ve identified the pelvic floor muscles, contract them for a count of three, then relax for a count of three. Gradually increase the duration of the contractions and relaxations as your muscles become stronger.
  • Consistency is Key: Like any exercise routine, consistency is crucial. Aim for at least three sets of 10 repetitions each day. You can perform Kegel exercises discreetly while sitting at your desk, watching TV, or even waiting in line.
  • Avoid Common Mistakes: Ensure that you are not contracting the muscles of your abdomen, thighs, or buttocks during Kegel exercises. Focus solely on the pelvic floor muscles.

Sometimes Manual Kegel Exercises May Not Work For You

It is possible that your muscles may be too weak for manual Kegel exercises to yield optimal results. Alternatively, you might be experiencing nerve damage due to pelvic surgery or childbirth, which can restrict your ability to voluntarily contract and relax your pelvic floor muscles.

If you are having trouble doing Kegel exercises, don’t worry. At Avantir Wellness, we offer discreet and highly effective pelvic floor strengthening with StarFormer®. StarFormer® is a high-intensity Tesla magnetic stimulation (HITS™) device that employs non-invasive FMS (Functional Magnetic Stimulator) technology to induce up to 50,000 muscle contractions in 30 minutes which is the equivalent to performing 50,000 kegels in 30 minutes!
