What are pelvic floor dysfunctions?
Factors such as aging, diet, body weight gain, health conditions and life habits can stretch and strain the pelvic floor muscles that support the pelvic organs. As the pelvic area muscles get weak, so do its contractions. This means the muscle group can't easily tighten and relax the urethral opening, anus and vaginal opening, resulting in frequent urination, incontinence, and decreased sexual pleasure. Also, the loose pelvic muscles cannot hold up the pelvic area organs, resulting in pelvic organ prolapse (pelvic area organs sliding out of the body).
How often should women do Kegel exercises?
Performing pelvic floor muscle exercises helps to strengthen the muscle group. However, overtraining the muscle group can cause it to be overly tense. As a result, women are generally recommended to perform Kegel exercises twice daily, with 3 sets each time, and 10 repetitions per set.
