Kegel Exercises - Dr. Axe

Who Should Perform Kegel Exercises?

If you experience any of these symptoms, you can benefit from regularly practicing some simple kegel exercises:
  • You have weak control over your bladder and sometimes you experience a “leak” when you do things like exercise, laugh, and strongly cough (this is called urinary incontinence) (2)
  • You suffer similar problems with bowel movements and tend to feel like you cannot control things when you need to go to the bathroom (this is called fecal incontinence)
  • You have been diagnosed with “urinary incontinence”, which is a strong and sudden sensation of having to urinate and then having little control over stopping it from happening
  • You had a pregnancy and delivery that left your pelvic floor feeling different and less strong than it felt prior to being pregnant
  • You are pregnant and want to work on strengthening your pelvis in order to prepare for the bodily stress of labor
  • You had surgery performed on any of the organs involved in the pelvic floor region, including the bladder, uterus, intestines, or rectum which make it difficult for you to control these organs and to properly eliminate waste
  • You are finding that as you age, you have less control over your pelvic floor than you used to have
  • Being overweight has limited the strength in your pelvic floor, resulting in unwanted symptoms
  • You are either a man or women who has trouble reaching orgasms and want to improve your sex life
