5 Pelvic Floor Exercises To Relieve Urinary Incontinence

Your pelvic floor muscles may weaken after childbirth or as you get older. The bladder, bowel, and uterus are all supported by pelvic muscles. The organs are elevated, and the entrances to the vagina, anus, and urethra are tightened, as they contract. Urine and faeces can be expelled from the body when the muscles are relaxed. Sexual function is also impacted by the muscles of the pelvic floor. These muscles can be strengthened to lessen pelvic pain during sex and improve the ability to achieve pleasurable sensations.
