The stage of life women should start doing Kegels


Kegel exercises can play an important
role in a woman’s intimate health across her lifespan. Certainly one area
where we think about beginning Kegels is during pregnancy as a method of strengthening the
pelvic floor in anticipation of the effect of delivery and quite frankly
just the effect of carrying a pregnancy, in and of itself, even
without a vaginal delivery that weight and extra stress on the pelvic
floor can potentially lead to problems. Certainly after that delivery a
woman may continue to do Kegel exercises, to restrengthen the pelvic floor. It’s
not at all uncommon for women to experience urinary incontinence in the days, weeks, months that
follow a delivery, and so Kegel exercises and use of Kegel
exercise devices are going to help that woman really regain the pelvic health that
she had pre-pregnancy So that obviously that might be a
woman in her early twenties that is starting to do Kegel
exercises but as we age other factors come into
play: the loss of estrogen with menopause can result in weakened pelvic floor muscles and so there’s another wonderful stage
of life where a woman is going to get some benefit
in strengthening her pelvic floor, not only for continence, but also for strong, healthy sexuality.
