Kegel exercises are pelvic floor muscle strengthening exercises. The pelvic floor muscles strengthen the uterus, the bladder, and the rectum, as well as the small intestine. Kegel exercises can be done at any time because they involve the contraction and relaxation of pelvic muscles.
The pelvic floor muscles can be weakened due to many factors. Some of them include pregnancy, childbirth, aging, excess body weight, chronic coughing, surgery and frequent constipation. Kegel exercises are especially necessary if you tend to leak a few drops of urine when you sneeze, laugh or cough hard. This is called stress incontinence. Kegel exercises are required if the urge to urinate hits you hard suddenly just before you lose a significant amount of urine. This condition is called urinary incontinence. Kegel exercises will also benefit you if you have fecal incontinence. To prevent urinary incontinence, Kegel exercises can be done during pregnancy and after childbirth. If, because of stress incontinence, you lose a significant amount of urine instead of just a few drops when you laugh, cough or sneeze, Kegel exercises may not be as beneficial. Kegel exercises also don’t help when one has overflow incontinence which is a situation where one leaks a few drops of urine unexpectedly due to a full bladder.
