Ever find yourself in a situation where you go, “Aaaaaaaahhhhhh chooooooo!” Then realize that you just pee-ed yourself. How embarrassing and annoying isn't it?
This is a problem many women experience after giving childbirth or facing menopause. So what can you do about this problem?
Other than undergoing surgery, you might look into doing kegel exercises.
Kegels exercises were prescribed to women who have experienced urinary incontinence or a weak pelvic floor (a hammock-like muscle that holds your reproductive organs, bladders, rectum).
For women who regularly exercise her PC muscles, this can help keep urinary incontinence at bay, child bearing will be a bit easier, it will enhance orgasms, and keep the vaginal walls supple and toned.
For men who practice flexing their PC muscle, this helps them to prolong their erections and experience longer love-making.
To locate your PC muscle, the easiest way is to go to the bathroom – practice stopping and letting go of the flow of urine. As a precaution, you should only do this to find and isolate the PC muscle. If you do this to often, you may risk getting a urinary tract infection.
1. Contract your pelvic floor muscles, hold the contraction for five seconds, then relax for five seconds. Try it four or five times in a row. Work up to keeping the muscles contracted for 10 seconds at a time, relaxing for 10 seconds between contractions.
2. Rapidly squeeze and release the muscles of the vagina 10 times in a row (this should take about t0 seconds). Fast contractions help your pelvic floor to cope with pressure, for example when you sneeze, cough or laugh.
