Kegel exercise is also known as pelvic floor exercise. Regular routine will strengthen the pelvic muscle floor of a woman. Pelvic muscle supports the uterus, bladder, small intestine and rectum. These muscles are what you contract when you climax. They can weaken due to many factors such as pregnancy, surgery, aging, childbirth, constipation, chronic coughing, and even obesity.
How do you know if you have a weak pelvic muscle floor? Some indications are when you suddenly feel strong urge to urinate again after losing a large amount of urine, when you are leaking a few drops of urine every time you cough, sneeze or laugh, and when you leak stool. You will also know you have a weak pelvic muscle during sex, when you can’t control your pelvic muscles to climax.
