Don’t Feel Sad About Your Weakened Pelvic Floor Muscles
Allow the Kegelmaster or a similar kegel exerciser to Eliminate Stress Incontinence and Bring Your Muscles Back to Great Shape
The pelvic floor muscles in women are prone to get weak, and probably are one of the most sensitive muscles. Most women complain of urinary incontinence, uterine prolapse, pain in the pelvic region and lack of vaginal tightness when these muscles lose their natural tone and strength.
There are a number of factors that cause these muscles to show poor performance. Pregnancy, childbirth, menopause and obesity are the reasons pelvic floor muscles get weak. Unlike other injuries or loss of muscle tone, weakness of the pelvic floor muscles has a stronger emotional component attached to it.
Lack of vaginal tightness in most cases results in reduced sexual desire and lack of successful orgasms. This sadly, results in reduced satisfaction for both partners. Stronger muscles of the pelvic floor help produce intense pleasure that results in improved orgasms. Improved orgasms also enhance sexual responsiveness and form a strong foundation for better foreplay.
Although the muscles making up the pelvic floor remain hidden, they do have a strong influence on your health and confidence. Weakness or poor strength of these muscles may result in loss of control over bladder movements. It is estimated that about 25 to 30 % of new moms suffer from stress incontinence. If you suffer the same, it can cause urinary leakage every time you cough, laugh or sneeze with force.
What is alarming is the fact that that more than 80% of women who face the problem of stress incontinence don’t get their problems treated. They feel depressed and helpless because of the embarrassment and few even risk their health by reducing the intake of water. Stress incontinence is not only an issue for new moms. One out of every three menopausal women is in a similar situation.
It is important that you continue to exercise to maintain the strength of your pelvic floor muscles. You can then achieve a lot more benefits and get rid of stress incontinence with stronger pelvic floor muscles. The stronger the muscles, the better you will feel. It is no longer necessary that you use methods such as surgery or medication to feel tighter. It is completely possible to overcome stress incontinence when you perform the Kegel exercises using the Kegelmaster or a similar device.
Pelvic floor muscle training is extremely effective in reducing problems such as stress incontinence and bladder prolapse. You don’t need to use any additional medication if you perform the training with progressive resistance. It is seen that resistance actually is the most important factor that influences successful outcome. The effect you desire with the Kegelmaster or a similar device is possible only when you use the right muscles and stick to your exercise program.
Studies also reveal that women who only used the Kegel exercises experienced fewer benefits than those who combined the exercises with progressive resistance. Since these muscles are bit difficult to locate, a better approach would be to practice muscle contraction first and then start with the exercises. It is vital that you know how to contract your muscles so you should try to restrict the flow of urine.
Your intention should be to first slow down the flow and then hold it for a few seconds. You will feel your vaginal muscles to get tight as you try to restrict the flow. These are the same set of muscles that need to be used when you perform the Kegel exercises.
Another effective way to identify your pelvic floor muscles is inserting a finger in your vagina followed by squeezing the surrounding muscles. If you contract your muscles correctly, you should feel your pelvic floor move upwards. During the contraction your vaginal muscles should remain tight. You should stay calm and breathe normally during the entire process.
In order to gain maximum benefits of the Kegel exercises, you should not attempt them without emptying your bladder or while you urinate. Doing the exercises at these times can actually make your muscles weak and increases the risk of urinary tract infections.
Once you perfect your technique and identify the right muscles, you should aim for at least three repetitions every day. One set can involve ten to fifteen contractions. You should begin using the Kegelmaster or a similar device with five contractions at minimum resistance.
Once you get used to the device, you can slowly increase the number of contractions and the level of resistance. You should contract the muscles, hold them for five seconds and then slowly release the pressure. You need to see how long you are able to hold the contraction.
It is possible that you feel a slight discomfort or abnormal sensation when you use the device for the first time. If you use the Kegelmaster or a similar device regularly, you can prevent the problem of stress incontinence from getting worse.
You can use the Kegelmaster or a similar device at anytime of the day you like but it is recommended that the exercise sessions are done at the same time every day. When you have a regular schedule, it is less likely that you skip or forget your exercise.
The Kegelmaster or a similar device gives the best results if you are faithful and stick to your exercise routine. You will be able to see a marked improvement in the form of less leakage. You can then enjoy jogging, running, laughing as stress incontinence is not going to show up. Last, you can also enjoy intimate moments with your partner as stress incontinence will no longer be an obstruction.
When the muscles at the bottom of your pelvis get strong and healthy, you gain better control over your bladder and muscle movements. It is time you say goodbye to the embarrassing and distressing stress incontinence.
Strengthening the pelvic floor muscles with dynamic progressive resistance provided by the Kegelmaster or a similar device eliminates the need of expensive incontinence products and surgery. You can produce stronger orgasms that will last longer. You also don’t need to limit your physical activity as you can solve the problems related to your leaking bladder effectively. The Kegelmaster or a similar device is all set to give you the desired effects and keep away the trouble for good.
