As we age, everything in our body becomes weaker. That is why we need to do specific exercises the keep our bones and muscles strong.
I recently have been noticing that when I sneeze, a small amount of urine comes out. Also, I feel like I have to go to the bathroom much more frequently. Not to mention, the ability to have sex has become more difficult. All of these issues have to do with the weakening of the pelvic floor.
Many factors can weaken your pelvic floor muscles, including pregnancy, childbirth, surgery, aging, excessive straining from constipation or chronic coughing, and being overweight. One in three women are affected by pelvic floor problems.
Maintaining a strong and healthy pelvic floor is vital in maintaining continence, reducing lower back pain, and helping with sexual intercourse.
I have heard throughout my life the importance of doing kegel exercises and ways to do them. The most common is to squeeze your pelvic floor for ten seconds, ten times a day. You can do these exercises at home or in the car. I wish that I could say that I have had success do them, but I just have not happened.
Recently, someone suggested a product that is dramatically strengthening my pelvic floor. I am so excited to share with you The Elvie Trainer. It is easy and weirdly fun! Like you are playing Frogger with your Vagina!!!
