Are Kegel Exercises really that Beneficial?
Posted in: HEALTH
Some women often complain about overall weakness that occurs after birth, while others have poor bladder control and pee while sneezing, laughing or coughing.
It’s all caused by the weakness of the pelvis muscles, which is why Kegel exercises are so crucial for women of all ages, whether you’re expecting a child or planning a baby in several years.
It often happens that without daily physical practices, the muscles of your pelvis may lose their elasticity and eventually grow weaker, which results in the worsened function of retaining the organs of your pelvis as well as worsening the quality of sex.
Kegel exercises were developed to strengthen and improve the overall state of your pelvis as well as prevent disorders in your pelvis area.
In particular, Kegel exercises improve blood circulation in the genitals, maintain sexual health and prevent inflammations of the pelvis muscles.
Thanks to daily Kegel exercises, a woman is able to control the process of orgasm and gets much more vivid sexual pleasure during intercourse.
Kegel exercises are also beneficial for future moms, as they train the muscles responsible for giving birth and promote an effortless and painless childbirth.
By doing Kegel exercises in the antenatal period, women can learn to control the muscles responsible for child bearing, which will make the 9 months of bearing a child substantially easier.
As you may be aware, the pelvis muscles tend to lose elasticity during pregnancy due to the extreme pressure put by the constantly growing womb and the tissues that stretch out and lose their elasticity and flexibility.
And after giving birth, those simple yet highly effective Kegel exercises help to recover the tissues that had endured extreme stress during pregnancy.
So how are Kegel exercises done?
- Do quick but tense contractions and relaxations of the muscles for 10 seconds, then rest for 10 seconds, and then do 3 more such repetitions.
- Do contractions and relaxations of the muscles for 5 seconds, then rest for 5 seconds, and do 9 reps total.
- Now contract the muscles for 30 seconds, then rest for 30 seconds and do 2 more such reps.
- And then again back to the first stage: do quick but tense contractions and relaxations of the muscles for 10 seconds, then rest for 10 seconds and then do 3 more such repetitions.
That’s it. Daily Kegel exercises won’t take up much of your time, but the benefits – whether you’re looking to improve your sex life, prepare yourself for pregnancy or improve the overall state of your pelvis muscles – are surely worth it!
