What do you know about Kegel exercises? We’ve all heard that they are good for your sex life but what about our health? What are the benefits of Kegel exercises? Well, I have the scoop so keep on reading! Before we start, if you don’t know what Kegel exercises are, they are exercises you do to strengthen your pelvic floor muscles. Here are the benefits of Kegel exercises.
Support for your organs
When your pelvic floor muscles are strong, then your bowels and organs will remain in place. It is really important for your internal organs to not sink and remain where they are supposed to be.
When you feel like going to the toilet, your pelvic floor muscles keep the urine in control and up there. When the urge to urinate is present, healthy muscles will remain relaxed as the bladder fills up.
When the bladder is full, we have the urge to relieve ourselves. When these pelvic muscles are not strong, leakage will occur from laughing or coughing or jogging. So Kegel exercises are really important to control the bladder!
Strengthening those muscles really helps with strengthening the vaginal muscles. It’s really important to have strong vaginal muscles in order to carry the baby.
Kegel exercises also facilitate a normal and safe childbirth. After the birth, continuing with these exercises is really important as the muscles down there have been stretched out and need tightening again as urge incontinence can happen!
Men can also do these exercises! The benefits of Kegel exercises are not just for women! They can treat erectile dysfunction naturally as blood flow to the penis increases.
