  • Pelvic floor exercises are vital for all women. For younger women wanting to prepare their body for pregnancy (and get back in shape afterwards), sportswomen who perform high impact exercises such as running and all women who want to avoid the embarrassment of those not-so-funny 'laughter leaks'. Of course the great side effect of regular pelvic floor exercise is a more orgasmic love-life (and a happier partner because he enjoys the tighter sensation too) resulting in increased interest and sales at record levels.

    Clinical research published in the British Medical Journal compared pelvic floor exercises, vaginal weights and electro-stimulation in a randomised trial. The research recommended that pelvic floor exercise should be the first choice of treatment for genuine stress incontinence because simple exercises proved to be far more effective than electro-stimulation or vaginal cones.

  • Sex toys known as Ben Wa or geisha balls, which were originally designed centuries ago to improve sexual sensation, can strengthen your pelvic floor muscles. This is because the muscles you use to keep the weighted balls in place in the vagina are the same muscles you are working in pelvic floor exercises.

    Clinical trials of a progressive resistance vaginal exerciser concluded that the device was as effective as supervised pelvic floor muscle training, the gold standard treatment of the UK NHS where patients are referred to a specialist continence advisor for one on one training over a three-month period. The report also noted that the device can help overcome the fundamental weaknesses associated with pelvic floor muscle exercises (PFME), i.e. poor training, lack of patient confidence and poor compliance with the exercise recommendations.

    Incontinence (leaking from your bladder or bowel) and prolapse can be distressing at any time. Unfortunately leaking is common during and after pregnancy. Pelvic floor muscle exercises are the main treatment. Sometimes it can be difficult to feel your muscles after giving birth, or to know if you're squeezing correctly.
