Pelvic muscle exercises (Kegel) are used to strengthen or retrain the nerves and muscles of the pelvic floor. Regular daily exercising of the pelvic muscles can improve and even prevent urinary incontinence. It is recommended that you do 4 to 8 sets of 10 squeezes over the course of each day. You may have to keep at it for several weeks before you may notice any difference. Over a period of time, your pelvic muscles will strengthen and your symptoms of urgency or frequency may decrease.
Helpful Instructions for Doing Kegal Exercises
When you start, do the exercises while lying down. As you get stronger, do an exercise set sitting and standing.
