Pelvic Floor Muscle Exercises for Improved Strength,
Confidence, & Sexual Satisfaction

임산부 이미지

Women focus quite a bit of attention on improving muscle tone in the arms, legs, glutes, and abs, yet many neglect an equally important but invisible area—the pelvic floor.

These vital muscles sit under the uterus, bladder, and large intestine (bowel), and help with urine and bowel control. They’re also the muscles that contract during orgasm.

When the pelvic floor muscles become weakened, urine leakage and reduced control over the bowels can occur. This is why pelvic floor muscle training is so important, especially for women after childbirth.

In addition to improved bladder and bowel control, strengthening the pelvic floor muscles can lead to increased sexual sensation and orgasm potential. We’ll explore this and other benefits of improved pelvic floor muscle strength ahead.

Signs of a Pelvic Floor Problem

Some common signs of problems with the pelvic floor muscles include:

  • Accidentally leaking urine when you laugh, cough, sneeze, jump, or run.
  • Urgently need to go to the toilet, or not making it in time.
  • Pain in your pelvic area.
  • Painful sex.
  • A prolapse: in women this is often felt as a feeling of discomfort, heaviness, pulling, or dropping in the vagina.

Pelvic floor problems can occur when the muscles become stretched or weakened. They can also occur when muscles are too tight. Some women have tight pelvic floor muscles from a young age and may have difficulty relaxing the muscles—these individuals should pay special attention to relaxation of the muscles as part of pelvic floor training.

Pelvic Floor Muscle Strength and Sexual Satisfaction

There is evidence to suggest that improving pelvic floor muscle strength can lead to greater sexual function, and thus sexual experience in women. (our focus here is on women).

The pelvic floor (pubococcygeus) muscles run along the pelvic floor and surround the entire vagina. These muscles contract during orgasm, so it is not surprising that improving the strength of these muscles could improve the intensity of orgasm. Exercising the pelvic floor muscles leads to greater vascularity and increased blood flow in the pelvic region, which may increase awareness of the clitoral and vaginal sensations that lead to orgasm. Stronger muscles may naturally lead to stronger orgasms.

Kegel exercises may lead to enhanced sexual sensation by:

  • Relaxing the vaginal muscles, allowing the vagina to be more open; women who experience pain during sex or pelvic exams will be pleased to learn that Kegels can help with muscle relaxation.
  • Improving vaginal tone.
  • Improving blood circulation, which is key to:
    • Increasing sexual arousal, which can, in turn, improve lubrication.
    • Improving a woman’s ability to reach orgasm.

Psychological and Physiological Factors

Sexual satisfaction and function are inextricably linked to a person’s psychological state. Relationship troubles or discomfort with one’s body can make sexual stimulation difficult or impossible. Kegel exercises are not a panacea when it comes to improving sexual satisfaction, but improved muscle tone may enhance sexual experience in women and men who are healthy overall.

Hormones are another important factor in terms of sexual stimulation, function, and pleasure. Hormonal changes during menopause can affect a woman’s lubrication and thin the walls of the vagina, affecting stimulation and sexual response. Hormone therapy is effective for many women in reducing post-menopausal conditions.

Kegels Can Help with Urinary Incontinence

An important benefit of Kegel exercises is reducing urinary incontinence (UI), also referred to as stress incontinence. Any woman who has experienced urine leakage after coughing, laughing, or jumping knows how embarrassing and uncomfortable it can be.

Urinary incontinence is by no means a rare phenomenon—an estimated 23 - 63 percent of women experience it during pregnancy, while an estimated 6 - 29 percent experience UI after childbirth.

Bladder control exercises with or without a Kegel exercise device can be tremendously helpful in strengthening the pelvic floor muscles.

Our product hope they illuminate the advantages of strengthening the oft-ignored pelvic floor muscles. From reducing the likelihood of urinary incontinence to strengthening the muscles that can lead to enhanced sexual sensation and satisfaction, adding these exercises to your daily routine is easy and worthwhile.
