At the bottom of your pelvis lies your pelvic floor, which is really a hammock of tissues and muscles. As your pelvic floor weakens over time, you begin to lose control of your bladder. Luckily, you can strengthen your pelvic floor by doing Kegel exercises. These simple clench-and-release exercises will help to strengthen the muscles that make up your pelvic floor.*
Kegel exercises are easy to do anytime, anywhere. Simply clench the muscles that stop you from urinating, squeeze for 3 seconds, then release and repeat 10 times. Just make sure to not do Kegel exercises while you are actually urinating. Over time, this can weaken your muscles and possibly cause a urinary tract infection.
