Kegel8 has shared the following information on how to take care of your pelvic floor through strengthening exercise and diet.
1 in 3 women will experience a pelvic floor issue during their lifetime, yet 70% of those do not seek advice or treatment.
The pelvic floor provides support to the bladder, bowel and uterus. Women with weak pelvic floors are more likely to suffer from stress incontinence, urinating a little unintentionally during exercise or when they cough or sneeze.
A weak pelvic floor can impact vaginal muscles causing a decrease in sensitivity that makes sexual relations less satisfying. Childbirth or hormonal changes following menopause can sometimes increase the likelihood of pelvic floor issues.
Exercise and diet can help keep your pelvic floor healthy
