All women and men should do Kegels.
One of the primary benefits include the strengthening of the pelvic floor, the pelvic floor may weaken due to the following reasons;
1. Lack of proper exercise.
2. After childbirth.
3. After menopause.
4. After pelvic surgery; a hysterectomy or bladder repair for example.
5. Being overweight or obese.
6. During a chronic cough.
Kegels include strengthening of the pelvic floor muscles which then provide support to the uterus, bladder and bowel. The great thing about them is that you can do it just about anywhere without anybody else knowing what you are doing. Other benefits include the restoration of the muscle tone of the pubococcygeus muscles which help women reduce and in some cases completely prevent their pelvic floor problems. They also help in preventing vaginal prolapse and uterine prolapse in women.
Although it might seem surprising but kegels are not restricted just to women, in fact now Kegel exercises are said to benefit both women and men. Let’s look at the kegel benefits for each sex independently.
