Kegels are exercises you can do to improve the muscle strength in your pelvic floor. They are an important part of your core muscle strength. They can help prevent urine leaks when laughing, sneezing or lifting, and they help support your pelvic organs.
First, find your pelvic floor muscles by:
- stopping the flow of urine while emptying your bladder;
- tighten your vaginal muscles and feel the squeeze with 2 fingers inserted in your vagina;
- tighten the muscles around your anus as if stopping the passing of gas.
This is just a test to find your pelvic floor muscles. Do not try to do Kegel exercises while urinating.
