Kegel Exercises and the Importance of the Pelvic Floor

Maybe you’ve heard your yoga instructor mention it. Maybe you’ve overheard women talking about it. Maybe your doctor mentioned it to you after you had your baby. But, do you really know what you need to do to strengthen your pelvic floor muscles and why you should do it?

From getting back in to shape after giving birth to helping with incontinence issues to enhancing or assisting a woman in reaching orgasm, strengthening the kegel muscles can have numerous benefits. The Mayo Clinic and MedAmour offer useful information on how and when to perform kegel exercises. MedAmour offers many useful tools such as kegel balls, bars and exercisers from manufacturers such as InControl, Pelvix and Natural Contours who are dedicated to providing tools to assist women in strengthening their pelvic floor so they can have, not only a more enjoyable sex life, but also get back to enjoying a life free of potential incontinence issues (anyone who has attempted any high impact activity after pregnancy can attest to this!).

Other manufacturers such as Lelo, Je Joue, Aneros and Fun Toys also offer kegel balls that not only strengthen the pelvic floor but also focus on creating a more fulfilling and pleasurable sexual experience.
