Sorry to be so blunt, but this is sadly a reality for many women out there.
You may laugh about it, but while it can be comical to “pee a little bit” when you laugh hysterically or exercise or perform any strenuous movement, incontinence is very frustrating and embarrassing!
Incontinence is often an issue for women who have had children, but it can certainly happen to anyone. It comes down to the strength of your pelvic floor muscles. If these are weak from underuse, surgery or childbirth trauma, incontinence is a likely reality for you.
The good news is that you don’t have to live with this condition, you just need to work on strengthening those deep pelvic floor muscles so that you can say goodbye to incontinence.
While seeing a good physical therapist can be an incredible asset when dealing with incontinence, you can also take action on your own. God knows those darn kegel exercises that your doctor told you to do are not enough!
So here is a series of exercises that you can begin with:
Please be sure to take your time with these, and be patient with yourself. These may seem like small movements, but they are incredibly effective when done right. Repeat for about 5min morning and night to reap the rewards.
Please share your experience after trying these out for a few weeks.
Have a fantastic day!
