Today's Sun newspaper broke the news of Russian gymnast Tatyana Kozhevnikova with the headline 'The woman with the world's strongest VAGINA!'

This takes pelvic floor exercise to the extreme, and the article has attracted a wide ranging reactions, from shock and awe: “You've got to see it to believe it!” to crude disbelief and in some cases, outright disgust, with one reader simply commenting: “Gross”.

Pelvic pain and pelvic floor tension can be extremely painful and can really affect your quality of life. The pelvic floor is like any other muscle in your body – it can go into spasm, become tight and become strained.
Pelvic pain can stem from your pelvic floor being too tight. Ironically women with a tight pelvic floor can suffer incontinence problems too. Pelvic floor muscles become tense leading to a great deal of pelvic pain and discomfort. Pelvic floor muscle pain is frequently misdiagnosed, however treatment can be very successfully and really improve your quality of life.
