At Kegel8, we speak to ladies every day who are suffering the effects of a weak pelvic floor, and think that a weak pelvic floor only affects women of a certain age and who have had several children. What people don’t realise is that the pelvic floor is like any other muscle in the body, and if you don’t exercise, then it will get weaker. Read on for Dr Daniel Stein’s fact which will really make you think…
Dr Daniel Stein’s Pelvic Floor Fact To Really Make You Think
One thing that I always tell ladies who I speak to on the Kegel8 helpline is: “the pelvic floor is like any other muscle in your body, and if you don’t exercise, then it will get weaker.” Because the pelvic floor muscles are on the inside of the body, and we can’t really see from the outside if our pelvic floor muscles are weak, then we tend to neglect them.
Dr Daniel Stein, MD, is an expert in Obstetrics and Gynaecology, and his advice really makes us think:
“Without regular resistance exercise, those muscles [pelvic floor] lose 80 percent of their strength by the time a woman turns 65.”
And that’s before we turn 65! The good news is, with regular pelvic floor exercise, such as with a Kegel8 Ultra 20 Pelvic Toner
, or resistance exercise with a Kegel8 Trainer
or Kegel8 Exercise Cones
, you can avoid your muscles getting weaker, and enjoy the benefits of a stronger and healthier pelvic floor. What’s more, if you already suffer some degree of pelvic floor weakness, due to your age, childbirth or something else, you can rebuild the strength in your pelvic floor with regular exercise too, just as you can with any other muscle in the body.
