Make sure you take a pee before your kegels and empty your bowels completely. When you start out, strive to clench for 3 seconds and then relax for 3 seconds. As time goes on, work your way up to clenching for 10 seconds and then relaxing for 10 seconds.
Setting aside 10 minutes for kegel exercises everyday will help make your pelvic floor super strong. Think of the pelvic floor like a sling or hammock. The more you exercise it, the tighter it gets. This helps hold everything in place including your bladder, bowels, and uterus.
Remember, like everything else, this takes patience! Don’t expect to see results immediately, especially if you’re experiencing bladder issues. It takes months for some people to start seeing results. Make kegels a part of your self-care.
