Pelvic floor exercises

Also known as: “kegel” exercises.

Using any muscle strengthens it and the same is true of your pelvic floor muscles. If you suffer from incontinence (or more famously, weak orgasms) then you might benefit from pelvic floor exercises to help control the flow of urination or increase sexual pleasure at the time of climax.

Another method for strengthening pelvic floor muscles is with electrical stimulation therapy. This technique sends a small electrical pulse to the area via electrodes placed in the vagina or rectum. The electic pulse forces the muscles to contract and relax thus improving muscle tone.
