Strong pelvic floor muscles may make sex better for both women and their partners. During heterosexual intercourse, a woman’s ability to contract around her partner can intensify his sensations. Increasing blood flow to the area and making it easier to contract the muscles may also make sex more enjoyable for a woman. However, it should be noted that the evidence for this benefit is mostly anecdotal.
In addition, aging, childbirth, and obesity can all weaken these muscles and lead to incontinence. Training these muscles can help you prevent potentially embarrassing urine leaks.
Kegel exercises are a great help in training the pelvic floor, just like gaining many different muscles that require you to do many core exercises at once.
How to use Kegel balls?
Kegel balls could be used in the following way to strengthen the pelvic floor:
- Lie down in a comfortable position
- Slowly and steadily insert the kegal ball into your vagina;
- Tighten your pelvic floor muscles – feeling the ball lift as you squeeze;
- Keep the muscles contracted for around 5-10 seconds;
- Relax the muscles, give yourself a short rest, and repeat the squeeze;
- Try to aim for 3 sets of 10 repetitions or as many as you can handle.
Please don’t expect immediate results because it’s a long process.
Keep up your progress by regularly tracking and increasing your repetitions to help gradually strengthen the pelvic floor muscles.
