Rachael’s advice on Pelvic Floor exercises
We all know that we should do our pelvic floor exercises (especially us mothers) but for most women that can be hard because they don’t actually know how to do them. Well I’m going to explain exactly how to do them and then tell you one of the most effective times to start trying them.
Ok, the best way to experience the sensation of correctly doing your pelvic floor exercises is to sit on the loo and mid wee, try to stop your flow. It feels like an inner tightening, like you are lifting the muscles up and contracting them. Please don’t try to do this every time you are on the loo as it is not good to keep interrupting your urine flow but do it once or twice to start so you are sure you know exactly how it feels.
The goal is that you tighten up these muscles so that sex feels more intense for you and your partner. Having strong pelvic floor muscles will also help prevent incontinence later on in life. Start off by doing ten reps and holding your muscles for 5- 10 seconds at a time. As you build your muscles you will be able to do more reps and hold for longer periods of time. Do your ten reps every day adding more reps as you go, after the first week. You will find that after just a week or two your muscle tone will have improved.
Now for the best time to do them. Try doing them after you have an orgasm. The reason I recommend this is all your muscles are already contracting and everything feels really sensitive down below so you are much more aware of the contracting feeling. Doing them after an orgasm can also extend your actual orgasm giving you more pleasure so it’s a win win situation! Exercise has never been so enjoyable!
All my love
