Pelvic Floor - Peak Performance

Pelvic Floor - Peak Performance - 'Life Without Limits' Week 2-7 September

Introduce the simple lifelong habit of pelvic floor exercise that will enhance your physical and sexual well being, now and in the future.

Pelvic Floor muscles are not the most talked about part of a woman's body, but they are one of the most important. Once they become weak problems such as incontinence (loss of bladder and bowel control), prolapse and loss of sexual feeling can occur. Regular life-long exercise is vital to keep them strong.

Lack of sensation during intercourse is a common complaint of women with weak pelvic floor muscles. Loss of bladder control and loss of sexual feeling can not only be curable with pelvic floor exercises, they are also preventable. You just have to know how. What often happens is that a woman gives up pelvic floor exercises as a waste of time because what they have been promised in their reading doesn't happen. This might be "your best orgasm ever" or "dry knickers". However, these things don't happen overnight and will never happen if you are doing the exercises incorrectly.

Pregnancy and childbirth is a time when pelvic floor exercise is crucial to maintain good tone. Problems can be avoided when women know how to keep their pelvic floors in top shape. There is no need to squeeze into leotards, put on training shoes or even get sweaty. You can do this anywhere and no one will know you are doing it. Your partner will definitely endorse your efforts. We must not forget him though. It is often assumed that pelvic floor exercise is for women only but men also benefit from good pelvic floor tone.

We have 20 motivational Pelvic Floor Workout Audio progammes to give away during the month of September. To be in to win a copy, phone the Bladder Helpline 0800 650 659. All callers will receive free pelvic floor exercise and other appropriate information. You can also register online through our website
