Make sure you read the first part, How to Know if Your Pelvic Floor is Losing its Tone.
How can you re-educate your pelvic floor? Firming up the pelvic floor can make a difference in many ways.
First, you should consult a physiotherapist specialising in the pelvic floor to evaluate your condition and to teach you strengthening exercises, such as Kegel exercises. Know how to do Kegel exercises properly is not easy, right ladies?
- Do Kegel exercises regularly during the postnatal period. Make it part of your daily routine.
- Avoid impact exercises for at least two months after childbirth.
- Avoid constipation.
- After a few months, some use geisha balls for perineal re-education. They contract muscles to keep them in the vagina while standing up. Geisha balls, even if they are better known for providing intimate pleasure, can help strengthen the vaginal and perineal muscle structures.
LadySystem® is an exciting alternative for all women throughout their life, and it is inexpensive. It’s been around for 30 years, and it also involves holding a cone inside the vagina to work and contract muscles to firm them, similar to Kegel exercises. Yes! You can learn to do Kegel exercises effectively this way. However, what makes the LadySystem® so interesting is that it comes with five same-sized cones that weigh differently. This allows you to progress over time. LadySystem® is more adaptive than geisha balls.LadySystem® has been recommended by doctors, midwives, gynecologists, urologists and physiotherapists for years now to help strengthen the pelvic floor.
To better understand the role and effectiveness of the LadySystem®, I did a clinical field experiment with eight women of different ages and different histories. While not scientific but more clinical and practical in nature, I am happy to share the 3-month experiment’s results. Each woman found it useful but in different ways. Please continue reading about strengthening the pelvic floor with my article about the LadySystem® experiment.
