STOP DOING KEGELS UNTIL YOU HAVE READ THIS.


OK, the reason we suggest this is because you may have an overactive pelvic floor and doing kegels could worsen the issue.

There are actually a lot of similarities with an underactive and overactive pelvic floor.

Let’s break it up.

…Overactive (Hypertonic):

  • Incontinence

  • Painful urination or defecation

  • Delayed start and slow urine flow

  • Inability or difficulty emptying the bladder and bowels

  • Frequent urination

  • Constipation

  • Painful sex (whether initial or deep penetration)

  • Inability or difficulty to achieve orgasm

  • Chronic pelvic or lower back pain even when sitting still

  • Pelvic tilt

  • Instability in the hip area

Now, let’s check out the most common symptoms of underactive pelvic floor:

  • Urinary and faecal incontinence

  • Frequent urination

  • Pelvic organ prolapse

  • Painful sex (whether initial or deep penetration)

  • Pelvic Girdle Pain (PGP)

  • Vaginal wideness

This is why It’s important to get your pelvic floor assessed.

Guys, you have pelvic floors too.

Book in for a pelvic floor assessment with a physio so you can start doing the right training whether it be down training for overactive or the right type of kegel training for an underactive.
