Definition


Kegel exercises also known as pelvic floor exercises are used, usually in women, to strengthen the pelvic floor muscles and also have the advantage of increasing sexual pleasure. A probe is inserted into the vagina and the woman contracts her pelvic muscles around it. Kegel exercises prevent the risk of prolapse in women. Men could reduce urinary leakage by working these muscles.
