Particularly recommended for the postpartum uterine involution as a treatment to alleviate and prevent incontinence and strengthen the pelvic floor and helping to have more satisfying sex.
The pelvic floor can weaken during pregnancy, child birth and post partum. During pregnancy it is caused by the weight of the uterus. During birth it is caused by the baby stretching the vaginal walls as it passes through the vaginal canal and further aggravated if an episiotomy is carried out. During the post partum period if the weakening muscles are not exercised or carried out too vigorously the weakening of the pelvic floor muscles may be accentuated.
The menopause may bring hormonal changes causing the pelvic floor to become less flexible with weaken tissues. There are many other causes for weakening pelvic floor muscles for example high impact sport, genetic inheritance, obesity, chronic constipation and chronic coughing and stress.
