Many factors affect the tone of your pelvic floor muscles without even noticing it. Whether it is a question of posture or just because you carry heavy loads on a daily basis, it is important to quickly adopt the right reflexes and protect your pelvic floor when you make efforts.
There are also a multitude of other factors that damage your pelvic floor and that you can’t fight against. Pregnancy, age and aging of the tissues, the arrival of menopause and hormonal decline are some of them.
What are the right reflexes to adopt to preserve my pelvic floor?
The answer is quite simple: you need to exercise regularly to maintain and strengthen your pelvic floor! You have to consider your pelvic floor as you consider your abdominal, gluteal, back and lumbar muscles, for example.
Does the phrase “Oh, I’ve got time, I’ll take care of it later” mean anything to you? It may seem that exercises to tone your pelvic muscles take time, but that’s not true. A few minutes a week is enough.
If you follow our advice, you won’t even realize that you’re working your pelvic floor. And guess what? The benefits are not negligible!
When is a good time to work on your pelvic floor?
There is no right or wrong time to do your exercises. The trick is to do it regularly and to maintain your regularity over time:
In your car at the red light, at the office, sitting in your chair, when you are breastfeeding or on your sofa in front of the TV, you can do these exercises whenever you want, wherever you want. To do so, follow these instructions:
- Sit up, straighten up and arch your back slightly.
- Take a deep breath and blow through your mouth without pinching your lips until you feel your stomach go in.
- Contract your pelvic floor, vagina and anus upwards
- Aim to achieve 10 10-second contractions (to achieve this, go gradually!). Start by increasing the number of contractions and when you manage to do 10 powerful contractions, try to hold each one for 10 seconds.
After 2 weeks, your pelvic floor will be more toned to start the next exercises. This is a practical exercise for those who do not have much time to devote to their rehabilitation.
What are the benefits of a muscular and toned pelvic floor?
A fuller sex life
You often hear about it, but a more toned perineum boosts the pleasure, allows you to have more sensations and feel orgasms more intensely. Indeed, a muscular perineum makes it easier to reach orgasm, whatever the position, alone or accompanied. So why deprive yourself of it?!
Enjoy yourself and your partner
A toned pelvic floor is a tighter pelvic floor. Your vagina will surround your partner’s intimacy more intensely and you will drive him crazy about you! You will share a feeling and a moment of complicity and pleasure just the two of you.
Be incredible !
Rehabilitating the pelvic floor is a sport. By doing your exercises, you not only stress your pelvic floor, but also your thighs, buttocks and abdominals. And yes! We’re definitely getting sexier because we’re losing tummy and we’re bulging our buttocks and slimming down our thighs. What more could you ask for?
Taking care of the pelvic floor improves blood circulation, oxygenates the tissues and thus facilitates natural lubrication. The more you learn to contract your pelvic floor, the more it will happen naturally, increasing blood flow and creating lubrication naturally. This will make intimate intercourse easier. No more need for industrial lubricant. Nothing better than natural.
Who has never felt a few drops in their panties after a loud laugh or a sneeze? You often hear about bladder weakness, but it doesn’t hurt to remember that it can be due to a loose pelvic floor. To avoid these uncomfortable moments, take daily care of your pelvic floor and don’t forget to train it!
