How a Stronger Pelvic Floor Can Significantly Improve Your Sex Life

December 10, 2019

The vagina is surrounded by the muscles of the pelvic floor, which
are critical for better sex. Since the pelvic floor muscles contract
during orgasm, learning how to contract them can lead to more intense
orgasms. A strong pelvic floor can also improve blood circulation to the
vagina, which can increase sexual arousal.

How do pelvic floor muscles get damaged or weakened?

Pelvic
floor muscles can be damaged by childbirth, weakened from straining
when using the restroom or from incorrectly lifting heavy weight.

Do Kegel exercises help strengthen the pelvic floor?

Kegel
exercises consist of contracting and relaxing the muscles that form
part of the pelvic floor. Kegel exercises can be helpful, but women are
not always aware if they are performing them correctly. Also, Kegel
exercises are not for everyone. Women who experience pelvic pain should
not do Kegel exercises and should follow up with their Ob/Gyn or a
Pelvic Floor Physical Therapist.

What is the best way to strengthen the pelvic floor?

The
best way to train the pelvic floor is to engage the pelvic floor and
the core simultaneously. Pelacore specifically targets the pelvic core,
allowing for increased pelvic floor muscle recruitment by working
synergistic muscles.

What other options are available for strengthening the pelvic floor?

Gynecologists
can suggest special pelvic-toning devices that can be inserted into the
vagina which can help patients practice Kegels properly. If you feel
you’re having trouble with the technique and need one-on-one guidance,
ask for a referral to a Pelvic Floor Physical Therapist.

What about vaginal rejuvenation?

Vaginal
rejuvenation is a surgical or laser procedure meant to tighten the
vaginal walls and possibly make the opening of the vagina smaller.
Supporters of these procedures state that they can enhance sensitivity
and sexual satisfaction, but these surgeries are not backed by the
American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists. There isn’t enough
data yet to determine whether vaginal cosmetic surgeries are safe and
effective. They can cost thousands of dollars and like any surgery, they
carry risk.
