Question: What is kegel exercise? Is it beneficial during pregnancy
Answer: Hello Kegel or pelvic floor exercises, are simple clench and release exercises which strengthen pelvic floor muscles. The pelvis is the region between the hips, which holds the uterus, bladder, small intestine, and rectum. The series of tissues and muscles that form a hammock or a sling at the bottom of your pelvis is called the pelvic floor. This hammock holds these organs in place and therefore controls the urine flow as well as the contraction of anal sphincter and vagina. A weak pelvic floor can cause the pelvic muscles to bulge and descend into the vagina, and this condition is called pelvic organ prolapse. It leads to pelvic pressure and leakage of feces and urine. Kegel exercises significantly avoid this situation. Benefits Of Kegel Exercises During Pregnancy: *If you have weak muscles, you may experience urine leakage, especially in the third trimester. sneezing, coughing, laughing, or jogging can lead to occasional leakage of urine. Performing Kegels will, therefore, lessen or prevent this condition Kegel exercises help you understand how to contract and relax your muscles in preparation for childbirth. Relaxing your muscles helps the baby move out of the womb smoothly, reducing any chances of tear or injury in the intimate area. women who indulge in pelvic floor exercises are known to experience shorter active phases of labor than those who do not exercise Performing Kegel exercises pregnant will improve the blood circulation in the genitals which will speed up the recovery of hemorrhoids (swollen or group of veins in the region of the anus) and episiotomies (surgical cut made at the opening of the vagina during childbirth) after childbirth. These exercises tone up your vaginal muscles, thereby boosting your sex drive.
