All of these forms of urinary incontinence can be anxiety-causing for the person affected, but fortunately in many cases no surgery or medication is required. Many people can resolve their incontinence problems with some easy exercises that strengthen the pelvic floor muscles, as in many cases the ultimate cause of the incontinence is a lack of pelvic floor strength.
Strengthening the pelvic floor provides critical support to the sphincter muscle, helping to keep the bladder closed and combatting stress incontinence. It can also assist with helping you empty your bladder entirely, the lack of which is often the cause of overflow incontinence. Stronger muscles are also better controlled muscles, so sufferers of urge incontinence should also experience a reduced urge to urinate.
A passive way to strengthen the pelvic floor muscles is through the use of a vaginal weight – a small weight worn internally in the vagina that provides gentle resistance training. People suffering from incontinence have experienced great success with the MEDIball Secret, helping to tone the pelvic floor in a safe, easy and hygienic way. Discreet and externally invisible, they’re the perfect choice for women who don’t have the time for specific exercises as they can be used during any daily activity.
