Tips For A Strong Pelvic Floor
How to strengthen your pelivc floor
Do you ever pee when you sneeze? Does it hurt to have sex? Or maybe you leak a little when you run or lift heavy? As embarrassing as it may be to talk about, pelvic floor issues are super common, but they’re not something you have to live with.
I'm chatting with Jocelyn Bohnet today, a women's health physical therapist that specializes in all things pelvic floor health: urinary and fecal incontinence, pain with intercourse, pelvic organ prolapse, tearing during delivery, and other pelvic issues. In this episode, we cover so much ground! We discuss:
- The general anatomy of your pelvic floor
- Bladder leakage and pain with intercourse
- All about kegels
- When to see a pelvic PT
- And so much more!
Jocelyn says, "God made our bodies, God made our pelvic floor, and God made sex to be wonderful...And we need to not be afraid to talk about an issue in our pelvic floor region just like we're not afraid to talk about neck pain."
