I have struggled with stress incontinence since I gave natural birth to my son 15 years ago. I did Pelvic Muscle Rehabilitation(PMR - through my OBGYN) and kegels multiple times a day. I had surgery (a bladder lift and uterus removed). This did help somewhat but over the last 15 years the problem has gotten worse. I have been doing PMR again for the last 5 weeks which measures the strength of your kegel and also does electrical stimulation of the vaginal muscles. I wasn't seeing much improvement until I got this book and then ordered the ball and band to be able to perform the exercises. WOW! I have also begun using the abductor and adductor weight machine at my gym in the way the ball exercise is described in the book. As suggested, I have been doing the exercises 3x a day (they take about 15 minutes). What a difference. I haven't told my OBGYN yet but last time I went for PMR they told me that they saw good improvement. I had been doing the exercises for only 1.5 weeks. I am going to buy her the book and give her a copy.
The exercises are basically physical therapy for the entire pelvic girdle and not just specifically the kegel muscles. They are not hard to do at all. And once you have regained your pelvic strength then you can begin the maintenance exercises which are less time consuming. Where there is a will there is a way...

The author understands how frustrating it can be to be told to do Kegels and not get results, and offers a solution. The book is easy to use and lays things out in a clear format.

Everyone has heard of Kegels but that was only where physical retraining for urinary incontinence began ... things have progressed since the 1960s. And these exercises have all the same powerful effects on pelvic muscles and sex that the original Kegels did.

If you or someone you know has incontinence problems, this is the book for you. Kegel exercises are very out dated and don't help in the least! This book teaches you to do easy to follow exercises for the muscles that support the pelvic floor and it really does work! I know a lady who went from using depends to using 3 pads a day to using only one pad and she said to me one morning "I've stayed dry for 3 days!" Another lady I know was able to resume enjoable activities because she regained control of her bladder, dignity, and life. Try it, you won't regret it.
