In brief: Pelvic muscle kegel

Squeeze the muscles that you use to stop the flow of urine.
Hold for 10 seconds, then release. Repeat 10-20 times at least 3 times a day. Be careful not to squeeze the muscles of the leg, buttock, or abdomen.

Don't do it repeatedly while you are urinating.

In brief: Squeeze and relax

Start by contracting the muscles surrounding the vagina with a “pulling up” feeling, then release.
Repeat contracting tightly, holding & releasing. Think about going up in an elevator. As you reach each floor, draw up the pelvic floor muscles a little more until you reach your maximum tension. Then descend, floor-by-floor, gradually relaxing the muscle. Start off doing sets of 5. Hold each contraction for 5 seconds, then release.
