In brief: Varies

Kegel exercises are great but this may not be enough.
There are surgeries, medications and physical therapy available. Your obgyn, urologist or a urogynecologist can help find the right treatment plan for you.

In brief: 6 weeks

If the kegels are done correctly, typically improvement starts in 4-6 weeks, and by 12 weeks, most improvement will have been achieved.
The problem is that many women cannot do a pelvic muscle contraction or 'kegel' exercise the right way, because the muscles are damaged or too weak. Have your kegel checked by your gyne or a pt.
