Flex and relax . To get the feeling for these exercises, try stopping and starting the flow of urine while voiding and try to tighten your bottom as if you’re trying to hold back gas. Start by contracting the muscles surrounding the vagina with a “pulling up” feeling, then release the muscles and notice the relaxation. Repeat the exercise, contracting tightly, holding, and then releasing. More here: http://macobgyn.Com/drpl/node/74.
Squeeze muscles. Kegel exercises strengthen the pelvic floor muscles. You want to squeeze the muscles of your pelvic floor, not the muscles of the abdomen or buttocks, similar to when you are squeezing to try to stop the flow of urine. The best way to tell if you are doing them correctly is to insert one finger into the vagina. You should feel your muscles squeeze around your finger.
