In brief: Kegel exercises

Some studies have shown that estrogens help strengthen the vaginal and pelvic floor muscles which help support the weight of your bladder.
However, prolonged estrogen therapy carries some risks. Also, it is beneficial to do Kegel exercises to strengthen these muscles. These consists of repeated contracting and relaxing these muscles. They are easy to do periodically throughout the day, anytime.
