According to experts, Kegel exercises can help strengthen the pubococcygeal muscle and other muscles of the pelvic diaphragm. Kegels can help men achieve stronger erections and gain greater control over ejaculation. The object of this is similar to that of the exercise in women, with weakened pelvic floor, to increase bladder and bowel control and sexual function. The exercises are one of the most effective ways of controlling urinary incontinence naturally.

Who can benefit from Kegel exercises?

Anyone, at any age, who suffers urinary incontinence or leaks urine. While the exercise mainly helps those with stress urinary incontinence, it can also help those with another common type, urge incontinence from overactive bladder. With urge incontinence, you have a sudden urge to urinate and don’t always make it to the bathroom. Men with urinary incontinence problems can do Kegel exercises, too. Studies on men have shown that these exercises improve urinary incontinence that can happen after prostate surgery.
