How do I know I’m exercising the right muscles?

You can establish if the muscle group is the right one by briefly stopping the urine stream. Do this very quickly and don’t consider it to be a regular exercise, because that way you are confusing the bladder emptying reflex and you are also making the emptying difficult.

Women can check if they are exercising the muscle tension properly by inserting a finger into the vagina.

Before you start exercising the pelvis floor muscles, it is necessary to discuss it with the experts at the SimBex Counselling Centre (0800 206 206) or your nurse, your doctor or your urologist.
