Seperti yang disarankan oleh health visitor yang datang melawat sewaktu aku dalam pantang dulu. Nampaknya aku kena start balik ni huhuhu

What are the pelvic floor muscles and why are they important?

The pelvic floor muscles form a broad sling between your legs from the pubic bone in front to the base of your spine at the back. They help to hold your bladder, uterus and bowel in place. These muscles also give you control over when you empty your bladder or move your bowels. If your pelvic floor muscles become weak, for example, as the result of being pregnant, they cannot do this effectively. An over-stretched or weak pelvic floor can lead to stress incontinence (where you might leak urine while coughing, sneezing, laughing or exercising) and decreased satisfaction during sex.

Later on, usually after the menopause, a weak or damaged pelvic floor can lead to prolapse - where the pelvic organs slip out of place and push up against the walls of the vagina. Stress incontinence affects up to a third of all new mothers and it is estimated that about 4 out of ten women over 50 show some signs and symptoms of prolapse. This all sounds very alarming. But the good news is that you can do something about it.
