The stress that performing Kegel exercises puts on your vaginal muscles is why Kegel exercises may not work. Your vagina, uterus, and pelvis are all connected to your spine, lower back, buttocks, and anus. An important intermediary between your spine and your vaginal muscles is the sacrum. The sacrum connects the two and plays a role in transmitting pleasure signals from your vagina and clitoris to your brain. So when you do Kegel exercises, you are not only toning your vaginal muscles. You are also affecting every muscle and nerve core your vaginal muscles are connected to–the sacrum, anus, buttocks, and spine. These muscles and elements of your nervous system are not meant to be pulled in the way that Kegel muscles violently pull inward. The entire system weakens from Kegel exercise routines, and women are left wondering what they did wrong.
But Do Kegel Exercises Really Work?
Up until now, no one has challenged the idea that Kegel exercises work to increase your sexual desire and enjoyment, tighten your vagina, cure urinary incontinence, and prevent prolapse. However, recently women began being honest with themselves and with their doctors about the fact that kegel exercises were not working for them. In response to this, a small group of progressive researchers started asking, Do Kegel Exercises Really Work? The reason women do Kegel exercises vary. Kegel exercises are done to tighten the vagina, to increase the libido, to increase orgasm intensity, to increase sexual desire and enjoyment, to stop urinary incontinence, and to prevent prolapse. People believe that Kegel exercises are able to help with all of these sexual and reproductive problems because performing Kegels strengthens the vaginal muscles responsible for all of this.
