As women age their pelvic floor muscle gets weaker as a result of having children, entering menopause, pelvic surgeries or long-term high impact exercise. The muscles around the urethra are no longer able to hold back urine when pressure such as laughing, coughing or sneezing is exerted on the pelvic floor. This is a condition that can be helped by exercising the pelvic floor muscles to make them stronger.
The Athena Pelvic Muscle Trainer enables you to strengthen your pelvic muscles in the privacy and convenience of your own home.
Pregnancy and childbirth place a tremendous amount of stress on the pelvic floor muscle. In addition, once the baby is born there is constant lifting. Not only do you lift your child for several years, you also lift strollers, car seats, etc. This places a constant strain on the pelvic floor and increases weakness unless you exercise it. Women often start to experience more leaks as their child grows.
Any pelvic surgery can also weaken pelvic floor muscles. Pelvic floor exercise can help them regain their strength.
The Athena Pelvic Muscle Trainer is discreet to use, even when caring for your children. It automatically does Kegels for you so you don’t have to concentrate on doing them.
If you are already using protection or taking medication for incontinence remember that these methods do not work to help the underlying cause they only mask or deal with the symptoms.
The Athena Pelvic Muscle Trainer naturally strengthens the pelvic floor and has no side-effects!
The Athena Pelvic Muscle Trainer® is the only patented-wireless Pelvic Floor Electrical Stimulation (PFES) device that delivers mild electrical stimulation to the pelvic floor muscles to make them contract and relax. It automatically does Kegels for you.
Your pelvic floor muscle is actually a series of strong, flexible muscles that support your bladder, womb and bowel. These muscles are rooted from back to front and side to side, rather like a hammock. Every step, jump, laugh, cough and sneeze we make puts pressure on our organs and our pelvic floor. With so many aspects of day to day life applying pressure on our pelvic floor, it is important that this muscle area is strong and in good condition. These muscles hold up 9kg of organs and also help maintain normal bladder control.
Your Pelvic Floor is a muscle and, like all voluntary muscles, it needs regular exercise to keep it strong. With age, excess weight, pregnancy, menopause, post surgery, bad habits or even good habits, including lots of high impact sports, your Pelvic Floor may become stretched and weak.
When this happens your internal organs are not fully supported; you may experience diminished sensation during intercourse and embarrassing issues with lack of control of your bladder.
You might find that you start waking up in the night or that you have to rush home when shopping or doing the school run. Or you might find that if you laugh, cough or do vigorous exercise, that a tiny bit of moisture leaks out. You may find your sex life is less satisfying for both you and your partner or that you have diminished sensation.
These are the early signs to warn you that you need to take action. It is never too early or too late to start exercising your pelvic floor.
