Kegel Exercises For Men

1 What are Kegel Exercises for Men?

Urinary incontinence in men can be caused by a weak urinary sphincter, a bladder that doesn’t contract or an overactive bladder.

Kegel exercises for men help strengthen muscles below the bladder to help control urination and to improve and sometimes even completely regain bladder control.

The exercises are very easy, but first, a man must know which muscles to target and the easiest ways to do it is while urinating. During urination, the man must try to stop or slow down the flow of urine without tensing the muscles in buttocks, abdomen, and legs.

When a man can do that, he has found the muscles so he can do this exercise: contracting them counting slowly to five and then releasing them also counting slowly to five. A man must repeat this exercise 10 times, three times a day.

The exercise can be done in standing position or at the start is the best to do it lying down. It requires patience but results can be seen in three to six weeks, sometimes even sooner.

If the man does not see any change in more than six weeks, he should talk to a doctor or urologist because perhaps he did not locate the right muscles, so the doctor can help.

It is very important that men do the exercise regularly, every day and pays attention to progress (less or fewer leaking).
