How do lax pelvic floor muscles affect a woman?
Mehmet Oz, MD, Cardiology, answeredWeak Pelvic Muscles: The pelvic floor is a web of muscles that holds up all of our reproductive organs. As women age, gain weight, or have babies, these muscles stretch out. That laxity makes it harder to carry out and experience the intense muscular contractions and release of tension that is paramount to achieving orgasm.
How are women affected by the pressure to conceive?
Good In Bed answeredNo matter how excited a woman is about the prospect of being pregnant, she can experience just as many sexual roadblocks as her male partner. Sex on demand can be tricky for her -- even if she’s the one doing the demanding. For example, it’s easy for women to get in the goal-oriented, baby-making mindset, where sex is simply a means to an ends. That can mean that she may not even be in the mood when she initiates sex, but is guided instead by ovulation. Yet a lack of desire can lead to additional problems, like decreased lubrication and difficulty climaxing. It’s important to devote the same amount of attention to foreplay and arousal when trying to conceive that you normally would.
Where can I get fitted for a bra?
Joy Larison , NASM Elite Trainer, Fitness, answered
Surprisingly, most women aren't wearing the correct bra size. I believe I recently heard only one in ten women is wearing her correct size. If you are constantly readjusting the straps, or pulling at it, you need to see a professional. Many department stores have specialists in the lingerie sections that have gone through training in this area. I have had it done at JC Penneys and at Dillard's stores. Hope this helps!
