Kegel exercises are performed by tightening your muscles as if you are trying to stop the flow of urine. You should hold the contraction for approximately five seconds, and then relax. This maneuver should be repeated about ten times. You should do this many times each day.
If you have difficulty determining what muscles to contract, there are methods to help with this. These include cone-shaped inserts that can be placed into the vaginal canal, biofeedback therapy, and electrical stimulation. The advantage of Kegel exercises is that they can be done any time and anywhere.
