Pelvic Floor Muscle Exercises Help With Sexual Problems and Urinary Incontinence

New research shows that pelvic floor muscle exercises may bring about sexual improvement in women with urinary incontinence. 

The study, published online last month in the Journal of Sexual Medicine, involved 54 women with a mean age of 47 years. 

They women attended three physiotherapy session spaced 15 days apart.  Then, they followed a pelvic floor muscle exercise program at home for two more months. 

Overall, the women's sexual function improved after treatment, especially for those who were diagnosed with sexual dysfunction at baseline. The most significant gains were seen in the domains of sexual desire, arousal/excitement, and orgasm.
