I stop my urine stream, hold it for a few seconds,start again, stop, start...
At first I could barely stop it, but the more often you do it, the easier it gets. It's made a difference for me.

Re: ?? Kegel excises

Tighten all the muscles in your pelvic floor as if you are stopping your urine stream. Hold that for a few seconds. Then, tighten things higher up; imagine that there is an elevator going from the bottom of your vagina high up into your abdomen. Then, beginning relaxing from top to bottom, relaxing so completely that you imagine the elevator going into the basement. Repeat the tightening, gradually "taking the elevator up to the top floor" again. If you can stop and start your urine at will, your pelvic floor is in good shape. If not, you should aim to do 100 Kegels a day (in sets of 10).

Once you get used to them, you can do them anywhere. It's not only good for your health (prevents prolapse), but some women find it increases their sexual pleasure. Hope this helps!

My mother stuck e's on the end of every name she could. Have you ever read "Anne of Green Gables"? She was adamant that her name was "Anne with an e".
