How To Recover Weak Vaginal Muscles?
Good afternoon Doctor,
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Mothers who have been pregnant and give birth normally (vaginal delivery) are indeed more susceptible to uri incontinence, which is an inability to control urination. As a result, for certain conditions, especially where there is an increase in pressure in the abdominal cavity, for example when coughing, changing body positions, and lifting heavy loads, often there is urine that goes out unnoticed. Apart from the weakness of the vaginal muscles and pelvic floor muscles in pregnancy and childbirth, this condition is also influenced by other factors, for example obesity, lack of exercise, hormonal fluctuations, aging, and so on.
Weakness of the vaginal muscles and pelvic floor muscles, not only can make you experience uri incontinence. Your risk for miscarriage, premature labor, uterine prolapse (descending uterus), recotocele (rectum that drops down protrudes into the vaginal opening), also vesicocele (bladder that drops down protrudes into the vaginal opening will be even greater. this, of course, will be even more difficult handling.
Handling of mild vaginal muscle weakness may be done in a conservative way, for example through Kegel exercises, maintaining ideal body weight, the use of special braces, physiotherapy, and so on. To overcome uri incontinence, your doctor can also give you several types of medication while doing toilet training with special procedures and tools. However, for more severe cases, it may also require other therapeutic modalities, including laser, surgery, etc. as your doctor recommends.
Of course, without checking your condition directly, we are not authorized to determine what treatment is best for your current condition. However, if you are doubtful or confused, do not hesitate to look for a second opinion by going back to the doctor or other obstetrician, huh?
The first steps you should take:
Diligently doing Kegel exercises every day, balance it also with other pelvic and vaginal tightening exercises
Do not get used to hold urination
Always keep your sex organs clean
Reduce the habit of drinking caffeinated, fizzy drinks, stay away from alcohol
Maintain your ideal body weight
Don't overexert physical activity
