Are Kegels the answer to an awesome sex life? Does squeezing make for pleasing? A small study done in Brazil has found that Kegels might not be the solution what everyone thinks.
According to My Health News Daily, a group of 32 postmenopausal women did a pelvic floor exercise regimen for three months. Twice a week, they had clinician-guided group exercise sessions; three times a week they did Kegels at home.
At the end of the three months, the researchers at São Paulo University measured stronger pelvic muscles in the women, and surveys showed a change in their moods.
Before the workouts, about 44 percent of the women reported having anxiety, compared with 28 percent who said so afterward.
However, the exercise regimen did not improve the women's sexual function, based on their answers to questions about their sexual interest, excitement and satisfaction.
There are other factors to put into consideration too, and Dr. Leah Millheiser, director of the Female Sexual Medicine Program at Stanford University School of Medicine, says: "A woman may have a perfectly working vagina but have a horrible sex life because of other issues."
Kegels could be a cheap way to feel more relaxed with the result of 16% drop in anxiety instead!
