When it comes to her body, no one should know it better than her..
A Kegel exercise for the pelvic floor muscles.Feel the muscles in your vagina, bladder, or anus get tight and move up.Your thighs, buttock muscles, and abdomen should remain relaxed.
If you still are not sure you are tightening the right muscles:
Imagine that you are trying to keep yourself from passing gas.
Women can insert a finger into your vagina andor rectum. Tighten the muscles as if you are holding in your urine or stool, then let go. You should feel the muscles tighten and move up and down.. Perinometer can be inserted into the vagina to monitor PFM contraction and can be used to enhance the effectiveness of Kegel exercises (10)

Conservative therapies should be the first option for continence care. Studies have found that biofeedback can improve bladder control and reduce urinary incontinence by as much as 94 percent.
Despite the evidence supporting the use of biofeedback, it continues to be misrepresented and overlooked; many insurance carriers deny or restrict access to biofeedback training.
The delivery of behavior technique is not standardized and we have done research to launch the best technique for you.
Types of biofeedback – Electromyograph (EMG) – Surface EMG (SEMG) – Perineometer – Vaginal Weights/ Cone
Studies have shown that biofeedback obtained with vaginal cones is as effective as biofeedback induced through physiotherapy electrical stimulation. (13)

An electromyograph (EMG) uses surface electrodes to detect muscle action potentials from underlying skeletal muscles that initiate muscle contraction.
