New Fitness App Helps Women With Kegel Exercises

Update Date: Jul 23, 2013 04:54 PM EDT

Women who don't know how to do kegel exercises but want to strengthen their pelvic floor can now get a new app designed for pelvic floor fitness.

"Want to improve you pelvic floor tone? Reduce little leaks, improve your general health and wellbeing... not to mention your sex life? Then our iPhone application my pff - my pelvic floor fitness - is for you," according to the app's website.

Pregnancy, childbirth, surgery, aging and being overweight often weaken the pelvic floor muscles, a group of muscles that provide support for the uterus, bladder and other organs in the lower abdominal area.

Women who have weakened pelvic floors can suffer health problems like back pain, prolapsed bladder and uterus, abdominal pain and even lack of enjoyment during sex.

Developers of TENA, the free iPhone and Android application, say the main point of the fitness app is to remind women when and how to the exercises to strengthen their pelvic floor muscles.  The app also comes with videos, FAQs and a progress tracker.

"Improving your pelvic floor tone reduces your chances of experiencing little leaks and can, in time, entirely eliminate these little oooops moments from your life," TENA's website states.  "The my pff application explains and guides you through the exercises, ensuring you are doing everything correctly and in the most effective way."

"It allows you to track your progress and receive daily reminders to do your exercises at a time that suits you and fits in with your routine," the website adds.

"We want women to feel great every day and looking after your pelvic floor health is part of that," said a spokesman for TENA, according to the Daily Mail
