Kegel Exercises Are For Men, Too
Kegel exercises have been helpful for women with urinary incontinence and have been used for years with favorable success.  Recently, these same exercises have been useful for men suffering from erectile dysfunction, urinary incontinence, and premature ejaculation.

Kegel exercises focus on the muscles of the pelvic floor, which supports the bladder, the prostate gland and the bowel and is made up of layers of muscle that stretch from the tailbone at the back to the pubic bone in front.  Exercising these muscles will increase the support of the prostate gland, the bladder, and improve the blood supply to the penis, and increase the tone of the urinary sphincter or the muscle that surround the urethra and helps control urination.

By regularly performing Kegel exercises men report improvement in their erections and even in the quality of their orgasms.  Perhaps the most dramatic finding was the improvement resulting from pelvic floor exercises compared to the use of Viagra >> the results were the same.

Approximately 10% of men will have some mild urinary incontinence after surgical removal of their prostate gland for prostate cancer.  This is usually temporary and subsides after several months.  The period of incontinence can be significantly shortened if the men practice Kegel exercises before the surgery and immediately after the surgery.

Pelvic floor rehabilitation is also effective for premature ejaculation, the condition when ejaculation occurs within seconds after vaginal penetration.  This is a condition that is very common and is a source of anxiety and disappointment for the man who has the problem and also for his partner.  Men who do Kegel exercises can expect a 50% improvement in time from vaginal penetration to ejaculation.
