Very little is known today about the pelvic floor and its importance in the exercise of sexuality and the general well-being of the female and male reproductive area. In this sense, let's start by clearly understanding what this is all about.
What is the pelvic floor?
It is a set of muscles, whose function is to support the organs of the pelvic system, such as the bladder, uterus, urethra and rectum. Likewise, it helps to provide stability to the areas of the spine and the pelvis. This is how it is understood that, when these muscles are not in adequate conditions, a weakening occurs and therefore the act of supporting the above-mentioned organs is significantly diminished, thus significantly altering their function. That is why it is important to know it and also to know the exercises to keep this area in optimal conditions for our health in general.
Why does the pelvic floor weaken?
There are many reasons over the course of a lifetime why the pelvic floor often weakens, and these include
- Weakness of muscle tissues and ligaments: This may be related to genetics or also linked to other conditions such as nerves or chronic coughing, which directly affect the muscles. They can also influence the use of specific medicines or infections.
- Playing sports: some activities can generate constant pressure on the pelvic area, which increases the risk of weakening that area. These activities may be related to playing sports such as football or weightlifting.
- Pregnancy and menopause: menopause is a process in which various changes occur in the female reproductive area and pregnancy causes weight gain inside the belly area and also causes a host of hormonal changes, all of which have a significant impact on the well-being of the pelvic floor.
The man and the pelvic floor
You may be thinking that this is a women-only issue, but the truth is that it is not, since men also have a pelvic floor in their reproductive system that performs exactly the same functions but, because they don't face activities such as labor, menstrual cycles, or some other intense hormonal variations, they are usually not affected to the same extent as women. However, it never hurts to know that you, as a man, can also exercise your pelvic floor.
In men, some of the causes that can interfere with the weakening of this set of symptoms are overweight, constipation or playing extreme sports. You can identify problems in the pelvic floor if you have problems with urinary or fecal incontinence or if you feel pain during erection or ejaculation.
