    Hi all!

    This is my first post in the forum. I’ve been reading different posts and threads and thought I’d post myself if I had difficulties, so here I am!

    I’ve started therapy around a month ago and would like to move to pelvic floor exercises. My therapist recommended to read ‘7 steps to pain free sex’, which is apparently a pretty widely known book in the vaginismus community.

    I’ve tried to follow the instructions for the exercises but it’s really hard to know whether I’m doing them right at all or just winging it.

    Does anyone know of videos/ easy instructions to follow to understand how to do pelvic floor exercises?

    Thank you

    Ags

    Agnese,

    Welcome to the forum! This is a great question and has inspired me to do more of these types of exercises, which I have really been lacking. Here are a few links:

    I also recommend looking on your phone’s app store for an app! Depends on your location (I’m currently UK-based so I think I have different ones) but I did a quick search found some highly-ranked ones in mine (Pelvic Floor Trainer, Emy – Medical Kegel Exercises, Easy Kegel, etc.). Personally I’ve been downloading apps for everything – yoga, meditation, fitness — and the accessibility helps me a lot!

    Good luck and hopefully others with more experience will also respond! I will keep you updated if I find anything else good on my journey to do more pelvic floor exercises!

    Hi Sks823,

    Thanks for the links and for the app tips! It’s actually a really good idea and I hadn’t thought of looking into my App Store. I definitely will use those 🙂

    I’m based in the UK as well, so I found the same ones! Thanks.
