Heloooo :wavey:

I remember an "exercise" product called the Kegel Master. It is used to tighten up your pelvic floor muscle.

Also, there is a fab thing called "Smart Balls" which is alot cheaper. Essentially its 2 small discreet weighted balls joined together and covered in either latex or plastic. You can insert these to use for pelvic floor exercises.

It should be possible to exercise your pelvic floor without these aids if u wish, by tensing that muscle for a few mins each day.

I am sure that your GP can advise :)

I hope that this has helped somewhat!
