Frequently Asked Questions


Can a woman be too old for kegels?

Women are never too old for kegels. The body can build muscle mass, strength, and control at any age.

Some older women may be too unwell for kegels, if they are frail or cognitively challenged; health is a factor, but age alone is never a factor.

Can kegels help if prolapse is severe?

Yes. With severe prolapse, complete disappearance of the prolapse is unlikely, but correct kegel technique can improve prolapse and relieve symptoms by creating better anatomical support for the prolapse.

Correct kegel technique increases the muscle mass and muscle tone of the pelvic floor, and makes the urogenital hiatus — a natural gap in the muscle — smaller. These muscle changes create better support for the pelvic organs.

Can kegels help if urinary incontinence is severe?

Yes. Kegels will benefit different women differently depending on the cause of incontinence, and whether there’s any muscle or nerve damage involved. But even severe incontinence can improve, particularly if stress incontinence is the cause.

Can kegels help any type of prolapse — cystocele, rectocele, enterocele or prolapsed uterus?

Yes. Women in the Kegel Queen Program have seen improvement with each type of pelvic organ prolapse: cystocele, rectocele, enterocele, and prolapsed uterus.

Can kegels help after a hysterectomy, or after prolapse repair surgery?

Yes. Women in the Kegel Queen Program have seen prolapse and incontinence improve with correct kegel technique regardless of whether they’ve previously had surgery.

Is the Kegel Queen Program appropriate for a woman who is considering surgery in the future?

Absolutely. For women preparing for surgery, correct kegel technique has powerful benefits. Kegels increase circulation to the pelvic floor, which may increase circulation to the surgical site as well, depending on the procedure. Kegels optimize anatomical support, to help the pelvic organs stay in their correct position after surgery. And kegels help to minimize urinary incontinence, which is often an unwanted outcome of pelvic surgery.

Can the Kegel Queen Program help women who have been through physical therapy?

Yes. Kegel Queen members who have seen excellent physical therapists find that the program enhances the benefits of PT and provides valuable additional training. Kegel Queen members who have seen not-very-excellent PTs find that the program provides essential training and knowledge they did not receive in PT.

Can I do kegels with a pessary in place?

Most women who use a pessary are able to practice kegel exercises with a pessary in place, and many women find that wearing a pessary can make kegels easier. If the pessary is poorly fitted, or if it is a “space occupying” pessary such as a donut or cube, some women may find that the pessary makes it difficult to do a full pelvic floor muscle contraction.
