Stretches To Relax Pelvic Floor Muscles

Tight and tense pelvic floor muscles can cause pain, and discomfort in the pelvic area.  Learning to relax the pelvic floor muscles can help to alleviate this.

Pelvic floor relaxation has certainly helped me on my journey with vaginismus (tight vaginal muscles).

If you have problems with:

    • A feeling of tightness in your pelvic area
    • Not being able to empty your bladder completely
    • Constipation
    • Pain during sex

Learning to relax your pelvic muscles may benefit you.

NOTE:  Any pain in the pelvic area should be checked out by your health care professional, for any possible causes before you start doing pelvic floor relaxation.
