Interview one or all of the “Down There Doctors.” Dr. Eilber, Dr. Anger, and Dr. Scott are a team of urogynecologists and are a powerful resource for all things people are generally hesitant to talk about. They are also the authors of the newly released book, A Woman’s Guide to Her Pelvic Floor: What the F*@# Is Going on Down There?
What the Doctors Can Say about
Taking Care of Your Pelvic Floor:
1. Learn to strengthen your pelvic floor. Do your Kegels! And don’t stop. Do a set of 10 contractions when you wake up, sit at stoplights, eat lunch, and before you fall asleep. Prevent urinary incontinence and keep your bladder, uterus, and rectum happy with a strong pelvic floor.
2. Learn to relax your pelvic floor. Yes, you read that correctly; relaxing the pelvic floor appropriately is just as important as strengthening! Diaphragmatic breathing is a good relaxation technique.
3. Be mindful of how you go to the bathroom. Give yourself time to relieve yourself. If you try to rush, you may not relax your pelvic floor muscles appropriately. The same goes for hovering over the toilet. This can prevent you from relaxing your muscles to empty your bladder completely. For bowel movements, don’t strain. Prevent constipation with increased water and fiber.
4. Don’t douche. Discharge and some smells are very normal. Consider your vagina like a self-cleaning oven. It generally knows how to take care of itself, and douching, or flushing the vagina out with a liquid solution, can alter the important balance of good and bad bacteria that help keep the vagina healthy and happy.
5. Sex should not be painful! Talk to your doctor if it is. You may need help relaxing your muscles or treating vaginal dryness that comes with decreasing estrogen levels at the time of menopause, and even many years after menopause.
