Kegel exercises for erectile dysfunction: Do they work?
Kegel exercises, also known as pelvic floor exercises, are designed to strengthen the muscles that control your bladder, according to WebMD. Although their primary goal is to control urinary leakage, these exercises have a couple of added benefits for men: They can improve the strength of your erection and help you to experience more intense orgasms.
You first must locate the muscles that these exercises target. You may be able to do this during urination. Midway through urination, try to slow down or stop altogether your urine flow without holding your breath or tensing the muscles in your buttocks, legs, or abdomen. When you are able to stop or slow urine flow, you’ve zeroed in on the right set of muscles. Then:
“Contract these muscles for a slow count of five.
“Release these muscles to a slow count of five.
“Repeat 10 times.
“Do a set of 10 Kegels daily, three times a day.”
