Kegel Exercises: Treating Male Urinary Incontinence

When Will You See Results from Kegel Exercises?

Seeing results with any exercise takes time, so be patient. If you do Kegels three times a day, you should see better bladder control in three to six weeks -- some men see it even sooner. Try keeping a record of your urine leakage each day to help you notice improvements.

If you don’t see any change in a month, you may not have located the right muscles for Kegel exercises. Give your doctor or urologist a call. They can offer tips on how to find and successfully exercise the right muscles.

3 Tips to Help Make Kegel Exercises a Habit

The most effective exercises are the ones you do regularly. To help you get into the rhythm of doing Kegels, try these simple tips:

  • Stay consistent. Do your Kegel exercises at the same time each day -- maybe first thing in the morning while you are urinating, while brushing your teeth, and as you watch TV.
  • Remember the benefits. If you keep up with Kegels, they can really make a difference in your urinary incontinence.
  • Pay attention to progress. Over time, you’ll notice your urinary incontinence is improving. Maybe you’re having fewer leaks, or are leaking less.
