Kegel Exercises: Treating Male Urinary Incontinence

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.
