Kegel exercises are an easy way of strengthening both your vaginal wall muscles and the muscles that control urination and bowel movements (which can also reduce the effects of stress incontinence).

Older women and women who have had children are especially at risk of weakened pelvic floor muscles.

All you have to do is contract and release the muscles in the pelvic area, squeezing them for 5-10 seconds and then relaxing for 5 seconds each time.

The most important thing is to locate the muscles you're trying to strengthen, and to get used to the sensation of exercising them. The best way of doing this is to try to stop your urine mid-flow when you go to the loo. If you do this successfully then you've found the muscles you're looking for.

Repeat the cycle of contracting and relaxing ten times per session, and try to fit in three sessions per day. This shouldn't be difficult as, unlike press-ups or lunges, these exercises can be done anywhere, at anytime, without anyone even realising you're doing them.

If done properly, you should notice a difference (enhanced sensation during sex and less leakage) in 4-6 weeks.

According to the NHS website, it's not just women who can benefit from kegel exercises: "Pelvic floor exercises can also benefit men with problems such as erectile dysfunction (difficulty getting or keeping an erection) and urinary incontinence."
