Pelvic floor health is certainly not something women talk about during happy hour or over lunch. Occasional giggly references to ‘don’t make me laugh (I’ll pee!)’ or kegel exercises is about all that takes place when talking about this important aspect of a woman’s health.
However, the fact that this conversation can be awkward shouldn’t diminish its importance. Do you realize that in addition to controlling our urine, helping us to have babies, our pelvic floor also holds up our guts? There is much to learn about having a healthy pelvic floor – what it is and how to care for it. Join us to hear more.

It's not just about the kegels!
Tasha Mulligan is working hard to teach women how to take ownership of their own health, beginning with knowledge of their own pelvic health. Many have heard of Kegel exercises, but most are unaware of the entire pelvic basket of muscles involved in pelvic stability and support of their pelvic organs. Her goal is to promote awareness of pelvic health and the control women have over their pelvic basket of muscles. By establishing control, they can ease or resolve pelvic floor related symptoms that affect every woman's health and quality of life whether you have just given birth or you have reached the age of menopause
Tasha Mulligan is a 37 year old mother of three with a passion for health and fitness.

Kegels : how do you REALLY do them? Kegel. Kegel. Kegel. And repeat. We all know you are doing one right now. You can’t see or hear the word without doing one, right? It’s like watching someone yawn. (Here is a blog I wrote about kegels in 2009. We’ll have to see what Alyce thinks of it.)
I am very excited to intereview the “Kegel Queen” Alyce Adams, RN on my Better Sex Radio show to get the 4.1.1. on Kegels finally. There is so much uncertainty about how exactly how to do them and how many to do in a day. And, then there is all of the Dr. Oz controversy about Kegels and how to do them. So, we are going to get to the bottom of all of is (ha ha, I know, my inner 8th grade boy thinks that is funny).
Check out this awesome video from Alyce about the anatomy of your pelvis and your p.c. muscle. It may help you to understand your Kegels better and they they are so important to your sexual health and your ability to hold your water while jumping on a trampoline.
Kegel Queen Alyce Adams
Alyce’s website www.KegelQueen.com has some fab information and video to help you understand your pelvic healthy and anatomy and I am going to talk with her about what exactly we SHOULD be doing and how often we should be doing our kegels. Plus, we will ask her how we should REALLY be doing them.
Blissfully, Chrystal Bougon
