Cold and flu season is upon us! Did you know that a chronic cough can affect your pelvic floor? If you have a slightly compromised pelvic floor a simple cough can push it over the edge!
Hopefully you will be able to stay health and well this winter but just in case here are a few ways you can protect your pelvic floor:
- Make sure you are doing regular pelvic floor work, even when you don’t have a cough! If you need a reminder about the best exercises to do you might consider attending one of our monthly Pelvic Floor 101 workshops.
- Support your pelvic floor through a cough. You can cross your legs and squeeze your inner thighs together to do this.
The stronger your pelvic floor is at the beginning of a cold the better it will be afterwards too!
