Our PC muscle - Pubococcygeus (PC muscle) is the hammock-like muscle that stretches from your pubic bone to coccyx, supporting your pelvic organs and internal genitalia.
A strong PC muscle is the key to more intense orgasms and greater urinary control, as well as helping during childbirth. Kegel exercises (named after the American gynaecologist, Dr. Kegel, who popularised these in the 1970s) are designed to tone and strengthen your PC muscle. With Ami, these exercises become simple, easy and pleasurable.
Pleasure for You
Using Ami regularly will tone and strengthen your PC muscle, so you can enjoy enhanced sensitivity and more intense, easy-to-achieve orgasms. What’s more, each Ami contains little balls that rumble around inside you, creating a discreet, arousing sensation even while you’re working out.
Pleasure for Him
If you have a male partner, Ami can lead to a whole new sexual experience when you use your improved PC muscle to grip and tease his penis during intercourse.
We might not talk about it as much as we perhaps should, but many women experience a degree of urinary incontinence at some point in their lives. With Ami, you can strengthen the PC muscle to improve bladder control.
Using Ami can protect your vagina by preparing the PC muscle for delivery. After birth, Ami can aid in vaginal recovery, and the enhanced tightness you’ll achieve will increase sensitivity for you and your partner during sex.
Strengthening your PC muscle can enhance your natural vaginal lubrication, sexual response and urinary control during the physiological changes of menopause.
Urinary incontinence is an important social problem that affects more than 50% of postmenopausal women. It is a problem that millions of women face. The number of patients increases from year to year. According to recent data, urinary incontinence affects women twice as often as men. This condition occurs in about 20-30% of young women, 30-40% in middle age and up to 50% of women in old age.
The involuntary loss of urine can range in presentation; it can be minimal, from a few drops when you laugh, exercise, or cough. Or, it can be an accident when you suddenly urge to urinate and can't keep it in. Most episodes of urinary incontinence are the result of altered pressures or stress on the muscles and nerves that help you pass or hold urine in. Hormone changes can also affect muscle strength. Like your vaginal tissue, the muscle tissue in and surrounding the bladder and urethra (the short tube that passes urine from the bladder out the body) requires estrogen to remain supple and strong. When estrogen levels drop in menopause, the tissue around the bladder and urethra thin and weaken, which can lead to incontinence.
The most common types of urinary incontinence include stress incontinence and urge incontinence. Stress incontinence occurs when the pressures from activities such as laughing, coughing, and sneezing cause leakage. Urge incontinence occurs when you have the urge to urinate and your bladder squeezes at the wrong time. Often, these two types can create a mixed picture. Other bladder problems that can happen are nocturia, when you must wake up multiple times throughout the night to urinate, and dysuria, painful urination. Urinary incontinence occurs much more frequently in menopausal and postmenopausal women than in premenopausal women.
Symptoms of urinary incontinence include:
Leaking urine when you cough, sneeze or exercise
Leaking urine on the way to the restroom
Waking up more than twice at night to urinate
Frequent urinary tract infections
Some reasons you may be experiencing incontinence during menopause include:
- Weak pelvic floor muscles. During menopause, your pelvic floor muscles tend to weaken naturally. Weaker muscles can mean less bladder control and more frequent urination in women.
- Prolapse. A prolapse is a sagging down of organs against the pelvic floor. Some women who have prolapse describe a feeling of a lump in the vagina where an organ is sagging down. That organ may be the uterus, bladder or bowel. Prolapse strains your pelvic floor.
- Less bladder elasticity. The base of your bladder can lose elasticity and have trouble stretching to accommodate your bladder as it fills. As a result, your bladder is irritated as it fills, causing an “overactive bladder” sensation that makes you feel like you have to go more frequently.
- Estrogen depletion. With the onset of menopause, estrogen is no longer produced by your body. When this happens, your body is more susceptible to incontinence because there isn’t enough estrogen to help keep the tissues around your bladder strong and working well.
- Weight gain. Many women tend to gain weight during menopause. Since your pelvic floor muscles support much of your body weight, any excess weight further strains these muscles, so they cannot support your bladder as they should. This is called stress incontinence.
Managing Your Urinary Incontinence
First line treatments include lifestyle changes such as limiting alcohol or caffeine intake, recording a voiding diary, or strengthening your pelvic floor muscles with Kegel exercises. Beyond this, therapies also include devices inserted into the vagina to hold up the bladder (pessaries), a variety of medications, and surgery if necessary. A great first step is strengthening your pelvic floor muscles with pelvic muscle contraction exercises (Kegels). Try your best to stay around your normal healthy weight. Guard against urinary tract infections by keeping up on personal hygiene, being very careful to wipe front to back and drinking fluids regularly. Your physician can help to exclude other potential causes of bladder problems including infection and neurological damage.
