How often do you think about wee? Are you dreading going back to the office?

If you don’t have any bladder issues – like the oops moment when you laugh, cough or sneeze or feel like you need the loo all the time, probably not much.  Yet heading back to the office you might want to think about your bladder health.

Pre-Covid, you worked all-day with few bathrooms breaks as many of us don’t get the opportunity to go to the toilet whenever you want, but spending the last year working from home with constant access to the bathroom and going whenever the feeling takes you, may have resulted in you spoiling your bladder making going back to the office a little bit tricker.

The more often we go and the less volume we hold in our bladder, the brain will train itself this is the new norm, but when we get back to the office and the toilet breaks are less often the urge to pee becomes more of a problem.

On average the bladder will hold between 300ml to 500ml when you first get the urge to pee expanding to 1000ml in a large bladder at desperation point.  Which mean that the average bladder should be emptied 5 – 7 times per day (for someone drinking 2 litres of fluid per day). 

So is this a problem that we have over indulged our bladder?  Well for someone with a healthy bladder no, but if you suffer from urge or stress incontinence this can be a serious concern.  One of the most common practices to get your bladder back into shape, is bladder training which retrains the brain to send the urge you need the loo when your bladder has more pee in it so you need the toilet less frequently.

When bladder training and you first feel the urge to pee hold it for 10 mins do this for 7 days, if you can do this easily increase the time to 20 mins for week 2, then you can increase this in week three to 30 mins, week four to 45 mins, week five to 60 mins and week six to 90 mins.  If you can’t comfortably make the times keep repeating this week until you can.   Important note do not hold your bladder to the point where you feel pain this is a sign that your bladder is too full.

In summery try not to spoil your bladder and go to the loo as soon as the feeling strikes, try holding for a little while this may just help your transition back to the office more comfortable.

If you are suffering for Stress or Urge incontinence why not speak to one of continence specialists at Body Lipo Lincoln and discover the life changing benefits of the Emsella Chair.

The Three Best Exercises to Strengthen the Pelvic Floor

It’s important to note after child birth and again at menopause and with natural aging we lose strength in our pelvic floor, the result of this is what the pad adverts call the oops moment, it means when we cough, laugh or sneeze we put pressure though our abdominal region and push down the bladder which can open the urethra and give us leakage (stress incontinence) but this can also happen in exercise or simply when you stand from a seated potion.  

The pelvic floor is responsible to support the bladder, uterus and bowl.  When the Pelvic floor is strong it stops the organ sagging and the opening to the vagina, rectum and urethra remains tight. 

The First way to stop pelvic floor weakness is by strengthening the pelvic floor and supporting the bladder to stop it moving and leaking.  A strong pelvic floor muscle this will support the bladder, uterus and bowl and help with lower back pain.

Other factors that will weaken a pelvic floor chronic coughing, lifting heavy objects and being overweight.  A weak pelvic floor can lead to painful sex, gas incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse.  So, if you feel you have a weak pelvic floor its never to late to start the exercises below.

One:  Body Weight Sumo Squats

These work the largest part of the pelvic floor muscle, stand with your feet shoulder width apart, point your toes out wards and bend at the knees to a 90% angel keeping a straight back while pushing the bum and hips back into a seated position and hold for three seconds and return to the start position.   This will not only work your pelvic floor but also the Glutes, Quadriceps and Hamstrings.  Do three sets of 12 to 16 reps

Two:  The Bridge

Lay down on your back with your feet and palms of your hands flat to the floor, fold your knees to a 90% angle and raise your hips up while squeezing your glutes.  With your body weight on your shoulder and upper back you will fill your abs and pelvis stretching.  Hold for three seconds and return to the start position.  Do three sets of 12 to 16 reps.

Three: Kegels (pelvic floor crunches)

This is by far is the best exercise you can do for the pelvic floor strength this involves contracting and relaxing the pelvic floor.  The easiest way to locate the correct muscle is to stop a flow of urine mid flow, once you can recognise the correct muscle you can do this anywhere.  Now you can locate the right muscle contract and lift the pelvic floor and hold for between 5 and 10 second then release do this 10 times, three times per day.

Don’t despair if you do not have the time to do the exercises above, we at Body Lipo Lincoln can help, The Emsella is an advanced medical device which simply looks like a chair. The Emsella uses electromagnetic technology to stimulate the pelvic floor muscles – this stimulation tightens the pelvic floor muscles, helping to alleviate incontinence. If like most of us you struggle to do your pelvic floor crunches daily, fear not – just 1 session on the Emsella chair is the equivalent of 11,200 pelvic floor crunches!

7 Surprising Facts About the Vagina You May Not Know About

There are a lot of myths and misconceptions about the vagina. For example, many people think that it is essential to wash the vagina with soap or it is possible to lose a tampon in the vagina. That’s why it is essential to learn accurate information and debunk myths. In this article, we have gathered eight surprising facts about the vagina you may not know about.

1. The vagina is a bit sour

There are a lot of bacteria in the vagina. Lactobacilli are the “good” bacteria that manage vaginal balance. They help maintain a sour pH in the female parts of the body and prevent the growth of bacteria that cause infection. When lactobacilli levels decrease, the vaginal pH can rise above 4.5, which is an ideal environment for vaginal infections such as yeast infections and bacterial vaginosis to develop.

2. You can’t lose a tampon in your vagina

There is a common misconception that you can easily lose a tampon in your vagina or it can travel throughout your reproductive system. But the reality is that the vagina ends with the cervix, a passageway that connects the vagina and the uterus. The size of the cervical opening is usually a few millimetres so the tampon can’t slip through it. However, some women can forget to take the tampon out and this can result in abnormal discharge, unpleasant smell, pain, and even fever. 

3. Washing with scented soaps can be quite dangerous

Many women wash and use scented soaps to clean the vagina and get rid of the smell. But you should understand that the vagina has its own smell that is completely normal. If you have noticed that your vagina has an unpleasant odour, it can be a sign of a certain infection or disease. Additionally, washing can disrupt the natural pH balance in your vagina while scented soaps can cause irritation and allergy. Regular washing can also result in bacterial vaginosis and increase your risk of getting the pelvic inflammatory disease (PID).

4. The vagina should be lubricated during sex

Insufficient lubrication during sex can cause a lot of unpleasant complications. The most common of them is discomfort and pain during sex, irritation, microcracks, and vagina bleeding. That’s why it is essential to prolong foreplay or use additional lubrication. But if you experience a lack of lubrication regularly, it can be a sign of vaginal dryness. In this case, it is better to visit your GP.

5. Vaginal orgasm is quite rare

Many people think that vaginal orgasm is achievable for almost every woman. But the reality is that only 18 percent of women can reach vaginal orgasm without clitoral stimulation. The other 82 percent of women need to stimulate the clitoris. Additionally, some women may have vaginal and clitoral orgasms at the same time which may seem rare but achievable. You should also know that there are many healthy women that can’t reach orgasm at all. 

6. The vagina can change its size

The length of an unstimulated vagina ranges from 2.75 inches to about 3,25 inches. When a woman becomes aroused, the vagina increases to 4.75 inches. However, it can increase more, depending on the penis size. Indeed, it is possible to tear the vagina if sex is rough or when you deliver a baby. But in most cases, the vagina just stretches during sex or childbirth and then turns back to its normal size. 

7. You can tighten up your vagina with the help of exercising

If you have never heard about Kegel exercises, it’s high time to spend a few minutes and read about them. Kegel exercises help strengthen pelvic floor muscles. Women who have urinary incontinence, pelvic organs prolapse, and have trouble holding in their stool or gas can benefit from these exercises. Many women who practice Kegel exercises admit that exercising helps them reach and orgasm more easily. That’s why you can start practicing them even if you don’t have any problems with the pelvic floor.  If you find Kegel exercises difficult and most of us do you can use the EMSella Chair.  

The Emsella is an advanced medical device which simply looks like a chair. The Emsella uses electromagnetic technology to stimulate the pelvic floor muscles – this stimulation tightens the pelvic floor muscles, helping to alleviate incontinence. If like most of us you struggle to do your pelvic floor crunches daily, fear not – just 1 session on the Emsella chair is the equivalent of 11,000 pelvic floor crunches!

The bottom line

It is essential to understand that every woman is unique and the size, smell, or colour of the vagina can vary. You should also know that there is no need to wash the vagina since it is self-cleaning and this can do more harm than good. But if you have some unusual symptoms like abnormal discharge, vaginal bleeding between periods, unpleasant vaginal smell, it is better to make an appointment with your GP.

LOUIZA, YORKSHIRE

I used to hate going clothes shopping with my friends, because of a bulky pad and not knowing where the toilet would be. The pad used to dictate what clothes I could wear so I could not buy what I wanted. After my course on the chair, I love shopping and can wear anything I choose with confidence, I would recommend the chair to anyone.

MAXINE, LINCOLNSHIRE

I started having water infections and a weak bladder during menopause, I even had bladder prolapse surgery in the year 2000, which helped for a little while but did not last, I saw Body Lipo Lincoln in the Lincs scene for a treatment on bladder dysfunction. I thought this will be my last hope as I did not want surgery again. I am now problem free which is AMAZING. I would recommend the treatment to others with this problem.
