Step 1
What is the pelvic floor? And how to train it.

The pelvic floor is a long, flat muscle at the bottom of the torso, extending towards the pelvic region. The pelvic floor is often an overlooked muscle, but it's important to train. It undergoes both weight and pressure throughout the day, and it's also the muscle you engage with when you cough and sneeze. The pelvic floor supports the bladder and the rectum. If you have a uterus, the pelvic floor is larger as it also supports the uterus. When you train the pelvic floor, you can prevent incontinence—even increase the possibility of your orgasms.

The pelvic floor is about 1 centimeter thick, so it's not always easy to feel when you engage it. You can check if you're engaging it correctly by placing two fingers between the anus and your genitals—it should feel tense. You can train the pelvic floor while standing, sitting, and lying down. If the muscle is weak, it's recommended to train it while lying down. When you start pelvic floor exercises, it's recommended to train multiple times a day. As your muscles build up, you can train two to three times per week. Training sessions can last between 5-10 minutes. According to physiotherapists from Sydvestjysk Hospital, it's advised to do 10 contractions of 5 seconds each in 3 sets. At the beginning of your training, it's not crucial to complete the set. The important thing is to work towards it. A strong pelvic floor should be able to do 20 contractions lasting five seconds each, as well as one contraction lasting a minute.

Step 2
Which weight should you use?

A pelvic floor trainer can be compared to weights in a fitness center. You start with a light resistance and can then add more weight. The advantage of pelvic floor trainers is that they add a gentle weight load, which can train the muscles more effectively. Additionally, using a pelvic floor trainer can be more motivating as it adds variety to the training. The pelvic floor trainer can be inserted into the vagina. During the contraction exercises, you squeeze around the pelvic floor trainer.

For beginners, it's recommended to start with the lightest weight, and as the muscle gets stronger, you can increase the weight. For this reason, it's advantageous to choose a set with multiple pelvic floor trainers, so you can try out different weight levels and determine what works best for you.

How to clean your pelvic floor trainer?
You can easily clean your pelvic floor trainer with water and a bit of antibacterial soap. If you use your pelvic floor trainer during menstruation, it's a good idea to boil it after use to ensure complete disinfection.

Step 3
Pregnancy and pelvic floor training

During pregnancy, muscle fibers grow, and the pelvic floor is subjected to more pressure and weight. By training the pelvic floor before pregnancy, it can better support this increased pressure. However, even if you haven't trained before pregnancy, it's still safe to use during and after pregnancy.

Studies also show that pregnant individuals who train their pelvic floor reduce their risk of developing incontinence during pregnancy and up to six months after childbirth. Additionally, it can help prevent prolapse, which can particularly affect pregnant individuals who give birth vaginally.

After childbirth, pelvic floor training can promote circulation in the pelvic region, aiding healing and reducing swelling. However, be mindful that you might not be able to resume your training as before right after giving birth. Give your body time to reconnect with the muscles, and don't train if it's painful.

Step 4
Pelvic floor training also involves relaxation

A strong and healthy pelvic floor is one that can contract and relax when needed. It's important to remember that all pelvic areas are different, and you should listen to your body. If you feel discomfort, stop—perhaps you're using a pelvic floor trainer that's too large or heavy. Training the pelvic floor can give you more control over both your sex life and pelvic area.

"Why intimacy, well-being, and sexual health are such important topics to talk openly and loudly about."

Rudolph Care & Peech have created two different products: a vibrator and stimulator in one and a pelvic floor trainer.

What is the idea behind the two products?

"We want the products to show the many nuances intimacy and well-being contain. Tender Lifters (the pelvic floor trainer, ed.) contains the health aspect reflecting the importance of a strong pelvic floor, while Pleasure Seeker contains the element that deals with sexual well-being and pleasure. A beautiful aesthetic has also been important in the process; we want the products to be part of one's health routine, and not something to be ashamed of or hide away," says Clara Filippa Andersen.
