I think I’m really going to enjoy this internship . Quite different than the outpatient orthopedic settings that I’m used to. Very welcoming staff and the patients that I worked with yesterday were dear.
But dear reader, yesterday’s experience made my love of the Kegel exercise grow stronger. I am a great proponent, but I saw a whole l0t of diapers there yesterday and I would really like that to not happen to me. I will remind students with renewed vigor about that one, that is for sure.
I knew it is important for men too. But see below! 🙂

Pelvic floor exercise, also known as Kegel exercise, consists of repeatedly contracting and relaxing the muscles that form part of the pelvic floor, now sometimes colloquially referred to as the “Kegel muscles”. The exercise needs to be performed multiple times each day, for several minutes at a time, for one to three months, to begin to have an effect.
Exercises are usually done to reduce urinary stress incontinence (especially after childbirth) and reduce premature ejaculatory occurrences in men, as well as to increase the size and intensity of erections.
