I see so many post mentioning Kegels but at same time I read post where people did not do kegels and had good results with incontinence of which I am one. My doctor never said word one about kegels.
I'm not knocking kegels at all, just curious as to the reasoning and is there clinical studies that back this up or di kegel just make a lot of money writing a book. Or is it a certain condition that requires kegels?

Kegels (pelvic floor excersise) have been around a very long time WD. Women learn them early in life. There is a boat load of medical information on the subject.

For some strange reason, my husbands mother taught him to stop and go his urine stream when he was a little boy. Wonder of the Greeks know something we don't? Perhaps it has to do with an orthodox tradition. They do not clip their infant boys as most cultures do.
