I do the Kegals just during urination. The doctor said not to do it more because the muscles will get tired and then leak. I still leak after one year. What do you folks think?

I'm dry for the most part but I do kegals often. At my three month post op. my doc said keep doing Kegals. I've read that this should be done for life to keep the muscles strong.

So, you all do them more than when you urinate. How many times a day have you found works?
