Good Bowel Habits
Prevent straining during bowel movements, which can worsen symptoms, by drinking enough water, eating a fiber-rich diet, and avoiding constipation.
Avoid Heavy Lifting
Refrain from lifting heavy objects, which can put pressure on pelvic floor muscles and exacerbate symptoms. If lifting is necessary, use proper techniques and avoid holding your breath.
Engage in low-impact exercises like walking, swimming, or cycling to strengthen pelvic floor muscles and improve overall health.
Manage Your Weight
Maintain a healthy weight through a balanced diet and regular exercise to alleviate extra pressure on pelvic floor muscles and reduce symptoms.
Good Bladder Habits
Manage urinary incontinence, a common symptom, by avoiding caffeine and alcohol, practicing timed voiding, and performing pelvic floor muscle exercises.
