Pelvic exercises, also known as Kegel exercises, have many benefits, especially during perimenopause. Here are 3 exercises you can do at home to improve your pelvic muscles:

3 Pelvic Exercises

1. Bridge

Lay down on the floor and on your back with your feet both touching the ground. Make sure your knees are bent in a 90 degree angle. Place your arms on your sides with your palms facing down. Then raise your hips up and off the ground. Push your wait through your heels. While your hips are up, squeeze your pelvic floor, glutes, and hamstrings. Hold for at least 5 seconds. Relax your muscles and go back down.
