Perineal strength measurement study

According to the results of this study, 92% of the participants suffering from stress incontinence recovered completely after completing the course and practicing daily for 10 minutes. The rest of the patients (8%) included those who did not exercise at home upon completing the pelvic floor education programme. After three months the average increase of vaginal strength was 132%.

The measurements were carried out by Andrea Kriston (Pelvic Floor Education Specialist), Dr Zsolt Simon (Urologist) and Dr. Lajos Nagy (Gynaecologist-Urologist) in 2000; the team was led by Dr Janos Demeter (Gynaecologist-Obstetrician). The measurements were taken at St Rokus Hospital (Budapest, Hungary), using a perineometer placed in the vagina. Each participant was tested twice: first, when their doctors recommended they learn the Pelvic Floor Education Programme and second, once they had been practicing for 10 weeks.
