Is it of any benefit to continue pelvic floor strengthening exercises after receiving a pessary? ~ This is such a sensitive and silent subject and I believe that anyone wearing a pessary or even being offered one should also be offered more information about core stability exercises instead of just being fobbed off with "are you doing your pelvic floor exercises" . Education about our bodies is really really important for our children and grandchildren. ~ What muscle training exercises might help?
