The first step involves tightening the anus as if stopping gas from passing. The anus tightens and buttocks should stay relaxed. Tighten the anus and lift it inwards to feel a squeezing sensation around your anus.
Tighten and squeeze the entrance to the vagina as if you’re closing it shut and at the same time try to lift your vagina inwards.
Tighten the opening where the urine comes out. You may feel the anus and vagina tightening, if you do this is correct
Now relax your pelvic floor muscles back to resting.
