What's YOUR “Kegel face?”

**Disclosure: This is a paid post and provided by PeriCoach. 

Let's face it, we all will be there sooner or later - urinary incontinence.  Something none of us are looking forward to. But...there are way to help strengthen your pelvic floor to treat any issues.  Bladder leakage is a topic many prefer to cover up rather than talk about or fix even through it affects millions of women.  The company behind the new PeriCoach System - a pelvic floor muscle training device plus smart phone app - hopes to change that.  Their new campaign called #kegelface encourages women to post their "Kegel faces" on social media to demonstrate they are taking back control of their pelvic floors through regular and smart Kegel exercises.

So what are kegals? Kegels are pelvic floor muscle training exercises and considered first line treatment for urinary incontinence.  About one in three women will experience UI at some point in their lives, typically after childbirth and around menopause.  

Cleared for use by the Food and Drug Administration and available by prescription, PeriCoace, made by Australian company, Analytica is designed to take the frustration out of a regular program of pelvic muscle floor training.  PeriCoach provides real-time feedback that is beamed to a smartphone so women and their clinicians can track progress.

As a part of #kegelface, PeriCoach will donate to the National Association for Continence and Voices for PFD (Pelvic Floor Disorders), part of the American Urogynecological Society (AUGS). 

In appreciation of participation, the company will offer women who post their #Kegelface to their Instagram, Facebook or Twitter accounts along with the hashtag #kegelface a discount code for purchase of the PeriCoach.  A downloadable Rx form for signature by a clinician is available from www.pericoach.com

#Kegelface social media campaign runs from October 20th to the second week of November to mark Bladder Health Week 2015.
