When can i start pelvic floor exercise if i had just given birth? Some say can start the exercise immediately but some say better wait till after confinement period. Actually i am quite confused as i was told the first 6 weeks right after the delivery is most crucial one, so if only can practice the exercise after confinement then will the 2 weeks time enough for me to tone up my pelvic floor muscles? I have suffered stress incontinence during my 3rd pregnancy, not really very serious but my urine did leak a bit when i sneezed and coughed. In fact i didn't practice any pelvic floor exercise before, but this time i know the exercise is necessary unless i want to opt for surgery. However i still preferring something naturally, really no point to bear a cut just because i want to please my man. Of course this exercise is good for own sake, i hate embarrassing leaked and i hate to wear panty liner too. So, nothing beats to start the pelvic floor exercise, but can i start the exercise if i still have the stitching pain?
