Kegels Don't Work

Do Kegels Work?

Delivering a human being vaginally will forever change a woman's anatomy — for better or worse. For one woman who gave birth to 10 and 12-pound babies, the alterations were noticeable. Wanting to regain her prebaby bod, she consulted surgeon David Matlock. The two appeared on The View and discussed the reasons for and results of the procedure.

All in a day's work, Dr. Matlock performed surgery on mother of two Violet Estrada to tighten her vaginal muscles. Cohost Elisabeth Hasselbeck wondered why kegels wouldn't have the same results. Dr. Matlock said (take a deep breath you kegel lovers!) they just don't work.

Did kegels help you regain or maintain strength down south?
