Bladder control problems can occur in men and women, although it occurs more commonly in women.

  • In women, doing pelvic floor muscle exercises on a regular basis has been shown to improve muscle strength and urinary continence problems.
  • In men, pelvic floor exercises are not commonly recommended, although they can strengthen the muscles that empty the bladder. In addition, there is some evidence that pelvic floor exercises can be helpful for erectile dysfunction and so it could be considered in this context.

Here are a few pelvic floor exercise apps reviewed by Healthify

Before choosing an app, think about how it will benefit you and what you want it to be able to do.

  • An app will only be helpful if you use it, so it needs to be something you like using and find easy to use.
  • If you find the app difficult to use, or you don't like the imagery or look of it, or the language it uses, you may want to find another one that suits you better.
  • For more guidance on how to choose health apps, see How to choose a health app.
  • It's important to remember that apps don’t replace professional help or your doctor’s advice.
