Kegel exercises have become hugely popular in recent years, with celebrities like Kourtney Kardashian and Gwyneth Paltrow touting the benefits of “Kegel boxing” and jade egg exercises.

The pelvic floor is a bowl-shaped set of muscles that sits at the bottom of the pelvis, supporting the bladder and sex organs.
