What Is Pompoir; How it can fight infections and vaginal problems.

 we’ve talked several times about the benefits of Pompoir for women’s sexual health. Well know that, in addition to better orgasms and more strength in the pelvic floor, the technique can also help you solve infections and other vaginal problems, believe me?Yes, that vaginal symptom – which you think is nothing – can indicate a problem. And even your urinary incontinence, which ends your social life, can be avoided with pelvic exercises.

So, believe me: several of these discomforts can be avoided with a simple workout, done daily.

So, in this post, I will explain to you:

  • What is Pompoarism;
  • How it can fight infections and vaginal problems.

How do I know if I have vaginal problems?

Namely, when a woman suffers from weakness in the pelvic musculature, some of these problems usually appear:


In short, dyspareunia is pain during sexual intercourse. It can be caused by several factors:

  • Vaginismus (involuntary contraction of the muscles around the vagina). Most women with the problem cannot tolerate sexual intercourse, not even the use of tampons;
  • Thinning of the vaginal wall caused by falling estrogen after menopause ; 
  • Lack of lubrication.

Difficulty reaching orgasm

Look, I know several women who manage to have orgasms during clitoral stimulation, but at the time of penetration, they feel a lot of pain and can’t get there.

In addition, there are those women who do not even get pleasure during intercourse. This indicates that the musculature is so weak that the stimulus cannot be sufficient to give pleasure.

Feeling of laxity

Firstly, those who have a vaginal delivery usually have the feeling that the vagina has become “wider”, right? Even the partner himself often reports that the region is not as tight as it was before.

Vaginal flatus

Do you know when you’re having sex and suddenly your vagina makes a very strange noise?

These “flatus”, in fact, do not usually happen only during sex – but when they occur in front of the partner, that embarrassment hits. This is a clear sign of weakness in the vaginal muscles .

Urinary incontinence

First of all, do you know when you sneeze and have that urine leak? Or when you’re laughing a lot, playing with your son, working out and this leak occurs ? Yeah, girl: signs of weakness in the vaginal muscles. 

Abnormal discharge

Namely, a discharge is normal and can vary in color (clear, white, transparent) and texture (fluid, sticky).

But vaginal infections caused by microorganisms (bacteria and fungi) modify these characteristics, in addition to causing itching, burning and stench. This abnormal discharge can also be a reaction to a foreign body, such as a condom or spermicide.

Are these problems unusual?

Rest assured: there is nothing unusual or rare about it.

Certainly, as a physiotherapist, I have seen several women who suffer from weakness in the vaginal muscles. 

The problem is that vaginal weakness affects women physically and psychologically. After all, she can’t get laid . How will she try to have sex if she knows she will be in pain? And how to tell your partner about it? Nobody wants to go through this!

Anyway, I have reports of women with urinary incontinence who lost their social life because of the problem. That’s because this leakage of urine can happen during a show, a trip to the theater, at the cinema – and there’s no time to get to the bathroom.

And worse: there are those who don’t even feel the leak. Imagine the shame this woman feels.

In short, this means that your pelvic floor muscles are not very strong.

But what is a pelvic floor?

It is a set of muscles and ligaments located in the pelvis, which supports the pelvis and organs of the region:

  • Intestine;
  • Bladder;
  • Urethra;
  • Uterus;
  • Straight.

In this sense, the floor consists of 3 layers perforated by 3 channels (urethra, vagina and anus, in the same order); they work together to perform this function.

Therefore, when the musculature loses its strength, it also loses its ability to support itself. Hence problems like urinary incontinence appear. Two major reasons for this loosening are:

  • Pregnancy: in addition to vaginal delivery, the weight the woman carries for nine months also loosens the muscles;
  • Age;
  • Menopause.

What is Pompoarism?

Also called Sahajoli, Pompoarism is an exercise technique for strengthening the pelvic floor.

Specifically, pelvic exercises strengthen the pubococcygeal muscle, which extends from the pubic bone to the coccyx and forms the floor. The sequences basically consist of contracting and relaxing that musculature.

Seen as something extremely erotic or even bizarre, Pompoarism has been ostracized for a long time. Today, with easy access to information, women have the chance to learn about this technique that can change their lives – and not just on the sexual side.

Pompoarism is an ancient technique that was born in southern India and was perfected in Japan and Thailand. The name (pompoar means “suck with the vagina”) comes from Tamil, a language spoken in Sri Lanka. 

In the West, she arrived through Arnold Kegel, a gynecologist who was looking for a solution to her pregnant patients’ urinary incontinence. That is why, in the medical environment, the simplest Pompoir practices are called Kegel exercises.

But what the doctor did not know is that the exercises did so well for the woman’s sexual performance. Even better: not only those who suffer from incontinence can do the exercises.

And synthesis, in addition to preventing the leakage of urine, Pompoarism brings other several benefits:

  • Treat anorgasmia (women have difficulty reaching orgasm);
  • Prepares the pregnant woman for delivery and assists the postpartum;
  • Significantly improves bowel function;
  • Increases the pleasure of the partner has an increase;
  • Treats dyspareunia (pain during penetration);
  • Decreases symptoms caused by menopause;
  • Increases control of the vaginal muscles;
  • Decreases and fights vaginal flaccidity ;
  • Reduces colic and menstrual period;
  • Delays partner’s ejaculation ;
  • Increases vaginal lubrication ;
  • Treats urinary incontinence;
  • Treats vaginal infections;
  • Tightens the vaginal canal;
  • Increases libido .

How can pompoarism help fight vaginal problems?

Discover some advantages of Pompoarism for your health:


First, the lack of lubrication increases friction and increases dyspareunia, that is, it makes penetration difficult.

This is much more common during menopause, in which there is a drastic drop in estrogens and, especially, estriol (one of those responsible for keeping the vagina lubricated).

Thus, Pompoarism exercises increase blood circulation in the region and, consequently, the production of estrogens. With that, your vagina becomes moist again.


With the lack of training, the musculature loses support, falls and becomes limp. In addition, during pregnancy, the body carries a very heavy weight, which helps in this fall.

Incidentally, the skin also loosens and ends up falling, causing vaginal flaccidity. The problem is that, depending on the height of the fall, this sagging can only be corrected with surgery.

In summary, Pompoarism not only prevents the fall, but also helps to correct the existing muscle flaccidity.

Urinary incontinence

Of course, I wouldn’t stop talking about her, would I?

The pubococcygeal muscle is the musculature of the perineum (region between the vagina and anus) that is responsible for the outflow of urine and feces. When he is weak, he has already seen the result – incontinence.

In addition to the vagina, the pubococcygeus is also responsible for the perineum and the anus. With the strengthening of the musculature, the perineum becomes firmer and, consequently, the leaks cease.


First of all, you know that those abdominal pains during menstruation are terrific! This makes many women dependent on the use of contraceptives – even if they do not have an active sex life.

In other words, they are caused by involuntary contractions of the uterus to eliminate clots and the endometrium (the inner wall of the uterus that is expelled during menstruation).

Thus, in addition to completely eliminating pain, Pompoarism makes menstruation last for less time. In short: the uterus expels the endometrium soon, giving less reason for the contraction of the uterus and, consequently, for the appearance of colic.

How often should I do the exercises?

Anyway, the exercises are super simple and can be done at any time or place.

Certainly, those who need utensils need professional guidance before practice, see?

However, be careful: you cannot have a full bladder because, instead of avoiding it, you will cause infection – urinary, or worse, urinary reflux (when the urine returns to the kidney) or other related problems.
