Intervention/exposure
Study type
Interventional
Description of intervention(s) / exposure
Participants will be divided into four treatment groups: treatment of individual kynesiotherapy; treatment of group kynesiotherapy, treatment with the use of vaginal cones and treatment with the use of electrical stimulation. The treatment will be 12 sessions lasting 30-60 minutes and supervised by a physiotherapist. In treatments of kynesiotherapy the strengthen the pelvic floor muscles will be accomplished through voluntary contraction in different positions (supine, sitting and standing). In the treatment with the use of vaginal cones the strengthen also be accomplished in different positions but with the introduction of progressive weight cones. In treatment with the use of an intravaginal electrical stimulation the electrode is inserted into the vagina of the participant inducing muscle contraction associated with voluntary contraction.
