the next time you urinate, stop the flow for a second, start it, stop it again, start it again. This is the kegal exercise. Now that you know what muscle to move, you can do it anytime.

Will anticoagulant drugs affect the results when doing Kegel exercises?

If you do the Kegel exercises without any tools or devices, there should be no problem if you are on anticoagulant medicines. Kegel exercises are as or more effective when done without Kegel devices anyway. Use of the devices that are external add no value and only add costs. The internal Kegel exercise devices may be helpful but are also unnecessary so you would not need to use them and risk an injury that could cause bleeding. When on anticoagulants you want to avoid any chance of a tear or scratch that could cause bleeding, so there is a small risk of this with use of internal Kegel exercisers or with excess bruising and resulting discomfort. Doing Kegel exercises without devices is safe and effective and should create no problems with use while taking anticoagulants ("blood thinners").
