Abstract: 
Introduction: Pelvic floor exercises of Kegel exercises have an important role in strengthening and improvement of the tonicity of pelvic floor muscles without any complications. Many advantages have been described for these exercises; the most important is prevention and treatment of urinary incontinence. The purpose of this study is to determine the rate of making use of Kegel exercise during pregnancy and postpartum. Methods and Material: This was a descriptive study on 245 samples selected by simple randomized method among women visited at Hamadan health care centers in 2005. Data gathering was on the basis of questionnaire and interview; and was analyzed using SPSS software. Results: 15.1% of women were trained about Kegel exercise during pregnancy or postpartum, 62.1% of whose training was through mass media and personal study. 43.25% of women during pregnancy and 21.6% during postpartum used this exercise, but in 59.45% of cases not correctly. 29.7% of women did the exercise daily and only 2.7% did it three times a day. Majority of them used it once a day.Conclusion: Women are not familiar with Kegel exercise and in health care programs the education of this exercise is not concerned and health care staffs don't pay attention to the education of the strengthening of pelvic floor muscles as an important part of prenatal and postpartum training. So, a few numbers of women have been educated about Kegel exercise and among them the fewer do the exercise correctly.
