Group A result showed that improvement in pelvic floor muscle strength (p = <0.0001). whereas Group B showed improvement in pelvic floor muscle strength (p = <0.0001). Group A result showed improvement in all parts of kings health questionnaire (p = 0.0001) and group B also showed improvement in kings health questionnaire (p = 0.0001) Intra group analysis reviled one hour pad test, KHQ, PFM strength considered significant in both groups.
