What are my pelvic floor muscles?

The pelvic floor muscles are located at the base of your pelvis and supports your pelvic organs, which are your bladder, uterus and bowel.

The Pelvic Floor Muscles Supporting the Pelvic Organs and the Back

Your pelvic floor muscles wrap around the canals like a rubber band and control the opening and shutting of the urethra, vagina canal and anus. When you contract your pelvic floor muscles, the sphincters tighten the openings of the vagina, anus and urethra. Relaxing the pelvic floor allows passage of urine and feces.

During sexual intercourse, the tightness and sensation perceived by you and your partner is due to the grip of the pelvic floor around the vaginal canal.

On top of supporting your pelvic organs, your pelvic floor muscles also hold your back in place and relieve the back of the stress and strain from everyday activities like lifting and bending.
