The pelvic floor is a complex structure made up of a group of muscles that support the pelvic organs and form the birth canal and passages for urine and stool. The pelvic floor muscles can be visulaised as a hammock lifting and supporting the pelvic organs above. These muscles need to be able to contract to keep us continent, but also, they must relax to allow for urination, bowel movements, child birth and sexual intercourse. Problems with the pelvic floor can occur when these muscles are too weak, too tight or a combination of weakness and tightness.
