My Pelvic Floor Muscles

About the female body pelvic floor muscles

1. First, let’s learn where it is! Here are 3 views of the pelvic floor

2. Here is the view from the bottom- it’s like we are looking into the pelvis from below.

3. Now let’s watch it move! Healthy pelvic floor muscles should be able to correctly contract and completely let go! See how the openings close and the muscles pull up and in during a contraction? And see how the openings relax and the pelvic floor muscles drop and lower during relaxation? This is when pee, poop, and gas are designed to exit the body!
