Pelvic floor anatomy

 

As you can see, the pelvic floor is formed by many muscles and ligaments that hold the pelvic floor organs. Any weakness of the pelvic floor support will have not only anatomical but also physiological implications that may drive to urinary incontinence or pelvic organ prolapse.

A good knowledge of the pelvic floor structures is essential to understand which part may be affected to decide the proper treatment.
