Muscles, tendons, and ligaments make up your pelvic floor that help:
- Support your pelvic organs against gravity
- Stabilize your core due to their muscular attachments to your hips and pelvis
- Sexually achieve orgasm and ejaculation
- Sphincterically , they allow for muscle contraction to avoid urinary leakage and also
relax to allow for a bowel movement
- Sump-pump functions help to avoid swelling and pelvic congestion due to their close
approximation with the pelvic lymph nodes
