What are the Pelvic Floor Muscles?

The pubococcygeus or PC muscle is a trampoline-like muscle, found in both sexes, that stretches from the pubic bone to the coccyx (tail bone), forming the floor of the pelvic cavity. This muscle is often referred to as the pelvic floor muscle. The PC supports pelvic organs in women such as the bladder, rectum, and the uterus. A weak PC muscle may cause or contribute to pelvic organ prolapse occurring, leakage of urine or stool, which may occur when coughing, sneezing, laughing, or lifting heavy objects or children, or reduced orgasm.
