I’ve heard the term “pelvic floor.” What does it mean?

The pelvic floor is a group of three layers of muscles located within the base of your pelvis. They form a hammock that plays a role in supporting the pelvic organs, maintaining continence, core stability, and sexual function. Interestingly, they also play a role as a “sump-pump” for blood and lymph which helps manage pelvic swelling and congestion.
