The pelvic floor is – in summary form – a set of muscles in the shape of a hammock whose main function is to support the pelvic organs: bladder, uterus or womb and rectum.
The pelvic floor of women often presents an important lack of muscle tone. These muscles are weakened by multiple factors such as pregnancy, childbirth, obesity, the practice of certain high-intensity sports (jogging, aerobics, etc.) or menopause.
With the passage of time, the lack of muscle tone in the pelvic floor or perineum of the woman can result in problems of significant severity whose solution often consists of a forced passage through the operating room.
