Kegel or Pelvic Muscles
What do the pelvic muscles do?
The pubococcygeus muscle, known as the PC muscle or kegel muscle, is a pelvic floor muscle that supports the bowel and bladder. The pelvic floor muscles attach to your pubic bone at the front and the tailbone at the back. In women, this kegel muscle also supports the uterus and vagina. When these pelvic muscles are weak, it can result in urinary incontinence.
What causes kegel muscle weakness?
Among women, kegel muscle weakness can be caused by a number of factors. These include:
- Chronic constipation
- Lower estrogen levels from menopause
