Pelvic Floor Muscles and Sexual Pain

Overactive pelvic floor muscles occur when the pelvic floor muscles are constantly contracted, and they do not relax between each contraction.
When the pelvic floor muscles fail to relax, they can create muscle spasms and tension, and they can therefore become painful just like any other muscle in our body.
