Pelvic floor hypertonic disorder is a neuromuscular condition that causes involuntary spasms of the levator ani muscles, resulting in reproducible pelvic pain during vaginal intercourse or internal pelvic examination. It may act as a primary pain generator, a singular component of pelvic pain, or cause bladder or bowel dysfunction.
