Pelvic floor muscles


I would like to ask you a rather sensitive question about the pelvic floor muscles. I've started doing kegel exercises recently and now that i've gained a better awareness of these muscles i noticed that i'm unconsciously keeping those muscles contracted all day long, especially during stressful situations. Not that it's a major contraction, but still. I known that the pelvic floor muscles are involved in stabilizing the spine, internal organs and have other rather important functions as well, so i guess those muscles need to be in some kind of tone all the time, am i right? Then again, maybe its just a habit that i have (i tend to contract my sensoredocks well) and i should get rid of? Could you please make it clear for me?

Thank you
