Sphincter Urethrae: The sphincter urethrae is located in the pelvis and helps to control the flow or urine through the urethra to the outside of the body. In a healthy individual, the sphincter urethrae is under voluntary control through the somatic nervous system. The sphincter urethrae controls the flow of urine by contracting around the hollow urethra and closing it.
Conditions that afflict the sphincter urethrae include pregnancy, urinary tract infection, neurological conditions, and urethritis.
