In summary, pelvic muscles, also known as pelvic floor muscles, are a group of muscles located in the pelvis that support the pelvic organs and play a vital role in controlling various bodily functions. Signs of weak pelvic muscles may include incontinence, frequent urination, and pain during sexual intercourse. Pelvic muscles can be strengthened through exercises such as Kegels, but it is important to consult with a healthcare professional first. Certain health conditions and factors such as pregnancy, aging, and menopause can affect pelvic muscles, but maintaining a healthy weight, avoiding constipation, and seeking treatment for underlying health conditions can help maintain their strength.

I've been training hard the past few weeks and I've got what feels like muscle soreness in my pelvis region, like over my bladder. Is that still considered abdominal? I've never hard soreness there before. I can't really feel much muscle there though. No sharp pain or hernia.

Your abdomen and groin and pelvis are replete with muscles, and also the tendons where the muscles attach to bone.
