StructureEdit

The rectouterine folds contain a considerable amount of fibrous tissue and non-striped muscular fibers which are attached to the front of the sacrum and constitute the uterosacral ligaments.[1]

These ligaments travel from the uterus to the anterior aspect of the sacrum.[2]

The pelvic splanchnic nerves run on top of the ligament.[3]
