Pelvic Peritoneum

 

The pelvic peritoneum begins at the level of the anterior abdominal wall where the parietal peritoneum of that wall meets the parietal peritoneum of the pelvis. It passes above the superior aspect of the urinary bladder and dips inwards  on the same superior aspect to form the paravesical pouches of peritoneum before it passes behind the bladder to form the uterovesical pouch in the female and the rectovesical pouch in the male. The peritoneum continues its journey backwards to cover the anterior aspects of the rectum and plaster that structure to the posterior abdominal wall and the hollow of the pelvis.

Endopelvic fascia.

This fascia is a condensation which surrounds organs of the pelvis and their walls. It is covered externally by the parietal peritoneum in areas where the structures are exposed superiorly.  It also covers the levator ani muscles which separates the pelvis from the perineum. Below the levator ani is the perineum. Above the levator ani is the lesser pelvis.
