The internal pudendal artery is an artery of the pelvis coming from the visceral branches of the internal iliac arteries. It leaves the pelvis through the greater sciatic foramen, wraps around the ischial spine and enters the perineum through the lesser sciatic foramen. The internal pudendal artery provides much of the blood supply to the structures of the perineum.
