Abstract: Coccydynia is usually mild and self-limiting but could be devastating in rare cases. It is commonly associated with missed or neglected coccyx fracture. Coccyx fracture is common in female and childbirth has been documented as an aetiological factor. Sexual trauma has not been reported as a cause. We managed a 45-year-old woman with severe coccydynia follows sexual trauma sustained from consensual sexual intercourse.
