Question by  RingoStarr (31)

Is tail bone pain during ovulation normal or caused by something serious?

Each month, during ovulation, I feel a dull ache around my tail bone. Is this a symptom of something dangerous?

Probably not. Normal inflammation occurs during ovulation so pains around that area are not unheard of. The cause of it is the pressure caused by the expanded internal organs. However if the pain starts increasing or you notice other symptoms with it , such as fever or rashes, it would be wise to contact your gynecologist.

More than likely, this is a normal part of cramping. When you ovulate, your uterus contracts to expel the unused egg and the uterine lining. This can have a similar, but not as severe feeling, as going into labor.
