Hi Trina

It could happen but you would have to be having very rough sex (or have brittle bones) to fracture a pelvis during sex. Was it regular sex or were you using equipment that may have caused a fracture? Do you know if you may have osteoporosis or another condition that causes your bones to be brittle or your pelvis to be be susceptible to breaking?

Could you possibly have fractured it through another way?
