Postural variation and local analgesic application and local cortisone injection help in treating the pain of Coccydynia of pregnancy. Removal of coccyx is an alternative when the pain is excruciating. Analgesics may be given from the second trimester onward with caution and some discretion. Please avoid prolonged sitting and use a well-padded seat. Hope your query is clarified. Take care.
