Sacroiliac joint: 40's female with pelvic and low back pain during sex likely has sacroiliac joint subluxation. Pain generated by this joint can radiate to pelvis and low back. The missionary position during sex places mechanical stress directly on the sacroiliac joints. See an Osteopath for an evaluation. Seek yoga to strengthen back muscles.
