Female Bony Pelvis

Summary Information: Female Bony Pelvis

Female Bony Pelvis: The female bony pelvis is a large ring shaped cluster of bones located in the pelvis below the abdomen and above the lower extremities. The female bony pelvis is similar yet different than the male bony pelvis. Its shape is broader and it has a wider, rounder pelvic inlet than the male bony pelvis.

Like the male pelvis, the female bony pelvis consists of two hip bones that are formed by the fusion of three bones during adolescence: the ilium, ischium, and the pubis. The two hip bones of the female pelvis articulate with each other in the front at the pubic symphysis and in the lower back with the sacrum. The female bony pelvis has many functions, including connecting the vertebral column with the femurs of the legs, bearing the weight of the upper body, and protecting some organs of the female urinary system and the female reproductive organs. Conditions that can afflict the female bony pelvis include arthritis, trauma, osteomyelitis, cancer, Paget's disease of bone, inflammation and fracture.
