The hormonal and biomechanical changes during pregnancy can affect joints, potentially influencing pre-existing conditions. If you have a history of a hip labral tear, discussing this with your doctor early in pregnancy is advisable.

Pre-existing hip conditions may be impacted by the changes in weight distribution and joint laxity that occur during pregnancy. Try physical therapy and pain management first.
