What are the signs and symptoms of SPD?

Symphysis pubis dysfunction, also known as pelvic girdle pain, occurs when the ligaments that help keep your pelvic bone aligned become stretched out during pregnancy. This relaxation of the ligaments is due to the hormone relaxin that prepares a women’s body for delivery. This loosening can result in the pelvic joint (symphysis pubis) becoming unstable, causing pain and discomfort.
