Stuffy nose during pregnancy - what to do?

Quite often, with nasal congestion, adults themselves choose an effective remedy for themselves: drops, sprays, etc. However, during pregnancy, everything changes dramatically, it is quite risky to prescribe something yourself, and the choice of funds is quite small. Self-medication or advice from friends in this case can cost both mom and baby a lot. It should be understood that nasal congestion throughout the nine months of pregnancy is a temporary condition, and after childbirth everything will get better.

The second side of the coin

A runny nose during pregnancy can be not only unpleasant, but also dangerous. This may be due to the presence of a viral disease in the body, viruses are a great threat during the formation of the placenta and internal organs of the fetus. At this stage, the child's central nervous system may be the first to suffer.

Despite the fact that pregnant rhinitis is the result of raging hormones in the mother's body, and as a rule, special treatment is not required, you still need to be careful. For example, the air coming through the mouth is not cleaned and warmed, as with nasal breathing, therefore, a woman has a greater risk of catching an infectious or colds disease.

Do not lose sight of the fact that with nasal congestion there is a risk of fetal hypoxia (lack of oxygen), which is also extremely undesirable for a mother with a baby.

Vasoconstrictor drops during pregnancy: is it possible to use?

Widespread opinion, that it is forbidden to use nasal drops during pregnancy. This is due to the fact that nasal drops have a systemic effect, this implies the effect of the drug not only on the vessels located in the nasal cavity, but also throughout the body. Vascular spasm caused by the drug can lead to a decrease in the amount of blood received to the fetus, which means that there is an oxygen deficiency. The use of vasoconstrictive drops in early pregnancy is considered especially undesirable.

However, despite all these plausible facts, no effective research has yet been conducted on the effect of such drops on a child in the womb. Therefore, it is considered dangerous for expectant mothers ahead of time.

But, on the other hand, leaving a runny nose without treatment is also not the case, because if it is difficult for mom to breathe, respectively, and the child feels a lack of oxygen. Therefore, based on the anamnesis of the expectant mother and her current condition, the doctor can still prescribe the drug "Snoop" for children during pregnancy. It should be used briefly and without much fanaticism, strictly following the instructions of a specialist. Do not increase the dosage or frequency of use in any case.
