Pregnancy and PND (Post Nasal Drip)

As if pregnancy weren’t difficult enough…add a stuffy nose, coughing, congestion and oh yes, don’t forget post nasal drip. One of the more common symptoms of pregnancy, yet the least discussed, post nasal drip brings with it those nagging cold symptoms. Most people do not realize that pregnancy and birth control pills are a leading cause of post nasal drip. As a result of elevated levels of estrogen hormones, as many as 30% of all pregnant women suffer from congestion, stuffy nose and post nasal drip. In fact, symptoms are so common, they even have a name for it - pregnancy rhinitis.

Post Nasal Drip

Post nasal drip is the uncomfortable sensation of mucus accumulating at the back of your throat. It creates the desire to clear your throat constantly, often resulting in a chronic cough and sore throat. In many cases, post nasal drip is the result of a cold, sinus infection, allergies, acid reflux and you guessed it- pregnancy. Generally, treatment involves decongestants, antibiotics, nasal irrigation or allergy medications. However, safety concerns because of pregnancy may eliminate some or all of these options. 

Acid Reflux

During pregnancy, high levels of progesterone slow muscular contractions that help move food through the intestines properly. As a result, there is an increase in gas and pressure. This is horrible on its own, but it also leads to another consequence of pregnancy- acid reflux-also known to cause post nasal drip. Reflux is aggravated by a diet high in acidic food such as lemons, oranges, coffee, tea and even garlic. Perhaps that is why so many women choose to eat ice cream and pickles. However, let’s not be so quick to dismiss the baby…pressure causes the stomach to move, allowing gastric acid to travel up the esophagus causing acid reflux. Treatment for acid reflux varies, but some of the simplest changes make the best solutions. Elevate your head at night and avoid eating or drinking after six in the evening. In addition, avoid caffeine, chocolate, fruit juices and dark syrup soda. 

Pregnancy Rhinitis

Pregnancy rhinitis affects a number of pregnant women, leaving them with an awful case of the sniffles. During pregnancy, the body creates excess mucus which must be expelled out from the nose. Too much of this mucus left in the nasal passageways can lead to post nasal drip and congestion. No one really knows for sure why pregnancy leads to rhinitis, but it has been suggested that it must be the fluctuating hormones. Again, isn’t every problem during pregnancy related to those pesky hormones? Well, maybe. For now anyway, pregnancy rhinitis may be caused by allergies, the beginning of a sinus problem or just a simple cold. Nevertheless, nasal irrigation with saline solution is a terrific, natural way to reduce symptoms and clear some of the infected mucus and other irritants out of the nose. Besides, saline is perfectly safe for the baby and that’s what it’s all about.

Pregnancy is a difficult time and yet one of the most treasured events in a woman’s life. For the most part, the side effects that come from hormonal changes during pregnancy are annoying but short lived. In the case of pregnancy rhinitis and post nasal drip, there are some options. Most pregnant women are aware of the beneficial properties of ginger for easing nausea. However, as a natural remedy for post nasal drip as well, ginger offers some relief. Nasal irrigation with a saline solution provides a natural way to clear nasal passageways and even homeopathic medicine can be helpful during pregnancy.

Be conscientious of how you feel. Avoid allergens, stay hydrated and good luck!
