I am 32 years and 15 weeks pregnant. Before I got pregnant I have been battling sneezing, running, itchy, peppery nose and now my nose is always blocked as well. Before I got pregnant, I saw an ent doctor who told me to do a ct sinus scan. It showed chronic sinusitis. I was given loratadine and flixonase nasal spray. But after I got pregnant, I was told to continue the drugs in the 2nd trimester. Am worried about the effect of the drug on my pregnancy. But I feel very uncomfortable. My sleep is disturbed daily with sneezing and blocked nose, my head also aches from time to time. I went for hijama but couldn't do it rigorously because of my pregnancy. My face, neck and upper back were done.

Due to hormonal changes in pregnancy nasal congestion increases. You can continue fluticasone nasal spray along with nasal saline washes and you should be fine.
