No relation : Antihistamines should nott influence the mucus secretions in uterus. Uterine secretions are under the influence of Progesterone and estrogen.

Complicated: Antihistamines can all interfere with ovulation by blocking the action of histamine, a chemical that also plays a role in releasing an egg from the ovary and implanting it in the womb. These drugs are effective at relieving the symptoms of an allergic reaction, but they may also halt conception. If you’re trying to get pregnant, it’s best to avoid antihistamines from mid-cycle until your period.
