2nd opinion: I presumed you have had a workup by an allergist who has instructed you on the proper technique on the nasal spray and you have followed the instructions on avoidance measures. Have you tried Dymista or singulair (montelukast) yet? And yes, hormone can affect nasal congestion being most evident in some women during pregnancy. I would seek a 2nd opinion from another allergist if symptoms remain uncontrolled.
