Is it common to have nosebleeds in pregnancy?

Is it common to have nosebleeds in pregnancy?

Yes: Nosebleeds are very common in pregnancy. Many women will experience them for the first time while pregnant. They are due to an increase in blood vessels in your nasal lining caused by the increase in estrogen coming from your placenta. If you have a nose bleed, pinch the fleshy part of your nose for 5-15 minutes and tilt your head forward a little to minimize swallowing too much blood.

What causes nosebleeds in pregnancy?

What causes nosebleeds in pregnancy?

Fragile capillaries: Due to the high estrogen levels in pregnancy, the small blood vessels in our mucous membranes (nasal areas, oral areas) can become fragile and easily irritated --- which is why pregnant women may see nosebleeds or bleeding gums more frequently.

How can I prevent nosebleeds in pregnancy?

How can I prevent nosebleeds in pregnancy?

Depends: Depends why it is bleeding. Often nosebleeds occur from the nose drying out. Using saline spray o keep the nose moist may help prevent nose bleeds. If your nose bleeds occur from the front near the nostrils, over the counter aqueous gels may help as well. If they continue, you should have some blood work done and possibly see an ENT doctor and get an nasal scope.

I know nosebleeds are common during pregnancy, but yesterday I coughed up blood. Could this be something serious?

I know nosebleeds are common during pregnancy, but yesterday I coughed up blood. Could this be something serious?

Yes...: Coughing blood, called hemoptysis, is a symptom which always requires a doctor's evaluation. If you have shortness of breath, you should go to the nearest er now! Call your doctor today and let him/her know of this symptom. Possibilities include bronchitis but blood clot in your lungs, especially during pregnancy, is another possiblity. This could be a life-threatening problem. See a doctor today!

Does high blood pressure/nose bleeds result as a symptom of pregnancy?

Does high blood pressure/nose bleeds result as a symptom of pregnancy?

Strangely enough: It could be poor diet that causes both. Eating too many "empty calories" can cause nose bleeds and increased blood pressure, particularly all the sweet stuff. Pregnancy requires a pristine diet.

Is a nose bleed common in the first few weeks of pregnancy? Or just before a period? My wife never usually has a nose bleed.

Is a nose bleed common in the first few weeks of pregnancy? Or just before a period? My wife never usually has a nose bleed.

No: Nose bleeds are common in pregnancy due to swollen blood vessels all over the body but not usually in the first few weeks. It's not something we see before a period either. At this time of year, most common reason would be dryness from heating the home. Humidifier and saline nose spray would be best to try as a first step. If that doesn't help, seek care.

Unprotected encountered. Semen was released in and or around opening. Are my chances of pregnancy low? I've had a nose bleed and slight cramping

Unprotected encountered. Semen was released in and or around opening. Are my chances of pregnancy low? I've had a nose bleed and slight cramping

Semen transmitted: Into the vagina can swim upstream. So the depth of penetration is not protective. Chances of pregnancy can be 20 to 25%. That is a pretty big risk. Use protection 100% of the time if you are sexually active ; not ready for pregnancy. If you miss your period than would take a home pregnancy test.

My first pregnancy & I keep throwing up & having a nose bleed at the same time. Nose bleed once. My BP is 103/60 is this normal? I'm 15months+4days

Vomiting/ Pregnancy: I think you mean 15 weeks since pregnancy is only 9 months at most. Unfortunately, vomiting in early pregnancy is very common. It can be treated along with treating your nosebleeds that could be as easy as using neosporin to moisten your nose. See your OB, since there are treatments for vomiting that will help you get through this. Usually gets much better as pregnancy progresses.

Bloody nose, missed period, negative pregnancy tests. What is going on?

Bloody nose, missed period, negative pregnancy tests. What is going on?

See doctor: I do not think the two are related. It is best to see doctor for x-ray of your sinus and blood test for other causes of missed period.

Unprotected sex, one week later started coughing unexpectedly. No fever no rash. Slight nose bleed. What does that mean? Is that pregnancy?

Not pregnancy: Those are certainly not the typical symptoms of pregnancy although you may still be pregnant - unprotected intercourse leads to pregnancy pretty reliably.

Can nosebleeds be a sign of kidney cancer?

Can nosebleeds be a sign of kidney cancer?

Not likely: Nose bleeds (epistaxis) can be caused by many things including picking (#1), vascular problems, blood problems. Kidney cancer would not be anywhere on my differential list of etiologies.
