This worries me: Hi. With a history of recurrent PE, you pregnant and coughing up blood is obviously concerning for both you and the fetus. Your D dimer is barely elevated, but with your history and current status, I'd say your risk is high for PE.

Safe medication: For a young healthy person a short course of over the counter medication is unlikely to be harmful. The other side of that, though, is that most OTC meds aren't very effective. For a serious cough a prescription medication might be best, but if the cough is minor you're better off to try home remedies.
