It is quite likely that during your pregnancy you will experience a nosebleed at least once. Don’t worry, this is a completely normal pregnancy symptom that is harmless, though it can be quite an inconvenient and unpleasant experience. Like varicose veins and hemorrhoids, nosebleeds are the result of extra progesterone in your body which relaxes you nasal blood vessels. You’ve just got to love those pregnancy hormones!

Nosebleeds generally occur if your nasal passages are dry or you have a cold, sinus infection or allergies. They can strike at anytime of the day, even if you’re sleeping, in which case you’ll probably feel liquid at the back of your throat where the blood first pools.

There are steps you can take in order to avoid nosebleeds and in the event you get a nosebleed there are ways to alleviate it.
