Blood from the nose during pregnancy
Pregnancy is a difficult period, accompanied by large-scale rearrangements in the body of the future mother. Despite the fact that all the changes taking place are natural, they often lead to the emergence of many unpleasant phenomena, exacerbation of chronic diseases and the manifestation of symptoms of pathologies that the woman has never encountered before. One of the most common problems is spontaneous nasal bleeding, which is often very difficult to stop. Not always blood from the nose during pregnancy is a cause for concern, but even with a single appearance it is necessary to consult a doctor.
According to statistics, blood from the nose during pregnancy worries about 10-15% of expectant mothers. As the fetus grows, the heart of the woman has to pump more and more blood, and a large part of the vitamins and minerals that enter her body go to the baby. All this together with a change in the hormonal background and an increased burden on all organs and systems leads to physiological changes in blood vessels. They become brittle and brittle, and their walls are thinned and easily damaged even under low load. Most often, the capillaries suffer, with a dense mesh lining the nasal mucosa. That is why any physical activity, intensive blowing out and even dry air in the room can lead to their rupture.
