How to Stop Nosebleeds During Pregnancy

Nosebleeds are a recurring symptom in pregnant women, especially due to estrogen, the female hormone that promotes the dilation of the blood vessels, increases nasal secretions, and causes nosebleeds during pregnancy, especially in the second trimester. Some nosebleeds that come from larger blood vessels in the back of the nose may be harder to stop than others. To stop them, you can try these effective natural remedies.

The Nozohaem natural gel treatment

The Nozohaem natural gel treatment is a fast, simple, and natural process for stopping a sudden nosebleed. Thanks to a discreet nozzle specially designed to facilitate safe and easy insertion into the nostrils, Nozohaem gel is applied until the flow of blood stops and is then naturally eliminated from the nostrils without any discomfort. Indeed, the Nozohaem treatment works with the natural healing process of the nosebleed by promoting normal and natural clotting. Before inserting the Nozohaem gel treatment into the nostril affected by the bleeding, there are a few steps to follow:

  • Lean slightly forward to allow the blood to flow out of your nostrils and not into your throat.
  • Blow your nose to remove any blood clot that may impede the natural flow of your blood.
  • Insert and press on the ball of the tube to insert all the Nozohaem gel into the bleeding nostril(s) and remove the tube.
  • Gently compress the bleeding nostril(s) with your thumb and index finger.

Saline water

In case of a nosebleed, and because pressure must be exerted on any source of bleeding, make sure to apply pressure to the bottom of the nostril in question. Remain seated more or less leaning back to prevent the nosebleed. If you can, or if someone can take care of this task for you while you keep pressure on your nostril, prepare a saline solution. To do this, take a large glass of water, then mix a pinch of salt in with it. Then, use a syringe and inject the saline solution into your nostrils.

Ice cubes or a cold cloth

While making sure to sit down, to keep your head tilted slightly forward, and to exert slight pressure on your nostril, apply an ice cube to the bridge of your nose for at least ten minutes, then note the results. You can also use a cold cloth in the same way to stop the flow of blood by constricting the veins.

Lemon or vinegar on a compress

If you have lemon or vinegar when your nose starts to bleed and you don’t have a more suitable natural treatment, you can try to soak a piece of sterilized compress in some mild vinegar or pour one or two drops of fresh lemon juice onto the fabric. Once you are in a seated position with your head slightly forward, while pressing on the nostril in question, insert the piece of soaked compress very gently and leave it in your nostril for around ten minutes before taking note of the results.

If you’re pregnant, it’s recommended to take precautions and anticipate nosebleeds, which are common symptoms. They may be unpleasant and cause you stress, especially when they don’t seem to stop easily. If you experience nosebleeds often, if you bleed quite abundantly, or if you are unable to stop a nosebleed after more than twenty minutes, don’t hesitate to call your doctor as well.
