25 weeks pregnant, nose bleeding, cauterization done. Due to hormonal changes?

Hi, I am 25 weeks pregnant and have been getting nose bleeds every 3 weeks or so, one of which did not stop for 2.5 hours which I had to have cauterised. My blood pressure is fine so I am presuming it is all to do with my hormones, however I had another one at the weekend from the same nostril as before and I am due to fly to XXXXXX on holiday in a few days time and am worried that this will set another one off, and probably a heavy one again. Is there anything i can do?

HI samantha maunder.
THANKS FOR YOUR QUESTION.

PLEASE LET IT KNOW YOUR NOSE BLEEDING HAS USUALLY NO RELATION WITH YOUR PREGNANCY.IN PREGNANCY BLOOD BECOME HYPERCOAGULABLE NOT BLEEDING.SO YOU SHOULD CONTACT YOUR ENT AND DETECT THE PATHOLOGY BEHIND THAT EPISTAXIS AND TAKE A PROPER TREATMENT.PREGNANCY HAVE NO RELATION WITH THAT IN THE CONTRARY IF YOU DON'T TAKE TREATMENT ANY TIME EXCESSIVE BLEEDING CAN ENGANGER YOUR LIFE YOU MAY CAUSE HARM TO YOUR BABY.

BEST WISHES
