Question: Hello Doctor,
I am running in my 7th week of pregnancy. As I have allergy problem I take Montaire LC every alternate. But in spite of that I have sneezing problem throughout the day. I hope this does not effect my baby. Can sneezing be harmful?

Brief Answer:
Montaire LC daily

Detailed Answer:
Hi dear,
I have gone through your question and understand your concerns.
If you are having allergic rhinitis, that is aggravated in pregnancy due to the nasal congestion caused by the hormonal changes of pregnancy.
If Montaire LC is not giving you relief on alternate day dosing, then you can take it daily after getting prescription from the doctor.
Sneezing is generally not a problem for the fetus, however continous sneezing throughout the day can cause pain in lower abdomen.
It is better to treat it at the earliest.
Hope you found the answer helpful.

Brief Answer:
Happy to help

Detailed Answer:
Hi dear,
Bloating is common in early pregnancy due to the effect of the pregnancy hormones, especially progesterone.
You should avoid tea, coffee, spicy and oily food.
If it is causing much discomfort, then you can have antacid tablet or syrup for relief.
Iam happy to have helped you.
You can get back to me anytime for further queries by asking a direct question to me on the health care magic portal.
