Thanks for your health query.
Homeopathic experts claim that certain medications are safe in pregnancy.
However, your gynecologist would definitely advise you to stay away from any kind of medicine of which you are not sure of the composition.
Hence, please consult an ENT specialist, who could recommend mild and safe allopathic treatment for your sinusitis, bearing in mind that you plan a baby.
As an obstetrician and gynecologist, I would not recommend intake of any medicine other than that approved by your treating doctor, hence homeopathic formulations are also ruled out.
Please start taking regular folic acid supplements if you are planning a baby, as it is best to start them pre conceptionally.
Maintain a healthy BMI, and have regular intercourse around your peri ovulatory period.
Take care, all the best, and feel free to ask for further clarifications.
