Hi there, I am Seven months pregnant and we just had our house painted earlier in the week. Since the past 4 days I have had nose bleeds in the mornings although and sometimes throughout the day. I went to the A and E and there said there is a growth in my nostrils which is common in pregnancy should I be worried.

Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.
I think a grouth is always something to worry unless the biopsy shows that it is nothing to worry about.
Sometimes in pregnancy nose capillaries become more fragile due to increased hormones and may bleed. This is nothing to worry about.
Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

My daughter has a low nasal bridge. I drank heavily before I found out I was pregnant which was about 7 weeks and after that I had the occassional glass of red wine which my Dr said was fine. Now I am really worried because she has a low nasal bridge. She is very clever, alert and growing well but could I have done her damage?
