What is the pressure in my ears when pregnant?


I delivered my baby three days ago,
Ever since i reached third trimester, i've been feeling pressure (sometimes heartbeat sound) on my right ear time to time. I thought it would go away after the baby comes out, but it actually has gotten worse.
What can i do to relieve this symptom?

ENT Specialist 's  Response
hi and thanks for the query,
it looks like you may be having eustachian tube malfunction.
it is the tube that connects the nose to the ear.
you can instill 3 drops of decongestant nose drops like otrivin in each nostril 2 times a day for 5 days. follow it up with steam inhalation.
if you do not feel better then see an ENT specialist. it is possible that there is fluid in your ear.
