Hi bees! So I have year-round allergies and take zyrtec D daily or else I wake up with awful sinus headaches. Sometimes I still get headaches and use decongestants (over the counter, generic decongestants or Advil decongestant).
That said, I have been seeing how antihistamines can affect cervical mucus while TTC, and saw a report a few weeks ago linking decongestants during pregnancy to birth defects.
Both antihistamines and decongestants are part of my daily life and I don’t know what other alternatives are out there to use as substitutes. Has anyone had any experience with this or any recommendations? I also have/use a neti pot when necessary and I’m not afraid of saline rinse, etc.
