I have hyperthyroidism and I am 7 months pregnant these days. I often get nosebleeds. Is it dangerous? and can I have a normal birth?
Hello CItra, Thank you for the question.
Have you checked your doctor for further examination? In the walls of the nasal cavity there are small blood vessels that are located near the surface of the skin so that they are easily broken and damaged in conditions such as blowing nose too strong, dry air, experiencing rhinitis or sinusitis, impact on the nose, side effects of using certain drugs, and others. Nosebleeds are a mild condition that is generally harmless. However, you need to be aware of this due to certain medical conditions if you have symptoms: nosebleeds for more than 30 minutes, nosebleeds with excessive bleeding, frequent nosebleeds in a short time, palpitations, pale, difficulty breathing, fever, or bleeding on the part other body. If you experience the symptoms above, please immediately see your doctor for further examination.
Do you take medication regularly and see a specialist in internal medicine regularly to overcome this hyperthyroidism? Hyperthyroidism is a condition in which the level of thyroid hormone (thyroxine) is higher in the blood. This condition can cause a number of complications in pregnancy if the condition is not well controlled such as preeclampsia, heart failure in pregnant women, premature birth, and low body weight in babies born. Therefore, it is important for you to always check your thyroid condition with a specialist in internal medicine and check the condition of your pregnancy with your obstetrician.
Whether or not you can give birth normally depends on a number of conditions such as the size of your pelvis, the weight of the baby in the womb, the baby's position in the womb (whether breech or not), the complications during pregnancy such as placenta previa, the health condition of pregnant women, and others. Please consult with your obstetrician further. The doctor will examine you and your baby's condition to find out what delivery methods you can undergo.
In the meantime, please maintain your pregnancy health by:
consuming balanced nutritious food soaking up your resting water intake by getting enough light exercise or following pregnancy exercises by regularly managing stress well avoiding consumption of drugs without doctor's advice May help.
