You can take loratadine while pregnant so would presumably be fine while ttc

I am currently pregnant and was given piriton by the doctor, my midwife also advised it’s this one I should be taking. It does say drowsy on the packet but I haven’t had any symptoms of drowsiness.

I got hayfever for the first time when pregnant. I was told I could t take anything. That baby is now 21 so obviously things have changed. That’s good.

I was told by a pharmacist no anti histamines at all when ttc. You need the histamines in your uterus to help with conception or gestation. (She obviously said it more scientifically)

try a low histamine diet and avoiding all foods with high histamines. Add low histamine foods (watercress and rocket are particularly helpful to me so I choke them down) Keep stress low, use eye and nose washes to get the pollen out. Shower the pollen off your skin and hair before bed and change clothes as soon as you get in.

drinking fresh mint leaves in hot water instead of tea always calms down my symptoms too.

good luck!
