Seasonal allergies have become increasingly an issue for many people in the recent years. There are many prescription and over-the-counter medications to choose from, but a lot of them have side effects, and work only for certain situations and not others. Some may work for a while, and then stop working. Some make you drowsy. Steroids are used for extreme cases - but they weaken the immune system and are definitely not safe for use during pregnancy. Antihistamines inhibits mucus secretion - which can have an impact on fertility by altering the quality of cervical mucus.

Although there are a handful of allergy medications that are generally safe for use during pregnancy, many choose to avoid the use of medication altogether.
