My seasonal hayfever is really bothering me the last couple of days. I am trying to stay away from Benedryl and other antihistamines, as they can dry up CM.

I use a saline nose rinse but that doesn't do nearly enough for the sinus pressure, headaches and itchy/sore throat and eyes, not to mention my resulting irritability.

Any healthy remedies out there you know of for women TTC? Thanks!

Achoo!

Flonase...it is taken nasally and works wonders for allergies. You need a script but it will not affect CM -- works on nasal tissues. My DH is highly allergic to cats, but with the Flonase, kitty can even sleep on him.


kind of a cute story: when my DH met me, I had a cat...DH couldn't be in the same room. He liked me and he liked the cat, so he got onto this drug and has taken it ever since -- going on 11 years. This is how my mom said she knew he was "the one".
