Pregnancy rhinitis is defined as a nasal congestion in the last six or more weeks of pregnancy, without other signs of respiratory tract infection and without known allergic cause, disappearing completely within two weeks after delivery. Some authors say that there is clinical proof of a correlation between pregnancy rhinitis and preeclampsia, preeclampsia being the most frequent cause of maternal and fetal morbidity and mortality. The relationship between these two pathologies lies in snoring. Because of the pregnancy and its limitations for treatment options, most studies talk about the importance of educational measures as first choice of managing the symptoms of pregnancy rhinitis.
