Hi madam, Nose bleeds during pregnancy are a fairly common problem. They are usually due to increased blood flow through the flesh inside your nose. The increased blood flow is due to the great hormonal changes that are occurring in your body over the course of your pregnancy. As for your headaches, it may possibly be due to increased blood flow to the head. However, there may be other reasons for this like increased blood pressure, which may happen during pregnancy as well. I would encourage you to get your blood pressure checked at a nearby clinic. Hope this helps. - Dr. Liew **Disclaimer: all advice shared here is done within our capacity as a Family Practice on an educational basis.
