Epistaxis is a frequent condition that affects up to 70% of the general population at some point in their lives. A smaller percentage of people will experience recurring or habitual epistaxis during pregnancy, which is linked to postpartum hemorrhage. The goal of this study was to determine the prevalence of epistaxis among pregnant women and the relationship between it and postpartum hemorrhage. There was a statistically significant difference in the incidence of postpartum hemorrhage between patients with pregnancy epistaxis and patients without pregnancy epistaxis, according to the findings. Finally, the researchers found that though epistaxis is not a common complication during pregnancy, it does raise the risk of postpartum hemorrhage.
