TTC and allergies
I suffer from chronic urticaria. I get it to the point that my face and lips swell, my throat closes, etc.

So my husband and i have decided that we want a baby. I am on Fexo 180 everyday to control the allergy (no idea what i am allergic to). Is Fexo safe to take while trying to conceive or even during a pregnancy?

Hi Sally
One would only use Fexo in pregnancy if the benefit exceeds the possible dangers - normally one would not give this to a pregnant woman. Chlor Trimeton may be a safer choice to use during pregnancy.
