Hi, and thanks for your query on eHealth forum!

It is very important to keep asthma under control during pregnancy so that the baby gets enough oxygen. Most women manage very well on inhalers. Most asthma inhaler medications are safe in pregnancy as they are directly used in lungs at very low doses. However, it is very important to inform your asthma specialist and Obs and Gyn regarding this. It is very important to keep a check on oxygen saturation at every doctor visit. Avoid pollution and other allergens that trigger an attack.

Please consult your healthcare provider for further guidance. This reply to your query is just for education and counseling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit and treatment by a doctor who can examine you. Hope this helped you in making an informed decision about your health. Take care!
