Soar Throat

Has anyone ever experienced a soar throat during early pregnancy. I have a soar throat but no other signs of a cold not even a stuffy nose. I wonder if this could have something to do with pregnancy?

I had swollen glands/sore throat but I think it was due to feeling stuffy and having drainage. Is it your glands or the throat itself that is sore?

I'm not sure, it just feels like a typical soar throat. Usually if I am getting a cold I have a stuffy nose and what not and then a soar throat comes. I've never just had a soar throat by itself. There is some drainage in the back of my throat though.

It is said that during pregnancy you can have lots of stuffy noses...sore throats usually come from post nasal drip...you say that you have drainage..that is probably your answer..normal for a pregnant woman..of course if you start a temp..or any other symptoms you may want to get checked out by a doc..just to be safe.

I am a__suming you are pregnant? If so, the sore throat is normal as you also have drip down the back of your throat. It could also be due to the seasonal changes taking place right now.

That's true too, I'm not sure if I'm pregnant or not yet - have taken some at home negative tests and I am scheduled to get a blood test. I have had other symptoms off and on so I just have no idea right now - many mixed thoughts that I am trying to sort. Thanks for the help!

This is probably a stupid question but how is pregnancy and post nasal drip related?

Honestly I have no clue. I know the stuffiness is due to hormones and swollen mucous membranes. Maybe the swollen mucous membranes cause post nasal drip? I am not sure. All I know is that I have been stuffed up for 5 months, lol.
