NVP and nose bleeding

NVP Counselor
Date: 2004-04-23

Question:
I am five weeks pregnant, and I have been having morning sickeness for about a week now, mostly really bad nausea, but today i started vomiting around 614 am, and havent stopped, and this is accompained by nose bleeds, every time i vomit. Is it normal for morning sickness to last all day and have nose bleeds following vomiting?

Answer:
NVP can be progressive and involve severe vomiting. However, this is not commonly associated with nose bleeding. The nose bleeding should be discussed with your doctor, as it could have causes other than the pregnancy.
