Question:
Hi My wife has severe nvp.She is on 8 1/2 weeks.Her last pregnancy was 41/2 years ago.She had hg and hypertension then.She has since been diagnost with vertigo.Do you know of any relationship between vertigo and nvp? She says that her sickness does not feel the same as when she had bouts of vertigo. Also she was on vertigo meds jsut prior to getting pregnant.Do see any problems with this? Thank you for your time.(thank you for this web site) worried husband

Answer:
We are unaware of a relationship between vertigo and nvp. However, when a woman is pregnant pre-existing health issues can make NVP/HG symptoms worse and should be addressed. The safety of treatments for other conditions can be discussed with a teratogen information specialist at Motherisk or at a teratogen information service near you.
