I am currently 15 week pregnant and have been using Diclectin since my 6 weeks. This past weekend, I stopped using the medication by thinking that I should have passed over the NVP period (at least on the stage of getting better) as I am in my 15 weeks. However, I had an awful weekend, starting serious vomiting and terrible nausea again. I had to retake the medication. My question is how I can test that Iím over the NVP period since I am on the medication? What is the right method to reduce/stop using Diclectin and how can I know that it is the time to try? Thanks a lot for the help.
First of all, unfortunately not all women 's NVP stops after the first trimester, some suffer throughout the whole pregnancy and require medication. Secondly, you should not stop the medication suddenly as it should be tapered off gradually. For more information on how to know when to try stopping the medication please call our toll free line at 1 800-436 8477 and speak to one of our specially trained counselors.
