Question:
I'm 6 weeks pregnant now.Starting from my 6th week I'm having continuous vomitings daily,Almost twice a day some times.I'm unable to eat anything although I feel very hungry because of fear that I may vomit.Please help me with this.Thanks in advance.

Answer:
You do not need to suffer from nausea and vomiting of pregnancy as there are safe treatments. If you live in Canada ask your doctor about prescribing you Diclectin, the drug of choice here. As well, if you live anywhere in North America, you can call our toll free line 1 800 436-8477 to ask about different treatments for this condition. Alternatively, you may download our treatment algorithm to give to your doctor, which will help him/her to decide which is the safest and most effective treatment for this condition that is available in your country.
