Answer:
Nausea and vomiting can start at any time in pregnancy and this is not too early. However, you need to confirm your pregnancy with a blood test done at you doctor's office which is the most accurate. If you find out that you are definitely pregnant and are suffering from NVP, you may want to call our tollfree NVP Helpline at 1 800 436-8471 and speak to one of our counsellors who will give you information on how to treat your symptoms.
