Date: 2001-10-18

Question:
How can I deal with a continuous sickness? I have no straight. I feel so bad. Sometimes I remenber an article I read that said that sickness is due to a not accepted pregnancy. Please answer my doubt.

Answer:
Nausea and vomiting of pregnancy is not caused by an unaccepted pregnancy. It is so common that 50 to 80 percent of all pregnant women experience these symptoms, mostly in their first trimester. If you are anywhere in North America, please call our Helpline at 1-800-436-8477 for further information. Viewing previous questions/answers and information on this site might also help. Wherever you are located, you should talk to your doctor for advice or treatment of your NVP when this condition affects your daily life.
