I am very scared of having another child again and having HG. I was in the hospital for pretty much the whole time and no doctors could help me I was sent to several hospitals with no luck. I want to have another child but I need a doctor that can help. Any advice out there. I have been on all medications including zofran no help.
Try not to be scared. Your next pregnancy may be different. Contact your local hospital's maternity ward and prenatal classes to find a doctor within your community who is experienced in handling HG pregnancies. Also, it is common not to recognize NVP symptoms, during the first pregnancy. Now you are more experienced and can start treatment sooner -- this can make a difference.
If you were treated in an optimal manner with all the medications normally used for NVP, to no effect, you may want to exclude all other possible causes of your symptoms. For example, H. Pylori (a stomach bacteria) has been seen as causing severe HG-like symptoms. Once H. Pylori is diagnosed, it requires a different treatment. You might also want to go through your medical history with your family doctor to rule out any other contributing factors.
