Nausea To Vomiting Blood During Pregnancy?
Hello, I’m 17 weeks pregnant. I was classified as not experiencing excessive nausea, vomiting since early pregnancy, only when brushing my teeth that like nausea. Usually when there is vomiting comes out in the form of very little food but if in the morning only saliva comes out. Just now I experienced vomiting accompanied by fresh blood, I thought it was my bleeding gums but when I made sure again it turned out it wasn’t bleeding gums. Is this common for young pregnant women like me? Or is there something else that I should worry about due to vomiting of this blood? Please explain doctor. Thanks.
Hello Mrs. Rachmah! Congratulations on your pregnancy! Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Hormonal changes in early pregnancy can indeed cause nausea and vomiting. Not an easy thing to overcome this nausea, vomiting. Vomiting that is too often can cause irritation of the upper gastrointestinal tract. This irritation can sometimes cause bleeding. Bleeding due to irritation is usually only a small amount (splash) and will improve if nausea, vomiting successfully overcome. In other words, the important thing for you to do is to overcome the nausea and vomiting. If the nausea, vomiting has stopped but there is still bleeding, you should immediately see a doctor to be examined directly. Mothers may experience other diseases. If you bleed a lot of blood, immediately come to the nearest hospital emergency room. You should also see a doctor immediately if nausea, vomiting occurs frequently or until it causes you to feel weak, pale, or experience weight loss. At the beginning of this pregnancy, you should check with your obstetrician at least once. The rest, mothers can check themselves routinely to general practitioners or to midwives.
That's all information from me. I hope this helps.
