Hello, thanks for the question.
Increased stomach acid can cause ulcer disease or dyspepsia, a collection of symptoms that are characterized by heartburn, flatulence, and can be accompanied by nausea and vomiting. This stomach acid can increase in several conditions, one of which is pregnancy. During pregnancy, hormonal changes occur in the body, this can trigger an increase in stomach acid, especially in early pregnancy. Apart from pregnancy, some other things that trigger an increase in stomach acid include unhealthy lifestyles, such as smoking, consuming too much caffeine, alcohol, soft drinks, eating too fast or too much, eating spicy foods, eating irregularly, and can also caused by H. pylori infection, or due to stress or psychological factors, etc. Symptoms can generally heal itself without treatment, but if it continues to cause nausea, excessive vomiting and no intake of food or fluids that enter the body, especially in pregnant conditions, you should consult a doctor. The doctor will do a direct examination and additional examinations such as blood tests, ultrasound, endoscopy, and others. Treatment will be adjusted to the condition and severity of the disease. The doctor will give medication or suggest hospitalization if the complaint is very severe and disturbing. To reduce and prevent complaints, it is best to keep a healthy lifestyle, eat healthy and nutritious foods, eat small portions and often to help reduce nausea, eat regularly and consume soft foods first, avoid foods that are too fast and too much, and avoid spicy food, oily, bersantan, cigarettes, caffeine, alcohol, soft drinks. We recommend the consumption of drugs given by doctors regularly, multiply the consumption of water, and adequate rest. If you experience complaints of abdominal pain accompanied by black bowel movements, weakness, and vomiting of blood you should immediately consult a doctor.
Thus, hopefully it helps.
