Vomiting Continuously At 26 Weeks Gestation?
I still vomit continuously every meal at 26 weeks gestation. Anti-nausea drugs (ondansetron, primperan) given by doctors also do not work. Every time I vomit, I also urinate, tears and sometimes blood. Is this a disease? What to do if no drug works?
Good afternoon, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Nausea and vomiting, it is one of the symptoms that are often found in pregnant women, especially young pregnant. This is related to hormonal imbalances and the body's ability to adapt to changes that occur. The condition of nausea and vomiting is often also known as morning sickness (because it often occurs in the morning) and commonly occurs in the early 14 weeks.
But if this condition continues into the following weeks, or even until the baby is born, making pregnant women become weak, unable to work and normal activities, or occurring throughout the day, then it could be a condition called hyperemesis gravidarum.
Hyperemesis gravidarum is simply a condition of excessive nausea and vomiting experienced by pregnant women. The cause is still unknown, but is thought to be related to hormonal changes, and is influenced by a history of similar complaints in previous pregnancies, has a family history of similar complaints, contains daughters or twins, and suffers from grape pregnancy.
Our advice, you should check your condition to the obstetrician for further examination. If you have previously checked yourself at a general practitioner or midwife, this time check with your obstetrician. If you have previously been to an obstetrician, return for control. Indeed for nausea and vomiting there are several stages of the drug that need to be given because it considers the level of safety, so it does not mean that if the drugs given so far are ineffective you will be given the same medicine. If it is considered to have a severe condition, you may even be hospitalized to ensure that the nutrition you receive is sufficient. But basically, the treatment and treatment must be preceded by a doctor's examination, so you should immediately check yourself, both to the same obstetrician or another.
Meanwhile, what can be done to help reduce nausea during pregnancy is to avoid the scent, noise, flickering of light or other triggers for nausea, lots of rest and reduce motion, wear loose clothing, drink warm ginger water, consume dry snacks regularly, and consumption of foods with high carbohydrate content but low in fat. So, hopefully answering your question.
