NVP Symptoms and Effects
I am now 19 weeks pregnant and am still feeling and being sick about 3 or 4 times a week. When will it go, it is ruining my life.
Unfortunately, NVP can sometimes last longer than the first trimester. In Canada, many women experiencing NVP are prescribed Diclectin. When they call our Helpline at 1-800-436-8477 we suggest that they stay on the medication until they have no more symptoms at all and only then wean themselves off, one pill at a time.
Why not give us a call for further information? You should also talk to your doctor to determine whether these occasional episodes of NVP are triggered by anything else.
