The Motherisk Nausea and Vomiting of Pregnancy (NVP) ForumMotherisk receives questions from around the world about morning sickness symptoms, effects, treatments and ways to cope. Those questions and answers are posted here for anyone to read, provided the reader acknowledges and accepts the proviso and disclaimer below.
My wife suffers from severe morning sickness, she always vomiting,nausea,smels every thing. I contacted a doctor he prescribed me a medicine, she took nothing changed, so what is the best action to cure? mogadishu-somalia
Typical treatments for NVP are listed in an algorithm posted on our website in the February 2002 Motherisk Update. You can see if the medication taken by your wife is included in that algorithm and discuss with your doctor if another medication might be indicated.
Some reports have also indicated that H.Pylori, a common stomach bacteria, can cause symptoms very similar to NVP. It is often overlooked in a pregnant woman suffering from NVP and the bacterial will not respond to the usual NVP treatment. Your wife should talk to her doctor about this possibility.
