Taking steps in advance of hyperemesis gravidarum

NVP Counsellor
Date: 2007-02-01

Question:
We are planning to get pregnant again. I had hyperemesis gravidarum when I was pregnant with my first child. I am taking Preg Vit (from the makers of diclectin). I would like to know if I should take Vit B 6 as well to arm my self from a possible NVP? I felt terrible when I was pregnant I had to take 8 diclectin and gravol in between. I was hospitalized many times until finally was sent home an treated at home with IV every single day. Could I start to taking diclectin now. I am not pregnant yet. I am still waiting for my period so I can start my fertility treatment. I am just so scared to experience again what I had experience before. I got pregnant 2 years ago and decided to terminate it because of the pain I was suffering. Please help me go through this pregnacy if ever. Thank you.

Answer:
You may want start the Diclectin the moment you find out that you are pregnant. As well, please call our toll free NVP hlepline at 1 800 436-8477 for more detailed information.
