Doctor :   Hi
Doctor :   How can i help you?
Doctor :   Please proceed with your query.
User :   I am currently 6 wks pregnant and have had quite bad morning sickness today (thrown up twice) and also had loose stools (4 times) Is this common for this stage? My 3 yr old daughter is showing all the signs of thread worm is it possible I have this also?
Doctor :   First of all coming to your morning sickness, yes it is very common to have morning sickness at this stage. Since when are you having loose motions?
User :   Just started this morning - not diarrhea - just pain & looser motions & more frequent than usual
Doctor :   Loose motions can also be present due to hormonal changes and food disorder.
Doctor :   Loose motions are to be monitored right now. You need to have lots of water and Electrol to prevent dehydration
User :   Thanks for your help - I have treated my daughter for threadworm, but haven't taken anything myself because of pregnancy - is there any natural remedies to prevent them?
Doctor :   You can also have LACTOBACILLUS tablets 3 times a day for motion controlling as they may make you very weak.
User :   Thanks for your help!
Doctor :   For threadworm COCONUT oil is the best remedy. You can take 1 tbsp of freshly grated coconut first thing in morning
