im 6 months 2 weeks pregnant and having a craving for clay,its sometimes so much severe that i can't resist and just go for it.HELP PLZZZZ!!!!
Hello and welcome to HCM,
A craving for clay is called 'pica'.
Pica occurs due to iron deficiency anemia.
Iron deficiency anemia is common during pregnancy.
Get your hemogram done (hemoglobin, RBC count, MCV, MCH, MCHC and RDW).
Iron deficiency is treated with iron supplements.
Iron supplements are given during pregnancy irrespective whether the woman is anemic or not.
