Hello,
Thanks for trusting us with your health concern.
These fruits are avoided during early pregnancy as these can cause severe intestinal cramps if taken ion excess and can cause an abdominal pain. These can be taken in small amounts. Papaya contains papain enzyme that can cause uterine cramps also.
