Brief Answer:
Likely to be normal

Detailed Answer:
Hi dear, I have gone through your question and understand your concerns.
Vomiting and nausea usually stops by 12 weeks of pregnancy, but in some patients, it continues for throughout the pregnancy.
However, other causes of excessive vomiting, especially the liver disease should be ruled out.
I will suggest her to get her liver function test and ultrasound of the liver done, if normal then it is the vomiting due to pregnancy and you need not worry.
I suggest her to stop taking livogen, as iron also leads to gastritis and vomiting.
She can take Doxinate tablet safely throughout the pregnancy, it has no adverse effect on the fetus or the mother. She should take one tablet each in morning and afternoon, and 2 tablets at the bedtime.
She should also avoid tea and eating fruits empty stomach. She can take a toast or a dry biscuit on waking up, empty stomach.
All these measures will definitely help her to get relieved of the vomiting.
Hope you found the answer helpful. Please do get back for further queries.
Wishing you both good health.

Brief Answer:
Iron tablets should be stopped completely for few days

Detailed Answer:
Hi dear, i am happy to have helped you.
I suggest you to stop taking iron tablets for at least 2-3 weeks completely.
Thereafter, you can restart it again. If your hemoglobin is more than 10 gm/dl, you can stop taking iron tablet for few days safely.
Hope you found the answer helpful.

Dear Respected panel, I have some gestric problems and suffer from sudden diorrea, stomuch pains even if i am eating simple home cooked food. Such attacks last for a week or so when I have bloating of the stomuch, increased level of acidity etc. These atttacks are repeated almost every two months. Recently I did a CT Scan and the findings were There is evidence of Sigmoid Diverticulosis with no evidence of acute inflammation. I am also on these medication: Amlopin 5mg, Batacod 50mg,Valzaar 80, Clopivas 75 AP, Tonact TG, Folvite 5mg, Multivitamin. As the blood test shows increased level of CPK value, I have been advised to cut out Tonact TG. The Gestro specialist has asked me to take Selace Forte and Maxep daily. My Questions are. 1. what is the medication I should take in place of Tonact TG. Most other Statins have side effects on me ( headac, non Concentration). 2. what is the remidy for Signoid Divertucolisis. 3. Are there any side effects of Selace Forte and Maxepa on me as I am on Blood pressure reducing medication and Clopivas AP 75 which is a blood thinner. I regularly walk 5 km daily, do my back stretches and play golf twice a week. I am 63 years old, weight 65kg, height 5 10 . I would be very greatful if you would advice me in the matter.

I am 30 yrs old and got married before 3 yrs. We keep trying for a baby which have not succeded yet. We also made a sperm test to my husband which showed a positive result. FYI: I am an Indian.

We also made a test on my side which showed no negative results. My weight is nearing 72kg.
Moreover i intake tablets oxetol 600mg (1-0-1), Lobazom 10 mg(0-0-1) with folvite 5mg (1-0-0) for my neuro problem.

I am unable to analyze the fault which delays my pregnancy - can you say me whether these tablet intakes can affect my pregnancy?
