Question: Hi, My wife is BHMS doctor and she had missed abortion history in Apr-2013. Then it is followed by clearing uterus by medicine only, and no DnC done. She is 33 yrs old and her mc is regular and all blood test reports are normal. Now she is pregnant of 6 weeks.Doctor has given Dupastone, aspirine and folic acid tablet. But from the Dupastone tablet she is feeling nausea, drauziness and no appetite. She feels sleepy in everytime. Whenever she eat, she omits all those within 15 minutes. Can u suggest why it is happening. even if she doesn't eat she omits and it is very painful to omit when nothing come except some foaming water.

Brief Answer: Due to pregnancy and duphastone. Detailed Answer: Hello, Thanks for trusting us with your health concern. The symptoms that your wife is having is due to pregnancy and the side effects of Duphaston. Your wife is having Morning Sickness and it is absolutely common to have this in the first three months of pregnancy. If the nausea is bad to the extent that she just cannot keep anything down, then you can get Doxylamine prescribed from your gynecologist. Please take regular folic acid supplements. Try to have a variety of the following foods each day: Fresh fruits and vegetables. Starchy foods, such as rice, rotis (including mixed grain or stuffed roti), whole grain bread, pasta, and baked/boiled potatoes. Foods rich in protein, such as lean meat and chicken, eggs, pulses (such as beans and lentils) and soya nuggets. Dairy foods, such as milk, cheese, cottage cheese and yoghurt. Do not remain hungry. Take six small meals instead of three large meals. Do take electrolyte rich fluids to avoid fluid and electrolyte imbalance. Doxylamine taken three ties a day will help in significant improvement. Please feel free to discuss further. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have. Wishing you good health. Regards. Dr. Rakhi Tayal.

Brief Answer: Yes. This is right. Detailed Answer: Hello. Thanks for writing again. The treatment given is correct. This will help in preventing the recurrent nausea and vomiting that she is having. Do take the medicines as prescribed. The vaginal progesterone therapy will have lesser systemic side effects like nausea. Hope my answer is helpful. If you do not have any clarifications, you can close the discussion and rate the answer. Wish you good health. Regards
