Morning sickness during early pregnancy. No help with medicines. Having white discharge. Normal?

Hi I was just wondering a couple of things. I am 9 weeks pregnant and have been experiencing a lot of morning sickness throughout my day. My doctor gave me pills to help but they don t seem to work is there anything else I can try because I cannot keep anything down even the prenatal vitamins are coming back up. Also I am having quite a bit of white discharge I was just wondering what causes this and is it normal?

Thank you for your query.
Morning sickness in early pregnancy is quite common.
You can try taking medicines like Doxinate or Sinate, as they are very effective for morning sickness.
If you cannot tolerate any liquids or solids, you might need hospitalization as severe dehydration can affect the baby.
Try eating a dry toast first thing in the morning before getting up from bed.
Avoid oily , spicy and greasy food.
Take bland, light diet, and make sure you are taking enough folic acid and B complex vitamins.
Take small frequent meals ( every 2 - 3 hours ), with more emphasis on fluids.
Do not binge eat.
IF the condition is not controlled, it is called hyperemesis gravidarum, where you need hospitalization and further investigations.
take care

Thanks for the query.

Some amount of nausea and vomitings are common in pregnancy. But as you are having excessive vomitings you have to change the anti-emetic you are taking. Better to take antacids and anti-emetics in combination which will give more relief.
You have to maintain your hydration. Try to take small amount of food in more frequent intervels which will increase the tolerance.
Physiological white discharge increases during pregnancy. If that is not accompanied by smell or itching no need to worry about it.

Take care.
