Published on April 16, 2016 by HTC Team

Several types of complications can appear during pregnancy, but most of them are not at all harmful. Hyperemesis Gravidarum is one of them. Hyperemesis Gravidarum is very normal during pregnancy. In this complication of pregnancy, the mother feels an urge to vomit many times and sometimes vomits too. Sometimes, this vomiting can happen many times during the day and might be excessive.

This could cause trouble for the patient, but it is not harmful to the baby, as this happens due to the pregnancy hormone – The Beta HCG. The Beta HCG starts rising during the first trimester of the pregnancy. The first trimester is from first to 16th week. The Beta HCG normally plateaus after 16 weeks of pregnancy.

Hyperemesis Gravidarum is usually managed by in-outpatient basis by anti-emetics and gastric medications. Normally during Hyper emesis Gravidarum in pregnancy, the patient is suggested to get admitted only if she is unable to eat or drink anything and has the chances of getting dehydrated. When the pregnant women are admitted, they are given IV fluids and anti-emetics as injectable. Hyperemesis Gravidarum is not at all harmful to the baby, as well as IV fluids and anti-emetics also do not affect the baby.
