I had HG and don't feel back to normal. How do I recover?

Postby admin » May 26, 2004 11:50 pm

Recovering from hyperemesis gravidarum (HG) can take a few months or as long as two years. It will often take 1-2 months of recovery for every month you were ill. Women who have nausea/vomiting into late pregnancy usually find it takes several months to regain their energy and restore their nutritional reserves. Food aversions may persist and take months to overcome. HG can be very traumatic for many women and it can take even more time for emotional recovery. It is important to seek professional help as needed, especially before you plan another pregnancy.

Any complications during pregnancy should be evaluated postpartum by a primary care doctor to ensure complete healing.
