Pregnancy Nausea 懷孕作嘔  (in English and Chinese 中英文)


Edited by: Joe Hing Kwok Chu       按此看中文


Nausea is common during early stages of pregnancy. It usually lasts for about three months but some women may still have them into fourth or fifth month of pregnancy.


Pregnant women without morning sickness have more than double the incidences of miscarriage than those with morning sickness. Some studies show that 10% of those without morning sickness had miscarriage while those with morning sickness had 4% of miscarriage.


One of the formulae can be used:


Formula 1:


Taking 1 to 2 grams of pickled ginger (ginger soaked in vinegar), 3 times per day may help relieve nausea.

Pickled ginger is available in Chinese or Japanese grocery stores or make it yourself at home.


Formula 2:

dang shen  9 g, dang gui    9 g, bai zhu   9 g, bai shao  12 g, fu ling  12 g, chen pi  6 g, liu shen qu  12 g, sha ren   3 g (to be added to the pot during last 5 minutes of cooking), jiang ban xia  9 g.



Adjustment of formula﹕

  1. flatulence﹕subtract dang shen , and add huo xiangmu xiang  ﹐xiang fu zi 

  2.  palpitation﹕ add suan zao renyuan zhi .

  3. weakness with pain in the loin﹕add du zhong ,  huang qi .

  6. vomiting is serious : add fu long gan
