HG’s Impact on Patients and Families
Hyperemesis gravidarum (HG) is a devastating condition to many women and their families. It can result in a loss of their job and future career, as well as render them completely dependent on those around them. Some women are ill for only a few months; others for their entire pregnancy, vomiting until the actual birth of their child; and a small number continue vomiting postartum for reasons unknown.
It can be traumatic emotionally, and some women choose to forego future pregnancy plans. Often, proactive and aggressive treatment can alleviate some of the misery and lessen the negative impact on a woman's life.
