Risk Of Miscarriage Reduced With ‘Morning Sickness’


The recent studies suggest that ‘morning sickness’ may reduce the risk of miscarriage in women. The vomiting and nausea caused during the pregnancy protect the foetus against disease-causing organisms and toxins. During pregnancy, you might feel nauseatic, and for some, they tend to vomit, and these symptoms usually begin in the morning and generally settle as the day progresses. This is often called “morning sickness”.
The feeling of nausea and vomiting subside by the fourth month of the pregnancy for almost all the women. But, how is the sickness caused? No one actually knows the cause of morning sickness. However, the researchers have proposed that it guards the foetus against the toxins and disease-causing organisms in beverages and the foods.Stefanie N Hinkle, who is the study’s first author, from The National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) in the US says that it is a common belief that nausea means a healthy pregnancy. However, there was not a lot of high-quality data to support this view.

Hinkle says that their study assesses symptoms from the earliest weeks of pregnancy, shortly after conception, and confirms that there is a protective connection between nausea and vomiting and a reduced risk of pregnancy loss.
Hinkle, along with her colleagues, examined the data from the Effects of Aspirin in Gestation and Reproduction trial, for their study, during which researchers tested whether taking the daily low-dose aspirin blocks women who underwent one or two prior pregnancy losses from encountering a future loss. The researchers viewed the data from all the women in the study, who had a positive pregnancy test.The women kept daily records of whether they felt vomiting and nausea in the 2nd till their eighth week of their pregnancies and then reacted to a monthl
questionnaire on their signs through the 36th week of pregnancy.Other than that, the researchers also noted that most previous investigations on nausea and pregnancy loss were not able to get such detailed data on indications in these early weeks of pregnancy.
Alternatively, most of the studies depended on the women’s recollection of symptoms much later in pregnancy or after they had encountered a pregnancy loss.A total of around 797 women had positive pregnancy tests, with almost 188 pregnancies ending in a loss, in the EAGeR trial,Around 57.3 percent of the women notified feeling nausea and 26.6 percent reported nausea with vomiting, by the eighth week of pregnancy.Moreover, the researchers observed that these women were 50 to 75 percent less expected to experience a pregnancy loss when compared to those women who had not experienced nausea followed by vomiting or perhaps nausea alone.
There has been some previous evidence that “morning sickness” may be a useful thing. However, the studies proving it have had a few methodological problems. The recent one appears to be well-executed though, tracking women before they were pregnant and checking for conceivably confounding determinants like age,exercise level,weight,the number of previous births and chromosomal differences and miscarriages.
