If my girlfriend has gastritis is it safe to have

Patient: If my girlfriend has gastritis is it safe to have a baby?

 

 

Doctor: Hi,Thanks for the query.I understand your concern.Having gastritis itself is not a contraindication for pregn ancy.Simple gastritis can be treated with antacids and dietary modifications.In case of severe gastritis, the cause of the problem should be evaluated and treated.In pregnancy antacids and antiemetics combination will help in treating nausea and gastritis.Take care.
