Question:

Pregnant and Vomiting Blood

Dear Ask The Doctor:
I am seven months pregnant and I vomited a lot of blood this morning what do I do?


Answer:

Vomiting blood in pregnancy is never a normal finding. Please call the ER or go there immediately. This could be due to a bleeding gastric ulcer or pre-eclampsia. You should not ignore if you have severe blood vomiting in pregnancy as it can lead to complications if not treated at the earliest.
