Hello doctor,

I am having a bloating for the past three days, I never had one. I had my period around this month beginning. Is there any possibility that I am pregnant? Is it any sign of pregnancy? I am having Sibelium 10 mg for migraine.



Welcome to

Bloating sensation can be related to any sort of diet changes. Check if you incorporated anything new in your food habits. Any increased coffee or tea intake, sometimes physical or emotional stress can lead to acidity and bloating. Rule out all such things. Morning sickness is commonly associated with pregnancy, but it is too early to say about pregnancy. If you had an episode of unprotected intercourse, you can perform pregnancy test two weeks following that specific date. For now, you can take tablet Pan D (Pantoprazole with Domperidone) twice a day before meals for three days to relieve the bloating sensation.
