Hello doctor,

I am very concerned and need an answer. I am seven weeks and pregnant and have had no complications so far. But, today, my clitoris feels way smaller then it did yesterday. And I am way more nauseous then I have been. I cannot stand or sit up for too long before I am rushing to the bathroom to gag and dry heave, but not throw up.

I cannot get into my doctor for 10 days, but I am very scared that something is wrong. I am 19 years old, have a uterine fibroid which my doctor said should not interfere with baby, and cysts on my left ovary. My clitoris is smaller, no sensation, very dry, and is sore. I am taking Keflex (Cefalexin) for a uti and Zantac for acid reflux. Please get back to me as soon as possible. Do I need to go to the ER, or am I paranoid with my first pregnancy?

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Please do not be scared, and the vaginal symptoms are due to uti (urinary tract infection). Take a lot of water and a warm bath (not hot but warm) to relieve those symptoms. Nausea is a part of morning sickness, and besides Zantac, you can take Doxinate tablets twice a day for seven days. Also, increasing the intake of bananas will provide you comfort as they are rich in vitamin B6. Do not take any other medication than Keflex, Zantac, Doxinate, and Folvite (folic acid). I hope this helps.

The Probable causes:

hyperemesis gravidarum

Treatment plan:

vitamin b6
