Pregnant women on most occasions find themselves spitting more often. This makes people around them to dislike them and some even separate themselves from their friends due to this behavior.

This condition of producing too much saliva is called ptyalism. People with ptyalism might produce one to two litres of saliva daily. This condition happens to women during their early stages of pregnancy. It is normal and it has no harm to the baby growing inside the womb

Excessive saliva can be upsetting and uncomfortable.

Excessive saliva and the first trimester

Ptyalism is common during the first trimester of pregnancy. You might need to spit out some saliva into a tissue quite often, and the bitter taste of the saliva can cause nausea and vomiting. The good news for most women is that it should ease after the first trimester.

Causes of excessive saliva

As with most things in pregnancy, your hormones are to blame for excessive saliva. It can also be caused by pregnancy sickness as nausea can make women try to swallow less, especially in those with extreme morning sickness.

Other causes include heartburn, which is common in pregnancy, and irritants like smoke, toxins and some medical conditions.

Treatments for excessive saliva

While there is no medical treatment for ptyalism, you may be able to ease symptoms by:

Eating smaller but more frequent meals.

Brushing your teeth and using mouthwash several times a day.

Chewing sugarless gum or sucking hard sweets.

Taking frequent small sips of water.

Spitting can sometimes be discouraging. You may find that a woman can spit in a three liter container in a day. Actually you won't find this a good thing when you sit near such a person.
