My mouth tastes like butt!!!

OK soo it really doesn'y taste like butt but it sure is gross. I brush my teeth like 5+ times a day and still its nasty tasting. I was wondering if any of you have a metal/nasty taste and what you did to get rid of it. Everything I eat and drink tastes gross....

  • Have you been going to your dentist on a regular basis? If not you should go. Bad breath and bad taste in your mouth could be a sign of gum disease.

  • Are you taking the prenatal vitamins? You may want to ask your doc to switch you to one with less iron in it. Just a suggestion.

  • A "metal taste" can be a sign of diabetes. I would consult a dentist.

  • If i double up on my extra iron supplement (I forget that I've taken my pills sometimes) then I have a really bad taste. But its such a saturated feeling, I haven't been able to cure it.

  • Do you floss regularly? That could be the cause if you don't.

  • i went through it when I was pregnant! I HATED IT. What I did was swished some lemon juice in my mouth.... and lots of mouthwash. But the lemon juice worked the best. :)
