Pregnant & bad taste in mouth

Is it normal or should I go to the dentist or too much iron ?

  • Try the listerine patch thingys. I can't remember what the are Chew gum that has cinnamon in it. It will destroy any left over 'germs'. It helped me quite a bit.

  • OMG! me too!!! just found out I am pregnant with number two and that bad taste is always there! Even 10 minutes after brushing my teeth! I don't remember this with the first though I was puking constantly and this is much better than not being able to keep anything down. At least you know it won't last forever, but maybe the whole pregnancy...

  • If it tasts like you've been chewing on loose change it's normal. That was the first sign I had that I was pregnant.
