Strange Desires in Pregnancy May Be a Sign of Disorders

Index

Desires beyond strangers may indicate the presence of PICA (disorder).

I have witnessed a lot in this life, including strange pregnancy desires that could make anyone shiver! Clay, chalk, block, brick, coal, fruit larvae and even blood! They are beyond eccentric desires. Pregnancy cravings can be a request from the body for some nutrient. For example, the desire for meat. Meat has a very important protein for the formation of baby’s tissues, so some women just want to eat meat or feel an impressive desire for this food. Women who desire sweets may be suffering from a significant drop in glucose in the body.

All of this is very expected and normal, the problem is when the strange desires in pregnancy exceed what would be expected. For example, the desire to eat washing powder! Industrial products like this for example, can be very harmful to the body and can represent an indication of psychological disorder. A good example of this is a 23 year old New Zealand resident, Michaela Martin. In her second pregnancy, Michaela developed an absurd urge to eat laundry detergent, like washing clothes. It all started in the third trimester, where she couldn’t resist smelling the soap, and once, she licked the box that triggered the disorder.

He began to ingest small amounts at the fingertips and gradually increased. The intention was to taste and smell the perfume of the washing powder and then rinse your mouth to avoid harm. But strangely he began to swallow and develop a preference for a certain brand and perfume . Michaela’s favorite was Surf Ylang Ylang. However, the disorder was contacted after a careful study by a group of doctors , who took into account that she also has a penchant for certain products in addition to washing powder. The next one is toothpaste.

The name of this disorder is PICA . It can make anyone a victim, craving from metals to even hair and animal feces, in general products not suitable for consumption and with no proven nutritional value and sometimes it can even be scary. The cause of the disease is unknown, but it is proven to be dangerous to the health of pregnancy. This disorder should be monitored and treated as soon as possible with therapy and medication in some cases.

The problem with this disorder is the toxicity of strange desires that the woman will feel and want to try. Therefore, if you feel a desire for something non-traditional, better talk to your doctor before going out to try. Powdered soap particularly has some toxic and lethal components like lye for example. In small amount in contact with the hands it is safe, but for the delicate lining of the stomach it can cause major problems with toxicity. Cravings are normal, but if you run away from traditional ones like nutella-covered anchovy pizza , then better check out what’s going on.
