Metallic taste

Dear Dr Amy,

I am 11 weeks pregnant and in the last few days have been getting a very stong taste of metal in my mouth. Can you please tell my what may be causing this ? Is it related to the pregnancy? Is it normal?

Thank you kindly,

Dear Julie,

It is related to the pregnancy. Some pregnant women experience a metallic taste in early pregnancy. No one understands why this happens. Fortunately, it usually goes away at the end of the first trimester.
