In the case phase an elastic band (Sea band) has been fastened over the wrist on p6 for 5 days, then in the control phase the same elastic band has been fastened over the same area on the other wrist to fulfil our placebo effect 100 pregnant women have been assessed where 76% were primigravid and 84% were 17-24 years old. In 58% of all cases, gestational age of 10-12 wecks has been detected. Results have implied that number, duration, and severity of nausea and the number of vomiting were significantly different in the case group.
