Metallic Taste in Mouth during pregnancy? Why is it caused?

Created On : March 20, 2015

During the first trimester of Pregnancy, Dysgeusia is experienced by women all over the world. Dysgeusia is a medical term used to explain a metallic taste during pregnancy which persists even when you are not eating anything.

Pregnancy Hormones such as Estrogen are known to play a major role in controlling as well as moderating the sense of taste. During pregnancy, the estrogen levels tend to fluctuate suddenly. The sense of taste and sense of smell during pregnancy are intimately connected which may lead you to experience the metallic taste during pregnancy.

Dysgeusia is very common amongst women all over the world, just as morning sickness is. In most of the cases, the taste may tend to go away during the second trimester of the pregnancy.

It is recommended to brush your tongue every time you brush your teeth or should rinse off your mouth with a mild salt solution or baking soda for that matter. This helps to neutralize the pH levels in the mouth and keeps away the flinty flavor in the mouth.
