Materials and Methods: This survey was a double blind randomized placebo trial with control group. For this purpose, 135 pregnant women till 20 weeks of gestation suffering from vomiting were participated. They were randomly and equally divided into placebo (starch), control, and ginger (365 mg capsules, 3 times/day for 4 days) groups. The episods of vomiting were recorded before and after the study (follow up period) and statistical analysis was done. 




Results: There was not a significant difference between the 3 groups about matching items. Meanwhile, in ginger group, there was a significant difference before and after ginger administration regarding number of vomiting episodes (p<0.001). In placebo group, number of vomiting episodes had also a significant difference before and after intervention at days 1-4 (p<0.005). Comparison of the three groups showed that there was a significant difference between number of vomiting episodes after intervention at days 1-4 (p<0.005).
