Methods: In a clinical trial study, 100 primigravid women with gestational age of 10-16 weeks, single fetus and complaint of nausea and vomiting were selected randomly from referrers to health care centers for prenatal care. They were divided equally to two groups: acupressure using Sea Band as case group and placebo Sea Band as control group. In acupressure group, buttoned Sea Band and in control group, placebo sea band were placed on Neiguan point of hand. Nausea severity and vomiting frequency were recorded. Checklist was filled for every person and all participants received forms for recording nausea and vomiting status for 4 days. Data analysis was done by SPSS software using Chi square, t-test and Wilcoxon tests.
Results: Results showed that there is a significant difference in nausea severity and frequency of vomiting in case group before and after treatment (P<0.001). There was not a significant difference in reduction of nausea severity and frequency of vomiting in control group.
