Usually 2-4 thirty-five minute treatments within one week will show great improvement in the nausea and vomiting. For more intense cases of nausea and vomiting during pregnancy, 3-4 treatments within one week will help determine prognosis, and 4-6 treatments within 10-14 days will determine whether or not acupuncture will play a successful role in the treatment of the condition.
