    Abstract

    Hyperemesis gravidarum (HG) has a detrimental effect on physical and mental health. Termination of pregnancy (TOP) is reported in approximately 10%,1 and qualitative research studies report an association with suicidal ideation.2 We aimed to determine the consequences of HG on TOP and suicidal ideation, with particular reference to disease severity, functional status, and perception of care.
