Hi I am 7 weeks pregnant.. I want to ask is it safe to eat papaya during pregnancy

Sheeba Vijesh

do not eat papaya... the gum in it is said to cause uterine contractions. it takes really great amount to have any effect, but why take chances. that said, i did have very ripe papaya in late pregnancy, but i am not recommending it...

hie dear,  no papaya is not safe to eat during pregnancy. My doctor said not to eat papaya and pineapple during pregnancy. tc 😊

No papaya.. no pineapple as wel.  It's not safe. I agree with Dhara and sheeba.

Frankly my doc said eat all fruits but in moderation. According to her eating a ripe papaya in moderation does no harm and helps in relieving from problems of constipation. But all the elders in my house stopped me from having it coz of the counter belief. In case you plan to eat do ask your doctor about it.


Thank you so much all for ur valuable responses.. 😊
