    Yes I had it with both my pregnancies. Not all the time but I do recall having it. Not really that helpful to you though!!! I have no idea what causes it.

    Hopefully someone might be able to shed some light on the subject. Otherwise you might have to buy a packet of mints!!!

    I had it with this pregnancy, but not with DS. Made cooking........ Interesting. And a couple of times in-edible!

    I think I mainly had it in the first trimester. I cant remember when it stopped, was just glad it had!!

    I fount tic-tacs worked well and put lemon in my water as it tasted awfully metallic because of it.

    Check out this link... I think it's what you may have; common in pregnancy, caused by hormones..

    edit: try googling 'Dysgeusia during pregnancy' for a better search result, this link (I just realised) seems to be advertising something.. you might want to look for a more detailed site..

    Just googled it, and its normal thank goodness

    Pregnancy hormones
    , and in particular estrogen, seem to play a role in controlling and moderating our sense of taste. And when you're pregnant, estrogen levels — and hence your sense of taste — may fluctuate widely. Plus, your sense of taste and your sense of smell are intimately connected, so pregnancy-related changes in your sense of smell may also lead to that metallic taste during pregnancy.

    Try banishing that metallic taste with acids. Focus on sour flavors such as citrus juices, lemonade, and — assuming your tummy can handle them — foods marinated in vinegar .
