I always have a bitter taste in my mouth when i am hungry or when i woke up from sleep. What is my problem?

GERD

Gastroesophageal_reflux_disease
You have gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) aka heartburn. Take Zantac/Pepcid or Prilosec for a couple weeks. Both are OTC. If that helps, that's the answer. Then see your doctor for follow up. If its chronic, you'll need to follow up with a gastroenterologist initially and then every few years.

Once you get happy and pregnant you will forget about peripheral issues. Keep trying and most succeed. But suggest to make sure that things like infection are ruled out, so see your doctor
