Pseudocyesis also referred to as pseudopregnancy or false pregnancy is a condition in which a non-pregnant woman believes that she is pregnant, even though there is no physical evidence of pregnancy, she often experience real pregnancy symptoms. Women who are most at risk to experience false symptoms are:
-*- Women who have suffered a miscarriage or who have lost a child
-*- Women in their late thirties or early forties, who have been trying to conceive for many years and who may have fertility problems.
Experts believe that emotional conflict is the principal cause. It is thought that an intense desire to become pregnant, or an intense fear of becoming pregnant, can create internal conflicts and changes in the endocrine system, which may explain some of the symptoms of pseudocyesis, and which are similar to the symptoms of true pregnancy and are often hard to distinguish from it but you should pay attention to them.
