False pregnancy .. a false alarm despite all the correct and promising symptoms of a fetus

 There is no definitive reason why this should happen, but there are 3 popular theories about what causes it / Istock

 Chest pain, nausea and fatigue are all the first symptoms of pregnancy , which is a natural conclusion that any woman hoping for pregnancy may come to, but the truth is a little different, as false pregnancy is a false alarm despite all its correct symptoms.

 False pregnancy is also known as a phantom pregnancy , and it is an uncommon condition that makes a woman think she is pregnant. 

 While some think that a miscarriage is followed, this is a wrong assumption. If there is no vaccination, there is no child and has not been aborted after all these misleading symptoms.

 But what are the causes of false pregnancy?

 There is no definitive reason why this happens, but there are 3 popular theories about what causes it:

  • Some mental health professionals believe it is linked to cravings or a fear of pregnancy. This could potentially affect the endocrine system, which in turn causes symptoms of pregnancy.
  • The other theory relates to desire fulfillment. Some mental health professionals believe that when a woman is yearning for pregnancy, has had several miscarriages or infertility, or because she wants to marry, she may misinterpret some of the changes in her body as a clear sign that she is pregnant.
  • The third theory relates to certain chemical changes in the nervous system associated with depressive disorders. It is possible that these chemical changes are responsible for the symptoms of a false pregnancy.


Some researchers have suggested that poverty, lack of education, child sexual abuse, or relationship problems may play a role in triggering a false pregnancy, according to Webmed medical website .

 

Symptoms of false pregnancy

 Similar to normal pregnancy with all its symptoms, but without a developing fetus, and perhaps the most common physical symptom is a delay in the menstrual cycle and an enlarged abdomen, as if there is a child growing in the mother's gut.

 

However, the actual growth of the size of the abdomen for a phantom pregnancy is due to the following accumulation of causes:

  • Gases

  • Fats

  • stool

  • Paul


Irregular menstruation is the second most common symptom, as about 70% of women reported feeling fetal movement and kicking!

 

Other, less common symptoms include:

  • Morning sickness and vomiting

  • Tenderness of the breast

  • Changes in the breasts, including size and pigmentation

  • The appearance of some milk in the breast

  • overweight

  • labor pains

  • An inverted belly button

  • Increased appetite

  • Enlarged uterus

  • Soften the cervix

A woman's brain mistakenly interprets these signals as pregnancy, and triggers the release of hormones (such as estrogen and prolactin) that trigger the actual pregnancy symptoms.

 

 These symptoms may last between a few weeks to a full 9 months, according to the American Pregnancy Association , and a woman may feel labor pains and head to childbirth, only to discover that she was not pregnant in the first place.

 

 There is no physical cause for this pregnancy, and therefore there are no general medical recommendations for treating it / Istock

 

 Is there a cure for false pregnancy?

 

There is no physical reason for the occurrence of this pregnancy, and therefore there are no general medical recommendations for its treatment, it is sufficient for the woman to make sure of the occurrence of pregnancy, by undergoing an ultrasound or taking a test to listen to the fetal heartbeat.

 

 Because false pregnancies generally occur in women who suffer from psychological instability, for this reason, they should be under the care of a therapist.

 

 When a woman thinks she is pregnant, especially for a period of several months, it can be disappointing to discover that the whole thing is an illusion.

 

 Therefore, the doctor must deliver the news in a thoughtful manner and provide psychological support, including treatment, to help the patient recover from her disappointment.

 

How common is false pregnancy?

According to the Indian Journal of Psychiatry, this pregnancy has become very rare, although it occurs since ancient times, as it was described by Hippocrates in the year 300 BC, but nowadays it is not commonly found among the general population.

The African continent is the most geographical place where this pregnancy still occurs, with the rate of one woman out of every 160 suffering a delay in childbearing or infertility.
