Phamtom pregnancy

Postby TheHiveMind » Thu May 20, 2021 8:51 pm

If this is in the wrong place please move. I'm unsure where to put it.

I'd say I suffer from, but it's become part of my life now. I go though phamtom pregnancies regularly, also known aspseudocyesis.

It started as a deep fear when I was a teen. Everything about pregancy and child rearing freaked me out. Then after a sevear trigger mixed with flash backs i went though my first phamtom pregancy. There was no sex involved, it wasnt real, i know it's not real. But the cravings where there, brooding, bloating, breasts swelling and leaking. I managed to snap myself out of it. I cant remember how.

After years free, it started again last summer. After I was with my partner and on the pill which I very quickly stopped taking. I was parinoyed about getting pregnant, even when I'd taken many tests and clearly wasnt. But my partner has always wanted chridren. I think everything combined and my stress brought on the phantom pregancy.

Scince last summer I've gone though multiple "pregancies" sometimes last weeks up to months. It's become a comfort rather than a fear. Between me and the partner is also a fetish. I go though the swelling cravings, pains, hormones, sometimes the labour pains. Always ending in depression because I can feel something inside me yet I know it's not there. But I find so much comfort in this I cant help but get attached. I buy plushies to fill the gaps.

I dont want to find medical help because it's such a comfort. I dont want to loose that.

Does any one have any stories or experances with phantom pregancy

Hi Syra ,

I know you don't want to lose the comfort of experiencing these phantom pregnancies but have you considered the effect it may be having on your overall health ? I'm not a doctor but it seems to me that the symptoms must be causing stress to your body ... ?

I can't really speak to the fetish aspect and , unfortunately , since our Fetish and Paraphilias forums have bee closed , we do not allow discussions of that nature on other forums .

It probably wouldn't hurt to talk to a heath care provider about this , just to make sure that you don't have any physical reasons for it happening .

All the best ,

I have been trying to taking supplements to keep up various things. My general health is normally poor, I'm not very good at self care and forget to eat. But I'm trying to improve that.

I avoid doctors. To much trauma around them. However this is a mental thing because once I go though the fake labour. It's like nothing went wrong in the first place. Our partner has medical training and does monitor any changes.
