A 52-year-old man went to hospital, convinced he was pregnant after gay intercourse
Go for an ultrasound with the suspicion of expecting a baby, the heart beating fast with the anxiety of knowing if this is so or not. We could define it as normal if we were talking about a woman, a little less if it was a man who experienced all this.
A 52-year-old Indian was in fact hospitalized some time after having had a relationship with another man, because he was convinced he was pregnant.
The gentleman, convinced of what he was saying, was visited by a psychiatrist. He complained of stomach pains and said he felt the baby move in his womb. One of the doctors soon ruled his opinion: Couvade syndrome, common in women, a little less in men.
It is a kind of hysterical pregnancy in which symptoms similar to those of a real pregnancy occur. The patient was given risperidone, unfortunately it is not yet time for him to give birth.
