Man thinks he’s pregnant after having gay sex

Man thinks he’s pregnant after having gay sex

A 52-year-old father of two became convinced that he was pregnant after a night of gay sex.

The man told doctors that he was having stomach pains and believed that he could feel the baby moving inside his tummy.

He then told the doctors that he believed he had been knocked up after a bout of gay sex.

Dr PN Suresh Kumar was the head of a team of doctors at KMCT Educational Institution and says this is the first case of its kind he has seen.

"He was an active homosexual in his adolescent years which may contributed to his beliefs. But, his homosexuality did not affect his marriage

"Usually, we see couvade syndrome [otherwise known as sympathetic pregnancy] in some dads-to-be who show certain symptoms of pregnancy (like nausea, weight gain or sleep problems) when their partners get pregnant."

Dr Kumar said that all tests came back normal and that the man, from Kozhikode in India, had no gender identity disorders.

The man was eventually hospitalised by a psychiatrist following his insistence that he was pregnant.

"The patient went for counselling and took risperidone," said the doctor. "This delusion was cured due to the medical intervention. After a series of counselling sessions, he stopped indulging in homosexual activities.

"Now, the patient is recovering and we are measuring his progress during periodic check-ups."
