A man claims that he is pregnant after having sex with another man.
Doctors said that the man was convinced he was impregnated by another man after having had homosexual relationships.
The 52-year-old man of India, was hospitalized in a psychiatric ward after he kept insisting that he was pregnant and he feels a baby moving inside him.
The unidentified man is a father of two children. He has a bachelor’s degree. He told doctors that he was suffering stomach pains and believes that he feels the baby moving inside.
Dr. Suresh Kumar, who is the head of a team of doctors at the KMCT Educational Institution, said that this is the first he has seen such a case.
The doctor said that he has seen cases of Couvade syndrome (also known as sympathetic pregnancy) in which a partner experiences some of the same symptoms and behavior of the expectant mother.
These often include weight gain, altered hormone levels, nausea and disturbed sleep patterns. The patient is under a doctor’s supervision.
