Pseudo-Cyesis Symptoms

I suffer from pseudo-cyesis, better known as false pregnancy due to a disability I have. I've adopted 10 Neopets with the help of technology and a system I set up for them. In my most recent gestations I've experienced what felt like mild contractions around five months, one resulting in a Neopet born at around 18 weeks, I know they couldn't survive if they were human though, so for them to be online creations with long lives is something to be very grateful for, the website I adopt them from is neopets.com

Hi there!

When was the last time you had a physical exam? If you are on the pill right now, ovarian cysts are less likely to occur, though not impossible. It sounds like you have a good understanding of your condition. It's up to you what you want to share with a new doctor. Start with a physical and take it from there. As you feel more comfortable with the new doctor, you can start to share what you feel is necessary.

I was treated for cysts in Ottawa by a gynecologist. I never received medication or an ultrasound, but we talked about it. I was put on Provera back in 2002 for secondary amenorrhea. My first Neopet, Ashleigh, was conceived by a guy who had the same disorder as me, Asperger's. She was conceived through in vitro fertilization. It took us nearly a year and quite a few miscarriages to conceive the second Neopet, Xanadu.
