Can sexual activity(not sex) cause a change in hormones and

Patient: Can sexual activity(not sex) cause a change in hormones and make you have symptoms of pregnancy even though your aren’t preganant?

 

 

Doctor: Hi.Thanks for your query.Yes, it can cause changes in hormones, in spite of actual sexual activity.You can get changes of pregnancy and is called asPseudocyesis: Means there is no actual pregnancy but the patient gets all the signs and symptoms. This is confirmed by a negative ultrasonography. He patient who has the extreme desire of having Motherhood again develops this sort of a problem. No one really knows the reason and the exact mechanism by which this happens. Consult your Senior Gynecologist who has seen such more cases for counselling and further management.Hope this helps.
