  • "Pure" OCD

So I recently think I have developed a new OCD. It’s called Tokophobia, which is the fear of getting pregnant. Right now I’m having symptoms of what I thought to believe is a UTI (TMI I’m sorry) but my mind is telling me their symptoms of pregnancy and it causes great fear and anxiety for me to the point where I do not know how to function. The people in my life think I’m being ridiculous because I am trying to be safe but I’m always afraid of that 10%. Are there any other ladies that have the same OCD or understand maybe where I’m coming from?

I can relate. If I have had sex within the last few weeks or months and my period is late I start freaking out even if I was 100% safe.

I’ve had to stay home from work because my anxiety about it was so intense and I could not stop thinking about it and constantly body checking to see if I “looked” pregnant

Thanks that helps a lot, I’m suffering through the same thing. It had happened to me recently where I had to stay home cause I got too anxious too.
