What causes the Couvade syndrome?
Asked 2 years ago
Hi, I'm pregnant (first trimester), and I think my man has sympathetic pregnancy. He's been quite bloated (we haven't consumed anything different in our diet). He has also been rather irritable and experiencing nausea. I think I'm better of than him at this moment. Can anyone tell me what causes Couvade syndrome and when it will go away?

Couvade is common in expecting dads to be, especially if they are very empathetic towards their partner's experience. Couvade tends to mimic the symptoms of pregnancy that their partner is having. Couvade or Sympapathetic pregnancy could be caused by stress, the anxiety of becoming a new father, and hormonal changes.

Symptoms like constipation, bloating, irritability, weight gain, and nausea are non-lethal in expecting dads, just like in every other human being. Couvade syndrome is a state in which the expecting dad mimics the symptoms of pregnancy. This medical condition could be due to the result of psychological or emotional changes in the dad. Fortunately, Couvade syndrome is temporary, and, most of the time, it is self-treatable.
