TOKAPHOBIA -yes Its a Real Thing!! Xx

Hiya all,

 

ok so one holiday when I was 9 years old I was sat with my nan in a bar, out of the blue I started telling her of how I feared that my elder sis (who was only 12 at the time) would not be able to have children and that she would ask me to be a surragate and how I felt awful at the fact that I could not do it for her

obviously my nan found it strange hearing this from her nine year old grand daughter so she started asking more questions - I told her how I felt sick at the sight of a pregnant woman and that the thought of a baby inside me made me cry.

 

Back home she explored the internet and found out that there is such a phobia as this - TOKAPHOBIA!! not sure what the cure is prob hypnosis or something??

 

just wondering if anyone else shares the same problem??

 

;-D xx

I think I have this as well, but Idont hate kids i just dont like the pain that comes with it.

Since I posted last I've been to the doctor who referred me to clinical psychology. I've been seeing a woman once a week and hopefully, fingers crossed, I might be able to one day manage the phobia a bit better. It's taking over my life at the moment.

ur not alone at all! i am tocophobia as well, tocophobia enough that i am in a gay relationship right now! i hate babies! they ruin ur life!

RighteousGirl, that is all I want. I want it so badly, but my long term partner still harbours the hope that I will someday become broody and overcome this fear. I'm almost 26 and the thought of pregnancy, childbirth and children still fills me with a horror and revulsion I honestly cannot describe.

I had similar fears and discomforts with the idea.... <br />

I got pregnant at 18, had an abortion<br />

Then finally found a doctor to do a tubal ligation at age 27...<br />
