Een in 450 women have NO idea they’re having a baby until half-way through their pregnancy
Een in 450 swanger vroue in die Verenigde Koninkryk weet nie dat hulle tot 'n week 'n baba gaan hê nie 20 van hul swangerskap (halfpad deur), en een in 2,500 vroue is onbewus daarvan totdat hulle kraam.
Dit is 'n verskynsel wat bekend staan as kriptiese swangerskap – word ook 'swangerskap ontkenning' genoem.
Kriptiese swangerskappe raak gewoonlik beide jong vroue, wat nog nooit 'n swangerskap beleef het nie, of vroue wat glo dat hulle deur die menopouse gegaan het en wat kies om nie voorbehoeding te gebruik nie.
Vroue met onreëlmatige menstruele siklusse is ook meer geneig om tekens te mis wat hulle verwag. Dit geld veral vir vroue met polisistiese ovariumsindroom (PCOS), waar klein siste op die eierstokke groei; die hormonale wanbalans lei dikwels tot onreëlmatige of nie-bestaande menstruasie.
Tog is daar 'n paar vroue wat gedurende hul swangerskap maandeliks bloeding sal ondergaan. In hierdie geval, 'n skandering by die plaaslike huisarts is moontlik die enigste metode om dit te bevestig.
Vroue kan eenvoudig nie verwag dat hulle swanger is as hulle die pil neem nie – maar dan kan diegene wat dit godsdienstig neem, steeds swanger word.
Agt in 100 vroue kan swanger raak terwyl hulle op die pil is – gewoonlik nie as gevolg van probleme met die pil nie, maar met die ontvanger, óf omdat hulle die pil gemis het, opgegooi of diarree gehad het.
