The ministry said in a statement that after the presentation of the tests, the latter is not pregnant, and does not contain her stomach on any fetus at any stage of growth.
The ministry revealed that the person concerned had been shown to a specialized medical staff, consisting of a obstetrician and obstetrician, an internal surgeon, an X-ray specialist and a psychiatrist. After examining the medical staff of this woman, and carrying out in-depth and accurate examinations of her condition, he was once again shown to be unmarried and required to keep up with the psychological level.
For his part, explained Jawad al-Mabruki, a psychologist, told the site "Today 24" (independent), this situation, what he called "psychological pregnancy."
He said that the false pregnancy that can be experienced by women vary from women, from women who know only some symptoms of pregnancy, between mild symptoms, not exceeding nausea, to situations in which the role of the role of pregnant may go to the extreme, "delirium."
He explained that this woman, who claims to be pregnant in her ninth year, suffers from a disease called "nervous pregnancy", a disease that affects a number of women either in their early twenties or near the age of "despair", which reflects by Saying fear of the passage of time without being able to have children.

"This kind of false pregnancy exists in all countries of the world, a pregnancy that can be effectively bypassed by psychosocial sessions, and drugs that vary in strength with the size of the lie of pregnancy."
