An Owerri-based Nigerian doctor has raised alarm over the increasing rate of Cryptic pregnancy scam in the South East.
According to a doctor identified as Abah Ehi Peters who brought this to light via his Twitter page, these women seeking children are injected with a high level of oestrogen and sometimes progesterone hormones that cause the abdomen to bloat/enlarge, causes formation of cysts and appearance of being pregnant.
He shared a conversation with a patient who believed she was pregnant but was worried because she was still seeing her period 3 months into the supposed pregnancy.
On further inquiry about how she found out she was pregnant, she opened up about the Cryptic Pregnancy.
