After recovering from chronic pain + chronic constipation due to the precious support of people from this forum, I am back suspecting another manifestation of TMS: Despite using dual protection (combining two methods) while having sex, I started to be scared of pregnancy since a couple of months. Due to a case of food poisoning, I threw up two weeks back and my brain took it as a sign of pregnancy and freaked out, despite listing at least 2-3 weird food items that I had accidentally consumed. I was waiting for my periods to come and disprove my fear (and it is a really big big fear for me, as I am not married, nor in a culture where that sort of a thing is dealt with any compassion. I have a long term partner who is very supportive but my family is unaware of my relationship). I started getting pre-menstruation sensations, but I'm 8-9 days late from my usual date, and my stress, fear, embarrassment keeps rising. My anxiety is hitting the roof. Internet worsens it. I don't have any other symptom of pregnancy, and I'm 30. Also, I got two doses of covishield vaccine right after my last period. Could this be TMS/unconscious fear? Is stress possibly delaying my periods? I have an appointment with a gynac two days later, but I want to understand my psychology before I face her. Please help.
