Emetophobia is the fear of vomiting or seeing vomiting in public.[1] The phobia is also related to fears of nausea.[1] This condition is more common in females. The fear of vomiting receives little attention compared to other specific phobias.[2]

The problem is often triggered by upsetting or embarrassing incidents in teenage years (12-19).
