Between 3 and 7: Usually by age 5 they stop with their imaginary friends. Some may go a little longer. Imaginary friends can be very helpful to children...They help them cope and provide hours of entertainment. They can help them express thoughts and feelings that they may not be comfortable expressing directly.

Remove the plumbing: If you are secure in your belief, then remove the uterus. You may have some difficulty finding an obgyn willing to do this in a 21 yo but that would be the simple answer.
