Bipolar disorder affects men and women in equal numbers, and the symptoms are essentially identical. But some key differences do exist—differences that might be due to biological factors, and social ones, too. For starters, research has consistently shown that women have higher rates of bipolar II disorder, “which typically presents as a chronic depressive disorder with periods of hypomania,” according to Candida Fink, MD, a board-certified child, adolescent and adult psychiatrist with a private practice in Westchester, N.Y. There’s a misconception that bipolar II disorder is less severe than bipola...

Pregnancy and childbirth are life changing events. Approximately 12% of all women will suffer from depressive symptoms in the perinatal period (O'Hara and McCabe, 2013). The severity of these symptoms varies from tiredness, sleep problems, feelings of inadequacy in the new parental role, loss of appetite and loss of interests in social activity to severely depressed mood, depressive delusions, self-destructive behaviour, neglecting or harming the child and suicide (Esscher et al., 2016; Miller, 2002).

In January, when attention focused on the need for postpartum depression screening because of a recommendation by the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force, an independent panel of physicians and epidemiologists that develops recommendations for clinical preventive services, I was both relieved and concerned. As a women’s health advocate and educator I worried that screening could contribute to further pathologizing women’s experiences, especially when they are connected to their reproductive lives. I also feared that Big Pharma wanted to cash in, and that fetal effects from antidepressant medication might be und...

Discussion Postpartum depression affects 10 to 20% of women after delivery, but less than half of these women are detected. Postpartum depression is defined as major depressive episodes with symptom onset during pregnancy or in the first four weeks following delivery. There is recognition that symptoms may begin later after delivery but the mother would not be diagnosed with PPD. PPD is distinct from postpartum blues which occur in 50 to 80% of new mothers. They occur within 1 to 2 days of delivery and resolve within 10-14 days of delivery. Symptoms include anxiety, depression, irritability, tearfulness, poor sleep, and a...

Note: The content of this post may be sensitive for readers. Before I start writing about my experience with postpartum depression, I want you to know that this is extremely hard for me to write about. Therefore, I suspect it will be hard for you to read. But I want to be honest and transparent because (most of the time) people are hush-hush when it comes to any kind of depression, and it's important to know that you are not the only one suffering through this brutal time in your life. I've always been hormonally imbalanced (as I like to call it). I had terrible PMS throughout my teenage years and I always said that when ...
