Depression in Women

Women experience depression about twice as often as men. Many hormonal factors may contribute to the increased rate of depression in women, particularly factors such as menstrual cycle changes, pregnancy, miscarriage, postpartum period, pre-menopause, and menopause. Many women also face additional stressors such as having increased responsibilities at work and home, single parenthood, and caring for children and/or aging parents.

Many women are also particularly vulnerable after the birth of a baby. The hormonal and physical changes, as well as the added responsibility of a new life, can lead to postpartum depression in some women. While transient "blues" are common in new mothers, a full-blown depressive episode is not a normal occurrence and requires active intervention. Receiving treatment from a sympathetic physician and/or therapist, along with having emotional support from the family are paramount for aiding in the recovery of the new mother.
