Postpartum Depression and Its Relationship to Hormones


Depression begins for all different reasons and so many of those cases are related to a hormone imbalance in the body. This is most evident with postpartum depression.

Our bodies produce hormones in every cell in the body, in minute amounts, but vital to the overall health of a person. There are many other disorders caused by a discrepancy in the hormone levels, such as bi-polar depression, manic depression, psychotic depression, an imbalance in the thyroid gland, menopause and many others too numerous to mention.

If you have the following symptoms, going along with signs of depression, you should visit your doctor to be tested. If you are experiencing signs of depression within a year after the delivery of your child you could be suffering from postpartum depression and there may be a need for hormone therapy.

You might be experiencing insomnia, or the reverse, sleeping all the time, mood swings, dehydration, dryness or maybe a lack of interest in sex. If so, we highly recommend seeing a specialist in hormone therapy, having some simple tests done as soon as possible and to determine the reason for your symptoms.

If it turns out to be a hormone imbalance in your body, then there are hormone therapies which will help you in alleviating these problems you are having. Taking these hormone replacements, you will feel so much better in a very short period of time and you will be asking yourself why you took so long to do something about it. Sometimes though, you are so bad off, that you really don't know that you need help. A good friend is the answer, someone who notices the change in you and has your best interests at heart.

Having friends or family who are concerned, is a big part of the process for healing. If you have had a death of someone close to you, it is imperative that you seek help and there are organizations that are available to talk you about your concerns. Talking about your feelings is the biggest part in the process towards getting well. Often new moms feel guilty about their postpartum depression. Once it is realized that this because of the hormone imbalance it is easier to accept.

There are definitely physical problems, which create the symptoms you might be experiencing but just know there are ways to address the problems too. There are synthetic hormone replacements, or a natural source, it just depends on your particular philosophy and your own choice as to which one to pick. We recommend natural or bio-identical hormone therapy and to do so only under the supervision of an expert in the fieldójust because someone is an MD does not mean they know about hormone therapy. And there could be some side-effects to whichever one if they are not done under proper supervision. The synthetic ones could cause some heart problems down the road, or cancer, especially for the women who are taking hormone replacement for their menopause. If you choose the more natural approach, you might develop an allergic reaction, so you might have to experiment for awhile to see which one is better for you. Don't give up though, as you will get well with the right medication.

Always consult with your health care provider, as they will do the blood tests to determine the source of your problems, so you won't experience all these problems you have been having. This cannot be emphasized nearly enough.
