Purpose of ReviewThe purpose of this study is to review and summarize the literature exploring the genetic basis for premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD) and postpartum depression (PPD).Recent FindingsThere is more evidence for a genetic basis for PPD than for PMDD, but only when PPD is defined as beginning in the immediate postpartum time period.SummaryFamilial, genome-wide linkage and association studies, and candidate gene studies, most in the past 10 years, have examined the genetic… Expand
Genetic basis for postpartum depression
TLDR
The findings underscore the need for additional studies with larger samples, as well as the crucial importance of timing in the definition of PPD for genetic studies, and the heritability of the genetic basis for PPD is strong with approximately a 40% heritability. Expand
Comorbid Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder in Women with Bipolar Disorder: Management Challenges
TLDR
The management of comorbid PMDD/BD needs as a first step to stabilize the bipolar symptoms by means of optimal dosages of mood stabilizers, and in euthymic BD patients, the PMDD symptoms could be treated with estroprogestins. Expand
Neuroactive Steroids and Perinatal Depression: a Review of Recent Literature
TLDR
Because some studies point to a lag between neuroactive steroid dysregulation and subsequent symptoms, future research should consider interactions with other aspects of neuroactive steroids physiology, such as synthetic enzymes or receptor plasticity. Expand
A systematic review investigating if genetic or epigenetic markers are associated with postnatal depression.
TLDR
The importance of examining the interaction between epigenetic, genetic, hormonal and environmental factors in order to fully understand the risk factors for PND and to improve the accuracy of current antenatal and early postnatal screening procedures is highlighted. Expand
Vitamin D and Depression in Women: A Mini-review
TLDR
This paper will review recent research on the relation of Vitamin D levels and the epidemiology of depression in women, and provide an overview of the results of a variety of different studies taking into account research which both suggests and refutes an association. Expand
The effectiveness of iron supplementation for postpartum depression
TLDR
This systematic review and meta-analysis will provide clinical evidence for the effectiveness of iron supplementation for PPD, inform the understanding of the value of iron supplements in improving PPD symptoms, and help clinicians to make better decisions regarding the appropriate role ofIron supplementation as a part of prevention and treatment routines. Expand
Genetics of perinatal obsessive–compulsive disorder
TLDR
This chapter will provide an overview of the scientific literature supporting a genetic basis for OCD and examine possible overlaps between the genetic literature on PPD and that on OCD to inform future research inquiries into the genetic underpinnings of perinatal OCD. Expand
Maternal Mental Health and Peripartum Depression
TLDR
Maternal mental health (MMH) and peripartum depression (PPD) are considered as a major public health concern and evidence-based heightened/lowered risk/protection factors and current state-of-the-art care are described. Expand
Trait-related changes in brain network topology in premenstrual dysphoric disorder
TLDR
Altered network topology was found in PMDD across symptomatic and remitted stages in major graph metrics, indicating decreased functional network segregation and increased functional network integration, and the relationship between difficulties in emotion regulation and PMDD was mediated by specific patterns of functional connectivity.

Risk for Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder Is Associated with Genetic Variation in ESR1, the Estrogen Receptor Alpha Gene
TLDR
These are the first positive (albeit preliminary) genetic findings in this reproductive endocrine-related mood disorder and involve the receptor for a hormone that is pathogenically relevant. Expand
Association study of the estrogen receptor gene ESR1 with postpartum depression—a pilot study
TLDR
A role for ESR1 is supported in the etiology of PPD, possibly through the modulation of serotonin signaling, which could have broad implications for other disorders and therapies that involve estrogens. Expand
Gene-environment interaction in postpartum depression: a Chinese clinical study.
TLDR
Results show that 5-HTTLPR is strongly associated with the major depressive disorder in postpartum women. Expand
A reproductive subtype of depression: conceptualizing models and moving toward etiology.
TLDR
Evidence supporting reproductive depression as a distinct clinical entity with specific treatment approaches and a unique biology that is separate from nonreproductive depression is provided. Expand
Postpartum depressive symptoms and the BDNF Val66Met functional polymorphism: effect of season of delivery
TLDR
A role of the BDNF gene in the development of PPD symptoms, potentially mediated by season of delivery, is proposed. Expand
The development of peripartum depressive symptoms is associated with gene polymorphisms of MAOA, 5-HTT and COMT
TLDR
MAOA in combination with COMT appears to regulate not only the stress response in laboratory experiments, but also seems to influence the stress-evoked onset of mood during normal, mild, stressful events, such as experienced in the peripartum period. Expand
Postpartum depression symptoms: a case–control study on monoaminergic functional polymorphisms and environmental stressors
TLDR
The interaction effect between monoaminergic genes and environmental stressors is likely to contribute to vulnerability for PPD. Expand
The effect of serotonin 1A receptor polymorphism on the cognitive function of premenstrual dysphoric disorder
TLDR
The G/G genotype of HTR1A (rs6295) was found to be associated with impaired WM in the pre menstrual phase and premenstrual decline of cognitive function, which provides insight into the serotonin mechanism of Cognitive function among women with PMDD. Expand
Investigation of transcription factor AP-2beta genotype in women with premenstrual dysphoric disorder
TLDR
The results suggest that AP-2beta genotype is not a risk factor for premenstrual dysphoric disorder and that brainstem levels of AP- 2beta correlate positively to serotonin metabolism in rat frontal cortex. Expand
