Reproductive depression is the depression in women that is related to the hormonal changes of the menstrual cycle, pregnancy and the menopause and is manifested clinically as premenstrual depression, postnatal depression and climacteric depression. These three components occur in the same vulnerable women in that a woman with depression in the menopausal transition will usually have a history of premenstrual syndrome (PMS; premenstrual dysphoric disorder [PMDD]), would have been in a good mood… Expand
Personal view: hormones and depression in women
  • J. Studd
  • Medicine
  • Climacteric : the journal of the International Menopause Society
  • 2015
TLDR
The hormonal causation of certain common types of depression in women and the successful treatment by estrogens should be understood by psychiatrists and gynecologists. Expand
Inflammatory markers in women with postpartum depressive symptoms
TLDR
The results indicate that women with PPD have elevated levels of some inflammatory biomarkers, and it is plausible that PPD is associated with a compromised adaptability of the immune system. Expand

The understanding of the cause and treatment of premenstrual disorders is confused but it is essentially the result of cyclical ovarian activity, usually ovulation, and an effective treatment shouldExpand
Serotonin and Female Psychopathology
TLDR
In reviewing this female-specific topic, it is hoped to raise awareness to sex/gender differences in psychopathology, help identify at-risk populations and consider development of new treatment options. Expand
Affective temperaments in pregnancy
TLDR
The third trimester of pregnancy is associated with significantly lower affective temperament, and younger age and lower levels of education were predictors of higher cyclothymic, anxious and depressive temperament scores. Expand
Severe premenstrual syndrome and bipolar disorder: a tragic confusion
  • J. Studd
  • Medicine
  • Menopause international
  • 2012
TLDR
The diagnosis of PMS should come from the history relating the occurrence of cyclical mood and behaviour changes with menstruation, the improvement during pregnancy, postnatal depression and the presence of runs of many good days a month and the somatic symptoms of mastalgia, bloating and headaches.

Hormone therapy for reproductive depression in women
  • J. Studd
  • Medicine
  • Post reproductive health
  • 2014
TLDR
It is concluded that premenstrual and postnatal depressions appear in the same vulnerable women who are typically well during pregnancy and are a sub group of reproductive depression which also develops climacteric depression in the transition phase. Expand
Menarche, puberty and psychiatric disorders
TLDR
Bipolar affective disorder had a stronger relationship with menarche, psychiatric problems during adolescence were related with early onset of illness in schizophrenia and bipolar groups and an integrative clinical approach is suggested while examining the psychiatric illness. Expand
Psychopathology and parenting: An examination of perceived and observed parenting in mothers with depression and PTSD.
TLDR
In the context of child abuse history and/or current PTSD, clinically significant maternal depression was the most salient factor during infancy that was associated with parenting impairment at this level of analysis. Expand

  • 2017
TLDR
This study demonstrated significantly higher serum GPER1 levels in the MDD patients than in the controls, a positive correlation was found between GPER 1 levels and depression scores and serum GP ER1 level was valuable in predicting the presence of depression. Expand

Depression and the menopause: why antidepressants are not enough?
TLDR
The combination of the antidepressant with HT seems to offer the best therapeutic potential in terms of efficacy, rapidity of improvement and consistency of remission in the follow-up, as well as the synergistic effect between HT and antidepressants in treating menopausal depression. Expand
Effects of gonadal steroids in women with a history of postpartum depression.
TLDR
The data provide direct evidence in support of the involvement of the reproductive hormones estrogen and progesterone in the development of postpartum depression in a subgroup of women and suggest that women with a history of post partum depression are differentially sensitive to mood-destabilizing effects of gonadal steroids. Expand
Tailoring Treatment of Depression for Women Across the Reproductive Lifecycle: The Importance of Pregnancy, Vasomotor Symptoms, and Other Estrogen-Related Events in Psychopharmacology
TLDR
To attain optimal outcomes, modern psychopharmacologists must tailor treatment of depression to a woman's reproductive stage of life. Expand
A review of hormonal changes during the menopausal transition: focus on findings from the Melbourne Women's Midlife Health Project.
TLDR
In the post-menopause, FSH levels are markedly raised, E2 levels are low, whereas inhibin B and AMH are undetectable, a time of marked hormonal instability. Expand
Ovarian cycle syndrome
  • J. Studd
  • Medicine
  • Gynecological endocrinology : the official journal of the International Society of Gynecological Endocrinology
  • 2009
TLDR
It is logical that the diagnosis of ovarian cycle syndrome should be used to include all of the cyclical physical, behavioural and emotional changes of mood that occur monthly following ovulation and that this name should replace PMS or PMDD. Expand
Oestrogens and progestins for preventing and treating postpartum depression.
TLDR
Oestrogen therapy was associated with a greater improvement in depression scores than placebo among women with severe depression, and synthetic progestogens should be used with significant caution in the postpartum period. Expand
Hormones and depression in women

  • Medicine
  • Climacteric : the journal of the International Menopause Society
  • 2004
TLDR
This critical review guides the reader through the plethora of data, from the earliest reports of menstrual madness in the nineteenth century to neurobiological work in the new millennium, that illustrates that although the effect of estrogen on the central nervous system, particularly on mood and depression, remains a controversial area, there is now considerable evidence for the psychotherapeutic benefits of estrogens in the triad of hormone-responsive depressive disorders. Expand
Transdermal oestrogen for treatment of severe postnatal depression
TLDR
Transdermal oestrogen given transdermally is an effective treatment for postnatal depression and further studies are required to establish the minimum effective dose and shortest necessary duration of treatment as well as the mechanism of antidepressant action of oestrogens. Expand
Why are estrogens rarely used for the treatment of depression in women?

  • Gynecological endocrinology : the official journal of the International Society of Gynecological Endocrinology
  • 2007
The short answer to this question could be that they do not work, but that is not true. It is much more likely that a turf war is developing between psychiatrists and gynaecologists/endocrinologistsExpand
Efficacy of estradiol for the treatment of depressive disorders in perimenopausal women: a double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled trial.
TLDR
Transdermal estradiol replacement is an effective treatment of depression for perimenopausal women and sustained antidepressant benefit of treatment after the 4-week washout period, although somatic complaints increased in frequency and intensity. Expand
