Postpartum hormonal contraception use and incidence of postpartum depression: a systematic review
  • A. Ti, K. Curtis
  • Medicine
    The European journal of contraception & reproductive health care : the official journal of the European Society of Contraception
  • 2019
TLDR
Limited evidence found no consistent associations between hormonal contraceptive use and incidence of postpartum depression.
Hormonal contraceptive use and depressive symptoms: systematic review and network meta-analysis of randomised trials
TLDR
This study suggests that hormonal contraceptive use does not lead to an increase in depressive symptoms in adult women and future studies should include first-time users, to confirm the results in young women.
Efficacy of progestin-only treatment for the management of menopausal symptoms: a systematic review.
TLDR
A beneficial effect was reported in some trials with the transdermal route at longer duration and with oral treatment at higher doses for VMS for progesterone- only therapy, and this report may help to inform future studies of progestin-only therapy for the treatment of menopausal symptoms.
Side Effects and Health Benefits of Depot Medroxyprogesterone Acetate: A Systematic Review.
TLDR
Higher-quality research is needed to clarify DMPA's side effects and benefits, and patient-centered counseling should incorporate the available evidence while acknowledging its limitations and recognizing the value of women's lived experiences.
Hormonal contraception not a cause of depression?
TLDR
A systematic review found hardly any association between combined hormonal contraceptives and depression, and there might be a (minimal) association for hormonal contraceptives that contain only progestogens.

  • Medicine
    Journal of the Medical Association of Thailand
  • 2020
TLDR
There was borderline significance that women using Implanon had higher incidence of headache, gastrointestinal symptoms, and depression, compared with DMPA, while both groups of women observed comparable adverse events except bleeding events.
The effect of the copper intrauterine device (Cu-IUD) and the injectable depo-medroxyprogesterone acetate (DMPA) use on women’s sexual satisfaction and depression

Association of Hormonal Contraception With Depression.
TLDR
Use of hormonal contraception, especially among adolescents, was associated with subsequent use of antidepressants and a first diagnosis of depression, suggesting depression as a potential adverse effect of hormonal contraceptive use.
Hormonal contraception and mental health: results of a population-based study.
TLDR
The influence of hormonal birth control on mental health is modest and mainly favourable, and the length of current OC use seems to have some beneficial effects on mood although the longer the duration of use, the greater the association with a diagnosis of alcohol dependence.
The effect of depot medroxyprogesterone acetate on postnatal depression: a randomised controlled trial
TLDR
The possibility that immediate postnatal DMPA use is associated with depression cannot be excluded and this findings justify further research with longer follow-up.
Mood changes in adolescents using depot-medroxyprogesterone acetate for contraception: a prospective study.
A prospective study of adolescents who choose among levonorgestrel implant (Norplant), medroxyprogesterone acetate (Depo-Provera), or the combined oral contraceptive pill as contraception.
TLDR
Adolescent patients choosing Depo-Provera may expect amenorrhea by the end of 6 months of therapy along with possible fatigue and early intervention may be needed with adolescents who choose Norplant or OCP to encourage better compliance with follow-up appointments.

Depressive symptomatology and quality of life assessment among women using the levonorgestrel-releasing intrauterine system: an observational study
TLDR
The LNG-IUS for the treatment of menorrhagia increases the QoL, and depression scores did not increase significantly in 6 months, but the pictorial blood assessment chart score (PBAC) considerably decreased.
