Re: PPD, Baby Blues and Birth Control
It did not help for me. I was on the pill from 3 weeks post-pardum and was diagnosed with PPD 3 months post-pardum. I was shocked since I did not have negative feelings toward the baby and wasn't moody all the time, it just seemed like when I was overly-exhausted I would be really weepy and not be able to get a grip, but I would get a little sleep and be fine for a few days. I just thought I was too sleep-deprived and never would have guessed it was PPD. I just didn't feel like myself and seemed to be picking stupid fights with DH over nothing and I am normally very easy-going and we NEVER fight, especially over little things. I just couldn't control it. Anyway, my doc prescribed Paxil and that has worked wonders. I feel more like myself again. The birth control didn't do anything for my PPD.
