Depression During Pregnancy: Ways To Cope With It!

Depression During Pregnancy: Ways To Cope With It!

Pregnancy is that wonderful and beautiful phase that most women rejoice about. However, many may find it hard to believe that pregnancy can bring with it a condition known as ‘antenatal depression’. This is a common condition in expecting mothers and should not be ignored.

Depression during pregnancy like regular depression is a clinical condition and requires further investigation and management. Pregnancy is related to the female hormones and therefore, mood swings are common (as during PMS and menopause). However, depressed pregnant women would typically have the following associated symptoms too.

  1. Altered eating habits
  2. Altered sleeping patterns (too much or too less)
  3. Loss of attention/ability to focus
  4. Losing interest in activities which usually interest the person
  5. Feeling very anxious
  6. Constant feeling of sadness
  7. Uncertainty about the future
  8. Feeling of worthlessness
  9. Suicidal tendencies

It has been noted about 25% of women can get depressed during pregnancy for varying periods of time. Some potential reasons for this are as below.

  1. Strained relationships: One of the most important factors for a healthy pregnancy is a happy relationship, not just with the partner, but with immediate and close family members with whom there is a high level of regular interaction.
  2. Work stress: For working women, a stressful office environment could take a toll on their moods.
  3. Previous miscarriages: This can cause anxiety and depression about possible repeat incident.
  4. Potential complications: If the periodic examinations showed up possibility for complications in pregnancy, the chance of depression in the mother increase.

How it affects pregnancy?

A depressed mother would not be able to care for herself and  therefore, the baby may not get adequate nutrition for its development. Additionally, the potential for nicotine and alcohol abuse increases, which also negatively impacts the baby’s growth. There could be low birth weight, premature birth and developmental delays after birth.

How it can be managed?

While the hormonal changes during pregnancy causes mood swings, diagnosing if it is depression is important. A consultation with a psychiatrist may be required for some women.

Some of the options available for treatment include support groups, individual counseling, and medications.

  1. It is important to understand that this is a common condition and you are not the only one going through this. Talking to other women who feel depressed can help in mood uplifting of all involved.
  2. If you are too shy about it, individual counseling could be the next best thing.
  3. Stress management including light exercise, music, meditation, rest, diet, and support from close friends and family are highly recommended.
  4. Since most antidepressants would reach the baby, it is advisable to avoid these less you need them as a last resort.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

If you have responded to serta before, consult a psychiatrist and request him to prescribe the same medicines now as well. If not, he might increase the dose or change to a different medicine.

You know, you have associated smoking with ease in defecating and relaxation. The truth is that nicotine craving builds up stress, which is then relieved by smoking. It does not have any role in relaxation. You can substitute this association with preferably normal chewing gum or if not helping, a nicotine chewing gum. Remember, you just have to give a conditioning association of any kind to your subconscious.

Is Your Teenager Suffering From Depression - How To Identify?

Is Your Teenager Suffering From Depression - How To Identify?

Teenagers face a huge amount of pressure, from puberty changes to questions regarding their identity and where they fit in. With this kind of uncertainty and instability, it is generally not easy to distinguish amongst depression and the developing hormonal changes. However, teen depression goes way beyond general teenage moodiness. It is a serious medical issue that affects each part of a teenager's life. Luckily, it is treatable and parents can offer assistance.

Here are a few signs that can help determine whether a teenager has depression:
Genuinely depressed teenagers regularly think, talk about, or make attention gathering attempts at suicide. However, a disturbing and increasing number of teenagers’ suicide attempts do happen in reality. Therefore, self-destructive or suicidal thoughts or behaviors need to be considered important and taken seriously.

  1. A teenager who stays sad, cranky, void or in an irritable mood and believes that life meaningless and good for nothing, is suffering from depression.
  2. They may experience a loss of enthusiasm for games or exercises they used to appreciate or a withdrawal from loved ones or an inescapable inconvenience seeing someone.
  3. They experience changes in appetite, critical weight gain or loss.
  4. A depressed teenager has a tendency to indulge in increased late-night activities, has too much or too little sleep, faces inconvenience getting up in the morning and is regularly late for school.
  5. A teenager who is depressed suffers from physical agitation, paces forward and backward and displays over the top or dull behaviors.
  6. He/she may have a loss of energy, social withdrawal, withdrawal from regular exercises, or fatigue.
  7. He/she may make basic remarks about themselves, conduct issues at school or at home, or become excessively sensitive to being rejected.
  8. A teenager who is depressed usually has poor performance in school, a drop in test results, or a poor attendance.
  9. He/she frequently complains about physical pain (headaches, stomach aches).
  10. He/she thinks or writes about death, gives away the most loved assets with remarks like "You would be better off without me."

Remember that a lot of these signs and symptoms are similar to the conduct of an ordinary teenager. That is the reason why a specialist or a psychologist should be considered in order to determine whether your child has depression or not. In case you are uncertain if your child is depressed or simply being an adolescent, consider to what extent these signs have been going on, how extreme they are, and how different your child is acting from his or her typical self.

Depression is a natural condition. It is not something to be embarrassed about and it should be dealt with. A mix of medical and psychological behavioral treatments are regularly prescribed for teenagers. Request a referral to a psychological wellness clinician from your doctor or medical attendant, a neighborhood recreational center or healing center, friends, kins, care groups, or clinicians. It is important that the entire family get instruction and support about the disorder as patients suffering from depression need company and support. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Psychologist.

I am 21 years boy. My speaking speed is very fast, which is bit difficult to understand for many people and I have to articulate again with little more effort. Its from childhood no one noticed nor even me, but now in college, I have to attend and participate in various public speaking activities, I always try to escape from all these but I want a solution now. I had visited ENT and Speech Therapist, endoscopy was done and vocal chord was fine. Doctors suggested me to read everyday few pages alphabet by alphabet a bit louder for two years. This may be the solution, I followed this for a couple of week but its very embarrassing for me to do in front of friends and family members. This practice I cannot continue further. I don't stammer or stutter but I speak very fast and when recorded my voice even I can't understand full sentences of mine. Please suggest any fast method to overcome this problem, I am very depressed, shocked,unwilling to live life prosperously.

You have learnt your speech over last many years. It’s a daunting task to unlearn the fast speech and re learn it the new way. Please be prepared to put in some time and lot of patience and hard work to get over it. Speech therapy is a way to reach your goals. Accompanying anxiety and impatience may be deterrents in your recovery. Consult a psychiatrist personally for a review. It would certainly help. Good luck.

Not at all. But because of your age, there may be something to look into affecting your feelings in particular. Please meet with a counselor and a doctor and get some help. This is your last chance to resolve any past issues and permanently too. But some of signs do not look good and will need immediate attention. Because you are young you can sort it out easier than if you neglected too much.

Dear lybrate-user. I can understand. We cannot help you unless we speak to your son. There could be many reasons for his frustration and lack of interest in his BTech. There could be some disappointment. We need to talk to him to know what troubles him in such a magnitude. I suggest online counseling for him. Take care.

I am 59 now. Since last 8 years, flat just above me there are 11 heads including 5 teens are residing and running hammering making sound of utensils etc , causing mental agony. Consulting so many one dear one advised me to feel always immediately after entering into the residence that some one is doing such a nuisance. This action has given me some relaxation. Now due to this I feel unrest and heaviness in heart as if I have been facing some sort of interview for job. Please advise
