Physical causes of depression in womenEdit
- Postpartum depression (also known as postnatal depression) – Dr. Ruta M Nonacs writes that while many women experience some mood changes after giving birth, "10-15% of women experience a more disabling and persistent form of mood disturbance (eg, postpartum depression, postpartum psychosis)."  When it occurs, the onset typically is within three months after delivery, and it may last for several months.
