Are we overlooking obsessive-compulsive disorder during and after pregnancy? Some arguments for a peripartum onset specifier.

Arch Womens Ment Health 2020 May 26. Epub 2020 May 26.

Lakehead University, Thunder Bay, Ontario, Canada.

The peripartum period appears to be a potent trigger of obsessive-compulsive disorder in women; however, due to the lack of awareness and routine screening, women with obsessive-compulsive disorder may be at risk of under- or misdiagnosis. Unfortunately, the missed diagnosis or misdiagnosis can have serious consequences including symptom persistence, compromised ability to care for the newborn, poor quality of life and unnecessary reporting of the mother to child protective services. It is argued that future iterations of the DSM consider expanding the scope of the peripartum onset specifier to include obsessive-compulsive disorder to increase its detection, diagnosis and management.

The relationship between conformity to male and female gender norms and depression during pregnancy.

Arch Womens Ment Health 2019 12 24;22(6):809-815. Epub 2019 Oct 24.

Faculty of Biomedical and Health Sciences, Nursing Department, Universidad Europea de Madrid, Universidad Europea de Madrid c/Tajo s/n 28670, Villaviciosa de Odón, Madrid, Spain.

To analyze whether there is an association between conformity to male and female gender norms and the Edinburgh Postnatal Depression Scale (EPDS) score as an indicator of depression during pregnancy, a cross-sectional study was made to a sample of 200 pregnant women being seen at any of the public primary care centers in Segovia (Spain) for the prenatal care. A score of 13 points or higher on the Spanish version of the EPDS is considered to be an indicator of antenatal depression. The Conformity to Feminine Norms Inventory (CFNI-84) and the Conformity to Masculine Norms Inventory (CMNI-94) were used to determine the degree of conformity to gender norms. Read More

Sex differences in symptomatology of psychosis-risk patients and in prediction of psychosis.

Arch Womens Ment Health 2020 Jun 28;23(3):339-349. Epub 2019 Aug 28.

Department of Psychiatry and Psychotherapy, Medical Faculty, Heinrich-Heine University Düsseldorf, Bergische Landstraße 2, 40629, Düsseldorf, Germany.

Sex differences may be important for understanding underlying pathophysiological mechanisms and developing effective preventions and treatments of mental disorders. Despite sex differences in the onset of psychosis, patients at clinical high risk for psychosis (CHR) are underinvestigated for sex effects, especially with respect to models for prediction of conversion to psychosis. We studied psychopathological sex differences in referrals to a German early detection service and in its subgroup of converters and examined sex-specific psychopathological prediction models.

Reflections on the first conference of the International Marcé Society for Perinatal Mental Health convened in India, a middle-income country.

Arch Womens Ment Health 2019 10 4;22(5):637-640. Epub 2019 Sep 4.

Department of Psychiatry, National Institute of Mental Health and Neurosciences, Bengaluru, India.

Since its establishment in 1980, all biennial conferences of The International Marcé Society for Perinatal Mental Health had been convened in high-income nations. Relatively little consideration had been given to the experiences and needs of most women who live in the world's low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). The aim is to provide an account of the first conference convened in India, a middle-income country. Read More

Interaction between the functional SNP rs2070951 in NR3C2 gene and high levels of plasma corticotropin-releasing hormone associates to postpartum depression.

Arch Womens Ment Health 2020 Jun 6;23(3):413-420. Epub 2019 Aug 6.

Hospital Universitari Psiquiàtric Institut Pere Mata, IISPV, Universitat Rovira i Virgili, CIBERSAM, Ctra de l'Institut Pere Mata, s/n., 43206, Reus, Tarragona, Spain.

Postpartum depression (PPD) is a common mood disorder that occurs after delivery with a prevalence of approximately 10%. Recent reports have related placental corticotropin-releasing hormone (pCRH) to postpartum depressive symptoms. The aim of this study was to determine whether pCRH, ACTH, and cortisol (measured 48 h after delivery) and glucocorticoid and mineralocorticoid receptor genotypes (NR3C1 and NR3C2) and their interaction are associated with PPD.

The oxytocinergic system in PTSD following traumatic childbirth: endogenous and exogenous oxytocin in the peripartum period.

Arch Womens Ment Health 2020 Jun 6;23(3):317-329. Epub 2019 Aug 6.

Department of Psychiatry, Amsterdam UMC, location AMC, Meibergdreef 9, Amsterdam, 1105 AZ, The Netherlands.

Birth experiences can be traumatic and may give rise to PTSD following childbirth (PTSD-FC). Peripartum neurobiological alterations in the oxytocinergic system are highly relevant for postpartum maternal behavioral and affective adaptions like bonding and lactation but are also implicated in the response to traumatic events. Animal models demonstrated that peripartum stress impairs beneficial maternal postpartum behavior. Read More

Transdermal estradiol for postpartum depression: results from a pilot randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study.

Arch Womens Ment Health 2020 Jun 1;23(3):401-412. Epub 2019 Aug 1.

Section on Behavioral Endocrinology, National Institute of Mental Health, National Institutes of Health, Bethesda, MD, USA.

Postpartum depression (PPD) is a common complication following delivery, though evidence-based treatment options are limited. This study explores the feasibility and efficacy of outpatient PPD treatment with transdermal estradiol (TE). In a pilot, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial, women with PPD were randomized to receive transdermal 17β-estradiol (100 mcg/day) or placebo patch. Read More

Psychological treatments for depression among women experiencing intimate partner violence: findings from a randomized controlled trial for behavioral activation in Goa, India.

Arch Womens Ment Health 2019 12 30;22(6):779-789. Epub 2019 Jul 30.

Department of Psychiatry, University of Toronto and Sinai Health System, 600 University Ave, Rm914A, Toronto, Ontario, M5T 1R8, Canada.

Intimate partner violence (IPV) strongly predicts depression, but it is unknown if women experiencing IPV can benefit from depression treatments in contexts where depression and IPV are prevalent. This study explored whether women experiencing IPV in Goa, India, can benefit from the Healthy Activity Program (HAP), a culturally adapted behavioral activation treatment, compared with enhanced usual care (EUC). Cross-sectional and longitudinal analyses were performed on data from a clinical trial. Read More

Longitudinal assessment of symptoms of postpartum mood disorder in women with and without a history of depression.

Arch Womens Ment Health 2020 Jun 26;23(3):391-399. Epub 2019 Jul 26.

Institute of Psychology, Department of Clinical Psychology and Psychotherapy, University of Zurich, Binzmühlestrasse 14/ 26, 8050, Zürich, Switzerland.

The main objective of the present study was to report the incidence, recurrence, prevalence, and course of depressive symptoms during the transition from late pregnancy to the postpartum period in healthy women with and without a history of depression. The study also aimed to examine the predictive value of a history of premenstrual syndrome (PMS)/premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD) for peripartum depressive symptoms. A sample of 687 healthy women with (n = 192) and without (n = 495) a history of depression were included in the present analyses. Read More

Maternal behavioral health symptom profiles in early family life: complexity and context.

Arch Womens Ment Health 2020 Jun 11;23(3):429-439. Epub 2019 Jul 11.

Department of Population Family and Reproductive Health, Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, 615 North Wolfe Street, Baltimore, MD, 21205, USA.

Behavioral health problems affect at least 15% of mothers, but few studies have examined how different problems cluster together. Characterizing symptom profiles and their correlates early in the family life cycle can extend existing understanding beyond that provided by studies based on single problems. Mothers in the Fragile Families and Child Wellbeing study, a national birth cohort of racially diverse and mostly unmarried mothers (N = 4205), reported depression, anxiety, and substance dependence symptoms.
