Postpartum depression is very different from “baby blues”. It is actually part of a group of conditions called “perinatal mood disorders.” These mood disorders involve more than just feeling depressed, and they can occur in 15% of women, during pregnancy as well as afterwards. Postpartum depression has a wide impact on patients’ marital life, with a constellation of emotional, physical and cognitive symptoms.
More specifically, in relation to the sexual health of the couple, there is a low sex drive from the female partner who suffers from depression. To help improve sexual desire and built confidence and self-esteem in these women, our clinic offers invasive as well as non-invasive treatments to resolve decreased sexual desire.
