What causes pregnancy related?

"There is growing evidence that the risk of developing a psychiatric disorder and in particular mood disorders increases the longer a woman is pregnant. The risks are reduced as soon as a woman is no longer pregnant, and continue for a good many years after this point. The exact biochemical mechanisms that operate to reduce the risk of developing depressive disorders and in particular post-natal depression, are now under investigation. In conclusion, it is believed that pregnancy may be a risk factor for developing depressive disorder. Future research should explore this topic in depth, clarify causal mechanisms and hopefully implement preventive strategies. summary: This paper lists potential risks and possible causes of different mental health disorders." - Anonymous Online Contributor

Can pregnancy related be cured?

"[The rate of pregnancy and childbirth complications related to severe preeclampsia and gestational hypertension is low. On the other hand, fetal death related to severe preeclampsia and gestational hypertension is not uncommon.] However, in spite of the high rate in fetal death, the cure rate is still low. This case suggests that the treatment of severe preeclampsia and gestational hypertension is not easy. Therefore, more and more women who have suffered severe preeclampsia or gestational hypertension will undergo prenatal ultrasonography scans to confirm and monitor the fetal wellbeing and wellbeing after birth." - Anonymous Online Contributor
