  • True PPD can last until it's treated to be honest. If you are really depressed you need to try things to help. A good vitamin b complex, exercise, diet changes, herbal treatments, etc and if those don't help try meds.

    The baby blues can last a couple months.

  • Yes both of those answers are true from my understanding. Its best not to just wait it out...seek therapy so it doesnt turn into simple depression that was never treated.
