How long after you give birth can post partum depression affect you? Like if you didn't have it immediately after birth could it start showing up 3-4 months later out of the blue?
I got the Mirena IUD and only had one period then they stopped so maybe it's just horomones while my cycle figures out what's going on?
I don't know but I have been really emotional, irrational, not feeling myself. Just kind of sad and feeling a little hopeless...
I've enrolled to start college but I missed the deadlines (didn't have a laptop) so I won't be able to start until September. I can't imagine doing this until September. (SAHM, one 2 1/2 yr old and one 4 month old). I love my kids, I love my SO, I love my life honestly I just feel down.
Doctor isn't an option since I'm on OHP (like Medicaid) and around here none of the OHP doctors prescribe anything for pain or anxiety/depression.
I don't really think I am depressed, I'm just wondering if PPD can take several months to set in.
