Clinical Depression May Reduce A Woman’s Chance Of Having A Baby

Medical Daily (5/25, Venosa) reports that clinical depression may reduce “a woman’s chance of having a baby,” research suggests. The study authors theorize that dysregulation of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis “may have an influence on the menstrual cycle and a woman’s ability to conceive.” The findings of the 2,100-patient study were published online April 27 in the American Journal of Obstetrics & Gynecology.
