Several studies have been conducted on women and depression, and the results conclusively show that women suffer from major depressive disorders nearly twice as often as men. What’s more, the incidence of depressive disorders increases during the reproductive years of a woman’s life due to what is normally considered hormonal risk factors. Women become more susceptible to depressive disorders at a time when their hormones are in a state of flux, like during childbirth, menstrual period, and perimenopause. Moreover, the risk of depression in women decrease considerably once they undergo menopause.
