Anything of which I say is merely opinion based on what I have read, and I am only 19, but this is my insight.
This site has a few words on the matter.
Personally, regarding any medical feedback or thought, you could be just getting use to it again. I say give yourself more time before making any real choice on what it could be.
I have PPD and am being treated with meds. I think the best way to know if it's real PPD as opposed to normal ups and downs is to ask yourself how badly it is impacting your life. With me it was anxiety and it completely took over. There were very few "normal" moments and it was having a very negative impact on both me and my son. If you are in doubt, it is probably best to talk to your Dr. I am very glad I did. Good luck to you!
How did it go talking to your doctor. Zoloft is a great med for post partum depression because you can bf on it. If you are not bfing it is also just a good antidepressant in general. If you try an antidepressant and feel better, well then that is a good thing isn't it. Worth a try...Good luck to you. PPD ***** and depression in general. Everything changes when you help your brain with some meds. Your outlook, your daily life, your guilt etc.
