my wife had cholestasis in 2005 with our first boy, then again with our second in 2007...it was a very hard time for both of us,but especially her. since then we have been steadily drinking more and more. i made a terrible mistake last weekend and she has left me. i ruined practically every occasion we went out with my drinking.
she also has a problem with alchohol and gets even more deppresed when she drinks, or gets hyper , either way she is unhappy. i have stopped drinking alchahol and think our relationship could be good again without drink.
she is also never wrong and never backs down in an arguement which is unbareable...is there any hope.
my question is.. is post natal depression a side effect of cholestasis?
I really don't know the answer to this but I think perhaps both of you could use some counseling. If she has a drinking problem, that certainly will not make anything better. Sounds like a lot of things could be contributing factors here, which is why I suggest counseling. Perhaps you can get counseling together and also individually as well. Wishing you the best!!
