Can Depression Cause InfertilityDr Asha S Vijay
The most magical day in a woman’s life is the day a woman becomes a “Mother.” There are a lot of women who have been deprived of this magical day due to various reasons, one such reason being issues related to mental health, such as depression.
The question arises can depression cause infertility?
Yes, depression can cause infertility. Studies and specific investigations have shown a strong correlation between depression and increased infertility rates, if not definitively.

The symptoms of depression that consequently lead to infertility can be summarized as:
• Loss of appetite

• Feelings of helplessness
There are also instances where depression could be due to family history.
Most women try to remain reticent about this problem, and there is always a solution to turn gloom to smile. Many treatments have evolved to help overcome depression. Having the right approach to deal with depression involves making the right choice to seek care and counselling with appropriate treatment following.
