OK, so this is my second baby and I'm about 8 months postpartum now. About six weeks ago I started feeling depressed and then that turned into panic attacks. I haven't started my cycle again, but last time I started again right at six months pp. I can vaguely remember having some anxiety come up right before I started cycling again (like a month or so before), but I don't remember exactly how that all lined up. In any case, it's much worse this time compared with last time.
I'm wondering if anyone else out there has had a similar experience with getting ppa or ppd right before the return of fertility?
I should also add that my ppa has been more than just anxiety and panic attacks and is actually similar to hyperthyroid symptoms, but when I had my thyroid levels checked everything was within the normal range.
I would appreciate hearing what anyone thinks...
