What other mental health conditions are common during pregnancy?
Hi I am 2 months pregnant and want to know what other mental health conditions are common during pregnancy.
@madhu Hi Anxiety is common during pregnancy. Pregnancy also can trigger obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). Anxiety and OCD can occur alone or with other mental health conditions, including depression.
If you have anxiety and stress, tell your ob-gyn. Also tell them about any stressful life events. These may include losing a loved one, having a loved one who is ill, living far from your friends and family, or moving. Not having support and resources for your pregnancy also can be a major source of stress. Talk with your ob-gyn so you can get the help you need.
