What is a person with depression who wants to have a baby to do?
It is well established that infertility, and the process of going through fertility treatment, is associated with psychological distress, and with depression in particular (1). Of course, one of the primary methods used to treat depression is medication. In the U.S. antidepressants are one of the most frequently prescribed types of mediation, with selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) being the most common class. This begs the question, should fertility treatment patients (or pregnant women) struggling with depression be treated with antidepressant medications? What are the risks versus the benefits?
