Is it normal to get postpartum 3 years later?

I have a question for you to post is it possible/normal to have postpartum 3 yrs later. My daughter just turned three, and ever since her 3rd birthday in August, I have felt worthless, angry, sad, and so much more. The worst is feeling like my man is cheating on me or no longer wants to be with me. I have never been the jealous type or the kind to mistrust him, and he hasn’t ever given me a reason to. He is the best man and daddy. He works hard and long hours to support us. I feel tired all the time and have 0 energy or enthusiasm for anything. Does anyone else feel this way, or am I crazy?

I had PPD after both my boys and my doctor said it could develop within one year

Go to doc, see if your thyroid is ok

No you have low testosterone and your hormone levels need to be checked. It’s a simple blood test to check them. Look into biote pellets they will change your like and your husband as well

Sound more like depression and resentment. Low energy, anger, hurt,sad,all are symptoms. Nothing is wrong with seeking help.

Unfortunately it’s not PPD it’s most likely depression from things in life an sometimes your body changes and life changes you after children an your moods will go crazy and yiu think you are too, if it’s to much for you either talk with someone and see if that helps you feel better getting things off your mind and then possibly talk to your doctor if worrys you

It sounds like depression. See your doctor and explain how you’re feeling.

I’ve often think about this. I have a 17 month old and I think I developed it later. Idk what it is. The only way to get to the bottom of it is talk to a doctor. Sometimes meds will help and sometimes it’s talk therapy.

Ppd is supposed to be gone by 6 months if you are depressed ots just regular depression

My son is 3 and you literally just described my every emotion. I can not even explain how exactly there I am with you.

That’s just depression…

Probably been there all along just realizing it now

It does sound like you’re experiencing depression or anxiety…however it’s probably not post partum because you’re past the window of the hormone fluctuations from birth to be the cause.
That doesn’t make it any less real and that doesn’t mean you don’t need to confront it any less.
You do.
I would start by speaking with your doctor and/or trying to get an appointment with mental health clinic

It could be depression or you could have an imbalance somewhere. I’d go see your gp, have a chat and get a full blood work up done. Best of luck!

It’s not considered post partum depression if the onset is after 12 months. You are experiencing good old fashioned depression.

I wouldnt think its PPD but plain ol’ depression unfortunately. Talk to your family doctor!

Have you had blood work done? Thryoid issues can cause anxiety, depression. Mood swings etc. Also vitamin deficiencies. A lot changes in the body during and after pregnancy so things may be a little out of whack. I would see your dr and go from there.

Doubtful it’s PPD at this point, but it could definitely be depression or anxiety. See your doctor.

So much respect to you for listening to yourself and recognizing the changes!!! Def talk to your doc. You need check your labs and make sure there isn’t a reason for the abrupt change. But really. Just recognizing it is a huge deal.

3 is a very very rough age and it can drain the best,most patient and understanding parent. And if yall are home together most of the time,your probably worn the hell out. Start trying to carve out some time for yourself to recharge.contrary to popular belief,taking care of yourself is indeed helping you to be a better mommy💛

I do! My son is 3 and for the past 8 months I’ve been exhausted no matter how many hours I sleep, I have ZERO energy, I feel empty or sad all the time! I have feelings in the back of my mind that my kids would be better off with someone better then me even though I know it’s probably not true! I’m stressed and seem angry a lot… I yell and never used to! I feel crazy and my doctor is finally starting to listen to me and order some test! But my blood work seems normal besides very low vit d and she prescribed me iron… nothing seems to help so I feel ya!! It’s discouraging and exhausting and I just want some magic answer… the only diff is I’m a single mom doing it all alone and I never even feel like going out to do anything anymore because I’m soooo tired all the time… I pray you feel better and figure it out also!

I have always wanted the best for me and my lover We live together so happily that we had never have issues which we can’t resolve. He was the best for me. We have been married for over 2 years now. I was lost in confusion when he told me he don’t want our marriage anymore, this happened when he came back from his trip with all the saying that he has found another woman he love so much and want a divorce. I pleaded with him and he should please consider our kids too. My words where so useless to him. I was so confused that I have to seek for help and solution when I came across this prophetess. he told me what I need to do so I did and after 24 hours my lover came back apologizing for everything he has done and want us back again. Now I happy to share this with everyone for what Dr goko Long has done for me. You can also seek help from him by contacting him email address :([email protected] com)

Age? Early menopause? Hot flashes, feeling miserable, periods not normal, mood changes? I was 30.

Have your thyroid checked

Just call it a different name. Like… I’m emotionally exhausted and need some help

PPD is a hormonal imbalance & usually only last about 9-12 months, I will agree, see your Dr & have complete blood work done. Which by the way should be done every yr…a little FYI

That sounds like straight up depression. I think theres a time frame for it to be considered pp depression. I go through depressive stages often and I know its not fun. I have no healthcare though so getting treated is out the window.

My advice, go to your dr. You could be suffering from depression or maybe a hormone imbalance. Which can be regulated through meds. And/Or seek a therapist and try to work out why you feel the way you do.
