Hormonal Birth Control Pills May Raise the Risk of Depression
The study aimed to assess the influence of hormonal contraceptives on the risk for the first use of antidepressants and the first diagnosis of depression. For this purpose, the team of the researchers analyzed data from the Danish National Prescription Register and the Psychiatric Central Research Register from 1995 to 2013, including more than 1 million women aged from 15 to 34.
The study concluded that the risk was higher for teenage girls from 15 to 19 years old. Use of combined oral contraceptives or progestin-only pills among this age group was associated with 1.8 and 2.2 times greater relative risk of the first-time antidepressant use, respectively. Those using non-oral hormonal contraceptives were at 3 times greater risk.
