Title: The bipolarity features in women with the postpartum depressive symptoms

Abstract:

The aim of this dissertation has been to assess the prevalence of the bipolarity features (as measured by the Mood Disorder Questionnaire, Hypomania Checklist-32/16, and The ‘Highs’ Questionnaire) in women presenting with the symptoms of postpartum depression (PPD; as measured by the Edinburgh Postnatal Depression Scale). The three-facet relationship between personality profiles, PPD symptom, and features of bipolarity have also been analysed. Finally, the ‘unipolar’ and ‘bipolar’ samples of depressive patients have been compared in terms of the severity of affective symptoms with onset in pregnancy. Overall, 464 subjects have been enrolled into the cross-sectional study. Conclusions: 1. The bipolarity features (as measured by the MDQ) have been significantly more prevalent in the EPDS-positive women, as compared to the subjects lacking the PPD symptoms. No significant relationships have been observed between the EPDS scores and the scores obtained in the other ‘bipolarity tests’. 2. High-trait neuroticism has been linked to the higher likelihood of developing the PPD symptoms. Conversely, subjects with high-trait extraversion and high-trait agreeableness have been less likely to meet the EPDS criterion. 3. As compared to the subjects with the symptoms of ‘unipolar’ PPD, the women presenting with the symptoms of ‘bipolar’ PPD have been characterized by higher-level neuroticism. 4. Both the more severe irritability and more frequent crying during pregnancy have been indicative for the development of the ‘bipolar’ PPD symptoms, rather than the ‘unipolar’ PPD symptoms.
