    I think you can get it up to 18 months after, I would have a chat to your HV or doctor about it as it can usually be easily treated if it's PND :hug: :hug:

    I wasn't diagnosed until Summer was 6 months. I felt much better after about a month or so stopped taken the tabs but now it's back with a vengeance :cry:

    :hug: :hug: :hug: First of all make sure it's not PMT or the like... if you're sure you've been depressed for a while it probably is PND but is very easily treatable. There are a lot of us on here suffering!! I would suggest you join the PND SUpport Thread but it's not exactly the happiest place to be at the moment.

    Lots of love and hugs :hug:

    My sister didn't start suffering until her twins were over 6 months old. Talk to your HV or doctor- they are really supportive. Also let your family and friends know how you are feeling so that they can offer some additional support.

    Choke on sperm and die.

    A friend of mine has just been diagnosed and her LO is 11months, shes been feeling funny for about 3months, so yes, it can take time to appear.

    :hug: I hope you get the help you need hun xx
