REAL DISORDER WITH "NO NAME" 

Why are we no closer to fully understanding what causes Psychosis?

 

BECAUSE:

 

Progress was short-lived as a consequence of misinterpretation and pride by an "old guard" psychiatrist  by the name of E.A. Strecker who set in motion the "vicious cycle" for future doctors, since the 1980's, who have and continue to fail new mothers. 

 

The medical world had already begun to connect the physiolgoical with the psychological - but the 'old school' psychiatrists misinterpreted the medical studies that proved hormonal fluctuation was at the root of PPD and PPP.

 

 

WHY WAS I THAT 1, OUT OF 1,000 - AND YET AGAIN,  1 OUT OF 3 & 4 WOMEN  WHO WOULD SUCCUMB TO POSTPARTUM PSYCHOSIS?

 

 

 

It is not a well-known, nor written fact in most medical literature, "lit reviews", that with subsequent childbirths the risk for PPP increases. New research found by me, on 11/22/05, has taken this once "rare" disorder from 1 in 1,000 women to 1.1 to 4.0 cases per 1,000 deliveries. 

 

How can PPP still be considered as "rare".  Old statistics claim that upon subsequent deliveries, risk for PPP increases to 1 in 3 to 4 women.  The new research did not give any percentages or numbers regarding PPP risk for women upon future deliveries. More research is warranted for this and for finding out the answers to the remaining PPP puzzle.
