Wondering when the treatment will start working is the most common question we get. Every person is different in their treatment plan and their recovery. Factors such as how long you’ve suffered from PPD, the severity of symptoms, efficiency and effectiveness of your healthcare providers, and following your treatment plan precisely all come into play. When a person receives effective and appropriate treatment (e.g., medication, therapy, support), recovery happens quicker. Recovery is not an overnight process but it will happen. Try to be patient and slowly the good days will outnumber the bad days.
