Pregnancy Loss Linked to Depression in Young Men
Young men whose partners have had an abortion or miscarriage are twice as likely to develop depression than those whose partners have never been pregnant, a new study has found. Researchers from the University of Queensland drew on data on 2,382 young people born between 1981 and 1984 at Mater Hospital in Brisbane. Of the cohort, 49 percent were male. Men whose partners had had miscarriages were three times as likely to suffer from anxiety than men whose partners had never experienced a pregnancy.
