Disorders of female reproductive life

This chapter covers psychiatric disorder in relation to pregnancy, childbirth and motherhood, and the menstrual cycle.

It should be noted at some point that there are general effects of gender on health. Females consult more frequently for all health problems, including neurotic conditions, throughout life. Prevalence of neurotic conditions is higher in females than males. Males have an excess of conduct disorder as children, and of criminality and substance misuse as adults. Males with psychotic disorders such as schizophrenia do worse than females. Females live longer. It has been suggested that men may need special services (Kennedy, 2001).
