Women who experience multiple traumatic events during childhood or adolescence have a significantly increased risk of depression in the years leading into menopause (known as perimenopause). Depression among women, during their transition to menopause is common, and it has not been possible to identify those at increased risk for major depressive disorder (MDD). Those women who experienced their first traumatic event in their teens are especially susceptible to depression during perimenopause, even if they have not been diagnosed with depression previously.
