Women in reality have more responsibility with raising kids, cleaning house, shopping, getting kids to school, cooking ,meals, doing laundry, getting kids to events, SDr's appts, and much more to list here. There can also be hormonal problems after childbirth. One of the things I know can help is to take a few minutes to listen to some relaxation CD's or een some slow soothing music. Even some feally get up and dance music will lift the spirits. St Johns wart is also a great natural thing for stress and depression. Best of luck to you and hope this helps

I honestly dont think it is more common in women, I just think itshows that on statistic because women are more comfortable admitting to being depressed and getting help, while some men feel it isnt very accepted or people would think they were whining or not being men to admit it. I am a woman, and personally have seen way more men, seem like they are depressed, but they dont admit it. I am not sure if all depression can be cured without medicene. I believe in medicene being a last resort in depression, but sometimes I belive it is needed.
