Resumo

The aim of this study was to verify if the fall of plasma concentrations of steroid hormones in the first 12 h postpartum would be associated with changes in the same period in the emotional state of healthy women. Subjective and hormonal data were collected from 14 women (28.5 +/- 7.1 years old) at zero (only hormones), 1, 2, 6 and 12 h after delivery. Subjective measures were taken using the Visual Analogue Mood Scale (YAMS), which consists of four factors (anxiety, sedation, discomfort, and cognitive impairment). Cortisol was measured by radioimmunoassay and estradiol and progesterone by chemiluminescence immunoassay. Women reported a significant increase in anxiety (relative increase: 43.8% +/- 77.6) and discomfort (125.9% +/- 218.5) within the 12 h postpartum. There were also significant decreases in the plasma concentration of estradiol (relative decrease: 96.5% +/- 3.1), progesterone (78.1% +/- 8.7) and cortisol (71.7% +/- 18.0). The relative decrease in estradiol concentrations was significantly correlated with the relative increase in anxiety. No significant associations between progesterone and cortisol concentrations and subjective measures were observed. Changes of estradiol but not of progesterone and cortisol concentrations were associated with changes in the reported emotional state of healthy women in the immediate postpartum period. The role of this association as a predictor of mood disorders in the postpartum period should be explored in further studies. (AU)
